  1. Keep weight on balls of feet when taking your stance.
  2. Feet facing "line of delivery" because the arm follows same line.

  6. Co-ordinate your step and swing.
  7. Avoid twisting your shoulders.

  12. Avoid pulling your arm across your body.
  13. Deliver out and forward with a normal follow-through.
  14. The palm of the hand should be facing along the "line of delivery" at the completion of the delivery.
  15. If "over bowling" your action could be too quick or over stepping.
  16. If "short bowling" your action could be too slow or under stepping.
  17. Bring your back foot up to your front foot after delivery of your bowl.
