Hi, this is Ash on behalf of Expert Village.
In this clip, I tell you how to bowl a bouncer. A bouncer is a little weapon in the hands
of a fast bowler. A bouncer, as the name sounds is a delivery which after the bounce comes
to the shoulder height, or to the head or even above. Now this mid air is a very good
one to break the morale of batman that is new to the bridge. Let me show you how a bowler
would actually bowl the bouncer and how it comes on the bridge. Now to roll the ball,
you would either have the index finger here, or between the two ends or here with the middle
finger right beside it and the thumb here. So this is a typical stance, or this one to
hold the ball. Now after the ball, there will be a good runner, cause this is a fast ball,
and the ball comes, the bowler bowls the ball. Now this ball would typically land up at about
half the pitch length. So this is where it would land up, and you see that this is about
ten to twelve feet from the stands, about half the pitch length. So after it comes here,
after it lands up here, this ball rises and rises to a very good height. Now as you would
see the batsman is here, close to the stands and this ball typically would be at least
a shoulder height or it’ll go above. So basically the batsman will either duck down to avoid
being hit by the ball. So this is how the ball comes like and you will see this ball
is generally at either the shoulder or above the shoulder height. This ball will even go
up much higher, going above the batsman’s head or some where in this space. Now this
area is the one that I said is fairly to tend to break batter’s morale. Let’s see how this
ball would look like in real time. That’s how it looks like.
