In professional cricket, every bowler can bowl by discharging the ball toward the wicket. But very few use the ball to great effect that gives the team an additional advantage when they seek for wickets. The one who bowls with subtle variations of line and lengths is qualified to get wickets for the team or being economical throughout the game is also a good trick.
For a bowler who is well built with pace, one should bowl with a brisk pace coupled with a meat of swing in it and to surprise a batsman at the best scene, a deadly yorker would do the trick enough to rip the defences of the opposition. When it comes to the spinner, one need not depend on pace but to rely on a spike of revolution to put the batsman in a limbo.
As long as runs don’t get leaked for the team, the captain is happy and it is certain to put the team on the front foot and it’s not always about wickets but being economical at times which in turn forces the batsman to take the risk in playing shots only to be trapped by a bowler.
