Whatever it takes!!!
Gayle will get there alright.
Jono said:No why? I just remember all the Australian batsman bowling during that innings. Found it funny seeing how rare it was that every Australian player except the keeper bowled.
Yeah I remember that test match lol. Boucher bowling and getting a wicket is hilarious, but the difference IMO was that the pitch had a lot to do with that, whereas Hayden and Ponting having to come on to bowl was more to do with Laxman and Dravid's huge and immense partnership.Snippie said:Earlier this year the South Africans did the same thing, except there even the keeper bowled, AB kept whilst Boucher bowled, Boucher took one wicket, AB two.
It was the fourth test match in the series, it had led to a draw, with TONS of runs being scored, all eleven South African players had bowled and eight of the Windies, was quite interesting!

Don't worry Dasa... time to go back to the drawing boards mates.steds said:The truth he speaks, so Ian does.
You clearly know the answer to that. I brought up Ponting just for the fact that he was a batsman that bowled in that Kolkata match, like Hayden, and it was rare to see Ponting bowl. Had nothing to do with the question of this threadmarc71178 said:Is Ponting left handed?
Shotgun the spinner being Mahendra Nagamootoo.chaminda_00 said:If you were picking the best players that fit this description then it would have to be Hadlee by a mile. Anyway here a side i put together of the top of my head, im sure i missed some top players, but whatever.
