Nice thread Zee. Even though Gower is before my time too, I remember reading about how he exemplified lazy elegance. Your comparison with Ashraful is perhaps an apt one because by the end of his career it was clear that Gower never fully lived up to his potential....
Some really nice strokes in that video - the pulls to deep fine leg and the pick-up flicks to deep square leg.
