Kent Spitfires v Somerset - NatWest T20 Blast
The young pace sensation

For this bowling action, you should be a good sprinter. The young Kiwi steams in with a lot of speed and it's the key to bowl fast in his action. To try his action, you should run very fast from your starting point. Before releasing the ball, you should drag your right arm back with the left one following it. Then the left arm comes in front of your eyes, making an aim. The right arm then comes forward and down, close-calling the left thigh to return with full force and the ball is released.

You have to control your sprint before releasing the ball otherwise the energy generated from running will be wasted. In this process, all the momentum from running is transferred into your upper body to bowl fast. Grip of the fingers can be both wide and tight. Cocking of wrists is a plus point.
