How to bowl a Doosra?

The Doosra is the off-spinner's equivalent of the leg-spinner's googly , which spins in the opposite direction to the leg spinner's stock ball. It is possible for a left-armer (whose action mirrors that of an off-spinner) to bowl the doosra, which in this case would turn from off to leg.


Steps

  • To bowl a doosra, a normal off-spin bowler has to deliver the bowl from back of his hand.
  • A bowler need is to flip his wrist so that when he delivers the bowl his back side of the wrist faces the batsman and the side from which he is gripping the bowl will be on side screen dimension.
