    Something I've realised is there is not much mention of tips for spin bowling on this thread.

    I use at least 2 spinners in each format but I'm never sure if I'm doing well or could be doing even better.
    Historically I have tended to aim for middle stump.

    Basic questions to start with

    1. when bowling a leg spinner against a RHB should I aim for leg stump? ... Or middle ?

    2. off spinner to a RHB - off stump or middle?

    3.SLA to a RHB to follow the same approach to the leg spinner ?
    (Albeit with the SLA would bowl around the wicket)

    4. Bowling to LHB .... Which variations have ppl used?
    Simply the off stump for the RHB becomes the leg stump for the LHB switches sides when bowling ?

    5. Does anyone use a different tactic in terms of ball placement for the shorter formats of the game?
    Good question DVDDD, I have often wondered about spinners, I always use them the same as seamers in 1st class games with limited success, ie middle and off and aggression level according to batmans score, but the AI murders me with his spinners(even average ones on none turning pitches) and I wonder if I am doing something wrong.
    I do mix it up a bit in limited over games varying line and length.

        In T20, I bowl at 3 aggression outside off stump to the most defensive field possible.

          Would be interested in hearing peoples bowling tactics in OD games. Just failed to defend 357 against Pakistan and anything i tinkered with (length/line or fields) just seemed hopeless.

            Try bowling normal length outside offstump, unless the batsman has an offside preference. In that case bowl at middle. 3 bars aggression throughout at either a 2 field or 1 field.
