An anonymous once said – Batting is tougher to master but easier to do once you master. Bowling is easier to master but tougher to do once you master. Going by this expression, it’s the fact that, the masters of the balls (pun not intended), definitely require humongous efforts and dedication to keep bowling seamlessly for years. Especially the fast bowlers, who have to take double the efforts, its an incredibly tough job.
If one checks Brett Lee’s career record, it’s astounding to know that in the entire span (including test, one day and first class cricket) he has bowled a total number of 65384 balls. Unbelievable!! This kind of performance definitely requires a different level of madness altogether. And it’s always a wonder to understand what keeps these miracle men going on irrespective of the nerve-wracking physical demands of the game.
