He is not the prettiest of batsman. He is not easy on the eye. He is not an extravagant shot-maker. He also does not have the greatest record in ODI cricket – 3810 runs in 104 innings at an average of 41.41 and strike rate of 86.31, including 8 hundreds and 23 fifties – 8 Australian batsmen have a higher ODI average (min. 1000 runs). His form of late has also been quite average and he had scored just 294 runs in 9 innings in the group stages of the 2019 World Cup at an average of 32.67 – this includes three single-digit scores and two between 10 and 20.
