Like poor Jonny Bairstow, stuck in the 90s during a test at The Oval and got so bogged down he scored something like 1 run in 40 minutes before (IIRC) Morne castled him. Form can be a fickle mistress but for it to suddenly evaporate in such a clutch situation seems a heck of a coincidence. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to read a psychological element into his travails.
Ditto Mahela in the final, actually. Took a look at the DL par sheet between overs with drizzle in the air and promptly gets out to a spasticated reverse scoop.
