  • Usain Bolt the cricketer....

    This is a funny story!

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket ... ational/we st_indies/8313778.stm

    'After winning the toss and electing to bat first against Kingston and St Andrew All-Stars XI, Bolt made 13 from 10 deliveries, an innings that included a straight maximum off compatriot Gayle's off-spin, before he was run out. However, the triple Olympic champion made more of an impact with the ball, bowling off a long run up and at good pace, greeting big-hitting Gayle's arrival at the crease with a bouncer from his first delivery. "I told Chris to watch out I was going to give him one but he didn't really believe it," said Bolt, who cites Pakistan fast bowler Waqar Younis as his childhood hero. And the 23-year-old brought the crowd to their feet when he castled Gayle's stumps, signalling the direction of the pavilion to his friend for good measure.'

      Dod he coast, arms aloft, before the crease?

      With his Bolt arms, I bet.

        Very roughly, Bolt hit a home run but then struck out; he also pitched and gave the opponent a high hard one he couldn't handle.

        That's not a translation, just a vague equivalence.

            Despite the usual hoopla and high-jinks, he can obviously play.

              Indeed, his stance, timing and confidence appears better than some international -level tailenders have shown in years gone by (translation: a tailender is a specialist bowler ('pitcher') when batting (not typically their strength). And his bowling looks pretty solid...

                He looked much better bowling, even getting Chris Gayle's wicket. Needs to move his feet more like he did for the "no". I think he is getting carried away, because in a related interview he did say he can get the better of Walsh...in his dreams I say...

                  Courtney Walsh, I presume? Yea, right. Bolt should simmer down a bit.
