Default Bad cricket bowling habit

Wasn't sure where to post this thread so if mods want to move it, please do. Ok so back on the topic. I have a bad habit of bending my ebow when I bowl. Since I also play baseball, I think this is where I got this habit. So is there any drills to help fix this problem? Also in Cricket, are you really not allowed to bend your elbow at all? I find it hard to believe that people like Shoaib Akhtar could bowl 100 MPH without bending his elbow at all. When I bend it a little, I am comfortably in the high 70's MPH.

1st no your not allowed to, if you do, then its not BOWLING any more, it would be CHUCKING, PITCHING etc etc.
2nd i dont know what can help you, but suggestion keep on practicing or be a batsman or only play the one you like more cricket or baseball

one other thing, in my club there is this dude, who plays baseball was having hard time batting, similar problem. cuz not used to it. when he bats in cricket games, he would have trouble, looks awkward when he stands to bat. but he was still a pretty good hitter. but he got over it. and he is all good now, and still a hard hitter!
