I just don't think there's enough in it to be an allrounder because you see almost no-one in grassroots level who is good at both. I remember very early on I was pretty mediocre at but. When I failed with the bat I usually got a wicket or two and when I went wicketless I usually got some runs. I just worked on my game in general, my batting improved and my bowling didn't. Ever since I've always thought of myself as a batsman. I think people will always be better at one than the other and usually you see players trying to improve their better skill to meet the requirements of playing at their particular level. Should you remain a genuine allrounder there's always the idea that you'll be thought of as a bits and pieces player
