The Cop With An Anthem

The name itself has a ring which is hard to miss. Bond. Shane Bond. If James the spy, had a licence to kill, this one, Shane the policeman-turned-paceman, armed with a cricket ball, seems to have obtained a licence to instill fear in opposing batsmen. Not too long ago when he was policing the streets, cricket, despite being a major passion, was far from his mind.

A fearsome bowler he may be, but having dealt with dead bodies and victims of crime, there is a sensitive side to him. But that is one side of his personality he does not let the batsmen see.
