Another Video of bowling in match

October 14, 2012, was the last match of the 2012 season.  We had just known that our team had secured second place in the IInd Div. and hence got promoted to the I Div., again.  This particular match was of academic interest as the opponent's fate was also decided.  

Since I posted the previous video which was taken about 40 days prior to this one, I had wanted to see how it feels with a straighter run up instead of the slightly angular one.  I had felt that by doing so, the arm would be perpendicular to the ground.  I wanted to achieve this. It had gone inside the perpendicular because the body bent at the torso with the angular run. I think I achieved it though not perfectly visible from the angle these few clips were taken [by 12th man Shashank].  

I had also now changed the camera setting to 30 frames/sec. I had forgotten to adjust it the previous times.  Hence they are grainy. This is better and less than two minutes in all.

Whenever the next set of matches begin, I'll have to start all over again, if I stop attending the practice net sessions for too long.  Next time, I'll remember:

~ to measure my run up correctly - count 15 steps from the stumps [stump is zero].  
~ to start run up with left foot on the mark.
~ to mark the run up straighter rather than the angled one.

Sometimes I do not know why I forget the order!  Now that I got them back, I found the rhythm and felt comfortable. I was landing the left foot just behind the crease which was just fine.
