Relief for sore eyes
One of my favorite players is back...and how! Fiery as ever and with that old control still intact, Shane Bond has come back from an unjust hiatus and world cricket is all the better for it. As I type this he is bowling as if on a different wicket from the rest of the New Zealand bowlers in the semi-finals against Pakistan.
Imran Nazir is still flinching in the dressing room every time he replays in his mind the bouncer he barely fended off to first slip.
