The thing is, his natural game that I remember is not really all that aggressive. It was uncomplicated and he was content to leave plenty of balls, rotate the strike and only hit the bad balls.
I'd much rather he play those sweet back foot punches through the covers - the type of shot where he's looking for a single but the timing just happens to be so perfect that it goes for a four - than pulling or cutting the same back-of-a-length delivery.
He had a natural patience and just seemed to love batting. Despite the fact that he's hitting the ball in a godly manner now, I get the feeling that he just can't be ****ed. Of course, that could just be because of ****ty domestic attacks...
