Ramnaresh Sarwan is a batsman who’s tended to do well when we’ve been looking the other way. Early in his career, he was mighty. After that he alternated between injured and mediocre. Now he’s having a bit of a resurgence.
Sarwan has an uncanny knack of not doing anything when he bats. He doesn’t maintain this state indefinitely, but it does last an abnormally long time. The ball gets to within an inch of him and you’ve still no clear idea as to whether he’s going to leave it or pan it to the boundary.
On the downside, he has a creepy lack of eyebrows. If we didn’t have eyebrows, we’d damn well make the effort to grow some.
