How does a Bowl spin? What is the Science Behind it?
what is the study of swing that keeps the player speculating and even moves alliterative features? Let’s investigate it…
so what is the science of swing that keeps the batter guessing and even inspires alliterative headlines let’s take a closer look one side of the cricket ball is shiny the other side is rough and the seam is up straight
as the ball cuts through the air it bifurcates the ear at the seam on the shiny side the air flows smoothly a laminar flow and on the rough side, the air flows chaotically a turbulent flow the air glides along the shiny side and leaves the shiny surface earlier than the air on the rough surface when the air on the shiny side leaves the surface of the ball early the ball experiences a force in the opposite direction towards the rough side as a result in the ball swings towards the rough side or away from the right-handed batter.
To understand this better imagine a jet pack with two outlet nozzles if the right side nozzle is fired first which direction do you think it’ll fly? yes exactly to the left this is what we call a conventional outswing similarly with the rough side on the right once again the ball swings towards the rough side to achieve conventionally insulin.
