Short stuff

Cricinfo normally plots bowlers' lengths nicely, check out the number they did on Warne the other day.
Plot Kumble today, and you will find two striking features: One -- consistently on leg and leg and middle line to left handers; two, way too short too often. One no-no is bad enough, two is way too many.

  • yep, Kumble goes back to same mistakes. No wonder Ganguly didnt pick Kumble for ODIs (ofcourse kept on saying hes a champion bowler, its a tough decison etc ;-) This was Ganguly's diggest plus, realising the ODI attitude of players. Had the guts to drop Lax after 4 centuries in a season !

  • dont know where to place this comment, so i'm sneaking it in here:)
    This tournament has been boring as a whole and the cricket has been sort of diffident and ho-hum, esp after having watching the daily miracles happening in England. And to think that they are playing a Test series there, and an ODI tourney here!
