Medium pace bowling


Medium pace bowling

Medium pace bowling is a style of bowling in the sport of cricket. It can be considered a sub-category of fast bowling, if bowling styles are seen as two categories, the other category being spin bowling. Practitioners of medium pace bowling are usually known as "medium pace bowlers" or "medium pacers", although sometimes the label used refers to the specific bowling technique the bowler prefers, such as "swing bowler" or "seam bowler".

Many medium pace bowlers are fast bowlers who do not achieve the higher degrees of pace generated by top fast bowlers. Faster medium pacers may be categorised as medium-fast or fast-medium depending upon the pace achieved.
