    Shane Bond close to comeback

    I read in the paper this morning that there is a chance Bond could play in the tests against South Africa...apparently he bowled in the nets at Dunedin & felt good so here's hoping.

    Well its a good news because he's an exciting bowlers who can win matches on his own, not many match winning pacers are there currently in world today.

    Interestingly in 70's and 80'ds there used to be atleast 4 match winning pacers in just WI team:O

    Tuffey, Bond, Cairns, Oram, Vettori and Styris.

    Not too bad may I say.

    I wonder what his "new" action will look like and whether he'll be considerably slower or not...

    No single bowler can win a match on his own. Nor a batsman.
    Bond has yet to show he has anything really in comparison to the like of Holding, Garner, Roberts and Malcolm. The fact that people are comparing him to them after, in essence, one meaningful good series is quite beyond belief.

    they had like 6-7 match winning bowlers...some of them didnt get the opportunity to play for their national side because the top 4 were just that bit better

    I think you will find that NZ cricket do not bring him back in the tests. He has just started bowling in the nets. Still not even bowling at 80%. And bringing him back so quick into a test(which he would need to take hevey workload) is just stupid. NZ cricket do hhave more sence than that.

    I don't know much about the domestic scene in new zealand but i think it will be beeter for both bond and nz team if they wait till he regains full fitness.

    tamara, u said that he is not going to be as fast anymore that sucks. i have not seen much of him and i was hoping that i could see what he does. he was devastating in the world cup (only time i seen him)

    yea i reckon he really should be rested till the england tour.. were he would be a lot more fitter.. its not helpfull gettin him straight into the tests adding pressure on the man when he might not even be 80% fully ready..

    anyway i hope for the best and really would like to see him back..anytime!
