Reckon you've got an awkward action to face as a batsman, just a big blur and the ball appears rather quickly; would have hit a lot of blokes.
That actually brings me to one thing I didn't include on the list that is probably the biggest obstacle to me getting back to bowling fast. I used to love hitting batsmen. Not for any sadistic pleasure but fast bowling hurt so much that I needed to be angry and the batsmen bore the brunt. However, now I'm not angry in the slightest and I'm concerned that the pain is no longer motivational. It is now just pain. My younger self wouldn't believe I'd ever say this but I no longer really want to hit anyone and the idea of hospitalizing someone sickens me. Perhaps it is due to my own injury experience or maybe I am just getting soft
