If you look at his career, he mostly got his wickets with fuller deliveries, that is where his variation comes in handy. The other thing which is very, very important is that he needs to make sure that he doesn’t fall away from his body. So, when his non-bowling-arm is going away from his body, especially when he is delivering the ball, he needs to work on that and make sure it doesn’t follow; that it doesn’t just go towards the batsman.

If you look at his career, he mostly got his wickets with fuller deliveries, that is where his variation comes in handy. The other thing which is very, very important is that he needs to make sure that he doesn’t fall away from his body. So, when his non-bowling-arm is going away from his body, especially when he is delivering the ball, he needs to work on that and make sure it doesn’t follow; that it doesn’t just go towards the batsman.
