Yes, he did. I should have probably said 'openers' or no.3. Gayle, Sehwag etc to name a few. Middle order batsman, such as Kevin Pietersen, more often need to slow down at some point of a given innings to start re-building due to sudden wkt losses. Its inevitable. But, openers, aggressive ones, if they get a head start, they can bat away more worry free. Anyway, just was an observation. Obviously, there is no right formula, but something I have noticed recently.
