CRICKET BOWLING TECHNIQUES

In Cricket, bowling is the action of throwing the ball toward the wicket guarded by a batsman.

A PLAYER WHO PERFORMS THE ABOVE ACTION IS KNOWN AS THE BOWLER. A BOWLER CAN ALSO BE A COMPETENT BATSMAN AND IN ALL PROBABILITY BE CALLED AN ALL-ROUNDER.

WHAT IS BOWLING IN CRICKET?

The act of bowling the ball towards the batsman is called a delivery or a ball. When deliveries are bowled in sets of six, it's called an over. Once a bowler has bowled an over, a teammate will bowl an over from the other end of the pitch.

THE LAWS OF CRICKET THAT APPLY TO BOWLING

1. A no ball occurs if a ball is bowled illegally. The umpire has the power to make that judgement.

2. If a ball is bowled too wide where it's beyond the reach of a batsman to be able to play at it with a proper cricket shot, the umpire will rule it a wide.

TYPES OF BOWLERS

1. Fast Bowlers - Their primary weapon is pace

2. Swing and Seam Bowlers - They make the ball deflect in its course while in the air or even when it bounces

3. Slow bowlers - They usually ain to deceive the batsmen with a variety of spins and flight.

4. A Spin Bowler - They usually deliver the ball slowly and put a spin on it causing it to turn at an angle.

CONCLUSION

It doesn't take a lot to master the skill of bowling, practice well and you're bound to get it right!
