Top Cricket Bowlers of all Time

Chris Tremlett

12 Test matches; 53 wickets; 27.00 average; 6 48 BBI; 54.7 strike rate Whether Chris Tremlett comes back into Test cricket and improves his position in this list remains to be seen. What we do know is that in just 12 Tests, he showed himself to be very potent indeed and capable of causing batsmen all sorts of problems. His form in the 2010/11 Ashes was incredible as he took advantage of Australias bouncy pitches, although he could not replicate that form last winter in the same country. He may yet return to international cricket.

Prepositions
An adjective clause (a group of words with at least one subject and one

verb) is a subordinate or dependent clause that functions as an adjective. This

type of clause answers the question, Which one? Relative pronouns, such as

who, whom, which, and that, begin adjective clauses. At times, words such

as where or when can also begin adjective clauses. If you delete the adjective

clause from a sentence, you will still have a full (though less informative)

sentence.


In the following sentences, the adjective clause is underlined. Notice the

word that begins the clause.


This extremely intelligent geologist, who is also a talented juggler,

has been asked to visit the State Assembly later this month.

The street that you live on is scheduled to be repaved next month.

The movie director, whom you read about last week, will be

promoting her new film throughout Europe.


There are essentially two types of adjective clauses—restrictive and unrestrictive

clauses.


➲ A restrictive (or essential) adjective clause offers essential

information that is necessary to complete the sentence’s thought.

An example of this is, ‘‘The trophy that was presented to you is

enormous.’’ Here, the adjective clause that was presented to you restricts

the information to just that trophy.

➲ An unrestrictive (or nonessential) clause simply offers more

information about the noun it describes. In the sentence, ‘‘The trophy,

which was made in Canada, was presented to you,’’ the adjective clause

which was made in Canada is nonessential to the sentence. It just offers

more information about the trophy.
