• noun a variety of wrist-spin in which the direction of the spin imparted to the ball is the same as the direction in which the ball is travelling, causing it to ‘hurry’ off the wicket after pitching, with an apparent increase in pace but with little or no deviation
    Citation ‘The ball comes off the wickets faster in comparison to its pace through the air … the reason being that it is possible to impart more top spin with a low delivery than with a high one’ (Warner 1934)
