Are you making the most of your potential as an off spin bowler?

Chances are, the answer is "no".
 
At least, not yet.

But when you read the rest of this article you will find out exactly how you can.

Spin bowling is a highly specialised skill and the most difficult ways to deliver the ball in consistently. It takes practice, but not just any practice. Truly successful spinners understand their game:

  • WHY things happen.
  • WHAT makes them happen.
  • HOW to make them happen.

Without knowing that you are just guessing and hoping, not understanding.

And the average coach at your club, school or even University just doesn't understand those things. They won't be able to help you.

So you are stuck and frustrated.

Stuck turning your arm over; acting as a bowling machine to disrespectful batsman.

Stuck not understanding how to master the arts of spin, bounce, flight, dip and turn. Just hoping it will all go right and not knowing what to do when goes wrong.

When you get out in the middle you feel paralysed by the lack of confidence and have no idea how to get out of it.

It's an ever decreasing circle of confidence disrupting form which disrupts confidence.

What if there was another way?

Would you be interested in a method that took the guesswork out because it has been proven thousands of times before?

Just imagine how good it would feel to get one over on the sloggers in the nets.

Instead of having to fetch another smash over midwicket from the trees you can watch as the ball seems to hang on the air above the batsman's eyes before dipping late, fizzing, turning and knocking back the off stump.

How would you like it if you stood at your mark in a vital match KNOWING you had the skills to bowl a match-winning spell instead of just hoping you might?

What would it mean when your new found weight of wickets earned you attention?

Selectors knocking?

Friends envious?

A professional contract?

That's exactly where we come in.

At Spininfo we have been playing and coaching off spin for years. We have seen many talented spinners without regular access to good coaching tips and drills. We know how frustrated they get. We know there are many more we never get to meet.
