West Indies cricket

Samuel Badree bores batsmen into submission

While his Trinidad and Tobago team-mate Sunil Narine has attracted all the headlines with his funky hair style and mystery deliveries, Samuel Badree too has been taking wickets and not conceding many runs, says Cricketgeek in his blog.

Badree is the master of line and length. He has enough variation that the batsman can't settle down, but enough consistency that if they wait for the bad ball his whole spell might have gone by and they've only had one ball to hit. For a leg-spinner that is exceptional. Narine is someone who you can't take your eyes off. At the end of a Badree over it is hard to remember anything happening. He bores the batsmen into submission. And he does it well.
