How to bowl off-spin?

Off spin is bowled by an off spinner who uses his or her fingers to spin the ball from a right-handed batsman's off side to the leg side (that is, towards the right-handed batsman, or away from a left-handed batsman).

The middle joints of the index and middle fingers are well spread across the seam. The ball rests against the third finger but the thumb has little involvement.

Turning the wrist and the index finger generate the spin on the ball, turning the ball in a clockwise direction.


Use your first two fingers to give the ball a good "rip" at the point of delivery.
