    He's been dreaming about scoring footy tries and getting better at tennis! That's just classic

    It was interesting to hear him say at some point that he never really felt he was that good a player. You'd think after excelling for an extended period those sort of self doubts would fade away.

    Gilly was the same. It really comes through in his book how much he doubted himself, which is pretty remarkable considering he was one of the greatest cricketers of all time.

    When its happening it can make a difference I guess, in retrospect I think when Morris hears some of things he achieved, if he wasn't such a gentleman he'd be saying how awesome he was. To outscore and average the Don in the same amount of innings. Helped by his last innings sure, but still a big achievement.
    I loved his perspective on things too. Stupid commentators making big stories out of side issues, and he was laughing like they were nothing, which of course they were. Except perhaps if he had gone out drinking with Miller! I'd love to be asked to party with Keith Miller!
