What’s the best type of delivery to be bowled by the bowler if the oppnents need a 4 off the last ball?

If you were the captain of your team, what type of ball would you advice to your bowler.

….and yeah, who would that bowler be (some captains may prefer a spinner thats why)
good idea Monti, but the bowler has to be totally focussed in order to avoid that bouncer being called a “wide”

Chosen Answer:

A bouncer

In that kind of a situation,the batsmen expect the bowler to bowl a yorker or a low full toss so they are prepared to face that kind of a delivery.
If a bouncer is bowled,i think the probability of the batsman scoring a 4 will be low.

I also liked the answer by Gladiator,a slow off or leg cutter outside off stump would also be a good option.You have to bowl something which the batsman is not expecting.

Edit-
A wide ball will not hurt much.You still need 3 to win and the batsman will strill have to look for a boundary.
I can’t think of many batsmen who can execute a hook shot properly and that too under pressure and that too while thinking that the bowler would bowl a slow ball or a yorker.

  1. a dot ball… hehe..

    Well, if a spinner is bowling… would ask a deep fine leg & bowl a surprise faster delivery following the batsman’s feet movement… york him on the toe…
    nyways he would hav only 1 option to hit it in the deep fine leg area.

  2. A bouncer

  3. i think a slow ball with the field inside the ring
    and by a pacer
    because batsmen will expect a fast ball………………………………………

  4. That would definitely be a medium pacer.
    I would just advise him to bowl a BOUNCER.
    That bowler when decided to bowl a bouncer would had been careful of Wides.Or a yorker right in the block hole should avoud the batsmans from hitting a bouandary/six.Both of these are good ideas & a yorker right in the block hole would be a better idea.

  5. If the Bowler is S. Pollock

    I would just advise him to bowl a Slow BOUNCER.
    That bowler when decided to bowl a bouncer would had been careful of Wides.Or a yorker right in the block hole should avoid the batsmans from swinging the bat infull flow or hitting Both of these are good ideas & a yorker right in the block hole would be a better idea. and avoid slow fulltoss, overpitch, Goodlength & wide ball.

    If a Spinner- Harbhajan
    Doosara will be perfect or fast plumb yorker ball
