everything about the opposition starts to stutter and maybe that is why batsmen tend to find form when the bowlers are demolishing the opposition Ryan Harris slogs a quick fifty for example Or George Bailey hits an invisible half-century With Johnsonit was always about rhythm You might say that is true of all fast bowling (the great Michael Holding said he bowled at his quickest when he wasn’t trying to) and I often wonder if rhythm comes from a settled mind and a conducive body or whether there are deeper causes But to see Johnson bowl this summer in the IPL was an eye-opener and there is little doubt in my mind that he was the key to the success of the Mumbai Indians By bowling three oversfastat the start he allowed them to bowl Lasith Malinga where they most liked him to bowl; at the death To give credit to Johnson’s renaissance to the IPL would be grossly self-indulgent but sometimes a change of environment just settles the nerves Whatever it wasJohnson has provided us with one of the great sights of 2013 If he can retain that going into 2014 and to South Africawe will have the greatest fast bowler of modern timesDale Steynarrayed against him and that will be an encounter to arouse the most gladiatorial instincts in cricket Will South Africa throw up the kind of surface they did at the Wanderers against India aware that Johnson will be charging in to thump the ball on it Will they back their batsmen to counter him and provide something for Steyn and Morkel It will be a good series but I am not sure the ball will be flying by the batsman’s nose It was an easier decision for South Africa against Indiaaware as they were that there was no one remotely close to Steyn within the opposition And his first spell was cricket of the highest class In doing so he told the world yet againand the opposition in particularthat great teams can only address themselves so if they have incisive bowling attacks India scenario It is something that I suspect India haven’t thought about consistently Or maybeIndia just do not have the know-how to produce fast bowlingIn the last few years the odd bowler has come up; more swing than pace admittedly but capable of delivering in overseas conditions But like the flowers of the eveningthey haven’t been around when the sun rose again RP SinghIrfan PathanMunaf PatelIshant Sharma (now he has been around but you know what I mean)Praveen Kumar and the most gifted of them allSreesanth But they either dropped paceor fitnessor equilibrium and soIndia go on yet another overseas jamboree without an arsenal that can retaliate There is potential in Umesh Yadav and most certainly in Mohd Shami but the mind always puts caution ahead of optimism IndeedPakistan have shown that if you have a strong bowling line-up it can occasionally overcome inconsistent batting But batting can only overcome indifferent bowling in limited overs cricket And even thatnot everyday India will always produce spinnerssome better than others Post Kumble and HarbhajanOjha and Ashwin have got to a hundred wickets as quickly But to win overseasyou need pace; maybe not a tearaway Johnson or a thoroughbred Steynbut at least someone who will cause the opposition to wonder what kind of surface to offer If Johnson stays fityou know what to expect at Perth And beyond For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsNew Delhi: An invitation to a leading Chinese dissident to participate in a conference in Dharamshala next week could develop into another irritant between India and China Dolkun Isa a leader of World Uyghur Congress (WUC) who lives in Germany has been invited to the conference being organised by the US-based ‘Initiatives for China’ Uyghurs and many other Chinese dissidents in exile are expected to attend and discuss democratic transformation in China United Nations Headquarters in New York Reuters China’s unhappiness about reports that Dolkun has been given the visa was reflected in Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying saying "What I want to point out is that Dolkun is a terrorist in red notice of the Interpol and Chinese police Bringing him to justice is due obligation of relevant countries" When asked about the issue External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup today said"We have seen the media reports and External Affairs Ministry is trying to ascertain the facts" India’s decision to permit WUC leaders whom China regards as backers of terrorism in its volatile Muslim-dominated Xinjiang province was reported to be in response to Beijing blocking Indian bid to get Jaish-e-Muhammad chief Masood Azhar banned by the UN Meanwhile Dolkun has been quoted by media as saying that he had already been granted visa by the Indian government for the conference but he would take a final call only after assessing his security in India as China got a Red Corner Notice issued against him by Interpol By: PTI | Mumbai | Updated: February 1 2016 4:34 pm Bombay High Court Related News A woman who has attained motherhood through a surrogacy procedure is entitled to six months maternity leave like any other woman the Bombay High Court has ruled “Having considered rules 551(C) and(E) of Child Adoption Leave and Rules we find that a case is made out for grant of interim relief as there is nothing in these rules which would disentitle maternity leave to a woman who has attained motherhood through surrogacy procedure” a Bench of Justices Anoop Mohta and G S Kulkarni said in their order delivered on January 29 Accordingly the judges granting interim relief asked the Central Railway (CR) to grant 180 days maternity leave to its woman employee who had filed the petition challenging the decision of authorities to reject her leave applicationThe HC while asking the Central Railway to grant petitioner maternity leave posted the matter for disposal on March 11 The HC while asking the Central Railway to grant petitioner maternity leave posted the matter for disposal on March 11 The petitioner had approached the HC after the CR refused to give her maternity leave on the ground that there was no provision in the rules to grant such leave in case of surrogacy mothersThe petitioner got married in 2004 and for a long The petitioner got married in 2004 and for a long time she could not conceive a child Hence she decided to go in for the surrogacy procedure Accordingly an agreement was signed with a surrogate motherWhen the surrogate mother completed 33 weeks of pregnancy the petitioner applied for maternity leave but her application was rejected by the CR Being aggrieved she moved the High Court When the surrogate mother completed 33 weeks of pregnancy the petitioner applied for maternity leave but her application was rejected by the CR Being aggrieved she moved the High Court?000.com For all the latest Mumbai News.
