Like the cricketeers of the past, there used to be a lot of fan following for cricketeers of various countries like pakistan, australia, west indies etc. Nowdays it seems that the fans don't like their cricketeers and neither their playing ways!!??? Like for eg. after glenn mcgrath even australian bowlers don't seem australian cricketeers!

Perhaps IPL cricket competitions were organised coz cricket seemed very boring for some audiences, even ODIs! I think IPL sucks!

The other funnier aspect of fast bowling is that fast bowlers never use or are not allowed to rotate their shoulders quicker in international cricket! Perhaps that makes them more prone to chucking allegations and even inaccurate bounce. The fast bowlers then tend to bowl with a athletic run-up, a decent arm rotation and a loft release from their wrists towards the good-length position! Then the pitch takes over and moves, bounces, swings the ball towards the stumps! Many such bowlers use this technique like classic example is west indian malcolm marshall, short run-up, slow bowling action, loft release and speeding through the air! Even australian glenn mcgrath used this technique!
