his defense against the raw pace of bresnan, shahzad, anderson on swinging and seaming balls was solid. he was never troubled when those guys targeted his stumps. solid defense or push every time.
however when he played a bit expansively as the situation called for, he survived 3 plays and misses, and sliced one to deep backward point.
nonetheless, he has real potential because he has a cool head, and because he can defend. all he needs is to learn a proper drive shot and he can be decent. hooks/pulls and cuts are more natural shots that he can just work on in the nets.
I drop knowledge so heavy it leaves the world unbalanced, exterminating the spiritual force of all that challenge, I'm the lyrical apocalypse that crumbles the granite, replacing you as the dominant species on the planet.
