    mmm...so you do acknowledge that preceeding deliveries can actually eventually lead to a ball that takes a wicket....now we are getting somewhere with you

    Find me where I've said they never do?
    What I've said time and again and will continue to say is that things in which changes are easily spotted (length, line, angle-on-crease, etc.) are not something that will cause good batsmen problems; nor is a slow scoring-rate in a limitless-over game.
    But of course some things, principally such things as sideways and\or up-and-down movement, but also change-of-pace to a lesser extent, do cause doubt and it'd be terrible batsmenship if they didn't.
