THE FLIPPER
The leg spin ball that never turns and goes straight, keeping very low. Very hard to play because the ball ‘floats’ through the air. Pitches closer to the batsman than expected (which is why many try to pull it) and then skids towards the base of the stumps. Fetches a lot of LBWs. Rahul Dravid: beware

THE TOP SPINNER
The flipper that bounces. Warne has a variety of these. Dips just before pitching, because of the heavy overspin, then bounces higher as in a tennis player’s top-spin forehand. Lunging batsmen (Sidhu/Dravid) may glove to close-in fielders, those playing cross-bat shots (Sachin/Mongia) run the risk of a top-edge.
