Kinematic studies have shown that fast bowlers have run-up velocities, based on centre of mass velocity calculations, which are comparable to elite javelin throwers. In this study, 34 fast bowlers (22.3 ± 3.7 years) of premier grade level and above were tested using a three-dimensional (3-D) motion analysis system (240 Hz). Bowlers were divided into four speed groups: slow-medium, medium, medium-fast, and fast. The mean centre of mass velocity at back foot contact (run-up speed) was 5.3 ± 0.6 m… 
The impact of centre of mass kinematics and ground reaction forces on ball release speeds in cricket fast bowling
The aims of this study were to verify previously reported relationships between whole-body centre of mass kinematics and ball release speed, and establish whether the ‘checking of linear motion’ or
Relationships between fast bowling technique and ball release speed in cricket.
TLDR
Those technique variables that best explain the differences in release speeds among fast bowlers are identified, indicating that the fastest bowlers have a quicker run-up and maintain a straighter knee throughout the front foot contact phase.
CENTRE OF MASS MOTION DURING THE PUNT KICK
Centre of mass (COM) motion has been linked to performance in kicking and cricket bowling. The aim of this study was to examine COM motion during the punt kick. Five elite Australia Footballers

The association between lower limb biomechanics and ball release speed in cricket fast bowlers: a comparison of high-performance and amateur competitors
TLDR
From a joint power analysis, the extensor muscle groups of the hip and knee were shown to be important in developing ball release speed and highlights the need for lower limb/core strength programmes to be multifaceted and focus on the muscles associated with both power and stability.
Not as simple as it seems: Front foot contact kinetics, muscle function and ball release speed in cricket pace bowlers
TLDR
Results indicate pace bowlers with greater peak braking GRF during FFC generally elicit higher BRS, and the lack of a linear relationship between BRS and other variables, highlights the complexities and inter-individual variability inherent to pace bowling at a high-level.
Does stride length play a role in cricket fast bowling performance outcomes? An observational, cross-sectional study
TLDR
It can be concluded, given the results of the current study and previous injury-related research, that in no way is it advantageous for bowlers to have a stride length that exceeds the recommended 75–85% of standing height.
The influence of technique and physical capacity on ball release speed in cricket fast-bowling
TLDR
Ball speed was associated with faster run-ups, shorter BFC times and abrupt FFC GRF application, and coaches should also consider sprint speed and lower-body strength as important modifiable factors for fast-bowlers.
Effect of Ball Weight on Speed, Accuracy, and Mechanics in Cricket Fast Bowling
TLDR
Ball speed decreased at a rate of about 1.1 m/s per 100 g increase in ball weight, and there was evidence that training with underweight and overweight balls might have produced a practically meaningful increase in bowling speed in some players without compromising accuracy or increasing their risk of injury through inducing poor bowling mechanics.

Anthropometric and kinematic influences on release speed in men’s fast-medium bowling
TLDR
The main aim of this study was to identify significant relationships between selected anthropometric and kinematic variables and ball release speed and to conclude that the variance in release speed within this group may be accounted for by the difference in radial length between the axis of rotation at the glenohumeral joint and the release point.

TLDR
There is sufficient evidence in the literature to establish a strong link between injury to the lower back and the use of the mixed technique, and for research into other aspects of injury.
Physiological responses and bowling performance during repeated spells of medium-fast bowling
TLDR
Investigating the relationship between physiological and performance responses during repeated 6-over fast-bowling spells in well-trained bowlers results in minimal performance decrement in mild conditions, and the maintenance of high final 5-m run-up speeds might be important to maintaining bowling speed.
Simultaneous measurement of back and front foot ground reaction forces during the same delivery stride of the fast-medium bowler
TLDR
Six male cricket bowlers performed their typical bowling action at a set of stumps positioned at standard pitch length and a specially designed force platform rig allowed the correct positioning of two force platforms to be achieved beneath an outdoor polyflex runway for each player's delivery stride pattern.
