Former Sri Lanka fast bowling coach Anusha Samaranayaka warns Hardik Pandya and Mohammed Siraj

“I know the root cause of Pandya’s back injury and it’s preventable, if dealt with properly. It is very common to have back injuries on ‘side on’ fast blowers because they tend to close their hips at the take off point. “As a result of this, they tend to have a shift, at take-off to back foot landing. Because of this, they cannot jump straight but are more likely to jump away while bowling. Due to this continuous strain on the back, they tend to get back injuries. ”Hardik Pandya and Mohammed Siraj will have to open their hips right before jumping to get sideways while they are airborne. This, as a result, will avoid continuous strain on the back”
