What he said:
“I never saw Viv leave a ball because I only saw highlights.”
Kirk Edwards is a debutant with panache—with bat and microphone. Viv Richards was his childhood hero whose batting he saw only in highlights. Edwards had to learn to leave the ball in the traditional manner—through coaching.
What he really meant:
“Viv Richards never left a ball go by, I swear!”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Viv Richards made bowling look easy.”
