Either he is a retard or his injury and workload might have seriously affected his performance. That was clearly a tired shot - and exactly how it looks when it doesn't come off. If you hadn't noticed, he was just hitting everything off the spinners near the end of the day (Narine went for plenty). Probably could have still done better, yes. But when you're in pain, it's hard to concentrate and keep a calm head. So while it's not justifiable
, it is understandable
. He deserves more criticism for his 87 in the first match IMO, even though it might look less terrible.
