Any bowler will only increase their speed if THEY want to. Both Shafiul and Shahdat appear to have done that recently but the work I can with them is limited.

I do not have them to work with 3 times a week as I would have liked because they are either playing ODI's or playing club cricket. The training camps do not allow for the time to take any bowlers and teach them the painstaking drills they need to increase or correct faults quickly.

It takes TIME to change an action and improve things. The bowler needs to go away and do the 'homework' of skill drills to help. I have the knowledge to help them but not the time or accessibility to get to the bowlers and do it.
