Aslam Buster # 88: New record for Brett Lee?

Aslam,

In odo 2254 (AvBD), B Lee, let me repeat that name again in case anyone missed
it, especially those who posted in reams when Kaspa had an expensive over. Where
was I? Oh yes. When BRETT LEE went for TWENTY in one over v the might of the
Bangs last night this represented 14.4% of the Bangs innings total. My question
is; Was this over of BRETT LEE's (which went for TWENTY) the highest percentage
of an innings total for a single over in innings which were of >= 100?

Here's the detail of the *BRETT LEE* OVER WHICH WENT FOR *TWENTY* AGAINST
BANGLADESH.

10.1 Lee to Mohammad Ashraful, no run, good length ball, Ashraful on the
front foot defends to the cover fielder.
10.2 Lee to Mohammad Ashraful, SIX, short ball, Ashraful goes for a
pull, ball takes the top edge all the way over the fine leg fence.
10.3 Lee to Mohammad Ashraful, (noball) no run, full length ball,
Asharaful drives straight to Gillespie at mid-off, caught of a
noball.
10.3 Lee to Mohammad Ashraful, wide: no run
10.3 Lee to Mohammad Ashraful, SIX, short again, Ashraful pulls, once
again ball takes the top edge over the fine leg fence.
10.4 Lee to Mohammad Ashraful, no run, defended of the backfoot to the
off side.
10.5 Lee to Mohammad Ashraful, two runs, short ball, Ashraful pulls this
time past the mid-on for a couple of runs. We are seeing an
attacking Ashraful.
10.6 Lee to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, short ball, Ashraful pulls this
time to the deep square leg fence.

The difference being, Kaspa's over essentially lost Australia the game
whereas Lee's over didn't. While I'm not much of a Brett Lee sympathiser
though he can pull a decent spell out of his buttocks from time to time,
12 of those runs came from top edges for 6, and sadly a catch of a no-
ball, Kaspa was bowling pies down leg side.

Cheers,
Rod.

And here's me thinking that 20 runs off over number X is the same as 20 runs off
over Y. Live and learn.

20 off the first over is more significant than 20 scored in the last over
when 100 is needed

Re: Aslam Buster # 88: New record for Brett Lee?


In the 1979 World Cup, Canada scored 105 allout against Australia. That
included Glenn Sealy hitting Rodney Hogg for four fours in an over. So
even if Hogg did not concede another run (don't know if he did), we
have something better than Lee.

Not when over # X's runs had no (negative) bearing on the result and
over # Y's runs went a long way in Aus losing the game. It's all in the
context.

Yet the first scorebook shows a loss and the second scorebook
shows a win. Go figure.

I figure that, according to you, it's only the overs at the end of an innings
which *really* count. Obvious really when you come to not think about it.

And to be quite fair, neither McGrath or Gillespie did a real lot on that
wicket. It seemed to suit the slower bowlers. Or something.

No, it's overs that affect the outcome of a game. Kaspa's did, Lee's
didn't. But thanks for playing.

Your reasoning & explanations are as sound in hindsight as they are in foresight.

Here's a fact you should consider before you ruin that barrell.
Lee went for 20 in an over and all the blither in the world won't change that.

And I suppose you just forgot to mention that both the 6s were extremely

Sure did Ian. (These PVR's are terrific).
It's you lot that've missed something.
This being that the ratio of noise generated by a Kaspa big over to that of a GB
big over is about the same as that between my right and wrong footy tips this
weekend. (1:6. Joy.)

Oh and btw, on those two "extremely lucky" sixes. Remind me again how many
fielders are allowed outside the circle for the 11th over.

Ian you just dont realise the pain that Al has been going through the last
week or so. All this talk about Bing been the saviour of the Australian side
in both ODI's and Tests would have send Al bonkers. Then it all got worse
for the poor fellow as Bing was super against the poms . Now add the
commentators going ga ga about Lee's performanace you have poor little Al
reaching for the razors but much to our dissappointment he resisted urge.

Zimbo bowled out for 38 odd, would only require an over conceding 6.

Bottom line is that Lee is actually a pretty good odo bowler, but not
so great at Tests.

Kaspa is a shite odo bowler, as has been shown on a number of
occasions. Of course, Alvey sees it as an anti-qld conspiracy when
Kaspa isn't considered the No.1 pick odo bowler in Australia.

If we're comparing it to Kaspa's 20/20 return of 8 overs, no maidens,
no wickets for 89 runs, why make it #88.

Wrong answer.

You're meant to say the bottom line is that Australia is Number 1 in
both ODI and Tests.

Will he is "terrible" in English conditions with 14 wickets from 3 matches
at an average of 22.14 with a match wiining best of 7/36 in the final match
of the 1997 tour. I'll be sticking with Kasper in tests until he gives me
a reason to choose someone else as opposed to someone trying to force him
out.

Should mention that Brett Lee's only tour of england was 5 matches for nine
wickets at an average of 55. Not much chop.
