Just like Cheteshwar Pujara, even Dom Sibley has a classical batting base that indulges him to have a big appetite for batting long and patiently. Especially, with his unorthodox tight technique, Sibley is highly dependent on his leg-side scoring and overall possibly has a very refrained stroke play when it comes to freely expressing himself in the shortest format.

At present when it comes to his T20 numbers, Sibley has played a total of 35 T20 games and has a reasonable strike rate of 121.29 along with an average of 29.62. Now the above numbers are definitely reasonable, but when analyzed in England cricket’s high scoring T20 environment, the figures do then certainly become dull. Also, with Sibley barely been seen as someone who likes muscling the ball, the cricketer is more of a boundary fetcher rather than known to hit sixes.

Overall, while Dom Sibley might be just off 25 years of age at present, the cricketer’s T20 batting in many ways is also miles away in which the current English players play their explosive brand of T20 cricket. Hence, in general, it might not be a surprise if Sibley tries to only become a longer format specialist in the near future.
