GetSporty: Indian cricket team's new Nemesis- Stuart Broad

Indian cricket fans better watch out ! There is a star in the making and he is not from India. Worst of all, he is a fast bowler- a breed which has historically given all our batsmen the hibbies jibbies. Ganguly dada might go into a bout of hysterical roshgulla eating binge when he thinks of Greg Chappel, to alleviate tension, but let me tell you, nothing can stop him from sobbing uncontrollably, when he thinks of all the fast bowlers he has faced and how they have tormented him : ). Forget Ganguly, is Tendulkar as confident a batsman, facing genuine quickies, as he is facing medium pacers and spinners? Be honest.

The truth is fast bowlers reduce our brave men with their batting machines to mush.

Our new Nemesis is called Stuart Broad. Continuing Cricket's glorious tradition of Father-Son stars, he is former England Cricket batsman Chris Broad's son. Chris was no lightweight himself, having won the 'Man of the Series' during the Ashes tour of 1986/87, when England won. Check Chris Broad's blog here for posts on the recent India- Sri Lanka- South Africa tri-series wash out controversy, where he was present on the spot. No wonder with such illustrious genes, Stuart has grown to be the man he is today and how! At 20, the strapping young lad, playing county for Leicestershire, is already 6 ft 7" and "growing" according to sports doctors who say, that he could grow 2-3 " more! The co-relation between fast bowler's effectiveness and height is positive to the extreme and this means that Stuart is going to prove even more lethal, than he is right now.

Lethal did you say? Stuart bowls at a nifty 84 mph, consistently, and that doesn't mean he can’t bowl faster. Just that he chooses to keep his line and length spot on and is already being compared to the likes of Glen Mcgrath! He is currently the most economical bowler in the Twenty20 Cup; in his six matches this season, 10 wickets have cost just 10.30 runs while conceding just 4.29 runs-per-over!

So fast, furious, miserly and lethal! Bring it on Stuart...see you in Mumbai against India, at the Wankhede, soon!
