To begin with it is not called pitching, it is called Bowling and it is not done by the pitcher it is done by the bowler.
The most fundamental rule of bowling is that the arm with which the ball is released must remain straight therefore whereas in Baseball a pitcher will release from a standing position (or near enough) a bowler will use varying lengths of a run up to help to generate momentum of the ball.
There a three basic types of bowlers they are as follows:
Fast bowler - this is a bowler who's main weapon is the sheer velocity of the ball and the lack of time a batsmen has to react - thus being hurried into making a mistake.
Swing bowler - generally slower than a fast bowler but his aim is to make the ball swing through the air either away from the batsman or towards him.
Spin bowler - generally a much slower bowler who uses spin off the pitch - in that the ball only deviates when it hits the pitch.
