Not sure if it's just me, but of late I've been noticing an increase in the amount of talk about the technical aspect of the game. Now sometimes I try and contribute to make me feel better about myself as compared to the hordes of illiterate posters that dwell in the Youtube and Cricinfo comments section, but I'm only ~5 years into cricket and other than the most basic of basics, I'm nearly always talking out my arse or borrowing the opinions of others. I'm pretty sure a number of people must be doing this as well (eg a certain poster recently claimed Ojha is a one paced bowler), and I've seen posts in the past where people say "batsmen x was dropped because he had technical issues" without elaborating, because quite clearly they had no idea either.
So anyways, this is a thread for me to ask simple, basic questions so I can actually learn about the game.
First up, ****s be saying that hilf's (iirc) action was very 'low' back in 1867 and since then he's corrected it. Because I didn't want to sound like a noob, I didn't ask and try to find out what that means and why it's a bad thing, but I'm pretty much clueless.
Another thing is driving your hips through, wrt to fast bowling. Can someone explain it to me? NFI what it means.
Sorry if this is all assumed knowledge to most of you guys but I never engaged in cricket talk of a technical nature before joining this forum, and when I did play cricket it was just the basics.
