Has never been in a French New Wave film. After making 166 in his second test he said, “I guess I have a lot to live up now.” Hasn’t yet lived up to it, making two fifties since then. His batting is perhaps too pretty to be real. Sort of like watching a young Sugar Ray Robinson in the dusk light filmed on a 16mm cam. His footwork is breathtaking, but has been used mainly to walk to and from the wicket of late. Was verbally fellated by Ian Chappell so much after his hundred that many believe this is the reason for his loss of class. Has never had the nickname, “cricket’s Justin Bieber”.
