Side plank crucial for cricketers

I was amused to come across this picture of Monty Panesar the England spin bowler performing a well-formed weighted side plank: Monty was famously inept in the field – both at catching and at throwing in from the out-field.

That side plank will work wonders for his abs and glutes – all contributing to a solid core – and, by setting himself with a bit of torque and using a whipping technique, he will really improve that throwing arm.
