QUESTION

How can I improve my yorkers?


ANSWER

Hey,

Hitting a spot on the pitch is all about understanding when to release the ball. To improve your yorkers, I’d say that you need to understand where to aim and when to release.

Some bowlers aim at the bails, some aim at the batsman’s toe and some even aim at bowling a half volley.

Get into the middle and experiment with your aim and see what gives you the best results. Don’t be too harsh on yourself, you’re not going to hit a perfect yorker 6 out of 6 times – you’re looking to identify the most efficient and reliable process for you!

I hope that helps.

All the best.
