When I restarted found it was hard for me to bowl like this, most my balls were going down leg, so tried a side on action and began to develop some rhythm and form. However even though I had spells were I bowled well, each time I bowled I found that my action changed a bit, I found it very hard to bowl with the same action consistently.
This is something I am doing subconciously, maybe when I feel like I am not bowling well I change things up? Would like some tips from guys who feel like they might have been through the same
A few years ago I was the same, and the only thing I can say is make sure you are aligned, ie if your feet land in a side on position make sure your body has the same alignment.
After this, the only thing you can do is practice, and make sure you do everything exactly the same way, make sure you have a comfortable run up and mark it out every time you bowl.
