Shezi, 27-year old bowler of the Cape Cobras, told Langeveldt he wanted to improve his bowling and felt that adjusting his action might be the way to go. After viewing video footage of his action, Langeveldt suggested a few steps to aid the bowlers.
Shezi said he is hopeful that the amended action, which might take about five months to implement, will be instrumental in taking him to the next level.
The swing bowler grabbed a few headlines the past 18 months, especially at domestic level.
He and Kyle Abbott spearheaded the nail-biting 2-run win in a pulsating Ram Slam T20 Challenge for the Sunfoil Dolphins against the Cape Cobras in 2013/2014.
Representing the Cape Cobras the next season, Shezi featured in the victorious Ram Slam T20 Challenge for the Cape champions.
He also captured six for 51 in setting up the Cape Cobras’ win against The Unlimited Titans at Boland Park in Paarl in a domestic four-day match in 2014/2015.
Shezi nabbed out one for eight in six overs in his maiden One Day International game for South Africa against Zimbabwe. His economy and discipline were standout-features of a promising international debut for the Proteas.
Having tasted some success at the highest level, Shezi wants more, but realizes that the placement of his feet in his bowling action and his body position can all be improved during the next few months.
“I cannot stay at the same place as a bowler as last season, because other bowlers will improve and I need to do likewise,” said Shezi.
