that doesnt quite make sense, if you take your mark and runup back to a certain point then even if your foot lands at an angle it would all be behind the line, am i right?

not making sense here!  take your runup to a point at which when you run in and your foot lands a part of it is behind the popping crease.  i dont see what an angle has to do with anything

don't worry about it, thinking about it is the worst thing, just focus on hitting the line HARD and focusing all your momentum towards the batsman.
This helps with lots of under 13's anyway ;)

Don't know if you have got the massive Bob Woolmer how to play cricket book but full of useful tips that might help - also found these on youtube so might be of use? Haven't watched them so don't know if any use but searched on no balls and these came up so might be of use.

Sounds as though you need to rectify the problem of landing with your foot of a 45 degree angle when its hits the line if im understanding it correctly. Best technique is to have your landing foot pointing towards the stumps to avoid stress and strain upon the knees and ankles.

Maybe worth trying to place two sets of cones parallel to each other facing down the pitch on the ground so that you are forced to land with your toe pointing straight, by forming a repetition you will learn to correct the issue and by having a physical restrain from allowing you to land at 45 degress should help force it back on line.

Just my thoughts

Just keep practising and practising and practising with the cones there as Tom said, it may feel weird but you have got to build up muscle memory of doing it like that. For a while after you may still have to think "land your foot straight land your foot straight" but if you keep going it should become second nature to you.

Loving the pic Knick Knack....mental rehearsal and physical repetition will lead to it eventually becoming a natural action as it wont be doing your joints much good landing as you are currently.

This Ian Pont book the Fast Bowler's Bible might be useful too?
