Julia’s Advice to Michael Clarke
Well, I guess that’s what she was trying to do; offer advice to the Australian cricket team as they prepare to face Bangladesh in Dhaka.
That’s the trouble with Julia – you have to guess what she is trying to do. Partly because the outcomes she achieves never seem to match her stated intentions.
We’ll reduce the number of asylum seekers held in detention (by implementing policies which invite huge numbers to come).
We’ll increase employment (by punishing businesses and imposing heavy new taxes on our most productive industries).
You get the idea.
So I’m only guessing when I say that Julia must have been trying to offer our new test captain some helpful advice.
Her suggestion was something she calls the ‘hyperbowl.’
Based on her implementation of this technique, the hyperbowl can be summarised as follows:
A long run up, slow at first, then at a frantic pace towards the end. A flamboyant display is made of bowling with the right arm, but the actual delivery is made under-arm with the left.
That could work.
