    A sobering thought

    Rawl Lewis, who has played four tests in a decade (a career bowling average of nearly 400 may be a good pointer to why this'd be the case), is currently in action in the 2nd test between West Indies & South Africa.

    South Africa are 152/5, in response to West Indies' 243. It is a sobering thought that even if Rawl Lewis (currently 0/12 from 4 overs) took the remaining South African wickets cheaply and ended up with something like 5/40 from 15 overs, his test bowling average would be 71.3 while his strike rate (balls per wicket) would be 141.5. In fact he'd have a 400% improvement on his career wickets tally!

    This is surely one of those instances where the only way possible is up, for his average before the test was 388 while his strike rate was 759!

    You may like to check out my blog about Steve Bucknor already being awarded the man of the match trophy for the Sydney cricket test match. I am hoping to protest not at Steve Bucknor's mistakes (God bless him!) but at our inability to use technology when it is available

    Lewis brought back from the grave... I thought he retired... good heavens... but they had a somewhat decent spinner... some mootoo or something... who may be better than this guy.

    P.S: Why don't you change the settings to allow non-google users to also comment... just a suggestion.

    Scorpicity - Mahendra Nagamootoo. "Better" is a relative word - Nagamootoo got 12 wkts from 5 tests (avg 53, strike rate 124).

    The original settings seem to have been changed by Google to not allow non-Google users to comment. I've changed this now.
