Making It Talk: Hannon-Dalby’s guide to moving it sideways
- The taller the better – aim to stay nice and tall in your action and keep your bowling arm straight.
- Keep it steady – don’t try to bowl too fast as this tends to make you lose the ability to swing the ball.
- Wristy business – wrist position is key when trying to swing the ball. Make sure you keep your wrist in a good, upright position throughout your action.
- Get your run-up right – keep your run-up simple and attack the crease. Tuck your elbows into your body and focus on running towards a target.
- Move it off the pitch – even on days when there’s no movement in the air, it’s important to get your release spot on. If you present the ball angling towards the slips, as for an awayswinger, the ball will come out in a way that gives it the best chance of hitting the seam when it lands.
