Shane Bond finally breaks….

24 12 2009

It seems that the rigours of test cricket have finally caught up with Shane Bond. Again.

I have long been an admirer of Bond’s bowling and the cricket world is poorer to be without it. However a man who has only played 18 tests in about 8 years is clearly the Jonny Wilkinson of world cricket. Without a world cup and a good 4 year run of non injury of course. Even with the small amount the kiwis play this is not a good record.

I wonder how many games they would have won had he been fit. We shall never know. A further 10 years for another truly world class kiwi to emerge then.
