THE ROAR ON
If Best hits a good line and length he can be dangerous, looks like you where right about McCullum and Taylor, both with 100's.
The windes do have some good young bowlers coming through. I just hope they develop into quality test bowlers.
Just a side note, is there any reason why the test batsmen at least didn't play this round of shield games? This is why the Shield is at such a low ebb. It is not like our middle order couldn't use some more time in the middle.
Having grown up watching the great West Indies teams, Lillee and Thommo, even Allan Donald, that felt like I was watching real Test cricket for the first time in a long time. The modern game has made it too easy to get onto the front foot. Couple that with the rarity of true fast bowling and suddenly people are shocked by what I call real cricket. I does break me inside a little to see players with pads and helmets covering everything, facing a bowler who was not bowling express by international standards playing that way.
Comparing it to bodyline is massively over the top, this was just good test match cricket.
