Hitting the seam with pace, ball will bounce a lot yeah. But then it will not spin. If it swings then it has to be back spin. When it is back spin, it does not turn. And when it does not hit the seam (which is the most likely case) it will slide off the pitch. Simply spin and swing, does not occur together.
