Jason Krejza’s bowling figures

Not the first to test the reslience of the boundary boardsThere’s a fine tradition of Indian batsmen being introduced to opposing spinners, shaking their hand before punching said spinner squarely in the face without warning. And then doing it again. And again. This usually happens before the spinner even appears in a Test.

Sachin Tendulkar instantly decided that Shane Warne was going to go and in a warm-up match the leg-spinner went for 111 runs in just 16 overs. Before that, Navjot Sidhu systematically dismantled John Emburey’s confidence with a barrage of sixes.

Jason Krejza hasn’t really got a reputation worth savaging, but the Indian Board President’s XI have set about his bowling with contempt anyway. Krejza took 0-123 off 20 overs in the first innings of the tour match and in the second Yuvraj Singh set about him to give him figures of 0-76 off 11 overs.

Whether we were intending on adopting Krejza or not is looking moot at present.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. The Aussies have clearly got problems with their spinners. At the moment, the only way Krejza looks like taking wickets is if he bowls in an Ajantha Mendis mask.

  2. Krejza’s a fantastic name for the Scrabble Board when you play a cricketers’ names version of the game.

    Like you do.
