After England batsman Jos Buttler gave Indian skipper MS Dhoni a few field-placing headaches in Wednesday's warm-up game with the shot patented by Sri Lankan Tillakaratne Dilshan in 2009, Rob Key stepped into the World T20 Zone to give a demonstration on how it's done.
Click on the video to watch Kent skipper Key talk you through the essential skills you need to deposit the ball over the wicketkeeper's head or fine leg, for four or six, regardless of whether the delivery is on the stumps or outside off-peg.
It's not just as simple as reversing your grip, but your movement and balance have to be spot on - and the field has to be right - if you are to take on the challenge.
Former Ireland all-rounder Kyle McCallan also explains what steps a bowler can carry out to combat a batsman determined to take on the shot and ensure that the Yorker or low full toss remains a potent weapon.
