Low key fast bowling triumphs No.1 | James Anderson

Ryan McLaren plays an immaculate cover drive for four. James Anderson bounces him with the next ball and the one after that. McLaren ducks them both.

Will it be three in a row? Yes, it will. This time McLaren attempts a hook, but misses and the ball strikes him on the front of the helmet, right in the middle.

The damage: McLaren’s contact lens has moved and the physio has to poke around in his eye to get it back in place. 0.1 of a point to James Anderson. The South African batsmen quake in their boots at the potential for temporarily impaired vision.

8 Appeals

  1. Is Low Key one of Rob Key’s lesser-known relatives, KC? Like, his little brother or something?

    Top piece on Cricinfo, btw, “the art of being unreadable” or whatever it’s called.

  2. While we are pimping the King’s Other Stuff can I sing the praises of http://www.cricinfo.com/page2/content/story/442780.html
    which contains the utter fabulous phrase about Nathan Hauritz “While it’s a bit offputting for batsmen that his face occupies so little of his head….”

    For the record, we’re very pleased that at least two of you are paying attention.

  4. A load of your articles were plastered over my facebook profile as various mates passed them round. Clogged my facebook up proper it did!

    Are our articles the new Panini football stickers or something?

    It’s always faintly surprising to find that people actually read this stuff and we’re not even joking when we say that.

  6. Three people liked it and one person commented ‘Good article but no need for the childish jibes’

    Was that about the finger spinner one? If it was about the comment about Hauritz’s tiny face, it just goes to show that you can’t please everyone.

  8. It was indeed KC.

    My response of ‘but he so does, innit!’ was ignored.
