Out for the season with a stress fracture:
https://warwickshireccc.com/news/henry-brookes-update/
I wish I understood the body mechanics of this better than I do.  Why do so many young quick bowlers have stress fractures?  And what about the players of the past who didn't have specialist bowling coaches or physios etc.  I don't think Fred Trueman or Brian Statham or John Snow ever had stress fractures of the back.  Why was that?  They certainly bowled more overs than present day players and did less general fitness work (and sank a lot more pints of beer).

Did the players of old carry on through the aches and pains and possibly suffered the consequences later in life with arthritis etc whereas there is more awareness of the damage that can be done. Or was drinking beer the cure?
I've no idea - just trying to find an answer to the puzzle.

No, I don't know either!  If it's beer, maybe fast bowlers should be able to get it on prescription.
This article is worth a read:

Particularly interesting on the different risks of the three types of action and on how much bowling should be done at different ages, which for Henry would have been a maximum of 180 balls per week.
