    UPDATE ON BOND.

    The latest on Shane Bond is that New Zealand cricket are working on his action, and changing it completely to stop the injuries. If bond does return I believe he will be a medium fast bowler bowling around 135-140kmph.

    If you look closely at his current action you will see that he feet are out of alignment causing him to crunch his back everytime he bowls.

    there goes one of our best strike bowlers.

    140 kph in swinging yorker may be dangerous,but a 154 kph in-swingin' yorker is more deadly then a tomahawk missile.

    Yeah very disappointing to think that he not going to be able to come back to his best but lets hope her can do a mcgrath like job now. At least this will mean he will spend more time on the field and less on the sideline.

    i saw the news a few weeks ago and it said he would lose only a little speed. But not that much.

    If I recall correctly he bowled brilliantly against the Aussies in that series. Just because you don't take wickets doesn't necessary mean you've bowled badly. He caused the AUssies all sorts of problems in the two games he played in Australia.

    I didn't see much of his debut Test, but in the Perth Test he was just about unplayable at times.....

    he troubled ALL the Aussie batsmen with both pace & movement - none moreso than M Waugh whom he cut in half & got inside edges that went for 4 runs.............I credit Bond v M Waugh as being the death knell for Waugh's Test career!!!

    he should have had better figures if the ZIM Ump had been up to his job...........& NZ should have had a Test & series win accordingly.........

    I really hope so........Dizzy only lost about 5 kph so hopefully Bond will still be able to bowl in the mid 140ks like Dizzy..........

    I don't really care if he never gets up near 150 kph again so long as he has better than 140kph pace & can still move the ball in the air & off the deck!!!!

    No matter if it were undeserved!

    the match win in Perth would have been deserved on performance, and that would have given them the series win.......which is a different story altogether....

    NZ may have deserved to win at Perth, but by the same token AUS did not deserve to loose the series - but then again that's cricket & how many time do we see the weather play a role........one way or the other.........

    big thing IMO is that it's a good case for a 'rest' day re weather as we used to have, and also why there should not be any 2 Test series...........too many drawn 2 Test series from no results / rain affected matches can drive the public away and also give an inflated points rating..........

    Absolutely - although NZ deserved to win the Perth test, the Aussies had the better of the rain affected Brisbane and Hobart tests. We only got close in Brisbane because of a sporting declaration by Steve Waugh.

    I think 0-0 was a fair result, with the Aussies the slightly better team.

    Exactly!! NZ certainly didn't deserve to lose the recent series against Pakistan. If there's been a third test I reckon we could have redressed the balance.

    If you don't take wkts and do ave 96+, then it might not mean that you bowled badly, but its enough to tell one as to whether the bowler is the best in the world or not!

    Bond has already stated that he has not lost any pace during his re-modelled action.

    What you have said was a pile of crap.

    And 135-140 isnt medium-fast, still faster than all our bowlers ATM.

    Glenn McGrath is one of the all time greats, and who knows how many wicket's he's created for his team-mates?
    Ahh, that old one.
    "Wickets at the other end" can be perceived only, not that they are needed with an average of 22.
    And please explain how judging a bowler on what he bowls, rather than how he's played, is crazy, something you've never satisfactarily managed.
