MacLean, a former Inco employee who worked in Sudbury, developed drawpoint obstruction clearance machines for block caving rigs, including blockhole
jumbos in the late 1970s.
But even that ploy might have yielded results, had they managed to find the blockhole
with acceptable regularity.
Then, when I bowled it into the blockhole
he drove it for another boundary.
On the slow Premadasa track, one would expect Lasith Malinga to bowl blockhole
deliveries more often as length balls are likely to get punished.
Lancashire must have felt they would get him every ball but were growing restless until Mahmood finally located the blockhole
I dragged the next delivery down and instead of bowling yorkers into the blockhole
for the remaining deliveries as I tried to fire the ball in at the batsman, the deliveries ended up being quick and became length deliveries, which was what Hussey was hoping for.
He is an attacking spin bowler, who doesn't simply put the ball in the blockhole
to stop runs being scored.
