A new video at last

Finally I've got round to filming myself bowling in the club's new nets. Some days it seems that everything works perfectly and I can get 5 out of 6 landing on a good line and length and turning nicely. Today was not one of those days...

I've still got the dodgy knee and I was using ten shiny brand new balls which absolutely refused to do anything, while the eight older balls did get a little bit of turn, especially the two Kookaburras. Anyway, here it is:

Every time I look at my action it seems more comical. There's something wrong with the delivery stride, it just seems far too laid back. It's not as if I'm not trying but I was looking at my first video and noticed I had a much, much faster arm speed. I know a spinner should find a natural pace and stick to it, but I'm not sure I have found mine just yet. Maybe once my knee's better I'll have to try a shorter, faster delivery stride and see if I can control it.

Looking at it I would say your delivery stride is too long meaning your back hip trails a long way behind your bowling shoulder. This will greatly reduce the revolutions you get on the ball.
