My name is Shan. I used to take a couple of strides(around 10) while bowling. My run up didn't help me much, but my final action at the crease is helping me. I decided to take the shortest run up..not actually run up. Just one step before hitting the crease for delivery. It is working wonders. I am able to get an excellent line, swing it bothways and I find batsmen struggle against me at the nets. My pace as reduced though. But I am in absolute control and rhythm.
Can the experts tell me if I should continue on this because it is really unconventional, Even a very slow spinner takes a few strides before delivery.
