Hi guys, just found this site, some very interesting topics and debates :-)
I was wondering if you could give me your thoughts on something, here's the situation:
Basically, my bowling action is awful, we are talking one of the worst that most people have ever seen. I bowl medium pace, used to get a lot of swing but now I seem to bowl incutters (I've been told that's because of my wrist). I bowl very front on and don't really have a jump which makes some people think I look like I'm bowling off the wrong foot. My run up stutters towards the end and my my arm apparantly comes from nowhere at the last moment. It's quite hard to explain but the point is, it's very awkward looking.
When I bowl well I bowl very well, but when something goes slightly wrong with my run up for example, it throws everything out and can be terrible. I am 22 and have been bowling all my life, with this strange action, I don't know how I got it and I don't know why it wasn't coached out of me.
I was wondering if you think it would be possible for me to rebuild my action or whether it's too late and if so, how would I go about it? I guess it's increasing the risk of injury having such an awkward action.
Thanks for your time
