KP especially was horrific given how he played Warne & Murali in the past battles.
So maybe "controlled aggression" is the right term, but they certainly with better play should not have gotten out to Harris.
They couldn't. These where two legends who combined the ability to initidate best of batsmen - through a great ability to tie them down & produce fantastic deliveries.Originally Posted by Uppercut
So unless they where the calibre of Lara, Tendy - they couldn't have shown has much conviction as they wanted. They generally came out second best.
Harris on the other hand, as i said before. Is a nothing bowling who basically in a SA attack of the last 2 years, in which the pace trio of has been the main soruce of wickets. Harris main use is to block up and end, given that he's accurate - and batsmen generally due to the fact that they see him as garbage, foolishly get themselves out.
Now that Ntini is in delcine, Morkel not yet stepping up & Kallis days as a bowler coming to an end. Just leaving Steyn as the big quick. He will be well exposed & I expect my point to be validated in the next year or so.
If not well so be it, i aint nostradamus
Or rather the SA pace trio deserves credit for putting batsmen under pressure, thus basically turning him into a "smash me please" option for batsmen. He deserves no credit.Originally Posted by Uppercut
Could you imagine him being in NZ's side in the games they played vs Australia since 2000.
The batsmen super aggressive, generally average opening bowlers & him having to basically contain & get batsmen out like Vettori did?. He would have been destroyed, since he does nothing with the ball, his little ability to be accurate wouldn't mean a thing.
Fact is guys like Giles, Wiseman could to the job he is doing for SA just as well...
