IND vs ENG | Ishant’s change in length has resulted in him picking more wickets, reckons Sunil Gavaskar
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Sunil Gavaskar, who was on air during day four, reckoned that Ishant Sharma’s change in length to a fuller one has resulted in him picking more wickets. He also pointed out that in the last two-three years, Ishant has picked up more wickets via LBW and bowled changing his lengths.Since he broke out in the series against Australia, Ishant Sharma has become an integral part of the Indian bowling attack over the years. However, during the early part of his career, with pace, his line and length were never under the scanner. Once the pace levels bore down, the right-arm seamer was consistently criticised for bowling the shorter lengths, which didn’t force the batsmen to play the shots. In the recent past, since his conversation with Jason Gillespie, the lanky pacer has changed his length to fuller ones, which Sunil Gavaskar reckons has resulted in him in picking more wickets. Gavaskar also insisted that prior to his change in length, the pacer was consistently beating the outside edge of the batsmen, not forcing them to play. "He's bowling a lot further. He was earlier on bowling maybe around 18 inches shorter and so therefore was going past the outside edge, beating the batsmen. It was all looking very good but in the wickets column he wasn't actually showing results," Gavaskar said during the tea interval on Day 4 of the first Test against Chennai, reported HT.Playing in his 98th Test match, the Delhi pacer brought up his 300 wickets in the longest format while also completing his 100 Test wickets tally in the country. Gavaskar elucidated his point by pointing out that Ishant gets the batsmen more trapped in front or hits the timber with his changed bowling lengths. "Now that he's started doing that in the last 2-3 years, this the kind of dismissals he gets – LBW, with the ball keeping low. The further you bowl, the more you get the opportunity to make the bowl move in the air or off the pitch."Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Don’t really think about records and achievements, states Ishant Sharma
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Ishant Sharma, who entered the 300-wicket club, stated that he doesn’t really have his sights on records and achievements of overtaking Zaheer Khan, with the focus just on improving his game. Recalling his spell to Ricky Ponting, Ishant stated that his only aim was to pin him under pressure.Since debut, Ishant Sharma has become the sole and binder of the Indian bowling unit, after he took over the reins from Zaheer Khan. Ever since then, the pacer has been consistently threatening the batsmen with his bowling performances, combined with his height and length. However, there was a period that followed where he struggled to pick wickets, with his inconsistency over his line and length. Post the Jason Gillespie episode, the pacer has turned his career around, fast becoming one of the best pacers in the world. In the ongoing Test against England, the pacer picked up his 300th Test wicket, with the wicket of Daniel Lawrence, who was caught right in front. However, despite getting to the landmark, Ishant Sharma stated that he doesn’t really think about records or achievements. “I don’t really think about overtaking Zaheer Khan or anyone on the list of any record. I don’t think about all these records, just focusing on improving myself and my bowling efforts. Just want to enjoy my cricket and keep playing for India and helping the Indian team,” Ishant Sharma told Ravichandran Ashwin in a video posted by BCCI. Talking about the spell that he bowled to dismiss Ricky Ponting, the lanky pacer stressed the importance of bowling a lot of deliveries, outside the off-stump channel, consistently putting the batsman under the pump. He revealed that a piece of advice from Sachin Tendulkar was to be as patient as if the pacer was bowling in the country. “I have bowled plenty of spells (like the one I bowled against Ponting) in first-class cricket. What happens in first-class cricket is constantly you have to keep working hard to get a wicket. You have to keep bowling maidens to tie the batsman down and that’s what Sachin Tendulkar told me in Australia. He just wanted me to be as patient as I’m playing in India,” he added.Ishant also recalled his first-ever wicket in the longest format, with the pacer picking up Bangladesh all-rounder Mashrafe Mortaza as his first scalp in the Indian whites. “The first wicket was Mashrafe Mortaza in Bangladesh, it was my debut and there wasn’t much crowd there as well. Anil Bhai (Kumble) held the catch in the gully, that was my first wicket.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | We didn’t put much application as a batting unit; focus is always on long partnerships, states Virat Kohli
