Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since December 2009
“I shiver, thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people - to see one tiny part of them and confuse it for the whole, to see the cause and think it’s the effect or vice versa.”
Lack of technique hasn't hindered someone like Graeme Smith from racking up big scores while staying at the crease for a long time. As much as it's a cliche, he's probably the classic example of a batsman who "knows his limitations" well enough not to be too ambitious at driving the ball through the off-side against say a James Anderson swinging the ball away from him.
In other words, 'good technique' as a neccessity is overrated imo when it comes to making big scores - especially the last few years with pitches not offering much sideways movement. Shows why Sehwag and Hayden were so prolific at big hundreds in this era really.
