We answered that one on the show as it happens. Take a listen then buy the Fast Bowler's Bible ASAP!

hi sumesh

i want become cricketer. but my age is 25 and i play only in my building with only tennce ball. i never play with season ball in cricket. i little confusion about cricket. should play cricket as professional

I want to become a cricketer, am aged 27 but am fit enough to easily play for another 10 years.... I have been playing cricket from my childhood and been part of couple teams (One day and two day Teams) in the Hyderabad Cricket Association (Known as HCA Leagues) apart from leading my college & High School Cricket teams. I am an allrounder(Right Hand Bat & Right Arm Medium Pacer). I feel i miss something in life when not playing. I want a club who can sponsor me so that i can even help my family with providing them the basic necessities of a day to days life.

Good luck in your goal Shri.

Hey David,

Thanks.... Appreciate your wishes... Smiling

Hi name is Manny 26 years old i want to be a crickter i am very good basically iam an alrounder i can spin the ball as well as fast bowling and batting.
Cricket is in my blood,If India cgive me chance then i will bw very very useful towards Indian team.Its my promise ,Please give me some cricket clubs in Delhi and
some senior coaches phone nos so that i can make them satisfy that how can i play cricket?
But I never take chance in clubs or disrict cricket but i played with real leather
ball so if anybody give me chance then i will make my promise.
Yours Lovingly,
Manny

im at d age of 23 i know how to play cricket, but i never played with leather ball. i can do both batting and medium pace bowling... Im ready to do any type of hard work.. can i become a god cricketer for indian team.. i will be happy if atleast i play for ipl like leagues....

sir,im really confused and worried abt how to play cricket on a professional level.im nearly 23 and a right handed medium fast bowler with around pace of 125km/hr....im not a technical batsman but can hit the bowl a long way.Basically i have tried to increase my pace through practise but its just not increasing the way i want it....I have talked to people abt it and most of them told me to go to gym and strengthen my upper body thus resulting an increase in speed....i have never ever done gym in ma whole life and have not a good fitness....can u plz tell me what to do to become one of the fastest bowler in the world..and is my age still good to become one .thanks

Let's be realistic. If you bowl at 125kph it is unlikely you will become the fastest bowler in the world. It is possible to improve your speed if you work with a very good coach like Ian Pont and have a very good cricket-specific strength plan. However with luck, hard work and even more hard work you have a chance. It's not easy or cheap though. Have you got the time, money and motivation to do so?

hi Dave
i need your immediate help. im a leggie of 13 years i play for a 2nd grade senior cricket team as well as an under 15's team.
my problem is that i get a lot of extra bounce which is good thing but it rules out LBW and bold. As a result i can only get wickets
caught or stumped. i get more wickets in senior cricket than junior because the fielders are better (even then more than half my
chances are missed), i have to play juniors so i can play district cricket.
I think im a fairly good leggie i can bowl all the variations properly including the flipper and zooter. the problem is that the
fielders seldom catch the ball and the keeper gives away alot of byes and cant collect cleanly so i usually dont get stumpings. i
believe i can go as far play state under 15 if i had better fielders and keeper. I tried using signals to point out what variation im
going to bowl to the keeper before i bowl but that didn't work.

Your Advice Will Be Much Appreciated

TELL ME SOON..................

David,
Im a 19 year old seamer from Aus. Would like your opinion on something... Im 5 11, and bowl the ball at 120 125 kph with a reasonable amount of outswing... I want your thoughts on two things... 1, is it possible to pick my pace up around to 135, 140 klicks, and if i can get it upto that pace with a bit of outswing, would playing first class cricket be beyond me?
Also, what Ian Pont's done with Atul Sharma, is it possible to get involved in something like that
Cheers

Anyone can improve their speed with a combination of technique work and effective strength/power training. There is a limit to how much faster you can get - not many can get up to 140kph - but you can get quicker. If you do you increase your chances of playing professionally but it's more complex than saying "I bowl 135kph, I will play first-class".

I'm not sure what you mean by getting involved with something like the Pont/Sharma team-up. You mean you want to pay Ian for his advice?

Sir my age is 16 and height 6.3" weight 50kg. i m a pace bowler, inswing is natural, but having some trouble when i take lift to bowl the ball i have no control to my body as a result it decreases my pace. my runup is 19 step almost 19 meters. what should i have to do please reply soon.

the opposite action is applied to the left arm bowler.

how to improve bowling speed

Sir,
I played cricket since I could walk and achieved quite a lot of success.I played first team for my high school since I was 14 and scored fifties and hundreds. Everyone used to tell me I had a classy technique, and once Frans Cronje was at our school and picked me out as the most promising young cricketer.

When I was 17 our whole team got banned for a whole year, and then when I just got back I broke my hand and never played again.

Now I am 24 and all of a sudden I can't stop dreaming of playing again.

So is it possible that I could still play professional cricket even though I haven't played in 7 years?

I just bought a really nice bat and will get the rest of the kit soon.

I used to be an opening bat. RH.

Thanks

is 27 too old to start cricket for becoming professional cricketer?

