Here is how you bowl a bouncer
A little high-quality cricket moment in an IPL game. The two bouncers that Jacques Kallis bowled at Damien Martyn off the last two balls of the sixth over of the Rajasthan Royals' innings today were lessons in how to bowl a good bouncer: they were quick deliveries, pitched on an awkward length just short of a good one, and they headed straight for Martyn's head. The length, the pace, the direction (often ignored but still very important) were all bang on. Not too short, not at a friendly pace.
Kallis must be the most under-rated Genuinely Great Cricketer[tm] of all time. It kills me to think that a #3 batsman with a bowling and fielding record like his is still routinely dissed. (And aspiring quicks take note: he ambles up and lets rip 140K deliveries!).
