I guess so, but with his skipper at the other end, perhaps a word of wisdom would have produced a different result. Only speculation, result is in.notgoingoutreprise wrote: ↑Mon May 14, 2018 4:57 pmWhen you in the zone you just carry on what has been working for you.Vetchetarian wrote: ↑Mon May 14, 2018 8:42 amAfter such a heroic batting effort by de Lange, it is with a heavy heart that I may be perceived as criticising his method of dismissal.
Having flailed his bat so effectively, and with Leicestershire's fielders apparently ringed around the boundary, and with just four runs required for victory, why not just play for something more circumspect, singles, or a couple of two's. Did he not trust Hogan to hold his end up ?
To go for yet another six was perhaps just a big hit too many.
I wonder if he will wake up at night, in a cold sweat, mull it over, and come to a similar conclusion.
Well done him, anyway.
