    im a spinner, but for my size my quick ball has some speed and a bit of spin
    In one game i thought to myself
    "maybe i'll start with a quicker ball" the batsman thought i was a seam bowler
    next bowl i took the same run-up (not huge diff between my spin run-up and pace run-up)
    and got my biggest spin i ever did and bowled him

    Welcome to the system, newly made medium pacer.

    You won't get a team yet because the domestic season is over - so you won't get one until next season, which starts in August. You might be called up by CW Black when they're playing England A, though, because they're short of players. Don't take that as official. And you can sign up for a club cricket team whenever that starts (in June/July, probably)

    I would generally bowl one every 15-18 balls. I have variations of offbreaks though, as relating to how much spin I put on it. When I'm getting belted I generally bowl offbreaks exclusively (off a fast bowler's action ala Lance Klusener), as batsmen find it difficult to hit consistently in some conditions, especially when I bowl it outside offstump.

    There are other times when I just bowl a classic offbreak (Chris Gayle sort of action) and I actually get a fair bit of turn and due to my height, bounce. I haven't played any cricket at all in about 8 months ( ) but when I was playing I would try to work especially on getting drift into left-handers. It was quite successful at the time. I'm sorely out of practice now though.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    My main problem with my bowling is that i have about three different ways of bowling the ball in a body position sense.

    The main one is front on with a slightly bent arm - basically everyball becomes an outswinger - if i straighten the arm every ball just goes down leg for a wide.
    Then when that doesn't work i try side on - but it always ends up being too full tbh.

    add that to the fact that i'm never comfortable with my run up means sometimes i bowl utter tripe

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
