I've been looking at pictures of myself bowling and I realise that when I land, my left (front) knee collapses which is probably resulting in a loss of height as well as pace.
This picture is similar to what I've been having problems with
Is this because I'm running in too fast, or my knee is not strong enough? I'm not sure what really causes this and I don't know how to improve. I tried making a conscious effort to land with a straight leg in the nets but it throws my action and accuracy off completely and I'm still not sure whether I land correctly.
Another question I have is, are squats and lunges helpful for fast bowlers? If yes how frequently should I be doing them?
ftr I'm only 173cm so I can't afford to lose height as a fast bowler.
Any help would be appreciated.
