It never goes well. Matthew Hayden is very poor at executing his talking skills. Thanks to RC for pointing us towards Hayden’s latest attempt in an interview with Cricinfo.
Here are some highlights:
“I go to the middle, I mark the crease and I squat on the wicket. I feel grounded when I do that.” – a lesson for all young batsmen who accidentally launch skywards and orbit the earth when they’re supposed to be going out to bat.
“The zone to me is pretty much every time I go out to bat.” – Matthew Hayden will tell you that he’s the absolute best at modesty as well. ‘I am shit-hot at modesty’ he will say.
“As fine a cricketer as I am right now, I don’t think as a young player I had it right.” – See! Shit-hot at the modesty.
He also says that an opening partnership is like being in a couple. But we already know about Hayden and Langer.
