Swing the ball

One of the great arts of fast bowling is to swing the ball. Often a mystery to the young fast bowler, this is a skill that is rarely mastered but when it is, look out.

 

To get the ball to swing the presentation of the ball as it leaves the hand is critical, and there are certain biomechanical factors in a bowling action that can help.  Understanding how swing works, what the research says about the aerodynamics of conventional, reverse and contrast swing and how to execute each is critical for the modern high performance fast bowler.

 

See what NASA and many aeronautical engineering facilities around the world have discovered about cricket ball swing and how it relates to the biomechanics of your bowling action. We link these factors for you in our "Swing The Ball" analysis service.
