    First thing:
    There are 3 types of Bowlers:
    Fast Bowlers: 
    These just throw the ball as fast as they can at the wicket.
    Spin Bowlers:
    These put side-spin to the ball to make it curl to confuse the batsman.
    Swing Bowlers:
    These try to confuse the batsman by swinging the ball at the last minute.
    How you know a good bowler:
    He will have a low Overall Rating(yes, I know it sounds wrong but thats it).
    When he bowls, the circle he bowls into will be small.
    How to bowl/Techniques:
    With a Fast Bowler:
    Aim at either the left or right side of the wicket, preferably the one 
    nearer the batsman. And Try to get Max Power and Max Speed. Hopefully
    the batsman will miss(not often), or hit it into the air where a catcher
    will be ready.
    With a Spin Bowler:
    Method 1:
    Aim anywhere, but make it near the Wicket. And change the spin so that the
    ball spins in towards the wicket. And hope it confuses the Batsman.
    Method 2:
    Aim for the centre of the wicket and spin it out to the batsman's side.
    Sometimes the ball will hit his inside edge and the wicketkeeper will get
    him out.
    With a Swing Bowler:
    Aim slightly to one side of the wicket(preferably not the batsman's one),
    and swing the ball into the wicket. The batsman will go to hit it, but at
    the last second it will swing away from him into the wicket.
    How to get Easy Wickets:
    There is a minor fault in the programming that lets you get left-handed
    batsmen out every time. When you select your fielders make sure you have
    at least two fast bowlers.
    When it gives you the option of Manual picking your opponents, do so.
    Now pick as many left handers as possible(West Indies have the most).
    When you begin the game and are preparing to bowl:
    Put the circle right up to the stumps, in between the centre and left
    wicket. Now select a slow speed and minimum power and if all done
    correctly every left-hander will be out first time for LBW!
    The reason I wrote this one is because I was looking through the Genesis
    Guides for games I still have, and I came across this game, again. I wanted
    to give you a guide for this game with more than only the controls. If I get
    people asking me for a more in-depth guide, I may do it.
