Hey, I've always bowled pace with a tight grip on the ball with very little space in between. However due to advice I began holding it somewhat looser and with more gap. I know this to be the proper technique for bowling quick but then I heard something interesting in this video from Shoaib.
He mentions that you should hold the ball with some gap and a little loose but then mentions that he holds it tight. So I was wondering does holding the ball tightly really reduce pace as I've been told. After all Shoaib is one of the fastest to throw down a ball from 22 yards.
