Good luck .

He wont be batting at 11 again in any team he plays for. Don't believe he is much of a spinner, yet, but that will improve with age. He could be one of the great all-rounders of his generation.

Anyone know where he batted at school/age group cricket? He looks like a 6 or 7 to me.

Well done to the young man!

What a lovely lad... I hope he does well for the future (no more luck against England though... sorry)... he looks like he loved every minute and we were all egging him on to get that ton... my office was glued to Cricinfo refreshing every 30 seconds hoping he'd make it... oh well, other opportunities will come... good luck for the future Ashton
