    A hail of bumpers this spell.

    EDIT: **** me, how out were some of those shouts? Surprised Swampy had any pad left with Marshall knocking on his front door every second ball.
    Ha that second ball was missing off and leg.

    WI in that era was the best bowling attack ever. They just kept putting out teams with 3 or 4 of the best quicks to ever play the game in the same side. It was hard watching your team getting brutalised by it, but it wasn't just short pitched stuff and it sure wasn't unfair. They were just too damn good and the fact should be celebrated. The international game would so so much better if a new generation of ATG fast bowlers could be found in the Caribbean to hunt in a pack like that again.

    Fantastic vieo because it captures what used to be the weekly Richie whinge about the front foot no ball rule.
