Profile of Shane Bond

They have good part-time spinners in Yuvraj and Sehwag. But India still need a quality quick bowler who can also be a genuine batsman at the number six spot.
They could not kick on from 150 for one in 20-odd overs. The rest was the offshoot of this malady.
It is an area where we would like to stomp our feet and test if the ground is still soft underneath.
We were not down in the dressing room after the defeat. We knew the factors which we were up against on the day. It's Tuesday when all will count.
Their fast bowlers have done exceptionally well as a unit and it is something similar to what's happening to us in New Zealand. I have a feeling whoever bowls better and tighter, would hold the edge.
