    Who would you rather face?

    Just out of curiosity, who'd you rather face:

    Shoaib Akhtar (without drugs)
    or
    Shand Bond (without injuries)
    or
    Brett Lee

    Akhtar because Lee might bowl a beamer.

    Shane Bond. I can handle pace and swing on off or middle stump, but I'm very uncomfortable against short deliveries at my head.

    I myself would pick Bond, because I know he's not injured NOW, but by the time he completes his run-up he will be.

    It won't really matter when he knocks you in your casket with his beamer.

    EDIT: 1000 up, and it only took me 2 years.

    Shane Bond. He is probably a better bowler than both of these guys when he is not injured but he also doesn't bowl many bouncers.

    That's a bad thing because he'll be all over the place at 90+ mph.

    For avoiding injury - Bond.

    For scoring runs (as if! ) - Lee. Probably bowls more bad balls than either Akhtar and Bond when those two are firing, although he's more consistently at his best than those two.

    I wouldnt care.
    When i played cricket, i encountered some really fast ones (over 90mph) but i am pretty short, so i duck everything above chest height and full stuff i just play instinctively...works better..for reasons unknown to me, when it comes to sports, my instinctive side does a lot better than my analytical/planning side though the former rarely comes into play fully.

    I'd go with Lee though. While all these bowlers have the capability to be dangerous (in a wicket taking sense), Lee more often has the tendency to be distinctly ordinary.

    Not that it would really matter, as I'd probably crap my pants before I could score any runs.

    Who were these 90+ mph guys? I would've thought there aren't too many in the world that can do that considering we have less than 10 in international cricket who can pull it off.
