Every bowler on a cricket ground loves the sight of a batsman being dismissed. When it comes to fast bowlers, the sight of a broken stump or a broken bat is relished as much as anything for it tells about the sheer pace with which the ball was bowled. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that for fast bowlers, ‘The Sound of Timber is a Joy Forever’!
