Depends on when the come at you, but as an offie if they come early I just look to drag my length back a bit so they can't get to it. Pretty hard to do anything when they come late though, that's just well played.

depends on what you bowl. outswing? inswing? both? cutters? may be worth developing a slower ball (even if you think you're already slow).

As an Off spinner personally I prefer to push it wider outside the off stump and shorter most people don't advance down and across to the off side against an off spinner they usually prefer to stay inside the line.

Leg side wide if keeper is up, most on rushing batsmen can't get it.

Been doing it for years and it works

My first 1st XI wicket was a stumping off someone who charged too early.

They were coming and trying to give themself room, I bowled it down the off so they couldn't reach it (not a wide as they'd walked almost off the strip) and Teflon behind the stumps did the rest.

I go one of two ways, either the above trying to get a stumping, or try to break the batsman's toes, it's difficult to slog a Yorker length delivery  :)

If anyone playing Hampshire League can get the helicopter out then fair play to them, not seen it yet though...

When I bowl and someone advances down the track I would do exactly the same as you, bowl a yorker as it cramps them up.... The only other thing would be to maybe bowl wider or slower to make them play too early, when I bowl slower I go for an off cutter as you can also get the ball to come in a bit

balling shorter and wider is the key for batsmen charging in....most probably the batsman will try to hit the ball on on/off side but the ball will be sliced up for a lollypop catch....I hope your keeper wont mind a lollypop catch:)

Release the ball little late, but not too late than it before too sho and don't give him any room
