    Haha 330 views, not bad.
    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    Absolutely absurd hand/eye required for the shot at 0:42.

    Kinda like a right-handed Khawaja.

    Nah, Khawaja can't drive. This bloke is imperious on the drive. Opposites really. Daniel Flynn is New Zealand's Khawaja.

    Daniel Flynn is also Khawaja with commitment and balls.

    That guy is more of a Sinclair-Guptill mould with better front foot technique but Carlchopa esque bouncer handling.

    Front foot offside, rinse and repeat.

    True, I guess. He definitely has the same stylish looseness about him though, if you can see where I'm coming from. Compared to a guy like Seifert who's far more of a rough-around-the-edges McCullum/DeVilliers type brutaliser.

    Weerasundara could be playing FC next season if he continues to look like that tbh. Many of the current openers can't be far from calling it a day.

    de Villiers is weird. He started out pretty correct iirc and has slowly stripped his technique down over the years. Usually it goes the other way.

    Yeah I've just never found him a pleasant batsman to watch. Has an absurdly good eye and a killer pull but none of it's got much flair or natural flourish to it.

    Have played against Weerasundara a few times ftr. Looks like he's grown a bit - was pretty short when I played him, he would've been maybe 15 the first time and then 16 or 17 the last time. Looked a decent player then but I got the feeling he was one of those guys that is a bit scared to play shots - maybe he's growing out of that.

    There's a couple of games in the vault where he and others are trying to keep out the shooters on a Karori Park pitch; he scores 0(21) and 10(33). What he managed at Lincoln probably erased years of Wellington pitches telling him he was only a reasonable young player tbh. Nice flat tracks in Darwin in July could see his shares on the Benchmark00 Penny Dreadful Index unfurling their true potential, handily close to domestic contracts day.

    Haha true. Although if Carlchopa ever plays a hook shot right off his grill like the one at 0.39, the children of CW will be sent home for the day.
