It was 10.52 pm( in Montreal), when he drove the ball for four and brought up his 100. The savvy Aussie spectators gave him a standing ovation, licking their lips in anticipation, awaitng the next match on Dec.2. His teammates also applauded, but in discomfort, wondering how this 19 years old could do what he did when they failed( with the exception of Dowlin and Ramdin), so miserably. He was polished. He was poised. He was beautiful to watch. It was one of the most enjoyable batting display that I have seen, made more extraordinary by the collapse arouind him. He made the Aussie attack look ordinary and his eventual dismissal was, at best, a border-line lbw.
His 104 will stand out not only as one of the best maiden century but one of the best period. Bravo Adrian, we are anticipating a glorious future.
