A delivery or ball in cricket is a single action of bowling a cricket ball toward the batsman. During play of the game, a member of the team is designated as the bowler. Six legal balls in a row constitutes an over, after which a different member of the side takes over the role of bowler for the next over. The bowler delivers the ball from his or her end of the pitch toward the batsman standing at the wicket at the other end of the pitch. Bowlers can be either left-handed or right-handed and this approach to their delivery, in addition to their decision of bowling around the wicket or over the wicket, is knowledge of which the umpire and the batsman are to be made aware. Deliveries can be made by fast bowlers or by spin bowlers, fast bowlers tend to make the ball either move off the pitch or move through the air, while spinners make the ball turn either toward a right-handed batsman or away from him. The ball can bounce at different distances from the batsman, this is called the length of the delivery and it can range from a bouncer to a yorker.
There are many different types of delivery that a bowler can bowl, throughout an over, the bowler will choose a sequence of deliveries designed to attack the batsmans concentration and technique, in an effort to get him out. The bowler varies the amount of loop and pace imparted to various deliveries to try to cause the batsman to misjudge, as the crease has a width, the bowler can change the angle from which he delivers to the batsman in an attempt to induce a misjudgement. Usually, the bowler decides what type of delivery to bowl next, the team captain will offer advice or even issue a direct order regarding what deliveries to bowl, based on his observations of the batsman and the strategic state of the game. Another player who offers advice to the bowler is the wicket-keeper, since he has a unique view of the batsman. Another piece of information important for the bowlers to consider prior to their deliveries is the state of pitch, the pitch is a natural ground and its state is subjected to variation over the course of the cricket, some of which are multi-day events such as test matches.
Side by side, Richardson alludes to the research undertaken by Dr. Sean Müller in Australia which was funded by Cricket Australias Centre of Excellence. The results of the research demonstrated the importance of anticipation of the delivery for batsmen in cricket and this foresight that batsmen use while on the crease is referred to as advance information by Richardson. Moreover, Müllers research outlined that the presence of this information was not as evident among the lesser skilled batsmen in comparison to the experienced ones. On 1 February 1981, when Australia was playing New Zealand in a One Day International cricket match, after the game, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Rob Muldoon, described it as the most disgusting incident I can recall in the history of cricket. The 2000 Code of the Laws of Cricket declares that a delivery is illegal unless otherwise agreed before the match. A recently retired cricketer who was embroiled in controversy and under scrutiny from critics over his method of executing deliveries was the Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan
