It's been seen by 60 million viewers in India already. I'm in hiding with the phones all off.

I reckon you could make a case for Johnson being the fastest bowler in the world at the moment. Other quicks can match or better him over 2 or 3 overs, but Mitch seems to be able to bowl a whole lot of overs and still hit 150 ks at the end of the day.

It's not an unreasonable shout and he certainly bowled more consistently quick than Steyn over the winter but the latter ended up carrying the
Saffer attack in the home series and looked properly knackered towards the end.

He was carrying a virus in England and went straight to hospital when he got home. Was there for a month, so we never saw the best of Steyn.

He's a strong lad, but isn't there the risk he will break down more often than not (in training more than playing cricket)?

It does seem a bit odd that there's such a vast amount of hype about a bowler who hasn't picked up a red ball in anger. Even if he can sustain the pace in game conditions, that's hardly all that bowling is about.

I would like to see how they have all done in a years time and who is still playing Tests and what new under 25 year olds have appeared. All are still developing and should be near the finished article when they reach their thirties.

Steyn is head and shoulders above the rest with Asif about the next best.

I think MM was refering to the % of bowleds by the England bowlers and not the actual wicket taking. Flintoff and Broad are more likely to get their dismissals caught.

30.5% - Anderson
20.5% - Broad
16.1% - Flintoff

Well great news that Bond has been released from his ICL contract with all the other New Zealand players.

'Today's board decision means that former ICL players will be considered for inclusion in the Black Caps' tour to Sri Lanka in August-September, and a New Zealand A tour to India in August'.

He will be 35 on Sunday.
Bond played for the Delhi Giants in 2008
11 wickets at 35.81 econ 6.60 s/r 32.54

17 Tests - last played 8 Nov 07
67 ODIs - 24 Apr 07
9 20/20s - 22 Sept 07

Last first class game for Hants 6 Jun 08

List A matches last played for Canterbury Jan 09
(73 overs 16 wickets at 19.93 econ 4.36 s/r 27.37)

20/20s Feb 09
24 overs 11 wickets at 14.36 econ 6.58 s/r 13.09

It's crazy that he made his Test debut seven and a half years ago and has only played 17 Tests. It will be interesting to see how many more he plays.

At 35 he may well never play again. When is the next NZ test series coming up?

He won't be able to play for 6months will he? Due to the amnesty thing.

He may be 35 but he hasn't done very much bowling in his career.
1621 first class overs. Gough at 37 had bowled 7337 overs.

I would say Bond had another two years international cricket.

That depends on how many other useful international bowlers you think NZ has but it isn't just bowling that ages players. At 35 Bond will almost certainly have lost some pace and may or may not have the other attributes necessary to compensate enough for that still to be a good pick. He was extremely good though, so he might have.

Andy Roberts on the bouncer

What is the key to bowling it?

A bouncer requires a lot of effort, which I used to try to conceal. A good bouncer is always a surprise one. Your run-up must not show any sign of what you are try to do.

Where must the ideal bouncer reach the batsman?

Around the neck and straight at him.

What sort of variations do you need in a bouncer?

Most of mine were bowled on different types of deliveries. I would bowl an inswing bouncer, an outswing bouncer, a straight one - the straighter one was the most effective. Holding it across the seam has the most telling effect: if it lands on the seam it will rear up at the batsman, if it lands on the shiny side it will skid on to him, if it hits the rough side it will climb on him, but not as quickly.

You were famous for your slow and fast bouncers...

Those are the effort balls I was talking about. With some bowlers you can definitely tell if they are trying to bowl a bouncer: they will run in quicker. Today you see many fast bowlers not jumping at the point of delivery. A lot of them go straight without any vertical take-off, as it is very important in generating pace without showing it in the run ups.


We have commentators like Ian Ward asking of the slower bouncer, is that intentional and others talking about all these new deliveries being bowled in 20/20s. It's all been done before by the experts.
