well, not really. What's hard about hitting a ball for a four? or even touching it?
On the contrary, players like Brett Lee has to run 1/4of a km just to deliver the ball while keeping the line and length dead on. It doesn't stop there, if they don't get wickets or keep the batsmen under certain runs, they get dropped out.
While batsmen keeps on getting chances after chances. For example, Sehwag and Sachin.
Cricket is a very unfair game.
