After a couple of black and white photos, I think it was imperative that I added a dash of color with photos of one of the most colorful characters of the game.
The wonder that was the Frog in the blender.
Who needs a long career to keep people talking about when you have an action so unique. Every time a conversation veers about bowling actions in cricket, it's inevitable that his name would crop up. Paul 'Gogga' Adams is one of the many gifts Cricket has provided to its lovers, one that we have Eddie Barlow to thank for. Adams made his debut for the Proteas as a teenager before he was forced to retire from action at 30 with more than 150 international scalps in his kitty. Meanwhile, 45 Tests is no mean feat for a Proteas spinner, where we are all know well how pace rules the roost. Add to that a laidback attitude that made even sledging opponents burst into laughter and one would understand the value of Adams for the game.
About his unique action, he said “People think I can’t see the batsman when I bowl, but I can. When I drop my head, I can still see him in my mind’s eye. It comes from practice. It is not just luck.” #cricket #australia #newzealandcricket #icc #WorldCup2019 #msdhoni #viratkohli #abdevilliers #dalesteyn #cricketworldcup #ICCWorldCup2019 #lords #sachin #ipl #indiancricketteam #bcci #pcb #proteasfire #ODI #T20 #T20I
