"THE" MOST AMAZING BALL EVER BOWLED IN CRICKET HISTORY

Sports for students: Want to Bowl Faster? Perhaps the most common question asked by young fast bowlers is “how can I bowl faster? Everyone wants to bowl faster and in most cases everyone can bowl faster by following a few basic principles. However, the real challenge is to improve speed without sacrificing control and any current strength you have as a bowler whether it is swinging the ball, getting some extra bounce or the ability to bowl cutters. Here are some of the things that can help you bowl quicker and as with all good things these will take time to master but if you are patient and work hard on them, you will bowl quicker and at the same time stay healthy. Rhythm One I thing I have noticed as a bowler is that when I have “good rhythm” or when I have the feeling of being “in the zone”, I bowl faster without the feeling of having to try harder. Michael Kasprowicz once said to me that the quickest he bowled was when he was the most relaxed. The point I am trying to make is that trying too hard to bowl fast causes unnecessary tension in the body and restricts your movement and ability to produce force. Being relaxed, feeling comfortable and getting to the point of delivery with good momentum is crucial to being able to transfer power and speed towards the target. Slight Lean Forward Try to have a slight lean forward while running in to bowl. This helps to create a nice build up of speed to the crease and helps create a smooth, efficient jump in to the crease. Pull the Batters Collar Towards your Rib Cage We started using the coaching cue “pull the collar ” which we learnt from Ian Pont of Mavericks Cricket. Most people use the ‘toilet chain” cue which gets bowlers to pull up and down. This pull down of the front arm is not as effective as a stretch (grab the batters collar) and pull back into the ribs. The shoulders are connected and should work LATERALLY instead of VERTICALLY to be the most efficient. Driving through the Crease Having strong legs and knowing how to use them well is essential to not only bowl quicker but also to ensure that you don’t put extra pressure on your shoulder and back to generate the extra pace you are looking for. Driving through the crease from your back leg requires you to push hard off of your back leg so it comes as close to your chest as possible as you release the ball. From experience this not only helps you bowl faster but it will help you to hit the bat harder with some extra bounce. Since working on my leg drive through the crease, the batsman I have bowled to have noted that I have been hitting the bat harder. There are a few drills you can use to develop these mechanics.

Comment_19902: Everyone knew him as a legendary ATG swing bowler, but also, what a great guy! 

rizz rizwan: RESPECT !! from a Kiwi-Indian, Never was and will ever be a great bowler like Wasim in the History of Cricket !! The Era of bowling craftmenship has ended the day Wasim retired from cricket, the aura of it will never come back !!!

Shaf Hussain: To be able to twist your wrist the way Wasim demonstrated would take ALOT of skill. Impossible to teach. Legend.

rey ahmed: Really amazing video the best and simple way to understand swing watched many videos on the YouTube but his explaination was simply the best

TheDeathbatOfA7X: I watched this, practiced it a bit then applied it to saturday and took 4/17. This helped so much

MadeOf Clay: I grew up watching Wasim play. The greatest bowler ever (imo). How the heck can you make the ball change direction twice? I've never seen another bowler able to do that. He was amazing.

Rod Vadas: Do you think Mitchell Johnson learnt in that masterclass how to bring the ball back??? Nooooooo.

Mohammed Ali: Wasim u r a legend can u teach me

Prabhakar Muthukrishnan: Respect from an Indian fan. Without any doubt the greatest fast bowler ever. But I doubt whether he can teach his skills to someone else because he got it readymade from the allmighty. He could do impossible things with the ball. I doubt whether we can see another Akram. Chances are very remote.
