IND vs ENG | 2nd Test in Chennai – Statistical Preview
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After a humdinger of a first Test saw the visitors, unexpectedly, come out on top, India and England will clash once again in Chennai from Saturday in the second Test of the four-match series. England will need to win to boost their WTC hopes, while a loss would knock India out of WTC contention.Form GuideRarely do teams win three away matches on the trot in Test cricket, but this English side, earlier this week, doubled this figure. Yep, with the victory in the first Test against India in Chennai, Joe Root’s men stretched their away winning streak to SIX(!!!). Dating back to 2018, England have also now won six consecutive matches in the sub-continent and in the first Test, they played like a team that have well and truly mastered the art of playing in Asian conditions. They batted long - excruciatingly long, you could say - got their tactics, team selection spot on and showcased immense patience with the ball to dominate India across five full days. Perhaps for the first time in 16 years, India might just be entering a home Test not as favourites. India - L W DIndia entered the first Test in Chennai with their confidence at its absolute zenith, but, as it turned out, they were found guilty of still being in the Brisbane hangover. A toothless performance with the ball was succeeded by an abomination of a first-innings effort with the bat and the two things combined to hand them their second defeat at home in seven years. Virat Kohli and the boys certainly have the quality to bounce back, but whether they will be physically and mentally up for the challenge remains to be seen.Key batsmenEngland - Joe RootIndia - Virat KohliVirat Kohli entering an already-formidable batting line-up was supposed to spell trouble for England, but an extremely nervous outing in the first inning - where he needed to cash in - meant that he barely hurt the Three Lions. After going century-less in the entirety of 2020, Kohli needed to go big in response to England’s 578 to keep India in the game but, unfortunately, he wasn’t able to do so. Both India and Kohli would, however, take heart from the right-hander’s showing in the second innings, where he looked in ominous touch for 103 balls before being castled by a Ben Stokes delivery that kept tantalizingly low. England - Jack LeachIn the span of two days, Jack Leach went from being a meme to a match-winner. At one stage in the first innings, when Pant was wreaking havoc, Leach threatened to finish with abominable figures but as soon as the southpaw departed, the left-armer turned into a completely different beast - not just in the first innings, but for the rest of the game. It was his 4/76 - notably the wicket of Pujara - which punctured the Indian batting line-up and the Somerset man is now making a habit of murdering teams on the final day. He now averages a remarkable 17.52 in the fourth innings, so, should the Chennai wicket in the second Test offer any turn, you bet this nerdy left-armer would be licking his lips to yet again run through the Indian batting. There were not many Indian players who, after the first Test, earned the right to walk with their head high, but Ravichandran Ashwin certainly was one. The first Test was as much Ashwin vs England as it was India vs England. Through some immeasurable graft - he bowled the most number of overs he ever has in a Test - and relentlessly consistent mastery, Ashwin kept India in the game single-handedly. He was duly rewarded for his efforts with a six-wicket haul, but so poor was the performance from his teammates that his toil ended up being rendered useless. Even if he’s only 70% fit, trust Ashwin to spin a web around the English batsmen come Saturday.Predicted XIEngland: Rory Burns, Dom Sibley, Dan Lawrence, Joe Root (c) Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes (wk) Dom Bess, Jofra Archer, Jack Leach, Stuart Broad.India:Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c) Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk),  Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Kuldeep YadavVenue: M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, ChennaiWhen to Watch: Feb 13, 9.30 AM ISTWhere to Watch: Star Sports Network and Hotstar (in India)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 | It was a crucial toss to lose; never seen an SG ball wear up this much, opines Ravichandran Ashwin
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Looking back at the Test’s proceedings, Ravichandran Ashwin opined that it was a crucial toss for the Indian team to lose while giving his impression over the state of the SG ball on day four. He also added that at one point during his partnership with Washington, they hoped to wipe the follow-on.It was indeed a memorable Test for Ravichandran Ashwin, who has played most of his cricket in this part of the country. In the first innings, he had bowled 55 overs, the most that he has bowled in an innings, picking up just three wickets. Meanwhile, in the second, he picked up six wickets in under 18 overs, showing the state of the pitch. After the end of fourth day’s play, Ashwin opined that it was a crucial toss to lose for the Indians while calling the state of the ‘SG’ ball as bizarre, with the red cherry tearing up quicker than the usual. While stating that it was a good batting track on the first two days, he insisted that a good fifth day could propel India to a famous victory.  “Look, personally when I saw the wicket, I knew it would be a good wicket to bat. It was sort of a crucial toss for us as it was a good batting wicket. On day one and two, there wasn’t much on offer, it was a good batting track. If we have a good fifth day, we can round it off and win the Test,” said Ashwin in the virtual press conference. "It could well be a combination of how hard the pitch was on the first two days. Even in the second innings, after the 35th-40th over, the seam started to sort of peel of. It was bizarre. I haven't seen an SG ball like that in the last so many years. But yeah, maybe it could be due to the pitch and hardness of it... But we will have an answer for it going through the series," he added.The Indian offie also insisted that he had his plans well set for English skipper Joe Root, who came out with a sweeping plan against the Indian spinners. He also pointed out that in the second innings, his ploy to sweep didn’t work out due to the slower nature of the wicket. “First, let me tell you, he (Root) was not sweeping a lot against me. We had plans in place for him off my bowling, where he didn’t get a lot of runs. In the second innings, he couldn’t get the same kind of runs, the pitch got slower and slower, which made him tough for him to score off the sweep.”On Ishant’s 300th Test wicket and 100th wicket in home Tests, Ashwin called the lanky pacer as one of the most hardworking people in the dressing room. “Look Ishant is one of the most hardworking people in the dressing room. Being that tall itself requires a lot of facets to be looking at. From dismissing Ricky Ponting to this, for a pacer to get 100 Test wickets in India is a big achievement. I can keep going on and compliment Ishant but he should go and pick more wickets, becoming a roadmap for the other pacers.”Recalling his partnership with fellow Tamil Nadu all-rounder Washington Sundar, Ashwin stated that they actually hoped to wipe down the follow-on and even get closer to their target. The off-spinner also called his dismissal as unfortunate, with the amount of bounce, more than he had faced before. He also called Washington, a quite special batsman and insisted that playing spin is one of the facets that they have developed playing cricket in Tamil Nadu. “We actually did believe that we could wipe down the follow-on and even get closer to their target, we just needed to pick our battles properly. For me, the ball bounced a bit too much. Playing spin is one facet of the game that players growing here will be good with, Washi is quite a special batsmen. He played really well and has been playing like for some time.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Absolutely love my art, want to keep bowling till I can, expresses Ravichandran Ashwin
By admin | | 0 Comments |


India's premier off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin had a great outing with the ball today and after that, he expressed how much he loves his art and wants to keep bowling till he can. He also backed England's decision not to give India the follow on as fresher the bowlers the better it is.Ravichandran Ashwin had a tough outing in the first innings of the ongoing Chepauk Test as he was burdened with an extra responsibility of also trying to control the flow of runs apart from lead spinner to take wickets in the absence of an accurate Ravindra Jadeja. But in the second innings, in favourable conditions, he made the full use of the turn and bounce on offer on day four and picked up six wickets to end the game with nine scalps. As a result, England got bundled out on 178 in their second innings leaving 420 to chase for India in their fourth innings. Speaking in the presser at the end of the day, the Tamil Nadu spinner asserted that he loves his art and wants to play as long as he can. “I have quite seen a few interesting observations about me bowling so many overs. When it comes to bowling, it is my joy that comes up when I bowl, I absolutely love my art. My body was fresh when I came out and bowled today, I just want to keep bowling till I can,” Ashwin told reporters in a virtual presser at the end of day four. England had the option of asking India to bat again after they got India all-out on 337 in response to England's 578 but they decided against it. Ashwin backed England's decision as he felt it was quite natural for them to do so given they would want to attack India with fresh bowlers.“Look, they had two options, either asked us to follow on or bat on, they wanted to give rest to their bowlers. That could have been the thinking behind their decision to bat. And fresh bowlers could make a huge difference, so that might have been the reasoning behind their decision which is fair and expected.”He also applauded the way England have been playing in the last couple of years and also praised the way the tourists have managed workl oad of their players. The Three Lions have adopted the policy of rest and rotation so that all their players stay fit even if it compromises the best XI.“Everywhere around the world, if you win the toss, you get an advantage. In this part of the world, last time around, they won the toss in Mohali and Mumbai, We expected them to play well, they have been playing well in the last two years. They have been managing workload and everything perfectly. It setups perfectly for the rest of the series.”Ishant Sharma today achieved the landmark of 300 Test wickets. The Indian offie said Ishant always carries a smile on his face, which is a good thing to see. “A story on Ishant Sharma? His biggest plus is he will have a smile always on his face. I went and talked to Ishant during the last few overs, where I had a chat with skipper Kohli. He was absolutely happy with the spinners bowling the last few overs on this surface.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Chepauk Day 4 Talking Points: Washington’s crazy potential, England’s clinical display and same old ‘SG’ ball
