But Fidel, due to his action can get reverese swing which is useful in Asian conditions. That action also makes bouncers and yorkers more deceptive. Edwards had a lot of success last year with his short ball and I think it was due to the batsman not being able to pick the length early enough.

Roach on the other hand doesn't seem to have much swing and perhaps relies on seam movement. I think he was just off form when we played last year. He was bowling all over the place. Roach is defintely the better bowler, but Fidel on his day can wreck the best lineups.
