Bond Says It Like It Is

Shane Bond, ex-Black Cap fast bowler and now in the money at the Indian Cricket League’s Delhi Giants, says the decision to go to India is a “no brainer“. Though he will double his income, Bond says the transfer is not only about finances. His first ICL game last month was “full on, with Russian dancers and Bollywood stars wandering around the grounds while the crowds [went] crazy.” But Bond is too candid not to concede that playing for the Delhi Giants will never come close to matching the intense thrill of opening the bowling for New Zealand against Australia. “Test cricket is still the ultimate. Even going to a World Cup doesn’t compare to getting the creams on for a Test because it’s still the best form of cricket to play. That’s why Test cricket will survive. There’s too much tradition and modern Test cricket is still exciting to watch. But 50-over cricket will become redundant – it’s too boring.”
