Donald shows Harmy the way

Right then, the mystery of Steve Harmison has been solved, or at least analyzed successfully, at any rate. Thanks to the wisdom of Allan Donald. Don’t ask me why every one seems to think that Donald’s main job as England’s bowling consultant is to get Harmy back to his wicket-taking ways, but that seems to be the brief. And White Lightning has already cracked the problem. “It’s not that he is out of form right now - it’s just that every now and again he has been a little bit inconsistent,” said Donald sagely. So there we are – Harmy’s problem is not that he is inconsistent, but that he is inconsistently inconsistent. I can imagine the conversation between the two: “C’mon son, you can’t bowl one at the middle stump and one towards Paul at second slip. Stick to one line.” “OK coach.” Wide.
