Do you have any tips on fast bowling? (Daniel)
Not everyone is able to bowl fast. However, one of the key areas for any fast bowler is the run-up. Bowlers need to start slowly with short steps that gradually increase in length as you run faster and get nearer the stumps. Always make sure your head is pointing forward, arms are pumping close to your sides and finally your eyes are focused on where you want to pitch the ball.
Disclaimer – big fan of Jimmy’s, and support him entirely. But he does need to start looking at the pitch when bowling!
