#36 - I’m 5ft 3inches, can I become a fast bowler?

QUESTION

I’m 5ft 3inches, can I become a fast bowler?


ANSWER

Hey,

Interesting question. Although long levers are desirable in fast bowling, they’re not everything. There are plenty of bowlers under 6ft who have bowled extremely fast. So I wouldn’t worry too much about height. Just work hard, make your action as efficient as possible and stay fit!

All the best.