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After another loss in the first match of a Test series, Virat Kohli has stated that India didn’t put much application as a batting unit in the first innings. He also raised the question about the state of the SG ball while adding that there was no real debate over the management not picking Kuldeep.On the back of a stressful series against Australia, where they won 2-1, India were put under the pressure on day one, in unfavourable conditions for bowlers. Right from the very first over of the day, the Indian team were put under the pump by the visitors, aided by Joe Root’s double century, which blew them apart. While India were expected to put a similar show with the bat in their first innings, they conceded a huge 241-run lead. Indian skipper Virat Kohli showed his displeasure over the application shown by the batting unit in the first innings. He added that the plan was to bat long in the first innings, chasing England’s total. However, at the same time, he reinstated milestones is something that they don’t really think about but instead focused on building long partnerships. “I think the Test probably shifted in their (England)’s favour when we batted in the first innings because we were looking to bat long and we couldn’t do that. There wasn’t much application shown by us as a batting unit, something that we take a lot of pride in. Look these milestones (100s) and all we don’t think about too much. We just look at building partnerships and put the team in good positions,” Kohli told pressers in the post-match press conference. “Someone has scored a century in the last five matches doesn’t matter to us but if people do put partnerships that help us win, that’s what matters. For us, it about trying to win a game of cricket and if we need to do play solid cricket, we should be able to do it. There’s no one way about it. As a batting unit, our focus would be on long partnerships.” he added.Kohli also reinstated that the state of the pitch didn’t help India on the first two days, with the deck being flat and slow. However, he stated that England’s first innings was the major differentiator between the two teams. “Look at the reality was that pitch was flat and slow. I’m not telling it as an excuse but that was the reality on the first two days of the game. It was only after third day when the pitch started to change. Before that, it was a very flat and slow pitch. Look, they got big runs on board in the first innings. We have to understand that’s the dynamics of the sport.”While Ashwin earlier raised complains over the quality of the SG ball, Kohli also expressed his surprise over the destruction of the ball completely on the first day of the five-day encounter. “The quality of the ball (SG) as well wasn’t something that we were pleased to see, that has been an issue in the past as well. The ball was destroyed in 60 overs, it’s not something that you are ready to experience as a Test side. England played better cricket than us.”The 32-year-old also stressed that the choice of picking Shahbaz Nadeem over Kuldeep Yadav is for variety, something that he revealed that they would lack in Kuldeep’s inclusion. “Not really (Kuldeep for Shahbaz) when we are playing two off-spinners, we needed variety, hence the decision to pick Shahbaz Nadeem. There was never a second doubt on the decision to pick Nadeem over Kuldeep. Going forward, we will think about what best we can do and then work on the team combination,” he concluded.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Rishabh Pant is amazing to watch as a neutral, insists Ian Bell
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Ian Bell, ahead of the fifth day’s play, insisted that Rishabh Pant is amazing to watch as a neutral before crediting his clear game plan a reason behind his success. While he praised him for his calculative batting, he stated that if India gets a good foundation, Pant could be the difference-maker.Since Rishabh Pant has made his Indian debut, India have already become one of the feared chasing sides in the world, as seen in the series against Australia. Despite setting up mammoth targets both in Brisbane and Sydney, Australia were made to sweat to draw the Test in Sydney while conceding the Test in Brisbane, all the back of Rishabh Pant’s ultra-aggressive counter-attack. In just the one innings this series, the left-hander has already set the fear amidst the English bowlers - with Jack Leach bearing the brunt of his batting display. Former English batsman Ian Bell insisted that Rishabh is amazing to watch as a neutral. He also added that the left-arm spinner Leach would be unsure about what Pant would do, facing him. "As a neutral, Rishabh Pant is amazing to watch. That was just Test cricket. We saw Cheteshwar Pujara doing his own thing in his own way, and Rishabh Pant doing it in his way, which was great. Jack Leach would be sitting there not knowing what to do now when Pant comes in and whether we see Leach bowl to him a lot, I am not so sure in this series," Bell said on ESPNCricinfo, reported HT.However, from an English standpoint, Bell stated that if India does get a foundation, via their top-order batsman - the left-handed batsman would be dangerous and could hurt the Three Lions. "One thing that worries me from England point of view is that if India get a foundation, and he can come in on the back of good run score, he could be dangerous. That is what worries me in this series. If India got a good foundation, Pant could really hurt England in the back of an innings."Bell also expressed that Pant’s aggressive mindset wasn’t just reckless batting but it was the left-hander backing himself and taking on the right bowlers. "I think it is so important for a young player to understand how you are going to go and to have a clear mind. Pant showed an aggressive mindset, clear in his game plan, how he was going to take him down. It was not just reckless hitting, backing himself, picking the right bowlers. Yes, clearing boundary fielders but then rotating the strike along the way," he added.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Daring Dominic makes his own scorching luck as the bess-t in Chennai’s heat
