As far as the point of the thread goes...
Talent = range of strokeplay that a batsman posesses
Technique = risk involved in playing the shots at a batsman's disposal
Which really isn't correct, but is quite obviously what irfan meant.
Well - it was obvious to some, not to me.
Range of strokeplay, I maintain, would have been a better phrase for irfan.
