What makes a great batsman?

Help BBC Sport build a profile of what makes a great England batter as we search for the Ultimate England Men's Cricketers of the 21st Century.

You will be able to pick the best England men's players across eight batting skills - cover drive, straight drive, cut, pull, off the pads, innovation, power and defence - when we launch our batting vote on the BBC Sport website and app at 14:00 BST on Friday, 26 June.

You will also be able to vote for the best England Men's bowlers across eight different categories when our bowling vote opens at 14:00 BST on Monday, 29 June.
