India should consider obtaining the services of Fazal Ansari, triple national javelin champion, to equip themselves to playing a certain fast bowler representing another nation within the sub-continent. Of course, it would be preferable that Mr. Ansari uses a cricket ball as opposed to hurling a pointed spear at the Indian batsmen. I have watched two of the concurrent series (India v Pak and Aus v Sri Lanka) with great interest and cannot but avoid raising this issue of unconventional delivering of the red cherry at batsmen. It not only looks disturbingly ugly but seems unfair to see a tamil speaking sri lankan, a “blonde-wannabe” srilankan, an australian pop star, and now a “spoilt brat” pakistani do everything but demonstrate the beautiful art of bowling.
Their more than just unconventional style of delivery seems to take away the beauty of watching cricket in its purest form, especially, when you get to see some fabulous swing bowling from Zaheer Khan, wonderful leg spin of Danish Kaneria, or almost perfect line and length bowling by Stuart Clark. It just does not seem correct!!
