Leg-side field
Around the Academy:

A leg-side field
Bowling to a leg-side field is usually seen as a defensive move.

But it can be used to stop the flow of runs, particularly against a batsman who's especially strong through the off-side.

Using a deep square leg could mean the fielding side will try and tempt the batsman with short-pitched bowling that could be pulled or hooked in the air.
