    A snippet of commentary from the match:

    14:13 - WI 107-5
    My giddy aunts - how did that miss? Onions slices Nash in half with a fullish in-dipper that somehow circumvents both blade and bail. After a sprinted single there's a push down the ground from Ramdin for two, and a strange top-spin forehand hook just past the reaching Cook at square leg for four more. That's more like it, however, a slower short one which is smashed to the same spot with wristy relish.

    Always associated, in my mind - and indeed the collective cricket mind - with the Sub-Continent.

    Think Zaheer Abbas.

    http://content.cricinfo.com/pakistan/content/player/43695.html

    There was not a touch of arrogance about Zaheer's batting but of lyrical, fluent movement, his innings memorable for a refined, effortless beauty. His strength was precision and timing. He had the ability to go on back and front foot with equal facility, on occasions moving from backward to forward or vice versa during the course of one stroke and yet send the ball crashing to the fence. A high back-lift gave him a touch of elegance, and combined with powerful and supple wrists guiding the ball into the gaps on both sides of the wicket, he scored a very high proportion of his runs in boundaries. When the going was good, he seemed like a maestro at work, his artistry, his elegance leaving connoisseurs awestruck.

    Or think Mohammad Azharuddin.

    http://content.cricinfo.com/ci/content/player/26329.html

    Those who saw this supreme batting artist at his peak will never forget him - sinewy wrists transforming a slender piece of willow into a magician's wand. Azhar's leg-side play was reminiscent of Zaheer Abbas and Greg Chappell - a Michelangelo in the midst of housepainters. In later years, he expanded his off-side repertoire, and conjured some of the finest innings played in the modern era - his 121 at Lord's in 1990 was one for the gods. His technique was suspect against the short stuff, a deficiency he sought to overcome through instinctive strokeplay, sometimes with cavalier disregard for the team situation.

    The aforementioned "relish" is not a sweet pickle made of various vegetables, usually chopped or minced.
