May 11, 2021

Cricket has brought many Fast Bowlers like Curtly Ambrose, Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram, Glenn McGrath etc. who have dominated the bowlers by their bowling.

But there are many bowlers who were headache for batsmans but fitness and injuries not allowed them to play big and make their carrier successful.
Here are 5 Bowlers whose career was shortened due to injuries but were greatly talented:-

Shane Bond

He made his test & ODI debuts in 2001 & 2002 respectively vs Australia. He was a very good bowler, probably the best bowler from New Zealand after Sir Richard Hadlee. In one of the matches against India, he recorded a speed of 156.4 kmph which proves that he was really quick at his peak.
Shane Bond has 87 Test Wickets in 32 Innings, 147 Wickets in ODIs.
