Balls - On the low-hanging ones

Somehow today's talk revolves around balls.

It was Ishant Sharma who started it all off. He was quoted as saying that in Twenty20 it is important to have 'slower balls'.

Which leaves us pondering whether he was quoting from the Kama Sutra.

However, another quote from England made me understand why events in English cricket are described in hyperbole. For example, recently Collingwood was saying that English cricketers have to play brave cricket. He was followed by KP who said the England team had no fear.

Well, the secret is now out. These gutsy talks can be traced back to their preference for "soft balls".

Find the evidence for their penchant below.

"Health and safety fears, the sale of playing fields, teachers unwilling to supervise and less competitive sport in schools have been blamed for the decline in the use of the hard ball."
