(Video) Normal services resume for Kemar Roach

Early on the opening day of the first Test between Pakistan and West Indies, Imran Butt was at the receiving end of a trademark Kemar Roach slanter that bombed through his defences. The 134kmph thunderbolt swirled in the air to mock Butt’s drive and rattle the furniture.

It did tail in a fair bit, although the right-hander did himself no favours by plonking his toe towards mid-off. Once he committed to the cover drive, he was handicapped by his technique as the downward projection of the bat at a slanted angle spelt doom.
