    I'm not a particularly strong chap (quite weak, tbh), but someone who generates most of the pace through the shoulder in delivery. I'm also very skinny in the shoulder area.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Sounds like strength and power are the way to go then.

    I wouldn't think shrugs would be of benefit, swap them for high pulls and do 3 sets of 4-6 reps. http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/.../HangPull.html

    Similar movement but this is much better for power.

    As for rows, start with 5 sets of 5 reps 2x a week, aiming to increase the weight every session.

    Hopefully you are doing other exercises too right?

    Are you still injured?

    Yes - Boxing, planks as well as interval spints on the bicycle (can't do them outdoors due to British weather and on a treadmill couldn't be more tedious).

    EDIT: Thanks for the help.

    No problem. NOW MAN UP AND GET OUTSIDE.

    just kidding, running is good but if you can't do it, bike is the next best and it's less hard on the joints.

    I would replace those with at least 1 'power' movement per session.This will increase the speed of your upper body and running speed. Examples are:

    • Plyometric push ups
    • Medicine ball throws
    • Olympic Lifts or variations of them
    • Jump squats


    That's a quick summary. There is plenty more if you want it.
    Here's a link to a sample strength and conditioning program for a fast bowler...
    Sample Strength & Conditioning Program for a Fast Bowler (off-season) The Fitness Doc's Blog

    Have fun with it! Don't forget to leave a feedback after you've been on it for 8 weeks....I've had some guys pack on 10lbs while lost inches...meaning they got leaner and meaner...and added yards of pace....lemme know how you get along!
