Joel Garner breathes more fire on the Rabbit.

West Indies pace attack is a pale shadow.

Does anybody remember when England were rubbish at cricket and the West Indies used to pulverise our top order batsmen?

Like rabbits in the headlights they were run over one by one and the soft underbelly was ripped to shreds by Joel Garner, Malcolm Marshall and "whispering Death" Michael Holding.

"Whispering Death"?

 

 

Joel Garner breathes more fire on the Rabbit.

West Indies pace attack is a pale shadow.

Does anybody remember when England were rubbish at cricket and the West Indies used to pulverise our top order batsmen?

Like rabbits in the headlights they were run over one by one and the soft underbelly was ripped to shreds by Joel Garner, Malcolm Marshall and "whispering Death" Michael Holding.

"Whispering Death"?

The umpires nicknamed him that because of the quiet way that he approached the crease at top speed. Here was a true assassin at work.

That trio backed up by Andy Roberts was the most fearsome pace bowling attack ever to play the game. There was no respite; one truly quick pace bowler would be rested only to be replaced by another one. It was a relentless attack and needed both physical and mental strength to face up to it.

Geoff Boycott must be bemoaning the day. He faced what was later to be called Joel Garner's greatest ever over when the giant 6'8" paceman roughed up Boycs before clean bowling him with the last delivery of the over.

Boycott was however the most successful English batsman against this feared pace attack and showed incredible bravery against it.

What must Garner, Holding and co make of this current West Indian team? There are some determined batsmen and Chanderpaul is clearly the pick of the bunch but the pace attack has no back up and the spinners are not good enough to threaten for long enough.

By contrast this England team is really very good. With Strauss and Cook filling the top two slots you have two high class batsmen backed up by Trot and Pietersen who still manages to flatter to deceive even when he is scoring heavily.

The batting is strong and in depth with only the number eleven Anderson looking a weak link but even he has improved his batting out of all recognition and his slip catching is excellent.

With Broad and Anderson backed up by Bresnan there is a very strong pace attack and of course with Swann to add into the mix the bowling options are top class.

It is not going to take England long today to wrap up a series win and it is going to be fantastic summer of cricket when the South Africans come to town.
