The Heads and Tails of Daniel Vettori-Once in a Generation Bowler

Posted by seshdotcom on April 11, 2008

The Audacious VettoriWho is this Guy Daniel!!!:Daniel Vettori one of the greatest left arm Spinners of all time has made an Huge impingement in the recent ICC Rankings which took him and limned him to the World as one of the Greatest ODI Bowler of all time.Apart from his Bowling his Batting is also remarkable he has made some Memorable knocks in the other Part of the Coin which has taken his batting average nearly to 28.He has also got two test centuries to his name and he is also the youngest player to represent New Zealand in Test Cricket.

The Golden arm: You cannot hit Daniel Straight down the ground or Out of the Park whenever You like he is not a Sort of Buffet Bowler to hit Mercilessly he is a versatile bowler who doesn’t spin the ball much like Warne or Murali but the variation in flight has got many batsman baloon the ball in the air,Stumped,Caught and Bowled due to leading edge and Clean bowled.He is a Subtle bowler who likes to bowl in Slog overs where the batsman will be hitting the ball as if possessed by a berserk.

Daniel took the captaincy from the Legend Stephen Fleming in the T20 World cup in South Africa and till then he has done some decent work with respect to captaincy winning some crunch matches such as the T20 World cup match against India

The Bludgeoning Arm:

Coming to his batting he is a useful batsman down the order who can make some Surprise knock at important times one knock which i can say Unforgettable is the one he played in Champions Trophy against Australia he came seven down and scored 83 but that eventually took New Zealand out of a Abject Display and posted a decent score but New Zealand lost the Semi Final.And he has also two test centuries to his name one against Pakistan and another one against Zimbabwe and he had less conversion rate from 50-100 he has got numerous fifties in his Test Career.

And arguably he is one of the Top cricketers in that elite panel now so there is nothing wrong in calling Daniel as a Once in a Generation Bowler

Tufnell-The Unsung Paladin

Posted by seshdotcom on March 20, 2008

173351.jpgOnly a few know about phil tufnell of England but his Slow left arm has bamboozled many of the greats of the game.Made his debut in a hard Battlefield Melbourne which harldy favoured him he went Wicketless in both his first and Second Innings.During that time English were led by Graham Gooch .And before his first encounter with Australia Tufnell walked away with some girls the previous night to auberge and was fined 500$ for lethargy and Slackness.And Tufnell in his first match was called by a disparaging term POMMIE CONTINUE YOUR WORK by Umpire Mcconnel- After he asked how many deliveries were left in the Over.After that Tufnell was turned down a appeal against David Boon for which he told Umpire Mcconnel You f****** bastard.These were Just Part and parcel of the Game-Tufnell is a far more good Player than what he was in his debut he devoloped his arm ball and used it to good effect in all his Other Ashes Matches the Same season and got about some 5 Bat Pad Dismissals..One day career wasn’t a great one for Tufnell he played some 20 matches and was able to scalp only a handful of victims.Although his last one was a Match winning performance against New Zealand where he took his career best figures of 4/22
