Hmmm. I just watched a great game of cricket. Both sides had heroes
and villains aplenty. (Can Daryl Lehmann hit the side of a barn? Can
Paul Reiffel catch away from the MCG?) But I can't help wondering about
Steve Waugh's bowling options. In South Africa's innings, Gibbs and
Kirsten were having no trouble playing the pace bowlers. Glenn McGrath
(one of the world's best bowlers) couldn't find a troubling length.
Then Shane Warne comes on and reminds us why he is a great bowler.
Shit! It looks like this wicket is taking fast, bouncy spin. Then
Steve Waugh gives "Kallis and Rhodes" a few overs of nice gentle "Moody
& Waugh M." to get their eyes in. Next thing you know, they're in the
high forties and South Africa are back in the match.
Somehow I feel that Mark Taylor would have tried a couple of overs of
Michael Bevan. He may have trouble landing it on a tarpaulin, but when
he gets it right, his leggie and wrong'un are magic.
Any opinions :)
