Both pitches and weather contribute to swing bowling. So therefore they are both correct. Whats the problem?
Problem is that, you haven't yet read their posts. And if you have read and still come up with this answer, then I guess I can figure out your problem...
Opinion One: Swing is movement in the air..I.e. before the ball lands on the pitch
Opinion Two: Swing is due to Grass on the pitch...I.e. referring to movements after the ball hits the pitch.
Now as I understand the pitch isn't on the air/part of air and I have never seen grass on the air... So how they can both be right...?? Do you get the problem?? Or not yet??
The essence of swing bowling is to get the cricket ball to deviate sideways as it moves through the air towards or away from the batsman.
