Learn Warne's five spin deliveries
Around the Academy:

Shane Warne bowling in practice for Australia
Warne's sliders has had England's batsman in a spin
Hi, I'm Terry Jenner and I'm sometimes known as the "Spin Doctor".

One of the reasons Shane Warne has so much success against English batsman is because of the variations he bowls.

Watch my masterclass:

Leg-spinners have five different balls in their armoury:

  • Leg-spinner
  • Top-spinner
  • Googly
  • Slider
  • Flipper

    Each delivery requires a slight change in wrist position when the ball is released.

    Although they are not easy to bowl, these variations are by no means impossible if you practise all the time.

    Good luck!
