Excellent technical description!
Not sure it matters actually. 46 is hitting his average pretty much and with the way they are playing, they are looking at making good partnerships and he and Bairstow had already got 130 odd(?) on the board at around 4 an over. That shot looks terrible when it’s a top edge but previously he was smashing it and he scored a big hundred in the last game playing across the line a lot. Calculated risk.
