Glenn McGrath's bowling tips for beginners

1: Be tall.

2: Try and land six balls out of six, three inches outside off-stump. When you hit the seam, the ball should strike the very top of off-stump if it goes one way and should find the edge of the bat if it goes the other way.

It's sometimes helpful to identify a particular blade of grass to aim for. That way you know at what exact fraction of a picosecond to release the ball.

3: Beginners often make the mistake of not being tall or of landing the ball in several different spots. If you're prone to these mistakes, apply steps one to two.

The most crappiest tips i have ever read. I am sure this is just a fake effort.

And FYI, being tall or short doesn't decide the effect of bowling. If it would have, there wouldn't have been fantastic bowlers in the history of cricket.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK MY BOY!!

I dont think he is talking about the height factor here. While delivering (releasing) the ball, your poster should be as tall as posible, lot of bowlers tend to bend down. So he is just saying stand tall.

Good tips.
