FEC Alastair Cook.
The following is taken from an Assosciated Press release from yesterday… I caught wind of it, listening to Nasser Hussain & Michael Atherton, and thought I’d explore it further..
The Essex left-hander, who has developed impressively as an opener in the shortened format of the game since making his debut nearly two years ago, said: “The ideal role model is someone like Matthew Hayden, who has pretty much got the all-round game – he can hit sixes and he can hit singles to rotate the strike as well.
“If I’m looking at someone to follow, he would be where I’d like to end up at some stage. It is not going to happen after one day or one series, but work over time can get me somewhere close to it.”
Fucking hell man.. A good Essex lad, dreaming of being like Matthew Hayden.
It’s making me weep in to my afternoon tea!
How in the name of WG Grace, do you expect to change from a technically correct, defensive player, into a flat track bully, with a tendancy to eat small children?
The worlds gone mad, I tells ya!
