Oh he absolutely could!But he could give you 8-1-5-20 on a good day. (That's 8 overs 1 maiden 5 wickets for 20 runs. )
His Test career was a non-starter, but his white-ball career was far better than people give him credit for. 62 wickets at 23 apiece and a wicket every 4.3 overs is a huge weapon in an ODI teamSadly these good days were a rarity during his international career.
I'm sorry I completely forgot. Still not found anywhere to live, but things have settled down in terms of sheer stress so I shall start doing them again in the next day or so
