border=0 How to generate extra pace – Devon Malcom

Keep your wrist behind the ball. Cock the wrist back and flick it forward as you bowl to give you an extra bit of bounce and pace. It also means you present the seam better. It’s more likely to hit the seam and deviate if the seam is straight. Richard Hadlee bowled with a cocked wrist and that made the ball come on to the bat more quickly than the batsmen expected.
