if a batsman change his stance (switch hit) while a bowler is in his delivery stride, can a bowler change his action meaning from left hand to right and vice versa?

Mark Butcher once again demonstrating his ignorance and no small degree of arrogance. Reductive, torpid analysis as usual. A typical 5-live style analyst with no understanding whatsoever of the cadences and subtleties of the game.I can only assume he is on this site as an attempt to placate the post 2005 'fans'

Well time has changed for cook and his men following a terrible show in the ashes.whats more worse is there ve been very little signs of englands fighting spirit in the ongoing ashes.from being the most celebrated test side over a few years to the most weakest stuttered and staggered test side
