I wanna play cricket and I wanna become a fast bowler, can I become one?

By

I wanna play cricket and I wanna be a good fats bowler and I’m 5’2 so what should I do to become a good fast bowler?

First, you need to gain some fitness (there is NO fast bowler in the world, that is not fit)
Secondly you need to watch videos of fast bowlers, and study how they bowl and what line and length they bowl
Next is actually bowling, you can’t expect yourself to be good straight away, practice !!!, and also find a action that doesn’t put stress on your mucles
Lastly join a local cricket club, and get some match practice !!!!

(with your height, you may be able to skid the ball more, so you could be a very good bowler)

surely u can become one!

you can join a cricket academy or can get a coach!!you need to practice harder and work harder!

apart from that concentrate on your body also because fast bowlers require strong shoulders and muscles so keep a check on your diet…..LOTS OF PROTEINS AND WORKOUT!

i hope i see you exceeding 160km\hr. after sometime so/………..best of luck!

Initially ALL THE BEST.
For your height it's hard to become a deck-hitting bowler, so concentrate on skidding balls and you can generate great pace with such kind of balls.
Bowl atleast 3-5 overs per day and try all the variations.
Once again BEST OF LUCK.

If your 5'2 concentrate on line length and swing.

Also watch viedo of some shorter quickies. Malcolm Marshall is a good example.

Firstly I would like to mention that height is not a limiting factor in becoming a good fast bowler. Just look at Malcolm Marshall.

It is however very important that you are physically well conditioned. This means being strong and fit, allowing you to move fast and bowl for long periods of time. Good technique is also critical – this helps you use your body in the most mechanically efficient manner. This can make a massive difference to your bowling speed. Check out Cricket Bowling Tips.
