Some days back a pakistani medium fast bowler debuted. His name is a.cheema. His technique of attacking the batsman is that he bowled some deliveries on to zimbabwe tailender batsman knee pads, to make him uncertain in the mind. Then a bouncer towards the neck, which made him to go on backfoot, and then a short quick to finally bowled the batsman. The most successfull bowlers whom you say dominated world cricket in modern day used the same technique of bowling raw pace. Like glenn mcgrath, wasim akram, shoiab akhtar...etc bowled at the knee pads. Like many times when sachin tendulkar playing against such misses the defence. And the ball hits the left leg pad and the impact makes the pad to wobble. Even a large sound comes of the impact. Wasim akram bowling in test matches to sri lankan batsmen. Such times are really painfull in cricket from the batsmen minds' point of view. (but then skeptics might say how will then bowlers would get expert batmen out) Cracked helmets. Many bowlers deliberately bowl such leg side line length and the smart batsmen are those who can flick, leg glance such quick bowling towards the fence blindly pre-meditated! The funniest flickers in cricket are english batsmen!

The great cricket commentator icon and enthusiast henry blofeld(i had myself read in news that henry blofeld had died) reckoned only two players as fastest bowlers in modern cricket and not others. They were curtly ambrose and waqar younis. I had seen curtly ambrose bowling video of 1986, when he had debuted his bowling action was similar like reon king. So curtly ambrose and waqar younis are lethal bowlers who look like bowling medium pacers. But when the odd ball nips back short to the leg pad it creates an energy jolt. So many batsmen avoid the yorkers on their feets. Also i like the ball flight of curtly ambrose delivery after pitching it travels a far distance towards the long positioned wicket keeper, even the edges to the slips are funny. I had seen dwayne bravo bowl on tv, just a medium quick short heighted bowler but the ball bounces and travels with power to the wicket keeper. When i try bowling such, i do bowl quick pace but after pitching the ball dies down and reaches the wicket keeper after two bounce. Another thing is that curtly ambrose and waqar younis though are fastest bowlers they have this athletic added advantage that sometimes even their medium pace bowling are wicket taking! Many batsmen like graeme hick, ian healy, moin khan, shane warne etc have been scapegoats amusing baffled playing against waqar younis and curtly ambrose(even against courtney walsh). Curtly ambrose best performances were mainly on australian pace and bounce pitches of australia. But on the other hand, waqar younis had hard times bowling on australian wickets. No swing, quick pace but odd dud ball going to the wicket keeper and fence. Many times i have seen that while playing a stroke square for four the australian bat gets jolt vibrations off the 140kmph waqar younis bowling. I imagined myself as bowling at waca, perth; and it was very stressfull, nauseating to maintain speed. So for their delightful cricket performances, curtly ambrose and waqar younis are awarded with prestigious Roman Gladiator Sport Award.

And last but not the least, a special award for gentlemanly aggressive bowling fast, no leg side bowling; goes to allan donald. When in rome, do as the romans do; doesn't mean that gladiators went on hitting one another. But its like bruce lee's Enter the Dragon.

I read about denise lillee in espncricinfo it says that he copied his bowling from west indies spin quick lance gibbs, or might be wesley hall or maybe griffith or even boyce. In the best bowling videos denise lillee is havok guy. But i feel that his techniques as he had described never works for many fast medium bowlers who came after him! So for standard bowling cricket skills one should see bowlers like angus fraser or maybe andrew caddick.

I still remember in 1996, when i used to return home from school and hurry on to watch the england vs pakistan test series. The crowd used to cheer when mhd.akram was bowling quick pace. Then on the pacy lord's pitch ata-ur-rehman was producing awesome length bowling which the wicket-keeper used to catch above height. Then waqar younis was bowling medium pacer quick bowling wicket taking. It seemed that other fast bowlers when they bowl the ball continues with the bowling action movement towards the batsmen. But waqar younis and ata-ur-rehman seems like when they bowled in that series they have the ability to create a time-lapse after the ball being bowled reaches the mid-pitch and then it hurries to beat the batsmen. The stop-gap creates hesitancy in the batsmen mind! So this test series was a big effort for creating a memorable match between england and pakistan, so sometimes matches are made and sometimes they are itself memorable. And cricket is a scientific occult game. The run-up of waqar younis in the australian test series is like a machine krank shaft system tuned to produce sound shhhhh fuf fuf fuf like a shia shafavid. And the whack touch of mark waugh making a wood sound twhink. Also the sky darkening for reverse swing. So after remembering ata-ur-rehman's bowling i am still unsure is the bowling bowled with light weight ball or a heavy ball? If its a heavy ball how is it possible that everyball bowled has a good bounce off wicket?! Or if it were light ball then why did the batsmen wear protective gear! The pakistani batsmen i think always play strokes away bat by standing away from the wicket while indian batsmen cover the leg stump.
