Field placings for spinners
This article is part of "The complete guide to cricket field settings" series.
A while back I gave you some tips on spin bowling tactics for club cricket (although a lot of it works just as well at higher levels too).
Now it's some for a few suggested fields. These are subject to change depending on the batsman, weather, style of the bowler, position on the crease, amount of turn and the local conditions, but hopefully you can get an idea to build from. They all assume the bowler is bowling at off stump apart from the 2nd Slow Left Arm field that assumes the bowler is aim on or outside leg stump as a defensive tactic.
All the fields are built on the basic principles I talked about previously and can be adapted to attack with more close fielders or defence with more deep fielders. As usual, if you are a spinner or a captain and have any changes or suggestions to these diagrams then leave a comment below.
