Bowling Fast(er)
« on: June 14, 2010, 05:16:55 PM »

I know there are probably variosu topics on this and its a typical thing for young cricketers to ask but i need advice on bowling faster.

I know i'm not going to be able to bowl at the speed of light, and i'm not expecting to, just need to boost by speed by a few miles an hour to help me take more wickets.

I do a bit with the ball, however the swing i get is usually from the hand and so is easy to play at my speed, by boosting my pace a bit i can combine this with my movement to give the batsman more trouble...

Whats tips can people give to increase my speed a bit, a good description and tips for run ups, delivery stride and follow through would be great with just a few top tips on things club cricketers dont usually do that could help if there are any!!

Aswell as maybe a few exercises i could do (weights etc) that could help improve my pace.

Thanks in advance :)

I would suggest the simplest thing would be to book an hour session with one of the Gloucester coaches as you really need to run through exercises under supervision.
