Wrist Spin Bowling (part Five)

Pretty sure landing a ball on the match strip from any direction is going to be frowned upon.

Can you not just bowl the ball down a neighbouring strip?

LOL the issue is i'm on the slower side of the my Spin bowling, even though I vary my pace, flight and dip he has enough time to pick and play.

Someone wanna be dick coach moron, made me sprint at full speed while I wasn't finished stretching, I pulled my hipflexor and the doc says I should even think about jogging for another 6 weeks. Man I was doing well this winter in nets, I got to bowl to very talented players and got the best out of most of them(unless I was bowling short or too full unintentionally). This injury put me off, I was in zone, getting praise and guys actually stayed back after practice to face me. From the age of 14 to about 23 I sucked big time, spent most of my years as a "specialist fielder", you know bat #11 and bowl 2-3 overs every 5-6 games. FInally I started picking up my groove 2 years ago. Damn, it is like always something bad happening when things are going well.
While you wait for the injury to heal I suggest getting a collection of balls, twenty plus, then bowl them to an empty net from a standing start. And repeat. And repeat. I would bet that you will find this valuable practice and likely discover new things. You can bowl to batsmen too from a standing start from a reduced distance. This is my favourite way of practising.


Thanks for the suggestion guys, I'll start doing all of that and RIP my grammar and spelling. I was so out of it that I didn't know what the heck I was typing lol. This injury reminds me of Mike Tyson's famous quote "Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth". In my head, I was getting a little cocky with my imagination, I was planning my progress and development. Definitely humbled me.
