Richard Hadlee: Bowling attack in the World Cup 2015 is New Zealand’s best ever: The New Zealand Cricket team is on a roll with multiple wins, they are the co-hosts at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Brendon McCullum’s team came into the World Cup 2015 on the back of some very strong performances, beating different opponents with conviction and belief. Confidence and consistency is something which their teams in the past have lacked. This is where the difference lies, and all together every cricket pundit is ready to bet their money on New Zealand being among the few teams to top the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
One of the most outright speaker and with a beautiful insight of the game Sir Richard Hadlee watching the way the New Zealand team has performed in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 has gone on to call this the best bowling attack that the Black Caps have ever possessed.
Hadlee who is the first player in the history of test cricket to reach 400 wickets is present in Auckland to witness one of the biggest clashes of the tournament when heavy weights and hosts New Zealand are challenged by Australia in their battle for an upper edge over the other before the all important knock out stage.
Sir Richard Hadlee said, “It’s our best ever new-ball combination, “They’re wicket-taking bowlers and they’ve proved that successfully, particularly over the last 12 months.”
Praising the team for being young, with lot of energy, enthusiasm and years of cricket ahead of them. Hadlee said, “They’ve come of age, they’re at the top of their game and they’re young and going to be around for a long time.”
When someone as great as Richard calls you the best new ball combination you are ought to take notice. The man himself has played 86 test for New Zealand in which he has picked 431 wickets at an average of 22.29, he also featured in 115 ODIs and has 158 wickets to his name in the shorter format of the game.
