QUESTION FROM JAGDALE

I am a batsman and I also want to start bowling. What should I do and what should I keep in mind as a bowler?


ANSWER

Hey Jagdale,

Great question! It’s great to hear that you’re looking to start bowling.

The best advice I can give you is to listen to both of our podcasts with Tino Best. He speaks about the mental side of fast bowling perfectly and describes fast bowling as an ‘attitude’. You’ll also hear about Tino’s own personal journey as a fast bowler as well as the sacrifices he made and the training he did.

It’s a tough job and the demands are very high. But when you get it right, it’s the greatest feeling ever!

Here’s a link to both podcasts:

I hope that helps.

All the best.
