P.E - Cricket - Overarm Bowling


In today’s session you will be learning how to perform an overarm cricket bowl. The techniques to do this are as follows:


1. hold the ball with 2 fingers on top and your thumb at the bottom;

2. hold the ball at your chin,

3. stand sideways to the batter and lean back

4. pull your non-bowling arm up, and make a figure of 6 with your bowling arm, keeping it straight; release
the ball at 1 o’clock, brushing your ear with your arm;

5. follow through, finishing with your bowling arm pointing at the batter.


You can also view these techniques on the attachment and also on the video below. 


Practice these technique by bowling at a target. To start with try to aim and hit the target before moving onto bowling the ball so that it bounces just in front of the batter. You can do this with a partner by aiming just before their feet so that the ball bounces up for them to catch it.
