In this video, you will learn how to bowl an inswinger
If bowled by a right-hander, it is a delivery that swings inside towards the body of a right handed batsman.
The two key steps are: the grip and the delivery.
Step 1. Grip the ball with the first two fingers close together on the seam, with the seam in a vertical position. The middle finger should rest firmly on the right edge of the seam and the index finger holding lightly the left edge.
The ring and little fingers should be folded onto the palm. The thumb should be on the seam underneath.
You should be able to slide a finger in between the palm and the ball.
Step 2. Angle the seam towards leg slip. Make sure that you angle the shiny half of the ball away from the batsman.
Run up to the batsman to bowl.
As you release the ball, cock your wrist and snap it to generate some extra pace.
Aim to bowl just outside the off-stump so that the ball swings towards the off or middle stump.
Practice bowling inswingers until you have good control over the swing. Enjoy your game.
