Learn the basics of leg-spin
Around the Academy:

Terry Jenner and Shane Warne at Lord's
Terry has mentored Shane Warne for over 15 years
Hi, I'm Terry Jenner and I'm sometimes known as the "Spin Doctor".

Leg-spin bowling is one of the greatest mysteries of cricket, taken to a new level by Australia's Shane Warne.

But with a little bit of knowhow and a lot of practice, you'll be able to get to grips with the basics.

Watch my masterclass:

Remember:

  • Use the "two up two down" finger grip around the seam

  • Cock your wrist as you are about to bowl

  • Use flight to get the ball over the batsman's eyeline

  • Invite the batsman to drive

    That's my guide to leg-spin basics, time to put the theory into practice.
