Quick Reference

An injury commonly caused by spin bowling in cricket, baseball, and other ball sports. Although the skin in the hand becomes hardened with use, the forces used to impose spin on the ball can crack the skin, leaving open wounds susceptible to infection. If this happens, the skin must be allowed time to harden and heal.
