The seam angle to its axis produces an aerofoil effect as the ball travels through the air, pushing it toward the leg. This is enhanced by the different air pressure caused by the movement of air over sensitive and slippery surfaces, which in turn move the ball to the side of the leg.

The fastest leg spinners will sometimes be up to 100 km / h. leg spinners usually use a flight differential by twisting the ball in the air, allowing for any aerodynamic effects of the ball spinning causing the ball to dip and turn before jumping and spinning  (usually called ‘turning').

While difficult to accurately bowled, a good leg-spin bolling is considered one of the most threatening types for batting because flying and sharp turns make the ball movement much more difficult to read and the batsman (though he or she the right-hand batsman) is more dangerous than the chance to penetrate the spins produced by an off-spinner.

This is in contrast to the leg-spin bowling where the ball moves the offside from the leg side to the other and is driven by a very different action.

The bowler that overlaps with the same action as the left-hand off-spinner is known as the orthodox bowler, While the other spinner has the same action as the off-spinner, the ball itself spins the other side.
