Left Arm Orthodox Spin
LEFT-ARM ORTHODOX SPIN also known as SLOW LEFT ARM ORTHODOX SPIN BOWLNG is a type of Left Arm Finger Leg spin
Leg spin
bowling in the sport of cricket . Left-arm orthodox spin is bowled by a left-arm bowler using the fingers to spin the ball from right to left of the cricket pitch (from the bowler's perspective). Left arm orthodox spin bowlers generally attempt to drift the ball in the air into a right-handed batsman, and then turn it away from the batsman (towards off-stump) upon landing on the pitch. The drift and turn in the air are attacking techniques. The left-arm orthodox spin like an off break or off spin is also a bowling action

Slider (cricket)
In cricket , a SLIDER is a type of delivery bowled by a wrist spin bowler. Whereas a topspinner is released with the thumb facing the batsman, a slider is bowled in a similar manner to a legbreak, but instead of imparting sidespin with the third finger, the bowler allows his fingers to roll down the back of the ball, providing a mixture of sidespin and backspin. Whereas a topspinner tends to dip more quickly and bounce higher than a normal delivery, a slider does the opposite: it carries to a fuller length and bounces less than the batsman might expect. The sliders will typically head towards the batsman with a scrambled seam (with the ball not spinning in the direction of the seam, so the seam direction is not constant, unlike in conventional spin bowling). This has less effect on the flight and bounce but absence of leg spin may deceive the batsman. Frequently the slider is bowled with a mixture of side spin and backspin

Topspinner
A TOPSPINNER is a type of delivery bowled by a cricketer bowling either wrist spin or finger spin . In either case, the bowler imparts the ball with top spin by twisting it with his or her fingers prior to delivery. In both cases, the topspinner is the halfway house between the stock delivery and the wrong'un - in the wrist spinner's case his googly , and in the finger spinner's case his doosra . CONTENTS * 1 Mechanics * 2 Finger spin * 3 Wrist Spin * 4 References MECHANICSA TOPSPINNER is released over the top of the fingers in such a way that it spins forward in the air towards the batsman in flight. The forward spinning motion impedes air travelling over the ball, but assists air travelling underneath. The difference in air pressure above and underneath the ball (described as the Magnus effect
Magnus effect
) acts as a downward force, meaning that the ball falls earlier and faster than normal

Full Toss
A FULL TOSS is a type of delivery in the sport of cricket . It describes any delivery that reaches the batsman without bouncing on the pitch first. A full toss which reaches the batsman above the waist is called a beamer . This is not a valid delivery and will lead to a no-ball penalty, but, like the bouncer , is sometimes used as an intimidation tactic. Other types of full toss are rarely deliberate, as they can be very easy to hit. A low full toss is frequently the result of an error made while attempting to bowl a yorker , which bounces at the batsman's feet. Occasionally a full toss can surprise a batsman so effectively that he is unable to play it properly, and this can lead to a wicket , but few bowlers rely on this. There have been occasions in which a bowler intentionally bowls a full toss to achieve maximum swing into the base of the stumps

Overarm Bowling
In cricket , OVERARM BOWLING refers to a delivery in which the bowler's hand is above shoulder height. When cricket originated all bowlers delivered the ball underarm where the bowler's hand is below waist height. However, so the story goes, John Willes became the first bowler to use a "round-arm" technique A roundarm delivery is where the hand is between shoulder height and waist height; After roundarm was legalised in 1835 with the bowler allowed to deliver the ball at shoulder height, it was not long before some bowlers began to raise the hand above the shoulder. The Laws of Cricket
Cricket
at that time directed that such a delivery be called a no ball . In 1845, the law was strengthened by removing the benefit of doubt from the bowler in height of hand questions, the umpire's view of the incident being final

Off Break
OFF BREAK is a type of delivery in the sport of cricket . It is the attacking delivery of an off spin bowler . Off breaks are known as off spinners. An off break is bowled by holding the cricket ball in the palm of the hand with the seam running across under all the fingers. As the ball is released, the fingers roll down the right side of the ball (for a right-handed bowler), giving the ball a clockwise spin as seen from behind. When the ball bounces on the pitch , the spin causes it to deviate towards the right from the bowler's perspective, this is to the left from the batsman 's point of view or towards the leg side of a right-handed batsman. The ball spins away from the off side . An off spin bowler will bowl mostly off breaks, varying them by adjusting the line and length of the deliveries. Off breaks are considered to be one of the easier spin deliveries for a right-handed batsman to play

