The test series ‘of the summer’ gets under way in less than a day and we answer all the questions that’s been ailing your thought process.
Who will drop like MJ ?
Who will be trip over and fall flat on their face? In short,
Who will loose their balls?
The ultimate guide.
He’s young, he’s tall and he has no technique outside off stump.
Pakistan might not have a Waquar and Wasim but Gul and that new fella Aamer will do nicely. He has enjoyed a free ride at the top of the order mainly because the rest of the openers SL are churning out are not up to the mark. We think his fairy tale will end. Quickly.
Verdict– Not nutmeg, but nutless. Hmm. Maybe one and a half nutless.
The bastard child. He play in the ICL, now he play the test cricket. Lalit Modi might have cared if it was the IPL. But he’s not, so he doesn’t.
Razaq last played a test like 400 years ago or something. Sure he can knock it about in a 2020 game but does he still remember hold to hold a red ball.
Does he even have white flannels ???
His stats against SL and in SL isnt even going to scare my granny. Mendis with four around him ?
Verdict – Do you even need to ask ?
Danish ‘Cookies’ Kaneria
With an average of 35 and a strike rate of 70 he is possibly one of the most overrated spinners in the game at the moment.
It has been suggested by some wily conspiracy theorists that his figures of 5-205 in the first test at Karachi was what pushed those terrorists over the edge in Lahore.
Sri Lankans usually play leg spin pretty well and Leg spinners usually don’t do so well in SL. Only Shane Warne has an average better than his overall figures in SL. Anils at 44 (29 Career), Mushie 40 (32 Career).
Don’t be surprised if Danish crumbles like a cookie- smirk.
Also, his middle name is ‘Prabha’. And you know how Sri Lankans take to dudes with that name. Even if it is your middle name.
Verdict– Cookies don’t have balls. So yea, Ball-less