Generally speaking yes it is much too old to make it as a professional. However, there is always a chance, but by 27 it is very slim unless you have an extraordinary circumstance.

hi david,
i'm 15 and play for my country (Singapore's) u-16 side. We are the 5th best u-16 team in Asia(after India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh). I have played against teams such as the malaysian national u-16 team and the capetown u-16 team and we beat both of them. I regularly contribute runs to my side as a batsman (average about 30 in both t20s and 40 over games). I am quite versatile, i bat anywhere from opening to no.7/8. Also, we have beaten state u-16 teams(Bangalore, Visakapatnam to name a few) in India. I play at division-2 club level regularly and this is the 2nd highest level of domestic cricket here. I can also bowl decently and regualrly put in 3-4 overs for my team at about 110kph. I am capable of getting natural swing and bounce due to my 6 ft frame and action. I am working towards being a good allrounder. I am one of the top high school cricketer's in the country and play for the best high-school team in Singapore. I have gotten numerous awards and recognition from my school. I am moving to India next year and plan to play for a club in mumbai as well as have a short stint at an academy. If i perform well for club and school there, do you think accolades such as the ones i mentioned will assist me in getting into a state-level age-group team? Will they consider my international experience even though it is for a non-test playing nation and will this aid my progress into state-leve age-group teams?

How I can improve my balling speed and batting

Bit of a broad question vinod.
To improve batting, The first thing to do is analyse where you are going wrong. Go through the ways that you have been getting out, full leg stump, short off side etc. Then After that you want to practice, practice, practice. When you know what shots you are struggling with, then you ask questions about what the key points are for that shot. You then begin with tennis ball drills, adressing the points, focus on rolling your wrists, keeping your elbow up or whatever it may be that you are not doing and practice in such a wayup to perfection. THen you can move on to throwdowns, bowling machine type practice, maybe make a small investment in a Sidearm (http://www.sidearm-cricket.com/_shop/products/ball-thrower/sidearm-club....) and ask a friend to feed you with those deliveries. Then move on to the nets, and once mastered there, you have built up the right confidence to use the shot well in a match.
If it is not just one shot, and you are just a bit of a slogger who cant connect, who has never been a great batter and wants to improve, start from the very basics, the younger you are, the easier this will be. Scrap what you have been doing and look at your grip and your stance. The how to exploit batting weaknesses guide is good so you can see if you are doing anything wrong. Use the above bractice method to make such changes
Be confident in shot selection, play positively and build a solid technique and you cant do much wrong
Once you have ironed out any flaws, and followed the above tips, then you will see a steady increase in your average, and your position in the order.

To improve bowling speed, you have to look at the process of your action, to paraphrase ian pont. The best way to do this is to get the fast bowlers bible (around 12 pounds) or the how to bowl faster, which has a little more information, particularly regarding the drop step front foot block, for around 60 pounds. The only quick tip for this is to just put a bit more effort into your bowling. I do very strongly reccomend the fast bowlers bible, it has increased my speed, and there is no reason why it should not increase yours.

Chinal,
To answer your question, yes they will take that experience into account, but at the end of the day, it is the players who perform best that become the best.

Hi David,
I am Abhishek from India. I just love playing cricket and I am very passionate about it. I have the talent,the potential, stamina, fitness level and I am very confident that I can do really good in this field. I have also played at the district level under 19. But the problem is after my 12th I had to opt either for cricket or my studies. As my family was totally against it, i had to go for my higher studies. Today I am 25 and I am working as a software engineer in an MNC. After my 12th I have not played much cricket. At this stage I want to quit my job and take cricket as my career as now I am independent and have no family pressure.You might be thinking that it would be not a wise decision and that too at this age and with so much of gap. But believe me I can prove to be a dangerous cricketer for the opponent. I am very confident about it. All I want is a guidance about how do I start at this stage so that I am spotted by the right person and get a chance to play for the Indian team. I know I need to start with domestic cricket like the Ranji trophy but how do I get selected for that even. Kindly guide me so that I can make the best out of it. At this age I don't want to go in the wrong direction and waste my time and talent. Kindly revert on my email address.

I AM 9 YEARS OLD I AM STUDING IN 4 STD IN VELLORE I WANT TO BECOME A INDIAN FINEST BOWLER FOR THAT WANT CAN I DO

Hey dude. I am 14 yrs old and an offie. That's excellent having most of variations with ur stock leggie. trying all the variations in an over is not tricky. If u do so, u have to change the fielding tactics which is not efficient. see mendis he uses his variations thoughtfully.suppose use 5 leg break than a flipper which will surely do something. Also try to improve ur variations more.

hello sir, sir my age is 15th and i want become cricketer u tell me one thing that how i become a cricketer from rajasthan cricket team sir i m swing fast bowler strike bowler so please help me for become a cricketer

You could start by listening to the podcast and reading the articles?

Its all in the action, it will not work if you are not bowling correctly, you can not just try and bowl your fastest without the correct technique.

Keep your front leg straight and make your back leg drags through.

