It’s yet another amazing thing about Dale Steyn that he’s pretty damn likely to slice in and arc the first ball of the day past the batsman’s outside edge. He doesn’t really do looseners.
Our own approach to starting work is more like that of Peter Gibbons, who explains how he likes to just ‘space out’ for about an hour at the start of his working day.
“I just stare at my desk; but it looks like I’m working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch too. I’d say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work.”
Dale’s the keen guy at work. The guy who’s really eager and ‘tries’.
But it’s okay to be that guy in his line of work, because his line of work is massively cool.
Dale’s a fast bowler.
