[an error occurred while processing this directive]Chennai: Indian medium pacers Javagal Srinath, Venkatesh Prasad, Harvinder Singh and Reetinder Singh Sodhi, were given tips by formerAustralian speedster Dennis Lillee on taking corrective actionto help them perform better on Friday.Srinath, facing 'a minor problem' (bending his back while releasing the ball) was able to bowl better, including his outswingers, within minutes of receiving advice from the legendary Aussie at the MRF Pace Foundation here.Prasad was asked to change his movement before releasing the ball for bowling a good line and length, while Harvinder was told to shorten his run up slightly to maintain line and length. Reetinder was asked to come 'side on'. Though Lillee considered these as 'small technical things', he emphasised that technique was very important to perform well in match situations. Lillee considered these as routine happenings. "The same happens to Australian bowlers. I think because sometimes you play so much cricket, you do not have a break to go back to the nets to practice as much as you can. One develops bad habits. It depends on things like playing on different wickets and different balls. It is a small thing," he said.On the BCCI's decision to send South Africa bound Indian bowlers to the foundation, Lillee said, "The idea was that I should have a look and see if there is any problem with them."
