    YouTube & a mirror

    Far easier to say “copy this” than talk about feet/hip alignment etc while insisting that they do hours of boring repetition

    I'm a 40 year old who's spent 20 years watching/listening cricket but never played. I joined the local club at the start of the year but unfortunately covid-19 has kind of got in the way of any quality practice/coaching...

    ..I'm having a similar-ish issue to the one mentioned. Although bowling seam-up my arm is nice and high and I can bowl straight every time, as soon as I try to bowl spin I start reverting to a round-arm action and my head falls to one side (bowling without the ball I always do better though). Does anyone have any suggestions for things to concentrate on in the action or drills?

    One suggestion is you keep your eyes on the batsman during your delivery stride.. Maybe, that will help your arms come towards your head a bit more as well.


    And welcome to CW, btw.

    For spin bowling, try to remember you want to get up and over the ball, and you're not bowling it into the pitch, but into the air and trying to aim it so that it drops onto the pitch naturally

    Hope that helps
