"customary grace "

Mike Brearley is a cultured and intelligent man. He is, indeed, a more accomplished writer and critic than he ever was an opening bat. As a cricketer at the highest level, Brearley was a passenger... Brearley’s greatness resides in his ability to admit this. And also to be able elegantly to assess his colleagues and predecessors, as he does with customary grace in his latest volume.
