“Don’ts for Cricketers” – on genius

Don’t expect genius to trouble itself with rules. No human law need concern the genius: he is a law to himself, and looks down from a lofty eminence on his weaker brethren.

One that needs to be taken with a little caution – the “genius” first needs to deliver positive outcomes (modern jargon!), and can only rarely afford to disregard the rest of the team.

But when a player displays “genius”, she needs to be encouraged, not repressed.
