Dear Editor,

If Andy Roberts is right, since fast bowling is so critical to success in the game, West Indians may simply have to get out of international cricket.

However, Andy said that some people are good because they are born to bowl. So perhaps there may not be a lot of people around who are born to bowl. Therefore perhaps pure talent is more important than Andy is willing to let on. Whether it is Andy or any other great player, simplistic answers tend to be wrong.

Yours faithfully,

Romain Pitt
