Slider. The opposite of the Topspinner. At the time of the serve, the batsman does not see the ball’s grip as the bowler turns his hand with the back facing him. The rotation is set with the wrist and ring finger, while the ball goes further than in the case of the Topspinner, but bounces not so far and can also change trajectory, which makes this serve quite inconvenient for the batsman.

It is believed that Shane Warne invented the Slider. Still, other players successfully used it, who, however, did not distinguish it into a separate category (for example, Richie Beno).
