Bret Lee; my favourite of the really fast bowlers.
If he makes a return to cricket, his test cricketing days are over. It’s not really a surprise that he is bowing out of the longer form, at 33 and with a history of injuries, one of which he has yet to overcome, it’s very sad but also probably a good idea. On the upside he was bowing at 95 mph during the pictured match, and took 5 for 49 in 9 overs. So if his elbow comes good, it will still be a thrill to see him play. Let’s hope his elbow does the right thing!
No matter if it’s limited overs or Test cricket Tendulkar can pull the goods out of the bag. Today it was the first double century in a one day match, against strong opposition; the South Africans. Well done Sir! [And that was some wagon wheel too!]
And yes – a picture of Tendulkar as a Test bowler – what else did you expect from this blog?
In the second ODI against India, England women’s top bowler struck with 5 for 22, a career best. This time in a tight 3 run win over India. Jenny Gunn also did well adding 64 runs and 2 wickets at 38.
