    The batsman cannot be too good for the bowler

    A lot of people don't realise this.

    Might as well close the thread now as I've imparted my wisdom.

    But what if the bower is a batsman himself?

    Sobers and Kohli come to mind as players of that ilk.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    Cricket is a bowler's game.

    I'd forgotten that this was one of Richard's pet theories.

    All depends on definition of "too good".

    I guess what you're saying is that regardless of how dominant a batsman is over a bowler he can always be dismissed through unlucky circumstances.

    But using that same definition a bowler can't be "too good" for a batsman either, as regardless of how dominant a bowler is, getting the wicket isn't always guaranteed and a batsman can still play and miss, edge to the boundary etc and not be dismissed by that bowler.

    The 6th is the absolute cut off for such a greeting and even then you're pushing it.
    It's now the 12th of April. Absolutely disgusting!!!

    But a good batsman can manipulate the bowler into bowling what he wants him to bowl.

    Does free will really exist for a bowler thus played?
