    Mark Wood's new run up reminds me of Shoaib Akhtar

    Was watching Mark Wood rip through the West Indies line up, generating 152+kph speeds. His run-up and action was reminiscient of Shoaib.

    Great to see him perform well. Run-up certainly looks longer than it used to be.

    No it's not, not liking his head position also feels like both hands are going away from the body..

    Terrible action though, not sure from where is generating such pace.

    I asked my contact at ECB. His reply

    I know it looks similar, but no. He has worked with Chris Silverwood and Kevin Shine on extended his run up. Helps him gather pace and more importantly takes pressure off his ankle and Achilles.

    That was a real bad *** spell.

    However my concerns with Wood is that his pace drops drastically from his second spell onwards. In his first spell he is routinely at 145-153 km/hr but after that he drops down to 136-138 km/hr which is a big difference. But without a doubt he is England's best bowler with the old ball and can be trusted to knock over the tail with his blistering reverse swinging Yorkers.

    same lethal mark wood was taken to the cleaners by Adil Amin recently in Pakistan A vs England Lions series where he scored 120 of 80 or 70 odd balls with 10 sixes so that means Adil Amin is really talented

    Yeah, his timing is better, he’s not trying to muscle his way to 90 mph now, so he should be able to sustain his pace.