Make sure that if you are right handed your left arm rises as high as you can.

Following though is very important, so try to make sure that you do and do it in a straight line and don't veer of left or right.

Muscle memory!!

Hope this helps.

hey, i am 17 years old and well talented cricketer. im a right handed batsman and defensively very sound. i played cricket till 11 years of age regularly and was tipped to go far in crikcet. due to some problem however i had a 5 year gap in my playing and havent been able to play consistently. i no live in england, do you think it would be possible for me to become a cricketer now? cheers

I am 15 and i want to become a cricketer. I am a fast bowler and i bat usually at number 5. Can you please tell me how to swing the bowl, I usually bowl around 120km/h but i want to get faster.

to increase your bowling speed you just need to run more fast during your run up. the faster you run the more fast you bowl.

Nonsense. Run up is about rhythm, not sheer speed. Most bowlers who try to run in fast are not hitting the crease at the right speed and lose momentum. If there is one secret it's hip/shoulder separation.

I would say a full rotation of your shoulders is essential

Yes there is no one single answer anyway, it's all factors combined.

SIR I AM NIRBHAY . IAM 13 YEARS OLD . I AM RIGHT ARM FAST BOWLERS. I CAN BOWL IN SWING VERY WELL AS WELL AS OUTSWING. IN BATTING IAM VERY GOOD HITTER . BUT MY PARENTS DIDN'T ALLOW ME TO TAKE COACHING . HOW TO BECAME A PROFESSNIONAL PLAYER

Hi my name is Rishu, I am 12 years old, i have played hard ball cricket ever since i was 9, i already get 60 overs a practice for private training on batting from a ex-pakistani cricketer who played in 2 world cups for them. I practice with him 3 times a week and then the other 3 days i practice with a ball in a sock in my garage also i sometimes walk with my grandpa for 3 miles for fitness. I am a die hard cricket fan. My coach says i have talent and i am hard working so that always determines me to do better. i play in a adults cricket league for 40 over matches or 30 over matches, my highest score in one 40 over match was 42 and i batted for 34 overs, i bat at number 3 for my team. I also play for another small "academy." They have a u19, u15 and u9 cricket team. i sometimes play in matches for u19 but not in regional tryouts, etc. However i play full time for u15 as vice captain, and i really want to be a captain and a lot of the times the coaches at the academy never notice my talent they only focus on the captain and how he does he also is 12 so i feel i need more chances they say they will pay more attention to me and will give me more chances but hey never do there is no other academy where i live so pitchvision please tell me what i should do. Also i am really wanting to become a professional cricketer and a cricket superstar my dream is to play in Ranji Trophy and play in IPL or play for a ICC qualified country that plays test cricket such as India, Australia,etc. My parents are keen on supporting me for that dream along with me being able to do good in studies too. There is one HUGE problem, I live in Florida, USA. Please give me advice on how i can fulfill my dream, I know you guys will ignore me like other inspiring people, but please my story is much different and is a unique one so please just read my comment please help me! Also i want to be able to score more runs more faster so please write an article focused on that also how can i improve my strength so i can hit the ball harder as i think i play too slow, also please write an article on how to be a better captain too. If you guys are reading this please send me an email responding to my questions ASAP as soon as you see this as i also play baseball too and if you guys feel that proffesional cricket wont work for please tell me dont hesitate to tell me dont feel like as if you guys tell me my moral will be down, thats not true tell me everything you want me to know. Sorry for this long comment/passasge but i felt i can share with PitchVision and that you guys can help me like no one else. Thank You so much. Please dont ignore please read i hope i am not wasting any of your time. I am now moving on to 7th grade please help me i want to play proffesionally as soon as possibly if i can i want to make a remark in the cricket history books. Also i wicketkeep so can you write an article on how to be a better wicketkeeper. Please tell me what to do, please dont ignore this passage please Reply to me as soon as possible. bye thank you so much.

Hi, my name is saurabh and my age is 27 years. I am a batsman and a smart spin bowler. I captained my school cricket team. I know its a little turn off to read my age but i would like to ask if there is any way i can get into first class cricket. I have taken some wrong decisions in life which is why i left my only love in life. I am dedicated enough to the game for the next 40 years. i would not mind the job of an umpire as well because i know i am good at it too. especially with lbw's. I dont mind following any route to get into professional cricket teams. please advice.

I want to bat..i lve cricket very much..who can help me at 21..

Sir, My age is 13 years. I am a die-hard fan of cricket and do anything for it. I think it's quite late to take the decision as there is a lot of competition for cricket in India. I want to become an international batsman. Though I am not so strong financially , I have a keen desire to become a cricketer. My parents keep scolding for it , as there is so much competition, its costly and I am late. I immediately need your help sir. Please give any suggestion.

Hi David,

I'm 14 and I live in Australia. I was wondering what was the best way to go up the cricketing ladder, because at the end of this season I was possibly the best player in my team and i racked up more than 250 runs this season, took 5 catches and 5 wickets wth a fairly good economy. So I would classify myself as a batting all-rounder, and back to my question how do I make it to the top David?
