Shaun Pollock
Shaun Pollock:

Captain

Peak Performance:
A successful captain, rated as one of the leading all rounders in world cricket. More than useful with the bat having scored two test centuries. Has the ability to bowl line and length for extended periods. Adapts himself well for both disciplines of the game and a useful fielder in the close catching positions.

Form Index:
What he has lost in the pace department he makes up for in disciplined bowling. Putting pressure on the top order is an art he has mastered. His un-questionable leadership qualities seem to inspire him and his team to greater heights. With the bat he strengthens an already strong middle order.

 

 

Great Expectations:
After scoring his first test hundred his believe in his batting powers has seen a string of improved innings which should see him get close to a ODI hundred, if he gets the chance. His biggest influence will be seen in the on field captaincy and bowling departments.

Chink in the Armour:
Has very few but does at times tend to throw his wicket away in the chase for runs.
