    Why Are Most Bowlers Called Doug Bollinger Left-Handed?

    I've noticed most bowlers called Doug Bollinger are left-handed. Why do you think this is? Is it because if your name is Doug Bollinger you have a natural tendency to favour the left-hand?

    And if he bowled right-handed would it feel like someone else was bowling?

    He wouldent get so many wickets if he only had one leg and plenty of other bowlers would be selected before him if he only had one leg. I suspect he only gets so many wickets because he has two legs.

    Definitely wouldn't have a Test career if Australia didn't usually play two left-armers, and if his name wasn't Doug Bollinger (and therefore he wasn't left-handed).
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    He was a dog called Doug but his Boll made him inger so everyone liked him untill Ricky Ponting used his evil forces to turn him into a human fast bowler.

    How can you possibly say he's anything but rubbish when he hasn't played against India yet?

    Because of the fact that introducing Phil Simmons, Brian Lara, Keith Arthurton, Jimmy Adams, David Williams and Kenneth Benjamin together was the dawn of a real new era. And not neccessarily a good one either.

    Yet to get an answer on this
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    So much more difficult to answer than a question about Sachin Tendulkar... the question in this thread is far more intelligent and deep I think.

    ..because most left handers called Doug Bollinger are not bowlers ...

    But yeah, most Bollers called Doug are definitely Doug Bollingers...
