He might feel like an all-rounder after notching his maiden first-class hundred, but Queensland quick Ben Cutting isn't quite game to call himself one - yet.
The towering right-armer blasted 109 runs from only 78 balls on the second day of the Bulls' Sheffield Shield defence against South Australia at the Gabba.
Reaching triple figures in just one session, Cutting scored at a run a minute and also smacked 12 fours and four sixes.
There is an honour roll near the changerooms at the Brisbane Cricket Ground that lists every first-class century scored at the ground.
The dynamic Cutting has more than earned his place on it. But does that make him an all-rounder?
"I don't know," he told reporters after stumps, still beaming from his morning exploits.
"When it's on that board down there in a couple of days' time - it's official when that gets up there."
Redbacks skipper Nathan Lyon could be forgiven for thinking Cutting was picking on him.
A hefty chunk of the 25-year-old's total came from the Test spinner's bowling - at one stage, Cutting hit him for 32 runs in the space of just two overs.
"I think that's just the way I bat," he said matter-of-factly.
"It was just the way (Lyon) was tossing them up. I prefer facing spinners to quicks - particularly as an off-spinner, he's turning it into your pads, so even if you miss it, you get something on it."
Cutting admitted he was worried he might not have made the ton as a case of the nervous 90s struck him, with lunch fast approaching.
The Redbacks - clearly set on strangling his influence and putting an end to his rope-clearing - started bombarding him with legside deliveries and bouncers, but as the run rate slowed he kept his nerve.
Cutting remained patient and, on the last ball before the midday break, glanced one down to fine leg for two, pulling off his maroon helmet and leaping into the air in celebration.
"I didn't know what was going to happen - if we were going to declare at lunch or not, so I really wanted it before then," he said.
"There were a few nerves, when I got towards the 80s and 90s. I got my first hundred a couple of weeks ago for Souths in grade cricket and it felt pretty good.
"I tried to do that last year when I was playing my shots - get settled, take my time early on and hopefully the runs would come down the track. It came off today and it's a nice feeling."
With South Australia at 7-164 and the gallant Phillip Hughes (95 not out) in danger of running out of partners, Cutting said the Bulls were perfectly placed to swoop for victory over the final two days.
"It'd be nice to rock and roll them early in the morning and then have another crack at them, or have a short bat and see what happens," he said.
