Where’s the swing gone?
Irfan Pathan lost his swing around the time when Greg Chappell was trying to bring out the batsman in him. That was more than an year ago.
I haven’t seen the banana swing after that and hence Pathan, who was a prodigy all set to take up the role of the leading all-rounder, is now just another player. Well, as good as one at least.
Conditions in NZ are best suited for swing bowling. I hope Pathan gets back his mojo and rattles the Kiwis.
