>Shane Bond – A Great Loss to Test Cricket

>Shane Bond only played 18 Tests for New Zealand in his entire career. Injury forced him to miss another 46. But when he played, he played like a true champion. Taking 87 priceless wickets, that enabled New Zealand to win 10 of those 18 Tests and he himself was awarded Man of the Match a whopping 4 times.

Had he played more and continued to dominate the batsmen world over, he would have become the next Richard Hadlee, the greatest fast bowler produced by the New Zealand. His untimely and unfortunate retirement from Test Cricket this month puts an end to that dream.

Shane Bond will though continue to represent his country in one-day internationals and T20 matches. So we may see some records tumble and some spectacular victories for the Island Nation.
