What is leg spin?

A leg spin bowler's typical delivery veers to the left after bouncing - from the bowler's (and most cameras') point of view.

Leg spin bowling is also known as 'wrist spin' because it's the movement of the wrist which spins the ball.

Leg spin is widely regarded as the most difficult form of bowling, due to its complex technique. A good leg spinner will be lauded by cricket fans the world over, if he can prove his worth. He may also receive other benefits, such as text messages from English nurses, diuretics off family members and even hair growth endorsement opportunities.

Leg spinners often bowl a variety of different deliveries as well, in addition to their standard delivery, the leg break.
