Is it easy?
Firstly I didn't really know a quick bowler could get them (searching has proven me wrong there) and who knows I might not even have them but I was talking to one of our clubs older players and he was pretty convinced I might have them. I found something Simon Hughes published three years ago and what he went through is pretty much happening to me:
I'm also really nervous before I bowl (which is something I've never experienced before bowling). It's the type of nerves I usually get before going out to bat. I'm also not trusting my run-up at all and seem to be looking at the ground all the way to the crease pretty much.Quote:
I felt it beginning to happen to me one summer in county cricket. The new ball feels like a bar of soap in you hands, the feet are like lead and the bat looks two feet wide. You try running in but you don't really want to reach the wicket. The ball floats out of your hand like a blancmange
You might say practice more and that should help but I seem to be alright during training, my run-up is usually fine, pace is good, I don't feel nervous and the ball just flies out of my hand instead of me feeling like I'm trying to keep hold of it.
