If you are a left-handed bowler, the left side of the wicket will be your round-the-wicket and the right side will be your over-the-wicket.

   Rules

   According to the rules of cricket when a bowler comes to bowl he bowls around the wicket or over the wicket. The umpire has to tell the bowler in which spell he will bowl. And the umpire informs the batsman.

  If a right-handed bowler comes to bowl over the wicket, then he must inform to umpire right-hand- over-the-wicket. And if he wants to bowl round the wicket, he should say right-hand-round-the-wicket.

If a left-handed bowler comes to bowl over the wicket, then he must inform the umpire of left-hand- over-the-wicket. And if he wants to bowl round the wicket, he should say

   And if a bowler changes the spell without informing the umpire, then the umpire declares it as a no-ball.
