    Is this a chuck?

    Well, since Rich did, i thought i mgiht aswell give it a shot.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEgYQDIw6TI

    This is close to but not exactly what i look like in a match, the ground was very soft(It was the end of September) so i didn't run in of attack the crease as much as i try to normaly.

    I get accused of chucking by pretty much everyone, so is my action legal? I can't feel my arm bending at all in delivery, but that's probably cause i'm so used to it.

    Can't tell from the video, but:

    1) you need to jump
    2) you need to bend your back
    3) your feet are in a weird position
    4) you need to run a bit faster
    5) your toes should be pointing straight, not towards the slips
    6) your follow through needs a bit of work
    7) when running in, show some purpose, your arms seem to flail a bit

    Also,

    8) You seemed to slow down a lot before launching into your final step, which you should avoid. You're killing part of the momentum.

    But you should wait for Goughy to come on and give you some better advice .

    In all honesty, from what i could tell in the video, that was not a chuck....but there were a few faults with ur action...i.e. ways in which u could improve ur bowling. SS sums a few quite well there!

    Answer to the original question. I wouldnt call it a no-ball in a game, though there is a small but noticable bend (see below). Ive played with guys at a high level with far worse 'chucking' actions.



    The business end of the action looks ok. But any business needs investment and you are pinching the pennys with the run-up, leap and coil.

    Ill post more in a bit when I have more time.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    Doesn't Pathan tend to go in at 7?
