What is the best way to do a slower ball ? Back of the hand, Spread fingers or slide your fingers down the side of the ball? Or is there any other ways to do it?

I think the best way is to roll your fingers down the side of the ball. Its just like bowling an off cutter.

im not a pace bowler, but we had an overseas player at our club last season who had a deadly slower ball, he said he bowled so that it was the same as an offspinner would, by rolling his hand over the right of the ball, same as an off-cutter really

i use the back of the hand you have to practice quite alot though otherwise it could be a half tracker and go for boundaries but when it works its awesome and when u get a player out u feel good about it
