I have no idea if there’s any basis to this or not, but at the time Bond was at his brief peak, there were three express bowlers in the world - two of them played for Pakistan and Australia, the third was Bond. Who incidentally loved terrorising Australia at least in limited overs cricket so that might at least partly add to why Indians loved him soA lot of Indians are crazy about Shane Bond. People just loved his smooth and beautiful action and the ease at which he generated pace. Was a great bowler to watch when in full rhythm. It's weird but they also loved him for his surname lol.
It's sad that his career turned out the way it did, getting cut short by chronic injuries.
