Being round >> speed, grace and agility when it comes to spin bowlingCricket is an intereting sport when it comes to athleticism... I watched Ashwin running today, he had the speed, grace and agility of a world class darts player. Interesting that the no.1 player in one half of the game can move in such a way.
That's a good point. Most of the current ones look less like athletes and more like unhappily married low-level accountants leading lives of quiet desperation. We've had some shockers in the recent past too from Paul Wiseman to Kaneria to the king of them all in Ramesh Powar. Vettori seems like a rare exception.Why are so many spinners are unfit, ugly and generally unathletic looking people?
Can you imagine how much more ugly Ashwin would be with a bigger forehead? Hire Faf, they should not.Why are so many spinners are unfit, ugly and generally unathletic looking people? It's a blight on the sport. Every time one of my Chinese friends takes a peek at my stream they happen to see Ashwin going about his business and they shake their heads in disbelief at how this bloke is a professional athlete. How can you hope to attract any sort of following to the game like that? The SC teams in particular need to hire Faf as their trainer.
