'Ol George, always relevant

Years ago, I read George Orwell write that Hitler missed out on his ultimate secret weapon: newsreel footage of German soldiers goosestepping. As Orwell suggested, these should have been played as an advance weapon on any war front; the English soldiers would have died laughing.

I fear the same fate might await Andre Nel's histrionics. I can't imagine that any batsman takes his exaggerated gestures seriously. He needs to tone it down, or up the menace levels. Right now, he's flirting with Spinal Tap, and thats not good.
