He made proficient use of a consistent length of short-pitched bowling from the Englishmen, <a href="/tags/Steven-Finn/post" target="_blank">Steven Finn</a> in particular. The cover-drives were Lara-esque and the pulls would have pleased Matthew Hayden. He even lofted Swann over either arm of the &lsquo;V&rsquo; for a couple of maximums with the flair of a top-order batsman. But the one shot that made you want to worship him was the on-drive he hit with the raised back leg. You could watch it a million times over.
