Bowling - Pace bowling

Watch the video below for key points for pace bowling




- Try to deliver the ball with your bowling arm as high as possible (as close to vertical as you can)


- Power through your delivery stride and follow right through down the wicket towards the target


- Try to make your run up economical; it should increase in power as you near the point of delivery


- Try to 'channel' your run up, jump, delivery stride and follow through so that all your momentum goes in a straight line towards the batter. This should help make your bowling more accurate and maximise pace
