My use of the flick is confusing. I meant the flick you can do to go from normal leg break to let’s say orthodox back spin. So by flick I mean rotating the palm direction from conventional leg spin to something of a orthodox back spin. So if you flick hard enough, you get orthodox back spin, while doing it slightly will get you somewhere in between.
(So there are two flicks, one for spin, other for changing palm direction, I hope it make sense.)
I guess calling it slider here doesn’t make sense much.
But in artificial pitch, not having enough overspin means sliding most of the time, so I am getting used to the idea of calling it the slider. I guess that would not be the case in real turf.
