A ball bowled with a swerve or swing from the leg to the off side.
- ‘His punishment was an outswinger from Lee and another Gilchrist celebration.’
- ‘Hoggard is still a raw prospect, but his outswinger will always take wickets in English conditions.’
- ‘I got him, with one that nipped back, even though I was trying to bowl an outswinger.’
