What do you think when you hear the word air? Surely all thoughts are about the sky. In cricket, this word also means a high kick when performed by a spin bowler. Cricketers say about this technique that the ball needs “giving it some air”.

When planning such a throw, players use either an upper or reverse rotation. Of course, this makes it difficult for batsmen to receive the ball. The air throw is considered synonymous with the word flight. These kinds of throws are available to professionals of a good level. Usually, amateurs can’t perform them properly.
