Profile

The belief that when one seemingly indispensable player retreats into the background another often rises to the challenge was exemplified by Gary Ballance as he took the England chance offered by Jonathan Trott's stress-related illness. In no time, Ballance's nuggety left-handed batting style was providing the backbone of England's line-up. There was nothing overly stylish about his approach, but his discipline and shrewdness was apparent and he could step up the tempo when necessary. Ballance, in the coach's parlance was a batman who Found A Way.
