    Thanks for your time guys.. Really useful advice

    Please also tell me how to ball inswingers(for that matter any swing would help) by snapping the wrist.. i mean, do we need to turn the seam towards leg slip(first slip for outswing) and then snap the wrist on release or we should tilt the hand to the LEFT and then snap the wrist on release ?
    Ur advice and help would be appreciated.

    My previous post does differentiate between swing in the air (letting it roll out gently) and getting movement and bounce off the track (snapping the wrists).

    For more detailed info on grips and stuff, check out these links - Cricket Articles. Enjoy, kanna!

    These are a few low quality videos of my bowling from last year - first season. Any thoughts for improvement?

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Thanks Riggins
    Yeah I wasn't bowling over my front leg and was very tentative through the crease. Bowling speed is faster now. With my normal grip the seam comes out upright. The 45 degree top spinning leg break is my stock ball on most pitches, (in the second video the second ball was a perfect 45 degree leg break) then of course the 75 degree top spinning delivery is a handy delivery to get some nice turn and a little bit of dip as well, and the 90 degree leg break (Usually a bit slower to get lots of grip) The rest of my deliveries are all bowled with a scrambled seam to make them more difficult to pick (45 degree OBS, top spinner, googly)
    I do get very nice drift these days, if only I could get out to the nets alone and shoot a few videos! My drift usually is enough to make most batsmen play for zero turn which results in a very weird, miss timed shot. It happens countless times against right handed batsman with the first ball, they see the drift, and not knowing that I'm a chinaman they play to the right of the ball from their view (as if it's an outswinger) trying to play a cover drive, but end up hitting the ball towards mid wicket. Very ugly, but nice to see if your a bowler

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. I am 21 years old living in Canada and aspiring to be a fast bowler. Even though I haven't clocked my bowling speed before, I know I'm not bowling at a speed of more than 110km/hour. I have been practicing on remodelling my bowling action for a month now and have made some strides as I had a real consistent chucking problem before. This summer will be my first taste of competitive cricket as I have never played cricket competitively before.

    My question is very simple, how do I increase my pace? Is it too late for me to do so as I am 21 or is there still hope? Also it would be great if you let me know of some fitness and workout routines I can do to make myself stronger for fast bowling and just cricket itself in general.

    Second, if you guys can nitpick and analyze my run-up and bowling action in the following video of me bowling, that would be great.

    Hmmm....i don't know how to use words to describe your action to highlight what I am concerned about. I guess you are using a load up and then release style of bowling, that is the best I can do to describe it. Watch some Youtube of Stuart Broad. I think he has a good basic action that someone can aspire to. See if you can mimic his action for a while Even if you have to bowl slower at first. Don't go all out for speed right away.

    Movement and control are equally as important as speed and control will come with a good repeatable action.

    Thanks for the clip.

    I've watched a few videos of right arm pace bowlers in the last few days and the one thing I've seen about them is that when they are just about to JUMP, they jump using their left leg, the first leg that lands back down is the right and the left leg comes down after that extended with the foot almost touching the crease line. I've noticed (I'm right arm as well) that I jump with my right and also land on it while my left leg remains completely useless, well it actually kinda hinders my movement too to be honest. I feel that in my run up, I instinctively want to jump using my right leg instead of left, is this a big problem and how can I fix this??

    Just try to practice the jump at first. Just run up and jump and don't worry about actually doing anything with your arms until you master the jump.

    Hello Folks,
    I stumbled upon this awesome thread in search for any corrective analysis. Is this still on?
    I am 31 year old and people have told me, from my younger days that I am quick, not the fastest i have seen but decent pace, i reckon. Now as I grow older, some have suggested to slow down a bit or maybe bowl two steps. I really do not want to do any of that. My run up of 18 steps feel very comfortable to me and so does the pace, if anything i can add some pace. Besides some strength issues, which i will be working off season (our season just ended).
    The reason i am here is because in the last few years i have noticed my deliveries drifting down the leg a bit too much and my follow through getting messy. This year was particularly bad as i kept hurling down the leg towards the end of the season. It would be really great if i can get some analysis on my bowling action and some tips to get more control. I am planning to do some target practice but any more suggestions, thoughts are highly welcome.

    There are some really good posters here who can give you some good advice, but till they come around I'll chip in what I can.

    Your delivery arm is falling to the left. You could be releasing the ball with the arm closer to your ear. What you are doing now is running in, loading up, and then falling way at the point of delivery. This seems to be throwing off your followthrough too. You're probably generating most of your pace through your shoulder this way as well - do you feel your arm hurting?

    Maybe as you deliver, focus on trying to be more upright, and having your bowling arm come down closer to your head. Be less round-arm. Might help the accuracy.

    I quite like your action but I have my suspicions about your problems though I cannot tell 100% given the angle.

    The good thing is it just one issue, the tough thing is fixing it.

    Quite simply you are closing your lower body off with your foot placement which means you have to come all around your front leg. This leads to the strange skip you have in your follow through. The lack of accuracy is a symptom. You are like a golfer who has his feet lined up away from the pin and your upper body is attempting to compensate.

    Given you action, as your feet land, your left foot should stay to the left of your right foot. From the below, it looks like your left foot fractionionally crosses the line of the right foot which is pushing your natural line to leg and your body is working overtime to compensate.

    Hope that helps. Otherwise it looks good.

    Thank you for an excellent analysis. I knew i was asking questions at the right place
    You are right, in that fixing it might be a tough thing but i am going to have to work it out. The improper footwork now explains so much, with regards to bad followup, accuracy and lower back pain. Any more suggestions are highly welcome and I am going to incorporate this in my off season training.
    On a side note, how much would the posters here recommend the Fast Bowler's Bible by Ian Pont or anything better. So long as the season starts and regular nets i fancy reading something wont hurt.
    Thanks

    Thanks for your input. My arms do not hurt but i do get the point from your analysis.Going a bit round arm may be adding to the inaccuracy combined with the lower body misplacement Goughy pointed out. I am going to focus more on lower body alignment for now and take one step at a time.
    Thanks again for your input.
