Here's a bit from this interivew:
Wright is hoping for a lot from the seamers, who he feels, have a "a
good opportunity to keep the ball up, make the batsmen come on the
front foot when the ball is moving around a bit".
The seamers' inability to bowl longer spells, of course, is a point of
worry. "At present stamina is quite a problem. They probably need a
bit more strength. They need to be fit after bowling long spells or
coming back after lunch or tea. That's the area we need to develop."
Wright knows that to do well in international cricket India needs at
least two quality strike bowlers. "We can't expect Harbhajan knocking
over the sides on the first day of a Test when we are touring abroad.
So we have got to work *** that".
The coach expects the cricket academies would help spot fast bowlers
"who are different from batsmen in the sense that while batsmen take
time to mature, fast bowlers just turn up one fine day."
So, next on Wright's priority list, after all rounders, are fast
bowlers. "There is some promise but we need performance. We need to be
on the look out for fast bowlers. Javagal Srinath at the moment is
looking sharp. And there is quite a bit of battle for the other two
medium pacers' slot".
Ho, ho, ho.
