(Video) The glory is in the guile of Alex Hartley

The hostile nature of slam-bang cricket can force spinners into a vicious cycle of experimentation. But Alex Hartley has been around for long to know better. So she sticks to her guns, operating at a slower trajectory and imparting copious amounts of revs on the ball to flummox batters who take guard loaded with ambition and attitude.

Naomi Dattani tried charging at her but there was no pace on offer at all, and all she could do was chip a dolly back to Hartley in her follow-through.
