Boony are you going to get out or am I going to come around the wicket and kill you?Forgot about Hadlee, absolute poetry in motion. My ultimate fast bowling attack - Curtly, Wasim, Hadlee with Warne providing the spin.
Good luck to the top order in the 2nd test when Marshall comes in, still pissed off he was carrying the drinks in the 1st test
One of my favs to watch too.Prompted by a cricinfo story today about him playing his last match for Hampshire, certainly not the prettiest bowler but one I absolutely loved watching was Fidel Edwards.
bowled nearly 160km/h, it was just unapologetic ‘I’m going to hit your head, break your toes, get smashed for boundaries, or get you out’ fast bowling. Had an ordinary average but an ok strike rate - 58, and on his day was a real thrilling bowler to watch with the express run up and javelin action.
He was the sort of bowler I could have easily tolerated being in the squad with Roach and holder who both keep things tight. It’s why Gabriel has thrived I reckon because there is less pressure on him to bowl tight and they know that even when he’s leaking runs a wicket taking ball is never too far away. Edwards never really had the chance to bowl a lot with teammates who had great control. In fact Taylor was another bowler from the same mould who could both lethal deliveries mixed with uneconomical drossOne of my favs to watch too.
Had that action where if he was on he would bowl rockets anything slightly off and he brisk medium.
