However, the express bowler also suffered a number of terrible wounds, with his ankle being the most vulnerable part. The former cricketer, who was most recently saw playing in the second season of the Legends League Cricket, suggested pacers avoid using big weights in the gym.

“We see lots of bowlers lifting heavy weights like squats, leg press, body weights, bench press, bicep-curls … I want to make it clear gym work is important but if you want to bowl over 150ks, lean-muscle mass is the key. Don’t be lifting heavy weights, it’s slow (arm) action. You need fast-twitch muscles for fast bowling. I was 16 times my body weight, and so had six ankle operations, but it was also why I bowled fast because of pressure and power. A bit like a Pole vaulter, getting through and over your action,”

I reckon they are rubbish”
