To be fair it is NOT as bad as it looks.
Piers doesn’t cover himself in glory but he did ‘OK’ … I say, laughingly.
A bit dramatic, all that ducking and falling over.
OK. It says that Brett Lee is hurling them down at 90 mph. That is distinctly quick.
I don’t think I have ever faced 90 mph, but I know I have faced and scored off bowling in the high 70s.
Piers is padded to the gills and is wearing an helmet — something I refused to do, and helmets were NOT popular when I was playing cricket. I have been hit on the head a number of times with a cricket ball which, of course, explains why I am so strange.
To me this video illustrates one and just one point. Cricket is for real men and I do include Piers in that. Cricket is a contact sport. Bowlers do aim (in every sense of the word) to maim.
Watch and be amazed.
