I am hoping some of the forum's spin bowlers will contribute to this thread to discuss what sort of tactics they find difficult to bowl against. But basically I just wanted a discussion on how people bat against spin personally.
I grew up in NZ where there were very few school boy spinners of any note. I grew up just waiting for them to bowl a bad ball and played a regular shot against it.
When I went to Canada I played against a vast number of sub continental spinners who were damn good. There just were no bad balls. So I developed my current style which is to go on the back foot early even against good length deliveries. And then use my feet to come down the pitch and drive the ball a bit later. As soon as they start bowling the ball shorter I start going back again. These days in my grade the spin bowlers are so slow through the air that I can wait until after they have released it to see the flight and then use my feet.
This is how I do it. But I find that you need to be willing to hit the ball over the top a few times to push the fielders back to the ropes to open up the singles and this is my weakness as I am not a big hitter.
How do you bat against spin and as mentioned what do the spin bowlers themselves have to say?
