If you have any experience as a batsmen you know you default to a certain style. Perhaps you attack like Kohli and Pietersen. Maybe you are more circumspect like Cook or Trott.
But whatever your style as a batsman, you can't use it as an excuse.
If you are a big hitter and you get out in a tight run chase trying to clear deep midwicket, you can't shrug and say "it's the way I play". If you are a naturally cautious batsman there is no excuse for making the middle order have to take great risks because you have wasted balls at the top of the order.
Some might say it's selfish batting.
