Is there a conspiracy at work in the Ashes tests to not bowl at Simon Katich’s leg stump? He walks across to somewhere near middle stump every ball before the bowler has released the ball. Surely a leg stump Yorker would have him in trouble. Flintoff did for Lara at Old Trafford a few years ago he didn’t get anywhere near as far across. Why wouldn’t they do it? If nothing else it would discomfort him. Currently he plays every ball about two feet outside off-stump. Come on bowlers – try and discomfort him a bit, you are doing exactly what he wants!
