Is it just me, or do cricket broadcasts now rarely show a bowler’s run-up? I seem to recall, in bygone days, watching the slow-motion shot of a fast bowler (from front and side) approaching the crease and finishing his follow-through. It was always a lovely thing to see, because bowling is such an unnatural thing to do (and even more unnatural to do well). It was also educational — commentators usually pointed out problems in a run-up, or after a delivery, that needed to be changed. (On that note, has anyone else noticed how Ishant Sharma seems to do a mini-stumble after he bowls? Or is this just me?)
Anyway, cricket broadcast world, bring this feature back. Maybe even play it during those strategy time-outs? Just a thought.
