Let’s talk about a new delivery that has found its way into the game with the growth of the Twenty20 format. However it is not limited to only that format of the game and can be employed successfully towards the latter part of an innings in even One Day Internationals (ODI’s).

I’m sure you are aware of the standard Yorker or toe crusher. For those who do not know, this delivery is bowled to hit directly at the batsman’s feet. In most cases this is also in line with the wickets and therefore it has the potential to be a great wicket taking delivery.

When bowling the Yorker, there are two main goals in mind, either to get the batsman bowled or catch him LBW (Leg Before Wicket). When this is done effectively it not only have a great chance of getting a wicket but can also effectively reduce the batting sides ability to score runs. I like to try hitting the batsman right on the toes, that is my thought process.

Especially towards the end of an innings, when the batting side is looking to accelerate and score as many runs as possible/chase down a particular score, the Yorker can be used to reduce the scoring rate. The delivery itself can be extremely difficult to bowl, because if you overpitch slightly it then becomes a full toss which is in most cases easier to play for the batsman. If you fall a bit short, the batsman can now get under the ball and possibly hit you over the top.

Now we can talk about the Wide Yorker. This is when you want to deliver a Yorker a bit wider from the stumps (towards the offside). The intention behind this is to reduce scoring as getting a wicket from this type of delivery would be extremely difficult. This is also something to consider if the batsman is moving around before the ball is being delivered.

When you do this you want to make sure you have enough protection on the off side to prevent the ball being squeezed through the point or cover region if the delivery is overpitched. However, if delivered correctly it can be extremely difficult to score off it at all.

It is just another delivery you should practice and consider using at times when you need to dry up the scoring and frustrate the opposition. You could even follow it up with a few Yorkers directed at the stumps in an attempt to catch the batsman off guard and hopefully get him out.

    suppose you added a little content? I ain’t saying
    your content isn’t good, however what if you added a post title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean The Wide Yorker –
    The Ultimate Cricketer is a little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and
    note how they create post headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people interested about what you’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little livelier.
