I am sick of the Ignorant crap that is being posted in the forum about Sir Garry's Bowling. So I am starting this thread where we can post information about his bowling. I start with a Column from Sunny Gavaskar, who despite his faults, is one of my favorite cricketer and cricket writer .
Here it is :-
ON THE WRITE LINE -- Sunil Gavaskar Column
......But then Sobers was not only a batsman par excellence but a lethal quick bowler, who could swing the ball either way and when the ball got old he would bowl orthodox left-arm spin or 'chinaman'. And what about those astounding catches that he took. It was his outstanding skill in all the departments that made him the greatest cricketer ever in the history of the game.....
Nobody before and definitely nobody after Sir Garfield Sobers has ever come close to his skills and more importantly deeds. So perhaps the Barbados government should look at other spots where they can install statues of Sir Garfield Sobers as a bowler and as a fielder.
PS :- I would appreciate if this thread can be kept clean and all the statistical crap limited to other threads.
