Very, very impressed. He is carrying on the good form he has been in the past three-four months. Most of all, he is playing smart and intelligent cricket. He is not trying to slog every ball,” Gavaskar said.
“He is waiting for the right ball to come when the ball is tossed up and within his range, that’s when he is playing the big shot.
“Otherwise, look at some of the other shots he has played. He has used the bottom hand to a good effect. He knows exactly where the fielders are. Therefore, he is making sure he is hitting the ball in vacant spaces,” Gavaskar added.
When he is not looking to hit the ball into the stands, he is hitting it between the fielders. That has been the most impressive thing about his batting.
“He is now playing according to the need of the situation, and according to where the fielders are,” Gavaskar concluded
