How do you increase left-arm in bowling?
Most left-arm spinners bowl around the wicket, aiming to drift the ball towards the bat before turning the ball away.
- The middle joints of the index and middle fingers are well spread across the seam.
- Turning the wrist and the index finger generate the spin on the ball, turning the ball in a clockwise direction.
How do you bat a left arm spin?

- Open stance. Align yourself up to the angle that the ball is arriving:

- Stepping out to drive. Lean towards the ball with head more rather than shoulder.
- Foot position.
