Getting back to full pace

Brian Lara and Jermaine Lawson have a chat
Brian Lara passes on his advice to Jermaine

Because of a back injury and a problem with his bowling arm, Jermaine was forced to remodel his bowling action.

He tells the Academy about how he managed to get back to full fitness again.



Jermaine Lawson


When I injured my back, I was out of cricket for a year and I didn't play any first class cricket during that time.

But with faith, hard work and dedication I'm really pleased at getting back in the West Indies squad.

Previously I was falling away when I was bowling. But I'm much more upright now which means I'm more consistent with my line.

I'm pleased with myself but there's a lot more work to be done - there's always room for improvement.

Recently I've been getting back to the pace I was bowling before.

I'm just taking my time and looking to serve the West Indies for the next 10-15 years. I feel the full pace will be back consistently soon.

I will give it 100% and once I do that everything will fall into place.

I enjoy bowling with all the bowlers in the West Indian team, They're all aggressive and put 100% into their bowling.

At times when you're not getting it right, the next bowler can cover for you so in that regard I like bowling with Pedro Collins.
