Don't think I've bowled more than 20 yorkers last season, I only try to turn much when a wicket is helping, from outside the off stump flighted deliveries to drive, otherwise trying not to give much room to open them arm🙂I agree with the idea for subtle changes and then mixing with very slow flighted delivery

I used to try drastic changes in pace and it never worked. I realized itís easy to change pace just by subtlety variying your grip and bowling stride (vettori talks about narrower stride for offie and wider stride for slider).

For example, for a more flighted, ripping office, i have a narrower bowling stride, focusing on going ďup and overĒ the front foot - with the side of my finger pressing harder against the seam. Emphasis on getting finger to go up and over the seam.

For a slightly faster/skiddier ball, its the finger-print part of my finger on the ball (slightly less tension), and I just bowl using the same action as before - the different grip leads to the ball going a bit flatter and slightly quicker.

I also found that the slightly quicker ball gets less wickets than my stock ball (which is a Lyon type offie). So now I bowl the second (faster) variation more, and when I feel the batsman is trying to line me up, I throw in the first variation.

All about subtle variations now.
