Reverse swing is when the ball swings towards the shine
correct? I've noticed that commentators use the term reverse
swing to describe any sort of movement in the air towards
the end of an innings.. Why?? Apparently no bowler can
swing the old ball conventionally any more (no explanation
as to why this art has been lost almost overnight!)
Just an observation..
