Classic bowling dismissals: Introduction

If you have watched much cricket on TV you will hear the commentators often talk about the 'classic dismissal' of a certain type of bowler.

This series aims to show you what those dismissals really are, from off spin to away swing and everything in-between.

Most importantly, we will also talk about how the classic dismissal of a first class cricketer might be slightly different to one making his way through club or school cricket. It's not always the case that the club player can slavishly copy the TV and get the same result. We will find out more during the series.

So whether you are a batsman trying to work out an opponent's plans, a bowler just taking up a new discipline or you just want a reminder of the most likely ways you can get wickets, this series is for you.
