Cricketing Cliche 6

Glued to the crease.

Either a batsman or his feet are often spoken of as "glued to the crease". Again, a nice enough image when it was first coined, but terribly overused now.

It is often said of Virender Sehwag, as it happens, that his feet are "glued to the crease". But his minimal footwork doesn't impede his effectiveness, and he's (cliche coming up) tearing apart Pakistan's bowlers now with some outstanding strokeplay. He just cut Rana Naved-ul-Hasan for a six over third man. What a guy.
