In cricket sports, a bowling machine is a device available for the batsman to practice inside the nets. The batsman could hone specific skills as the machine keeps bowling according to the preset length, line and speed required by the batsman. This fills the void of not having a bowler of required style and standard.
Mostly its used with a remote control, so the coaches could stay close to the batsmen and coach them to perfection. There are various types of bowling machines available in the market for both individual coaches as well as for malls and resorts. There are low cost machines, three wheeled machines up to advanced bowling robots available in the market.
The mechanical bowling machines which are commonly used are simple, strong and reliable and able to bowl a range of deliveries. It has pneumatic rubber tyres and its own electric motor, which are powered by car batteries and could turn in opposite directions. A controller allows variation of the speed of each wheel and it allows the machine to slow down for beginners and less experienced batsmen. These machines work with both cricket balls as well as tennis balls. However its best to use the balls made by the company which are usually hard plastic and covered in dimples. These dimples help with the swinging characteristics to the type of delivery desired.
Bowling machines help with simulating all kinds of deliveries in fast bowling, swing bowling, spin and seam bowling. Pneumatic bowling machines are different and less common to mechanical bowling machines. Seam bowling is not possible in this machine. There are programmable bowling machines which are not just for regular use in clubs with limitations in bowling. These machines are intended to overcome those limitations and bowl different types of delivery in quick succession. One disadvantage of these computer-controlled machines is, it provides no indication of the type of ball it is about to bowl until the ball has left the machine. The batsmen learn to bat on their instinct instead of second guessing the bowler.
