Its just such a cricket myth that is perpetuated constantly to the point where its just accepted as fact. You have to score runs and put the bowlers off their length or upset them etc. Otherwise you are not playing your natural game and will go out.
Apparently just tiring the mofos is doesn't work. Oh wait, Faf, BJ Watling etc.

I don't think it's perpetuated just so they can nod heads though, they have a pretty logical cricketing reason behind it.

But a lot of myths or overestimated factors in sport are logical but ultimately wrong or misleading. Hell, half of Moneyball was theories that made sense to people who had been in baseball for years and years. But there were results which showed the contrary to what they believed.
It is absolute parody though where people are talking about the same players that did it. I mean people are talking about AB not being able to change the way he plays when he bloody well did it only a year and a bit ago against the same opposition in the exact same circumstance..

Having now seen the highlights it looks like Boof wasn't happy with Dools approach. Guys playing for his spot and the team wanted quick runs. Tough situation.
And that reverse from Rogers.
Only managed to see drips-and-drabs of todays play, but Mitchell Johnson's ball that got Elgar was an absolute nut!
