The Cop With An Anthem

A fearsome bowler he may be, but having dealt with dead bodies and victims of crime, there is a sensitive side to him. But that is one side of his personality he does not let the batsmen see.

Last week in the World Cup Super Sixes clash against his Trans-Tasman neighbours, Australia, he turned in a bowling performance that will be talked about for quite sometime.. That small little cricket ball in his hand resembled a missile; a weapon hurled at men on the other side of the crease with incredible speed and ferocity. Six wickets for 23 runs was his haul and among his victims was the Australian skipper, Ricky Ponting, who by now must be convinced that Bond has his number. In each of the six games Bond has played against Australia, he has picked up the wicket of Ponting who just cannot seem to get away when the "Canterbury Policeman" is patrolling the streets.
