    You make him sound like a backyard tennis-ball cricketer.
    Which, of times, he can be.

    Compare that with the not so gifted Gary Kirsten and you will get my point.
    Ironic thing is, even Gary Kirsten was far from perfect technically - and twice in his career that lead to Gibbs-esque periods of getting repeatedly dismissed the same way.

    No disputing whatsoever Kirsten was the better batsman of the two, but it's not so simple as a risk-taker\technician thing.

    Was thinking the same too. Kirsten played with a straight bat and could play a cover drive, but he wasn't exactly the left-handed Daren Ganga.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
