Cricket Gyan- Delivering Leg Cutters

Leg-Cutter: Leg Cutter is one of the deceiving weapons used by fast bowlers. It’s not only difficult to face but it also gives a bowler some variety to puzzle the batsman. To deliver a leg cutter, a fast bowler cuts down on pace and the ball moves off the pitch from the batsman’s leg side to the off side. However, the movement of the ball largely depends on the release, the condition of the pitch as well as the condition of the ball.
