A powerful throw sends a message to a batting team.
The batsmen are looking for a second run and you are in the deep. The both look up to see your throw, as do most of the batsmen waiting to come in. There is a subtle moment of expectation: Just how good is this guy’s throw?
You sear it in head high, dipping into the keeper’s gloves so he doesn’t have to move.
The batsmen make a mental note to keep it to one with you while the keeper and skipper applaud your arm.
