Intro Googly Leg-spinner Flipper Top-spinner Off-break Left-arm
Googly Googly
The leg-spinner's "wrong' un" - with the wrist bent right round so that the ball will be released out of the back of the hand.

Although the action of the fingers and the wrist is the same, the ball starts spinning the "wrong way" - from off to leg. A brilliant ball if delivered correctly, and can make a total fool of batsmen.