By admin | | 0 Comments |


England had another great day in the opening Test as they continued to dominate India in all departments of the game. Despite Sundar's wonderful 85*, England ended India's innings on 337 and then were quite proactive to score 178 on a tricky surface to leave the hosts with a record chase of 420.Washington Sundar's unflappable temperament Washington Sundar is an anomaly. Someone with as little experience as the left-hander in first-class cricket has no right to show so much maturity, compactness, a solid judgement of off-stump, ability to soak in pressure, hit elegant shots and all that at the age of 21, which is crazy, given how much he can develop in times to come. When he bats, one thing that is apparent is he can bat up the order than seven.One thing in common in the first three Test innings of Washington has been the pressure situations that he has been subjected to and how beautifully he has conquered them to prove a point. Pretty much like the Gabba Test, Washington arrived at the crease, when India needed a solid performance from him. They were 192 for 5 in response to England's massive 578. He started with some magnificent shots. But as soon as Rishabh Pant got out, he took the role of the senior man and batted with a lot of application to add 80 runs for the seventh wicket with Ashwin.He showcased discipline that was missing with most of the Indian batsmen, who had endured soft dismissals, all this in his second Test and only third innings. His judgement of the off-stump stood out whenever the pacers tried to test his technique. And against spin, he's master at work as such is the ease with which he milks the slower bowlers. He had endured a horrible time with the ball, but like a true all-rounder, he left behind a major impact with the willow in hand and if not for his well-made 85, India wouldn't have reached 337 from 225 for 6 given India's poor tail. India have found a solid talent in the all-rounder to invest in for future. England's clinical approach Swat-sweeping, slog-sweeping, switch-hitting, reverse-sweeps, flicks, England put an exhibition on a tricky fourth-day pitch as India opened the bowling with R Ashwin and Shahbaz Nadeem and even got the breakthrough on the first delivery of the English innings. It was as if the World Champion ODI team had turned up than the Test side as such was the audacity and attacking intent with which England batsmen countered Indian bowlers led by their skipper Joe Root who made a 32-ball-40. The pitch is such now that any ball can have your name written on it. The dismissals of Joe Root and Daniel Lawrence showed how difficult it is to bat on this wicket with invariable bounce on offer for pacers while spinners were getting good turn and bounce off the deck. There is a good length area too which explodes when the ball hits the deck there, all of which rings the alarm for batsmen.England, who were well ahead in-game with a big lead of 241, pretty well knew all they needed to do was to get to 150-175 and not 70-80 total to put India on to the back foot, which they duly did. They were disdainful on Nadeem as he wasn't allowed to settle in again and the tourists didn't even let Ashwin take a breather as Root again put up a sweep masterclass on display even though the offie was among wickets unexpectedly. Even in terms of bowling, after getting R Ashwin out, England didn't let Washington get away and took last three wickets for just 32 runs, which was worth gold given how complex it was supposed to bat in their second innings given the threat Indian bowlers possessed on a fourth day Chepauk wicket. Same old soft 'SG' ball and Kohli's tactics One of the overlooked things in this Test has been the use of a modified SG ball between India and England. There have been some complaints from senior Indian players in the past about the ball turning soft quite early with R Ashwin even stating that "The SG ball used to be top-notch, and you could bowl with it even after the 70th or 80th over. The seam used to be standing up strong and straight. But it is not the same anymore."In this Test SG ball with a pronounced seam, harder core and with a darker shade of red is being used but to no avail. The ball was expected to retain the hardness till 60th over but today, it went soft from the 11th over itself, maybe because of the dry nature of the Chepauk deck or reasons best known to the ball manufactures. Bowling in India has been a nightmare in comparison to bowling with the Dukes, or even the Kookaburra ball and it doesn't seem to be changing any soon.Virat Kohli was good with his captaincy today in terms of tactics and aggression but not starting with the Jasprit Bumrah who is tailor-made for exploiting the fourth-day Chepauk surface with invariable bounce was hard to comprehend even if we weigh up what Nadeem offered, extra bounce, and he returned sans a wicket, giving 23 runs in six overs. Kohli didn't bring Bumrah till the 22nd over, who got the danger Root early and troubled English batsmen a lot. Also, not giving the ball to Ashwin post-tea session early was surprising given the offie had already taken three wickets and looked the most dangerous alongside Bumrah. Also, Root was constantly targeting the vacant mid-wicket region by sweeping the bowlers, with Kohli slow to fill in the gap.Sloppy India India have overstepped the line too often in this Test. While England only bowled one no-ball in their innings, India delivered 20 no-balls in the first innings and 7 in the second, to end up with 27 no-balls. Also, India were quite slow in their over-rate today, which has been the case earlier too in the game and can prove deferential as World Test Championship points are docked for slow over-rate.  Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Why the Chennai Test has shown that India’s ‘Jaddu-obsession’ is unhealthy
