Krejza Can Bat Too!

And boy can he bowl.

That delivery to Amla was a ripper.

Which makes me wonder whether his 12 wickets on debut were a fluke.

But surprised me more than the wicket of Amla was his unbeaten knock of 30.

He was largely responsible for Australia's total of 375 - the last 2 wickets added 72 runs as Krejza shared a 38 run partnership with Johnson and a 34 run one with Siddle.

This guy is great and he's only 25!

Yes I checked out his profile to see if that was his highest first class score but guess what?

He's got 4 first class half centuries and a top score of 65 to boot.

Hell he's got a List A 50 too.

Ausralia may have found a gem!

    He played for NSWales and Tassie as a bowling allrounder, although at test level he is probably a bowler who bats a bit.

    he's the lucky charm oz been missing. all over the place taking catches today - that one off harris was hilarious.

  3. Q said...

    I think he's a find for the Aussies and one of those players who will always do better at the higher level.. i.e. test over first class...

    Bowler who bats a bit right now JRod, later could very well be an allrounder.. or maybe another Greg Matthews?

    NC, lucky charm or find of the year?

    And he only goes at 4.5 an over which is about 0.5 more than the rate Bill Lawry seems to think you should score at on pitches with even bounce and quick outfields.

    Krejza is barely first-class standard as a bowler.

  6. Jrod said...

    DB, barely first class stanadard, and not the worst spinner in the match.

    Q, I don't think he will get to that level, maybe more Kumble or poor mans Vettori level, but that is only if he sticks around.

  7. Q said...

    DB, any spinner who takes a 12-for against India in India and that too on debut is not "first class" standard.. seriously.. and I don't buy the "he got lucky cos they went after him" excuse...

    He definitely has something..

    He showed it with the bat in the 2nd innings as well!

  8. Q said...

    Jrod - Kumble or poor man' Vettori ain't that bad..
