Wristy elegance

This one is for all fans of Md. Azharuddin. It is a clip featuring the 5 consecutive boundaries that he hit off Klusener (his debut test) at Kolkata in late 96. All the boundaries were hit between mid-on and mid-wicket - third one being the stunningest of all - flick of the wrist and boom.

agreed Pawan - 3rd the classisest - but IMHO, the easiest (of them all) to play.

4th and 5th - i thot - were tougher and more challenging - ball pitchin on/arnd off and at the most towards middle, Azza did extrememly well to whip them (ofcourse well in front of square)...

the 1st 2 - well, more helped by the dead bounce of our tracks...still, no takin away from the genial stroke-maker...WHAT A PLAYER!!!

ps - any videos on his early days' stroke play would be most warmly welcome ;)...am i heard?

ps2 - Google videos, I luv u.

Yeah, I guess the third one was in the slot, even Monty Panesar (sorry Monty) would have hit it for runs.. But the manner in which he hit was stunning for me.. just a swish of the magic wand and it disappeared..

You are definitely heard :) I found this one while searching for material on Azhar's debut tons against England. Couldn't find anything else on him.. and yeah needless to say Google videos rock..
