    Cool stuff. If they are really good, and you want to do well against them, than you just have to practice a lot. If you want to get really into it, you can video tape yourself bowling and analyze it (or post it here so others can help). Where I play, we sometimes bring video cameras for just that sort of thing.

    In terms of 'hitting the ball harder', many times I find that people don't really put their back into it. You have to kind of arch back in the air and then propel yourself forward with full momentum, if that makes sense.

    Hitting it harder? Technique and back I'd say. You gotta utilise the muscles in your back to give you extra stength. Try bench-pressing.

    Well if your just going for the slog the best advice I can give you is to rotate your hips to gain extra power in your swing. Pivoting on your back foot helps in this regard.

    Damn Voltman, beat me to it!!!!

    Re the bouncer thing. I have a mate who coaches a first grade side in Sydney. One of his theories is that, because good batsmen can often tell if a ball is going to be short because of the subtle (to the outsdier) changes in a bowler's action and the position of the dropping of the bowler's head, he tried to get his quicks to practice bowling bouncers without lowering their heads, to get a greater element of suprise. Not sure if it worked though, and as someone who wouldn't get a bowl in a Chinese restaurant, I'm probably not the one to ask. As a batter though, definitely a bouncer at eye level or just above is the hardest to control, preferably from the bowler's point of view going over off middle/ middle-off stump.

    Try to have the same follow-through with every delivery. Makes it next to impossible for batsmen to tell the difference.

    Agreed.

    The solution is gene-splicing, preferably with someone of West Indian origin.

    I can't bowl one, at all. I'm a spinner by trade (don't kill me Goughy) but even when I steam in and bang it in really short, it just gets to a certain height before going back on the "down." I'm a short fella and I just can't generate the pace or bounce from my height and action. So it's not necessarily a technical thing.
