Fred trueman run-up is short and bowling action is front-on slingshot. Fitness and enthusiasm of fred trueman is way too high. More than 2000 first-class wickets(no one days). In modern day, bowlers won't even take 450 wickets in first-class matches. The rotation of the bowling arm seems way too quick even of harold larwood. Instead richard hadlee's bowling is very amusing. I think richard hadlee is shelved in cricket. I haven't seen not even a single match of richard hadlee on tv! I mean even joel garner matches are shown on tv sometimes and even of waqar younis, malcolm marshal, devon malcolm, denise lillee...etc. But richard hadlee big career is hardly mentioned. It seems was a time when new zealand cricket of 1970s lacked even medium pacers. Most seamers were like clooney circus and fragle rock hairdo. Richard hadlee then perhaps played kerry packers new zealand team in cool light brown black trousers. I tried to study richard hadlee bowling action in youtube and still can't figure it out. Very simple run-up and a complex side-on bowling action. Wicket to wicket impact bowling. Many batsmen as i had seen in youtube became confused playing blinders against quick speed of richard hadlee. Even australian bret lee nor the present day new zealand bowlers can bowl such bowling. Funny that bowling skills differ from player to player in cricket and not just bowling quick like west indies. I think in 1994 many indian newcomers had trained in new zealand fast bowling schools and denise lillee pace academy. Indian bowlers wanted to make impact in modern cricket, but did not succeded. Though the modern new zealanders were improvised bowlers like d.morrison, d.nash, s.doull, s.o'connor! Chris cairns medium fast bowling action is similar like richard hadlee but line-length not exactly.
