The aim of this eBook was to provide an insight into the biomechanical principles most efficient in enhancing a cricket bowler’s performance. Previous research has associated improved performance with increased ground reaction forces through the lower extremities. The significant finding from this eBook was that the integration and utilisation of leg drive and extension, force vectors and hip to shoulder separation would maximise the ground reaction forces that are transferred to the ball, through the exploitation of biomechanics. From this guide, drills have been assigned to enhance technique.
There are three main stages of the bowling action. These are back foot landing, delivery stride, and front foot landing. It is in these phases that the athlete can build and transfer the most energy into the ball. This course will look at the biomechanical principals involved in bowling and how to implement them to improve performance.
