Side on bowling view


  • Essential angle to send to Stuart.
  • Position camera at right angle to the bowlers stumps.
  • Footage taken from the bowlers ‘open side’ to capture bowlers chest through his/her action.
  • Zoom so bowler is as big as possible on the screen.
  • Start recording from 2/3 strides before the bowler takes off and include the full follow through.
  • See example above.
Back bowling view


  • Essential angle to send to Stuart.
  • Capture from directly behind the bowler in his/her run up.
  • Zoom to clearly capture the last 3/4 strides before take off into action.
  • Capture until the end of the bowlers follow through.
  • See example of the angle above.
Front on bowling view


  • Consider your safety before capturing front on footage!!!
  • This position is desirable although not essential.
  • Camera position directly in line with both batter and bowlers stumps.
  • Capture 2/3 strides before take off, include full follow through and ensure bowler is as big as possible at point of release as above.
  • See the example above regarding how big the bowler needs to be at ball release.
