Reminds most people of that guy they went to school with, you know the type, was always destined to do well, you liked him and all, but you could never remember a conversation you had with him. Has the stiffest of stiff upper lips. Performed his own version of the crusades when he convinced his teammates to go back to India after the Mumbai attacks. Is a proper opening batsman, but has a reputation for being stodgier than he actually is. Captains the English side in a modern public school way, in that he makes others believe he really cares what they think, that they are part of the decision-making process and then only listens to Andy Flower. Has a stoic elegance to him, would not be the worst model for a clothing line aimed at people who have so much money they like extreme sports.
