If you have slips next to the wicket keeper, all you need to do is point the seam to the closest to the keeper and you will get a late swing, if you point it to the furtherest away slip you will get an early swing

Normal swing occurs mostly when the ball is new. As it wears more, it is more difficult to extract a large amount of swing. When the ball becomes very old it begins to swing towards the shine.

What is a page ball swing ball and yorker ball?

A yorker ball hits the cricket pitch around the batsman's feet. When a batsman assumes a normal stance this generally means that the cricket ball bounces on the cricket pitch on or near the batsman's popping crease. A batsman who advances down the wicket to strike the ball (typically to slower or spin bowlers) may by so advancing cause the ball to pitch (or land) at or around their feet and may thus cause themselves to be "yorked".

Why cricket ball swings in air?

It is because of the air friction. To make a ball swing one side is shined up and made smooth while the other side is left to be scuffed by the pitch and what not. When the ball travells through the air the shined side goes faster as there is less air resistance this causes the ball to swing to a side.

What is a reverse swing ball in cricket?

Reverse swing in an exact opposite of conventional cricket ball swing. It normally occurs when the ball gets a little old. Depending on weather conditions, pitch nature and environment around, the ball normally starts getting old after 20 to 25 overs. In Australia and South Africa, the ball normally starts reverse swinging around 40 to 45 overs. While the ball starts getting old, players on the ground (especially bowlers) try desperately to keep the shine on one side of the ball while the other side of the ball keeps getting rougher. Once there is a significant difference of shine and roughness on both sides of the ball, the ball starts swinging towards the shiny side. This is called reverse swing, however, it is not natural and the bowlers have to really work hard to deliver reverse swing. When the ball becomes very old - around 40 or more overs old - it begins to swing towards the shine. This is known as reverse swing- which means a natural outswinger will become an inswinger and conversely, an inswinger into an outswinger.
