Every time I watch this bloke bat I like what I see (apart from the hair, and the nationality, but we'll let that slide for the moment).
Technically, he's balanced, well aligned, the bat is beautifully straight on such a regular basis - witness the power with which he hits the ball and the regularity with which it goes straight back past the bowler). The only technical question I'd have is his back-foot game, but I can't remember when I've seen him get out in this fashion - it's usually nicking off (or being run out). He's opened the batting and got to fifty 16 times in 36 innings, which shows he can leave appropriately... yet then he gets out so often when he's settled and the opposition heads are dropping: and he still averages 49.88 in that role.
Then you see an innings like yesterday, when the opposition are just ground into the dirt. Is it just maintaining his concentration over longer periods?
So is that the ultimate factor in defining a batsman's ultimate success?
