Going to FTP has finally making my low Cricket IQ epigeal. There it states that overcast weather may favor seam bowlers. Anyone mind explaining why is that the case? Where is the connection? Thnx.

Gopal do a search for a thread opened by Arnab where we discussed this. It has to do with cloud cover, humidity, air pressure, etc.

ON reverse swing, see article by chinaman and the discussion thread accompanying it.

Here's Arnab's reservoir thread of articles on cricket's technical issues thread. See page 2 for swing.

Hello again!

What's the maximum strike rate possible by a batsman? 600%? 6 runs out of 1 ball, or is there anything higher than that? If it's a no-ball, can the SR be infinity?

Nope, it can't be infinity. Bcoz when the SR is calculated, total runs made are divided by the number of many balls played (legitimate or non-legitimate). So if it's a SIX of a no-ball, the SR is still 600%.

what muscles or parts of your body help you bowl fast? what can i do to increase my speed?

i'm fairly well built (179cms/68 kgs; slim-semi muscular, seventeen years old). take that into account.

i think if i compared my current speed to everyone my age, i'd be in the top 70%. but i have never been speed-gunned, so i don't know details.

Well, suppose a batsman stroke the ball along the ground and ran x runs,(X being any integer.) and than got 5 overthrows. So his strike rate would be 6(x+5)%.

In the history of cricket, sometimes morethan 50 runs has been scored off one ball. Once, the batsman stroke the ball in to a near by treetop. Untill a fielder brought a shptgun and shot the ball down, the batsmen ran and collected 50+ runs. About that time, rules for lost ball was penned. So now if the ball is lost, the batsman will get 6 runs.

1. Judging a Wide
(a) If the bowler bowls a ball, not being a No ball, the umpire shall adjudge it a Wide if, according to the definition in (b) below, in his opinion the ball passes wide of the striker where he is standing and would also have passed wide of him standing in a normal guard position. (b) The ball will be considered as passing wide of the striker unless it is sufficiently within his reach for him to be able to hit it with his bat by means of a normal cricket stroke.
2. Delivery not a Wide
The umpire shall not adjudge a delivery as being a Wide
(a) if the striker, by moving,
either (i) causes the ball to pass wide of him, as defined in 1(b) above
or (ii) brings the ball sufficiently within his reach to be able to hit it with his bat by means of a normal cricket stroke.
(b) if the ball touches the striker's bat or person.


http://www.rulescricket.co.uk/law25.htm

according to this it won't be a wide ball am I right?

I'm pretty sure they still take guard, even in T20s. How can one bat if (s)he doesn't?

Most batsmen will take a leg-stump guard, i.e. have their feet planted outside the leg stump with the bat guarding it. Helps avoid lbw's. A middle-stump guard is not unheard of but very rare. An off-stump guard is foolish and suicidal.

There have been occasions when batsmen have run more than that. There was this one time that the ball was hit to the top of a mountain that was home to a lion. 80 runs later, one of the fielders had had enough and drew up the courage to climb up and get the ball back.

Unfortunately, I don't have a link to the article. I also remember reading about instances of > 100 runs in a single delivery.

Hate to rain on ATMR's parade but in T20, batsmen are known to take off-stump guard. I believe Shaun Marsh credited that to his success in IPL 1.0. Also, batters have been known to do something similar against big offies such as Murali - hence his recent tactic of going round the wicket to right-handers ...

Ammar, how did you find the Arnab thread? I suck at using our search ...

Usually, you need a strong shoulder, if you have a short run up. Some people gain speed from their run up, too. For sharp rising delivery, you need a strong wrist. Speed also depends on your bowling action. Some people (e.g. Imran khan) gain speed with a sharp jump just before the delivery. And never get fat, if you want to be a fast bowler. With your height, 68 kg is OK; but considering your age, you need to be careful so that it does not goes worse.

Another thing for fast bowlers, you need to be mentally strong and should have the killer attitude.

1. You need to have good food habit (Meat, Egg and Milk)
2. You need to have special exercise for back muscle (The muscle with backbone)

Spot on.
However, I would suggest to discard eggs from the list of good food. Meat gives you strength and Milk is very good for stamina. For a sound health, vegetables are also must, though they will not directly make you strong.
