How to bowl

June 13, 2010 - How to

The real bowling action depends what kind of bowling you want to do, fast bowling or spin bowling, but the general bowling action stays the same. You have to run up to the bowling crease, one foot crossing it and the other staying behind it. Until this moment will the bowler have the ball next to his face, which will look down the pitch. He will then bring the ball down to his legs until his arm is straightened. After that he will bring his arm over the shoulder but keeping it straight all the time. During the time he brings the arm over his shoulder he will make a powerful step or jump and he then will release the ball in front of him so it will go down the wicket. During the release he will put his whole body weight in a down movement, so the ball gets more speed.