Leg Break
A LEG BREAK is a type of delivery in the sport of cricket . It is a delivery of a right-handed leg spin bowler . A leg break is bowled by holding the cricket ball in the palm of the hand with the seam running across under all the fingers. As the ball is released, the wrist is rotated to the left and the ball flicked by the ring finger, giving the ball an anti-clockwise spin as seen from behind. When the ball bounces on the pitch , the spin causes it to deviate towards the left from the bowler's perspective; this is to the right from the batsman 's point of view, or towards the off side of a right-handed batsman. The ball spins away from the leg side , and this is where it gets the name leg break, meaning it breaks away from the leg. The turn is mostly when the ball pitches. A leg spin bowler will bowl mostly leg breaks, varying them by adjusting the line and length , and amount of side spin versus topspin of the deliveries

Teesra
The TEESRA, also known as the JALEBI , is a particular type of delivery by an off-spin bowler in the sport of cricket , which renowned off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq said he had invented. However upon closer inspection, the ball is simply an orthodox backspinner, a very common delivery that has been bowled by finger spinners as long as cricket has been played. The delivery was renamed in the Indian Cricket League by Saqlain Mushtaq . At that time Saqlain played for the Lahore Badshahs . The first person to face the teesra or Jalebi was Russel Arnold of Sri Lanka when he was correctly given LBW by the umpire . He was also the first person to get out at the hands of the teesra. He got out the fourth time a teesra had ever been bowled . The teesra made the news in the build-up to the first Test between England and Pakistan in 2012, when Saeed Ajmal claimed he would introduce the delivery into his repertoire

Flipper (cricket)
The FLIPPER is the name of a particular bowling delivery used in cricket , generally by a leg spin bowler . In essence it is a back spin ball. Squeezed out of the front of the hand with the thumb and first and second fingers, it keeps deceptively low after pitching and can accordingly be very difficult to play. The flipper is comparable to a riseball in fast-pitch softball. By putting backspin on the ball the Magnus effect
Magnus effect
results in air travelling over the top of the ball quickly and cleanly whilst air travelling under the ball is turbulent. The lift produced means that the ball drops slower and travels further than a normal delivery. The slower descent also results in the ball bouncing lower. The flipper is bowled on the opposite side to a slider, much in the same way that the top-spinner is bowled. On release, the bowler 'pinches' or clicks the thumb and forefinger, causing the ball to come out underneath the hand

Carrom Ball
The CARROM BALL (also known as the SODUKKU BALL in parts of India) is a style of spin bowling delivery used in cricket . The ball is released by flicking it between the thumb and a bent middle finger in order to impart spin. Though the delivery was first brought in use in early 1940s, it was re-introduced by Ajantha Mendis in 2008 as well as by Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin

Roundarm Bowling
In cricket , ROUNDARM BOWLING is a bowling style that was introduced in the first quarter of the 19th century and largely superseded underarm bowling by the 1830s. Using a roundarm action, the bowler has their arm extended about 90 degrees from their body at the point where they release the ball. Roundarm fell into decline after 1864 when the current style of overarm bowling was legalised, although W. G. Grace continued to use it to the end of his career. CONTENTS * 1 Origin * 2 Prohibition and eventual legalisation * 3 Legacy * 4 See also * 5 References * 6 External sources * 7 Further reading ORIGINThe spread of roundarm in the 1820s was a natural reaction to the growing predominance of batsmen over the age-old underarm style of bowling. Its adherents argued that the legalisation of roundarm was essential to restore the balance between batting and bowling. However, high-scoring matches were still comparatively rare owing to vagaries in pitch conditions

2012 Friends Life T20
The 2012 FRIENDS LIFE T20 was the third season of the Friends Life t20 , England's premier domestic Twenty20 competition. The competition ran from 12 June to 25 August 2012. The teams in the tournament remained the same as the previous season. The schedule of the tournament had been widely criticised the previous season and the ECB had decided to reduce the minimum number of days in which a county would play from 92 to 86 for 2012. This meant a change in format from 2 groups of 9, from which the top 4 would qualify to the quarter-finals, to an arrangement with 3 groups of 6. The format of the knock-out rounds (quarter-finals) remain unchanged. This reduces the number of matches in the competition from 151 to 97 in a return to the format of the 2008 and 2009 editions of the Twenty20 Cup

Cricket
CRICKET is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players each on a cricket field , at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long (20 metres) pitch with a target at each end called the wicket (a set of three wooden stumps upon which two bails sit). Each phase of play is called an innings , during which one team bats , attempting to score as many runs as possible, whilst their opponents bowl and field , attempting to minimise the number of runs scored. When each innings ends, the teams usually swap roles for the next innings (i.e. the team that previously batted will bowl/field, and vice versa). The teams each bat for one or two innings, depending on the type of match. The winning team is the one that scores the most runs, including any extras gained (except when the result is not a win/loss result). Before a match begins, the two team captains meet on the pitch for the toss (of a coin), with the winner deciding which team will bat first
