    A good coach won't tell you to do anything. A good coach will encourage you to understand what you're doing and why it is/isn't working for you.
    yea well when cover drive man plays for India he can bowl around the wicket to Gilchrist.

    Oh and another thing, Bowling over the wicket to a right hander is very different than bowling around the wicket to a left hander, because bowling around the wicket to a leftie means you angle it in to the batsman more, and if you get it on the wrong line which is easy to do when you dont do it often, its easy runs.

    'Over' the wicket is the convention because it is the side in which the bowling arm is closest to the wicket, so consequently can release the ball from as straight as possible, have a high bowling arm and release the ball in a straight line on an off stump line.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    If you do that then you take away your biggest advantage, the angle angling across the batsman.
    And as well as that any movement in gives you a very good chance of bowling them through the gate.

    exactly, if you can bowl inswing to a left hander, you are a real chance of bowling them through the gate, ive done it many times.
