You win this time, Naeem Islam!It’s a great era for run-ups. As well as Friedel de Wet’s bunny-hop, we also have Naeem Islam’s high-step.

Just as he’s about to enter his delivery stride, his right leg suddenly tries to knee him in the face. It’s ace.

We can only assume that Naeem Islam learnt to bowl on a pitch inhabited by a mole who would leap from the ground from that exact point and always at that exact moment. Naeem Islam would thus have developed the high-step as a means of bypassing the mischievous subterranean mammal.
