(Video) On Javagal Srinath’s birthday, marvel at his nefarious outswinger

Former Indian paceman Javagal Srinath was a banker of a bowler. His velocity and smarts heralded a new dawn for India’s attack, and by the time he retired Srinath was next best only to the legendary Kapil Dev in the number of Test wickets by an Indian quick. A clip posted by Cricket Australia shows him operating at the peak of his powers, swinging a delivery viciously past the batsman’s defences to castle him neck and crop.