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Sunglasses on, a slow run-up quickly turns into a steady one, a shimmy before a release that sees the ball spin and turn - an account of Dominic Bess’ performance on the third day of the first Test in Chennai.The scene was set, the sun still sparkling with no mercy on the bowlers and a physically tired batting unit in front, Dominic Bess had everything on his side to announce his arrival. Coming into the series, he was definitely destined to lead the spin attack but he hadn’t quite arrived yet in the longest format. Every time, he picked up wickets, it was quickly shut down as luck, poor batting or just great fielding. Enough of that!Chennai, one of India’s better-suited conditions to spin bowling had just shown the hosts that it wasn’t true to the words on the first two days of play. There was certainly going to be jitters, especially for the visiting spinner, who is yet to see real pressure of facing the mighty Indians. The talks of comparison with Graeme Swann naturally followed but Bess, being Dominic couldn’t care less. His journey arguably started with a high before rejection came kicking in - having made his debut against Pakistan at the mighty Lord’s in 2018. He went wicketless, scored a 57 in the second innings but being the only spinner, the head was always with a bounty. When he went to Leeds, he walked in as a nightwatchman, continued as a batsman and ended up as one of the best spinners across teams on the day. Yet when the time came, he was chucked out for Jack Leach and Moeen Ali in the Ashes, ripped apart even at Somerset, being pushed to the second XI. The highs were high and the lows terribly low - for the youngster, who had big shoes to fill, a tall mountain to climb. The steps to the mountain certainly weren’t all glory - it had stages where every second step was a false one and the third, with doubts attached behind it. All he could manage is to get into the squad, rather narrowly against South Africa during the 2020 series, a bout of luck could go a long way in boosting his confidence. But as fate would have it, as it had his entire career - a lucky break came his way, where he got an opportunity to showcase his skills in South Africa, another daunting place to play as a spinner. At the first opportunity, he had to go through the rigour, the vale of being a Test match spinner in South Africa, setting up the batsmen. As luck would ride it, Dean Elgar with a pretty poor shot found the fielder and that kick-started his second innings. One luck found another and Bess had two wickets in his first outing in South Africa. Within a few overs, one turned three in his second Test against the Proteas and his Test career had suddenly seen the rising sun. As Rassie Van der Dussen walked back, he had his first fifer, in South Africa, under pressure, which made it sweet but no guarantees were attached, as the riding luck could always step out and walk away. An entire English summer saw him show plenty of potential without much consistency and luck. Moeen Ali was back in the squad, it was Sri Lanka, a side that Ali had previously tormented. There wasn’t a better opportunity for England to have Ali run round the Sri Lankan circles before their showdown fixture against India. Entered one of Bess’ consistent friends during his international career - luck returned, right in time for the first Test against Sri Lanka. That was it, that was really the kick-start to his career, a fifer at Galle, where the fifer could literally be written on Luck’s profile, instead had Dominic Bess’ name all over it. His reaction, however, was well-measured, showing maturity at the age he was still finding his feet in international cricket. “It’s a proud moment because I’ve taken five wickets for England and no one can take that away from me. I probably haven’t bowled as well as I could have, and I got away with one or two but that’s cricket. I’ve also bowled very well on days and haven’t taken any poles,” he acknowledged how luck has been a constant part of his cricketing life. Suddenly his average had seen a sharp turn, from averaging 40 with the ball in 2020 to averaging 20.68 with the ball in 2021. The year was well within his rights of converting his luck into a golden one. Sri Lanka was just one part of it, where he emerged as a small picture in the world of Root. However, the realisation suddenly started gaining momentum - he didn’t get all the luck without any effort! It had to be attributed to the long spells, the ones where there was nothing going his way - absolutely nothing; rotten luck - dropped catches and missed stumpings. But when you come against one of the best teams against spin bowling - in India - that too on the first tour to the country, it immediately puts one under the pump. Under the pump, here also means that one could see the end of one’s career. There were no in-betweens, no one has come back from the country half-successful, ever! On top of that, the impatient wait to get the cherry and have a crack amidst the cracked-paper at Chepauk, Bess had a real opportunity to leave an indelible mark. Archer had just created ripples, Anderson had seeded some doubts in the batsmen’s mind but when the spinners were introduced, lunch was around the corner. And when they came back, one of the best players of spin - Virat Kohli was at the crease. There were talks of how he was revitalised after a break, wanting to rip apart the English bowling unit. At the other end, the talk with Bess was always surrounded by - how much more can he get lucky? Does he deserve all the luck?Bowling slightly wider from the crease, some drift, some air going his way, turn and bounce, what has happened here? Kohli walks back, but what has Bess really