    Your bowling looks fine Faisal. Would suggest a bigger follow through, making sure you're pulling that left arm through quickly.

    Thanks Nnanden,

    Certainly...i have slowly started to work on that...along with cutting down some pounds...

    Actually now i feel the main issue is that i play a lot of tape ball cricket as well and i think its because of that that my action gets mixed up..in Tapeball its a completely different type of bowling.

    I practise with an 'incredi' ball (like a tape ball but more realistic to a cricket ball), and I get tons of spin But sometimes when I pitch it perfectly 2 inches outside off (maybe more- i spin it alot) it doesn t spin! It is so annoying but I have a totally different style with incredi balls

    Looks , feels, swings and spins like a real cricket ball at times, just alot softer(plasic), awkward bounce at times but as good to the real deal as it gets.

    EDIT: Can you see the pic? I can't see my ow pic which is wierd.

    Usually my surprise ball is the slower one...where i split the fingers on the ball so that it comes out a bit slower.....got this tip from Qaiser Ali, the Canadian National player...you will find him on cricinfo...and funny thing, in a league game i even got him out with the same ball....
    The easiest way to bowl the leg-cutter is to grip the ball normally with both fingers slightly down either side of the seam and then drop the index finger down the side of the ball. This way you should naturally impart some spin on the ball without losing pace. You don't have to drop it down too far.

    A guy who used to play first grade in Brisbane taught me this method and it worked very well. If it hits the seam it goes towards the slips (to a r-hander) and if it doesn't in generally skids on.

    Can anyone tell me if it is better to snap the wrists just before releasing the ball or keep the wrists cocked.?

    I can personally do both with pretty decent control. So I wanted to know from the experts about which is better.

    Just see which one gets you more wickets and concedes less runs. Of course, if they come out at different speeds, then look to vary it up and keep the quicker one as a stock ball.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Nowhere in the vicinity of being an expert, but I can offer my two cents.

    Keeping the wrists cocked is very good for outswing with a new ball. In that way, you let the ball roll gently through the fingers and the seam is upright. The constant wrist position does the work more than a snapping/jerking action, if that statement makes any sense. Slightly firmer wrists (and a different grip obv.) is required for new ball inswing. Please bear in mind this is predominantly swing in the air that I'm talking about.

    Snapping the wrists works for me if I intend to get some zip off the seam or greater bounce. It's usually done with a not-so-new ball, so the seam is still relatively hard but the shine is no longer there. So, in principle you are banging the ball on the seam with a powerful timely wrist action rather than letting it float out. It's unlikely that such a delivery would move in the air, but could behave like a bitch after pitching.

    For your stock ball Snap your wrist Except it shouldn't be a hard snap.

    Bowlers who snap come on to me about 2 yards quicker.
