    Off-spinner run-up

    Hi everyone, I have a question for off-spinners. Is it better to run in a straight line or come from an angle to the bowling crease. Please share your experience. Thank you

    Keep it simple imo.

    See Saqlain (And Warne, although leg spin)

    Do whatever feels comfortable for you and allows you to bowl the best that you can.

    Having said that, the general advice bowlers get is to drive towards the target and that might be easier for you with a straighter run up. Just remember to get side on in your delivery stride (both your hips and shoulders) because that's where you will get a lot of your energy from and to really work hard on bringing your back hip through with some power because that rotation is very important for spinners.

    Being a slow left arm orthodox bowler i like to run across through the umpire and bowl around the wicket to right handers to create an awkward angle trying to pitch it outside off stump. My stock delivery is an inswinging arm ball and sometimes i get the ball to straighten. Works well for me.

    Like others said, do whatever is comfortable to you. But there’s one thing you need to consider. If you’re at an angle when you deliver the ball, you might take LBW out of the equation. The ball will be missing the stumps more often than not. The arm ball will be less effective too because of the angle.

    Quite the contrary. For me the angle helps even more with arm balls and lbws since i pitch it outside off and the ball swings in to hit batsmen in front of off or middle. If instead i take the angle out of the equation, the batsmen generally just play through the line of the ball or slog towards midwicket or cow corner. The angle helps me confuse the batsmen to decide whether they should play on off or leg
