The direction and degree of deviation from a straight path are dependent on the small-scale alignment of the seam and any irregularities in the pitch surface. This means that deviation caused by seam is chaotic and unpredictable. Often the deviation caused by seam is not large enough to cause a batsman significant problems with playing the ball.
