One-day hat tricks tend to be fun rather than jaw dropping, but it’s still very good to see Andrew Flintoff taking wickets.
For all Flintoff’s good bowling, wickets are too rare and there needs to be more of this. We made two rather obvious conclusions after the big man dismissed Ramdin, Rampaul and Benn last night.
- Andrew Flintoff should bowl at the bloody stumps a bit more often – in all forms of the game.
- For all that shorter balls and even length balls have their place, they often just set the scene and it’s the full ball that gets the wicket. Steve Harmison, take note.
