To youngsters his batting is a terrific example of how to play correctly without losing ones ability to play shots and that is what is important to youngsters. He is a superb batting model. As a sportsman he has carried himself through all controversies and tough and tense situations with dignity and he has shown that he is very much in control of him emotions. That I think is his greatest example to budding cricketers.
