“I still hadn’t really thought about what ball to bowl. I am still not clear when I go to the top of my run-up. At some point, before I get to the umpire, I decide I am going to bowl that dipper,” he added.
“Too many, man, to choose one ball as favourite. That Yuvraj ball did change my life,” concluded Dwayne Bravo.
