The over shown in the free streaming cricket video is often billed as the fastest ever over bowled in the history of test match cricket. Don’t know what Jeff Thomson, Frank Tyson, Harold Larwood and Waqar Younis will have to say to that, but since it’s West Indies Michael Holding in the thick of it all, doubt if anyone will complain.
England’s opening batsman Geoffrey Boycott faces up to West Indies Michael Holding as he bowls a furious first over. He eventually gets Boycott out off the last ball of the over but more than anything else, watch this cricket clip and marvel at the most aesthetic sights in cricket. Michael Holding’s run up and bowling action. Holding was called Whispering Death by his contemporaries because you could hardly hear him running up to bowl. Soft, silken and terrifying – that almost sounds like the Grim Reaper.
