    A Short History of Indian Pace Bowling

    A Short History of Indian Pace Bowling

    They picked a man who they heard could bowl fast. He did it once on test debut then became a medium pacer. India got sad and dropped him. They then picked a man who they heard could bowl fast...

    A short history: Amar Khan and Mohammad Nissar followed by bollocks followed by Kapil Dev followed by bollocks.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
