Cricket is the most famous sport in the world. It has a total of 2.5 Billion fans all over the world.
It’s a popular game in Asia. We are unknown of many words about cricket.
“Leg side” and “Off Side” are one of them. Many have a question that, What is Off Side And Leg Side In Cricket?
These two words are used in cricket sports repeatedly. So, I’m going to discuss these 2 accents.
One side of the cricket pitch. When a right-handed batsman stands on a cricket pitch, the Leg side will be situated on her left-hand side. If the batsman is left-handed, his right-hand side will be Leg side.
It’s opposite of the Leg side. The right-hand side field of a right-handed batsman is called Off Side. The left-hand side field of a Left-handed batsman is called Off Side.
How Many Cricket Shots Can Be Played In Off Side And Leg Side
When the bowler releases the delivery, the batsman goes his back foot and stand by his toe. Batsman strikes the ball square of the wicket with a low height. It’s an Off Side shot.
It’s a popular shot in new generation cricket. Players need to play in the opposite position. The player straightens their head and body over the knees and pushes the ball in reverse position with low power.
When the ball is at your height of the wrist, the batsman swipes the ball on his leg side with a bat. They played it with less power and a cross bat.
It is played as same as a hook shot. The difference is it is played when the ball is between your head and wrist. Another is it can be played in the front foot or back foot position.
Despite these; leg glance, cover drive, square drive and uppercut are good cricket shots.
