But, he is set and seems to be in good touch (apart from wafting away at a few outside the off) -should get to a ton.
Not basing this just on this inning. I've thought he's the perfect #4 for a few years now. I was also right about Mushfiq and believed he would be a key player even in his early days; and people who doubted his abilities back then can't think of a squad without him these days. Same issue there - playing a very capable top/middle order batsman way too low down the order (#8) for years and expecting 50s and 100s.
Screw the IPL, I'm going to the MLC!
