Ryan Sidebottom

One thing I really like about Ryan Sidebottom is how well he thinks on his feet. He troubled Jamie How with his left-arm angle in Wellington, so in the first innings at Napier How adjusted his stance and the angle of his head. The change meant that How was looking, and playing, down the line of Sidebottom's deliveries. This helped him to play Sidebottom comfortably for a wee while, but the bowler quickly picked up on the changes and decided to bowl round the wicket - negating the adjustments and troubling How once again, eventually getting him caught at slip.