done? In the last three overs that Kohli had faced prior to the snarler, the off-spinner had set him up properly, consistently tying him down at the striker’s end. Gaining enough momentum and confidence from this, Bess produces a spicy delivery to get the prized scalp. “I was just trying to bowl at a spot, trying to build pressure for a long time, and I guess it just happened. It wasn't like I was trying to bowl that magic ball. It was really just about hitting that box. I saw the replay and it seemed to [drift] a little more and got him playing at a wider line, and I'm glad Popey took a great catch at short leg,” Bess said of Kohli’s wicket.Bess had arrived, this time without it being tainted, lucky or a poor shot played from the batsman - the off-spinner, the 24-year-old had just dismissed Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, one of the best batsman in the longest format. All on the back of sheer skills, utmost patience and truly spectacular bowling. Daring Dominic didn’t wait for luck to come his way, he rather made his own luck in Chennai’s heat.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Rishabh Pant is very instinctive; would never want him to change, opines Gautam Gambhir
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Gautam Gambhir has opined that Rishabh Pant’s instinctive nature is what makes him who he is and also opined that he never wants Pant to change his batting approach. He also insisted the management not to change his batting approach by developing defence in his arsenal of batting.Live by the sword, die by the sword - a true proverb that surrounds the young Rishabh Pant’s batting style for the Indian team in the longest format. Ever since his return in Melbourne, the left-hander has been involved in two of India’s most memorable Tests - in Sydney and Brisbane, where he scored influential 90s. However, in the ongoing Test in Chennai, the left-hander fell right in the same mark, which prompted a lot of critics to talk about his shot selection. Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, however, was having none of that, opining that Pant is very instinctive in nature and should continue to bat the same way. He also added that putting thoughts of defending more would only make him doubt his skills."He would start thinking about his shot selection. But he's very instinctive and you like players who are very instinctive. Sometimes you have to take that with a rub of salt as well, when you say why do you have to go and do that (hit a shot) when you are in the 90s. It's a given 100, it's on a platter,” Gambhir said on ESPNCricinfo."I would never want Rishabh Pant to change. Because the more you put things in his mind, he would start defending more," he added.However, Gambhir also expressed that Pant could keep improving on his shot selection, which would only make him better. He didn’t want the left-hander to develop a defense, which will take away his natural game. "Don't tell him to develop a defense or a better technique or become more technically sound. Because the more you become technically sound, you start thinking about what ball to hit, what not to hit, and it starts playing with your instincts. I want Pant to be an instinctive player for as long as he plays," Gambhir signed off.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | We could have batted better and eliminated soft dismissals, rues Cheteshwar Pujara
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Cheteshwar Pujara, following the third day’s play, has rued that the Indian batting unit could have batted better on the day and should have eliminated the soft dismissals. However, Pujara insisted that his dismissal was unfortunate and added that he couldn’t have done anything about that.At 257/6, India would look back at their first innings effort, which has put them under undue pressure chasing England’s mammoth first innings total of 578. However, there were a lot of soft dismissals on the way, including a freakish dismissal which saw the back of Cheteshwar Pujara. Since then, the duo of Washington Sundar and Ravichandran Ashwin have stayed put at the crease to see the day out. During the day, however, there were a lot of dismissals, which irked Cheteshwar Pujara, who insisted that the home team could have shown more application with the bat. He also stated that there were a lot of soft dismissals which could have been eliminated. The Indian No.3 batsman also revealed that the pitch isn’t as bad as expected, with it still good enough to bat on. “There is a bit of spin now, I don’t think it is that bad. First two days it was really really flat, our bowlers did their best. It was a pitch that had no assistance for the spinners in the first two days. Anyways, we have to accept reality and move on. Batting wise, we could have batted better, there were some soft dismissals that could be eliminated, the way I got out and Rahane got out. But with Ashwin and Washington playing, hope they put on a partnership and put us in a good position tomorrow,” said Pujara in the virtual press conference. “We will try taking one session at a time, the first session tomorrow would be crucial. We would like to bat as long as possible. It’s still a good pitch to bat on and we have our tail-enders to bat, so there’s a lot to play for and we want to get close to their score.”Pujara also opened up on India’s approach, with the Indian batsmen getting their runs at a far higher pace than the English counterparts. He also opined that Ajinkya Rahane’s shot would have found the gap nine out of ten times and raced off to the boundary. However, on the