    But he could also time it and thread it through the covers with precision and beauty.
    He could hit it hard AND place it through the gap consistently.Not many players can do that.
    Lara was by no means a 'hit it hard and hope it doesn't go to hand player' of the cover drive.
    Love his cover drives.
    Word out son, miss Lara alot these days

    Yeah but that's just the end product, for mine. As his bat-swing started, his bat was headed towards mid-on. KP's problems against full swinging balls are the product of a similar tendency, I reckon.

    Steyn got him in SA in 2004, he got dismissed on at least 3 seperate occasions in the Ashes in 2005 and had a fair few problems in his final summer.
    Definately a few problems methinks with people believing Vaughan did the familiar thing wrong every time he got bowled. That Steyn exocet in 2004/05 was one example of a ball that was going to get anyone, any time; likewise (for reasons of uneven bounce rather than swing) the one McGrath got him with in 2005.

    Type in the name of a cricketer and see what they have. Typing cricket gives a massive assortment of short clips of players getting their tons or fifers.

    This is an interesting one of Bradman from 1963
    Still not sure how this ball hits the stumps
