Great thread aklemalp.

And Zura thats precisely why you need to do with our pacers. Give them a plan, practice, practice, practice, ensure they stick to the plan. And if they are struggling to enforce, go to the boundary and tell them again to stick to the plan like Streak used to.

Today we make fun of Taskin, Rubel etc. But there was once a time when Taskin bowled six yorkers in a row. They were going somewhere with Streak.
