    Can this trick work for pace bowlers??

    If I get a cricket ball which weighs a lot heavier than a normal one and practice with it( bowl a bit slower than my normal pace coz it might put too much stress on the body if I bowl at full pace), will it improve my pace and fitness?? I guess it should work since most of my muscles used during pace bowling will get a good workout if I do that. and continuing with a normal cricket ball after practicing with a heavy one would definitely increase a bit of pace.

    No, your action would be all over the place. You'd completely screw over your muscle memory.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
