    Ghulam Mudassar's action change

    A few days ago I heard Dr Nauman Niaz say that Ghulam Mudassar has changed his action and is now slower.

    A day later Ghulam Mudassar said in the Interview that he has been working extensively with Aqib Javed on his action.

    Did anyone else catch that? I never saw this kid bowl before so I am asking:

    1. How has Ghulam Mudassar's action changed?
    2. How much pace has he lost due to it?
    3. Why was his action changed?

    If he has been working with Aqib Javed then Ghulam's career has ended before it even began. Unfortunate for the kid.

    He's more side-on but not getting the same extension in the load up. Now he's solely relying on the final arm whip to generate pace.

    Aaqib is generally a fast bowler killer. He messes up many, in recent past. Waqar or Shoiab should lead in that role, they can make a guy bowl fast, correct the right stuff, not slow him down

    Ghulam's action did need refining. Going side-on was necessary but now he has to work on that load up. Can't be dropping the lead arm so quickly and relying solely on the bowling arm and he has to increase the distance between them(as was prior to the change) to lengthen the arm-path. He should be looking to emulate Starc in that regard.

    His action was quite complicated. His fitness and strength needed improvement. That's it.


    Without the aid of Biomechanists or human movement expert his action shouldn't have been tinkered with be it be any Coach.

    Aqib def seems to think nothing of both those, been successfully killing careers since the mid 2000's, list is getting pretty decently long now!

    PCB were about to sign him as a coach after WY.... MICKEY spoiled Aaqib's party and saved pak...

    He is the director for LQ... Aaqib's bowling action was very simple, not sure on back of what he is changing bowling actions of players just randomly....

    Every young bowler should pray that he must not get selected for LQ and also should avoid going for the trials conducted by them...

    The changes he made in Ghulam's case were necessary. Remember, Aqib hasn't finished work with Ghulam, meaning there is a possibility that he will regain his lost pace.

    Ehtisham has been working with Aqib for over a month now and thus far he's done well and made some good progress.

    Ehtisham isn't collapsing as much and is now bracing his front leg.

    How does Aqib get these head coach's job ? Lets give him to India before Champion Trophy, that would be our only hope against India . Yadev, Kumar all need their action corrected, Aaqib can help.

    Ghulam has been more accurate since his action change. Also gets more wickets. I guess people here dislike Aaqib that much that anything he says or does is evil automatically.

    He is not bowling as fast as previously. Previously he swung the ball back into right handers while pitching it up. Now he is unable to do that.

    It might take time to get used to the modifications. Aaqib gives suggestions to help some bowlers to become less injury prone. He doesnt totally change their action. Now he has a chance to become something in the long run.

    Anyway time will tell. But these days he is pretty consistent with the ball.

    His Action was so complicated that it shouldn't have been tinked with at all. Just his head position should have been worked at which is totally ignored.


    Such actions are modified scientifically through experts in high performance centres. We neither have centres nor the machines or human resource so there is absolutely no justification for Hit and Trial methodology with a teenager.


    I respect your opinion but I see the same accuracy with drop in pace and absense of swing. Results are more or less similar but these were batsman heaven wickets.

    Don't agree with Doc Nauman completely but he said that previously he could hit 145 and now he is 135 kph.

    I would say his fastest previously looked 142 143. Now his bouncers look as quick as before but pitchef up deliveries are atleast 5 kph slower and swing is gone.

    They haven't changed much, just made him more side-on. The drop in pace is due to less extension. His arms are closer together and he's just whipping through without extending much at the crease. He's got to lengthen the distance between his arms but instead of the torso opening up as it did previously, he's gotta hold his side-on position. This is definitely possible. Starc is the bowler he should be looking to emulate. He's more whippy than Starc but holding the front arm for a bit longer is what he's lacking.
