Profile

Leon is a very talented batsman. He unfortunately tries sometimes to do too much or too little - he will either attack or just sit there and go out. He lacks confidence, both in his bowling and his batting, something I'm sure will come with experience, as he's very young and still has a lot to learn. He has a very straight bat when he wants to use it as well. (Peter Gillies Mar 2000)
