maybe what you define cricketing talent as is different to what I define it as.
talent for me is the hand eye coordination, the eye, the ability to pick length early etc...all of that... pretty much all the rest is coached. Of course talent could be defined as the ability to pick up was is coached quickly I guess, I just dont see talent being like that.
