Reverse Swing

by Vishal Misra



Would you believe this incredible pair,
a captain's dream, batsmen's nightmare,
swing and pace, that incredible mix,
in and out, and the one that kicks,
meet the kings - they have it all.

alas and despair, the thomases doubt,
noises are heard, allegations sprout,
do they tamper? is that their call?

What's the secret, of the swing reverse?
abounding arguments, mostly perverse.
quietly they continue, casting spells
actions speak, and the talent tells,
reality strikes - the theories fall.

 

Contributed by Vishal Misra, 1996
