It seems that way. Anytime we get anybody good or decent, or even very promising they get struck down by an injury, and then are riddled with injuries for the rest of the career. As a result New Zealand never got the best out of Dion Nash, Shayne O'Connor, Chris Cairns (as a bowler), and Geoff Allott because they were struck down with injury so much. Shane Bond can barely stay on the field for more then five minutes, especially in Tests, and as some have said, one of cricket's 'what-ifs', and something we will never know. And then we have a guy like Iain O'Brien who has now quit all NZ cricket to start a new life in England with his wife. Although he was injury prone, he did get the best out of himself and his stats don't tell the true story. Chris Martin is 35 and can't go on forever.
I can't think of too many countries where they have had such a problem with their fast bowlers and so many injuries. Why does this happen, and what is being done to stop it from happening?
