I didn’t hate him doing it admittedly and usually he got it right.McGrath always gets a lot of stick for this, but I always saw it as a fairly facetious response to reporters asking a stupid question.
And still managed to play a big role in two victories hereProbably close to my favourite bowler of all time.
Short bowler, express pace, great action and could swing the ball both ways. The fire to boot.
Not relying on his physical traits meant he was awesome in India, he had the pace, the low skiddy bounce and the reverse swing skills to kill it there.
He's in my personal all time XI.
The 4th best SR of all time for bowlers with more than 100wkts and pretty much #1 when you consider he's about 300 wkts clear of those ahead of him on that list. A SR of 42 with 439 test wickets is just nuts.
Probably doesn't get the recognition he deserves in Australia, as of all the countries, he was pretty average here for his standards.
My point was if you ask an athlete how they think they are going to go in an upcoming tournament, you're putting them in a bit of a no-win situation. If they think they'll win they're arrogant, if they think they'll lose they lack self belief.I didn’t hate him doing it admittedly and usually he got it right.
It did expose a bit of underlying arrogance that surpassed that of most of his contemporaries though (not without merit admittedly)
Holy f*** what a ballThe moment that comes to mind immediately when i think of Dale Steyn. Michael Clarke was in sublime form at this point of his career but was dismissed by sensational piece of bowling.
Dale Steyn vs Steve Smith would have been brilliant to watch in South Africa last year. A phenomenal bowler and competitor who'll be missed on the field.
I've long searched for even a short highlights of that battle only in vain. I searched in twitter wondering if I could find some link and I did find a few links on YouTube but surprise surprise, all of those channels had been taken down. The BCCI really is an insufferable organisation.He was unplayable which goes to show how good Tendulkar was. Could have had him out numerous times. Balls moving both ways. Incredible.
Ive tried hard to find extended highlights of that innings over the years but failed - BCCI copyright perhaps? Id even buy the whole test if I could somehow. Anyone know where to get such a thing should it exist?
It's mean-spirited to be that legal about the internet.I've long searched for even a short highlights of that battle only in vain. I searched in twitter wondering if I could find some link and I did find a few links on YouTube but surprise surprise, all of those channels had been taken down. The BCCI really is an insufferable organisation.
