    Yeah it would be surprising if some massive, black, fast bowler had a poor arm when he was younger.

    Not sure whether a massive, well-built fast bowler is any more or less likely to have a good arm whether his skin is black or any other colour TBH, but as-a-rule, quality quick bowlers have fine arms. Exceptions are very rare, in fact I can't OTTOMH think of any.

    Haha, well just generally you'll find that black people (take a look at the 100m sprinters in the Olympics, for instance) tend to be more well built and muscular than white people. Big generalisation, but that alludes to having stronger arms, no?

    Imran Khan was not best of fielders...he wouldn't dive even to save his own life....i remember in a test match against WI in 91, Wasim came twice on hatrick in same over...and on of those occasions, Imran dropped a dolly, an absolute dolly, ( i think it was Walsh the batsmen, who tried to play the ball towards midwicket/mid on got a leading edge and Imran spilled that chance........Wasim's expression was price less.....anyone else....any one other than Imran and akram would have killed the guy on ground...but since it was the big khan...akram couldn't even express his disappointment

    Not a "great" batsman but a fine one, and one with such a silky touch that his wooden and erratic fielding was quite incongruous: Michael Vaughan

    Hmm, I always remembered Vaughan to be quite good actually. Might just be watching him when I was younger and knew less about cricket though. I think his crocked knees might have something to do with him being a bit immobile towards the end of his career though.

    I don't recall Sir Geoffrey ever being anything other than very ordinary in the field

    Sorry mate, but I have Sir Geoffery's word that he was infact the best bloody fielder in Yorkshire. Just to clear it up.

    I remember him dropping a catch and hurling the ball at the stumps in frustration and running a batsman out. IIRC it was against South Africa thought I think I'm wrong. If someone could find a Youtube clip or even Cricinfo commentary or just confirm I'm right that'd be ideal for my sanity.

    Edit : Not South Africa.

    Mahmood to Shahriar Nafees, OUT, well, that was quite extraordinary. Vaughan, who's not the best fielder in the world, made his normal efforts look Jonty-like by dropping that most armchair of sitters at short midwicket. Fortunately for him he put his anger to good, if accidental, use by flinging the ball over to Nixon ... and getting the run out. Nafees, then, keeps his wicket and Bashar loses his - Bashar had given up, and was just dawdling, having turned his back on Vaughan, expecting him to hold on to that one


    Habibul Bashar run out 4 (21m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22
    Yeah, Test and ODI, SA and Bangladesh it's all the same to me.