day, it went straight into the hands of Joe Root, who put on a show in the field. “No it wasn’t part of a game plan (to score quickly), we just wanted to bat normally. The conditions are different, in India, the scoring rate is always on the higher side and there were loose deliveries. Rishabh bats that way, he wants to bat his natural way, that’s fair and that is how he should play. The ball was there for Rahane to hit but unfortunately for him, it went to covers. Nine out of ten times, he would have scored a boundary. I didn’t want to do anything extra, I was getting runs, we weren’t thinking of getting close to their total. We just wanted to put the bad balls away.”On his dismissal, the Saurashtra batsman sighed that it was a dismissal that he couldn’t do anything about, as the ball had hit the close-in fielder Ollie Pope before finding Rory Burns. “My dismissal is something I can’t do anything about as a batsman. That’s the only way I could have gotten out. Everything was going perfect and I was a bit disappointed about it. It was a bad ball and I can’t really help that it went to the fielder.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | India should preserve Bumrah for the pink-ball Test, reckons Gautam Gambhir
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After his display in the first Test, Gautam Gambhir has reckoned that India should rest Jasprit Bumrah for the second Test in an attempt to preserve him for the pink-ball clash in Ahmedabad. He also insisted that Bumrah can’t be bowling long sessions as he did in Chennai, which would wear him down.Jasprit Bumrah in the last few years has emerged as India’s ace bowler across formats, both at home and away from home. So much so that he has gone on to play almost all of India’s games in the last year, across formats, making his workload one of the talking points for the Indian management. During the ongoing Test against England, the right-arm pacer has already bowled 36 overs in the first innings, which has prompted a huge debate. Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has reckoned that India should preserve Jasprit Bumrah for the pink-ball Test. He also added that the management should consider resting Bumrah for the second Test in Chennai, with the conditions unfriendly to the pacers. "100 percent, absolutely. I'm not even sure whether Bumrah should be picked for the second Test match. I think India should preserve him for the pink-ball Test match. See, Jasprit Bumrah is a X-Factor in the series, irrespective of what surfaces to play on and you've got to keep that in mind too," Gambhir said on ESPNCricinfo, reported HT.Gambhir also insisted that Virat Kohli should consider giving the pacer short burst of spells, instead of handing him a long duty with the ball. Since his debut, Bumrah has bowled the most of overs in an innings of a Test, against England. While he was also the most successful of Indian bowlers, his workload, according to Gambhir could be the difference between a win and a loss. "Jasprit Bumrah you can't just keep bowling for longer sessions. Give him that short burst of three overs to try and pick a quick wicket, but not long spells because Bumrah is going to be very important going forward in the series. And if something happens to him, India is going to be in serious trouble," the former batsman added.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Reports | Mohammed Shami eyeing return to the Indian squad for third Test
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After injuring himself in the first Test against Australia, Mohammed Shami has resumed practice with a view of making his return to the Indian setup for the pink-ball Test against England. The pacer was ruled out of the first two Tests in Chennai, with him still recovering from the injury.India’s series against Australia had endured an injury count, beyond seen in the recent Test history. At one point, it looked like India wouldn’t have eleven players eligible for selection. One of the injured players during the series was Mohammed Shami, who was considered key to India’s chances of success Down Under. However, his injury paved way for Mohammed Siraj, who turned out to put a heroic performance in Australia. With India already having announced their squad for the first two tests in Chennai, Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of the reckoning. However, with the pacer increasing his activity at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, reports suggest that the bowler would be available for selection for the pink-ball Test in Ahmedabad. "Shami's forearm is fine right now. He will have some low intensity net sessions for the next few days. He has been advised to bowl around 18 deliveries a day at 50 to 60 percent effort," a source in the know of things told PTI on conditions of anonymity, reported TOI."The pink ball Test is still two and half weeks away (February 24). There is a very good chance that Shami will be fit and available for selection,” added the source.The pacer had also posted a video on Twitter, where he was seen bowling in the nets. The source added that they would have a clear picture of the situation by the end of this week. "That he has started bowling means that his forearm is fine. He doesn't have any other niggles as of now so by the end of next week, a more clearer picture will emerge," said the source. Always focus on how far you’ve come ,rather than how far you have left to go 💪🏻💪🏻 #TeamIndia #mshami11 pic.twitter.com/rXGOe9JYo3 — Mohammad Shami (@MdShami11) February 5, 2021Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .
