If you were the captain of your team, what type of ball would you advice to your bowler.
….and yeah, who would that bowler be (some captains may prefer a spinner thats why)
good idea Monti, but the bowler has to be totally focussed in order to avoid that bouncer being called a “wide”
In that kind of a situation,the batsmen expect the bowler to bowl a yorker or a low full toss so they are prepared to face that kind of a delivery.
If a bouncer is bowled,i think the probability of the batsman scoring a 4 will be low.
I also liked the answer by Gladiator,a slow off or leg cutter outside off stump would also be a good option.You have to bowl something which the batsman is not expecting.
A wide ball will not hurt much.You still need 3 to win and the batsman will strill have to look for a boundary.
I can’t think of many batsmen who can execute a hook shot properly and that too under pressure and that too while thinking that the bowler would bowl a slow ball or a yorker.
I like the Smashing Pumpkin xmas song and the No Doubt xmas song. I really think Gradma got run over by a reindeer should be on that list. And White Christmas by Bring Crosby…yeah yeah it is a classic…but I have never liked that song.
And the best list, most of the songs I have never heard. But John Lennon’s War is Over was a good choice.
Yeah he is the best spinner currently.Unlike Harbhajan,he certainly does more than smile & sledge shamelessly & unlike Murali,he picks up wickets on all tracts.He recently picked up about 20+ wickets in a series in South Africa-probably the first ever spinner to do so.His batting is also much better.His action is very authentic & also very traditional & he doesn’t bowl illegal doosras,teesras,etc,