By admin | | 0 Comments |


England won the toss in the first Test of a tour they were expected to lose 4-0 and batted and batted and batted - for 190 overs. And scored 578. Understandably, the Chepauk curator has received plenty of flack, but we look at why the first innings exposed a bigger issue at hand for the hosts.What’s the issue?India’s obsession to field a Ravindra Jadeja clone. Ever since India realized that Ravindra Jadeja’s batting was reliable enough for him to warrant a spot in the Top 7, they’ve deployed a five-bowler strategy. The wicket-keeper, Jadeja and Ashwin - in no particular order - slot in at 6, 7 and 8 respectively, giving the side the flexibility to play three more specialist bowlers pertinent to the conditions. In the absence of Jadeja in the first Test in Chennai, the management looked to replicate the same tactic by installing a Jadeja prototype but, erm, let’s say it did not go down too well. The bowling, ultimately, lacked bite and the hosts ended up conceding 578, with the fourth and the fifth bowlers - Sundar and Nadeem - returning combined figures of 2/265 off 70 overs. The wicket, indisputably, was flat, but the 190 overs demands introspection over India’s tactic. How is the Jaddu-obsession detrimental to the team?Logically, one would think playing five bowlers in comparison to four is bound to yield the side better results with the ball, but that is a bland assumption devoid of key intangibles. What ultimately matters is if the bowlers picked possess the quality to derail the opposition. In the absence of Jadeja, India were keen to blood-in a like-for-like replacement, hence the eagerness to field one of Washington Sundar or Axar Patel. Both Sundar and Axar are finger-spinners capable of batting at #7, and both offer the three-dimensionality that Jadeja brings to the table. But while it is true that they bring the same package as Jadeja, there is daylight in the quality of the primary skill (bowling, in this case) between Sundar/Axar and Jadeja. The Saurashtra all-rounder is often celebrated for his three-dimensionality, but people tend to conveniently forget that he is, behind Ashwin, the second-best spinner across the past decade. Completely keeping his batting aside, Jadeja averages 24.32 with the ball, and this number comes down to a ridiculous 21.06 in 33 Test matches at home. Just to put into perspective how good these numbers are, Ashwin, the greatest off-spinner since Muralitharan, averages two more (23.14) at home. By selecting a ‘Jadeja prototype’ India are fitting someone in the side who does the same things, albeit much worse, but are simply not doing what they should be doing: picking a spinner who offers the same threat with the ball. Sundar’s outing in the first innings is a classic case in point - he filled the Jadeja-shaped void in the side in terms of the package, yet ultimately failed at his primary job, which is to threaten with the ball. He is by no means to blame for it, for he’s far away from being a Test-level spinner, but him being picked to serve as a third spinner means that he needs to provide a cutting edge with the ball; and not just serve ‘handy’ owing to his package. This would also have held true to Axar had he been picked. Axar, too, is light-years away from being amongst the Top 5 spinners in the country and was, as revealed by Kohli himself, only considered because of India’s Jaddu obsession. This is not to deviate from the fact that India ultimately found themselves in the position they did because of the lacklustre display of the designated second spinner, Shahbaz Nadeem. Yet these kinds of situations are precisely why you pick a fifth bowler (in this case, a third spinner) - to make up even if one of the premier bowlers have an off-game. Nadeem had a performance to forget, yes, but it was exacerbated by the fact that Sundar was incapable of filling-in and masking it, ultimately defeating the purpose of having a fifth bowler. “This is just the three-spinners scenario; a Jadeja-prototype can still play if India field three pacers.”Unless the team plays in a SENA-like wicket which is a paradise for pacers, this statement won’t hold true. India, particularly of late, have been drifting towards accommodating three seamers at home but this does not change the fact that the key to success lies in the hands of the spinners. From January 1, 2015 to up until the start of the ongoing Test, Indian spinners had taken almost twice as many wickets (330) as the pacers (166) in home games. This emphasizes the importance of the role the second spinner has to play, even in a three-man pace attack.  A Jadeja-prototype might be a flexible option but that player will not be of great use to the side unless he is as good as Jadeja himself with the ball. Does it mean India should just pick their five best bowlers? This can, of course, always be experimented with, but it will leave the side with a worryingly long tail. For instance, as soon as Axar injured himself, India could have gone ahead with Kuldeep, Nadeem and Ashwin as their three spinners but that would have left them with no half-decent batsman after Pant. Ashwin had a wild day out in Sydney but in his last 17 Tests at home, he averages 11.93 with the bat with no fifty-plus scores. Hence they had to make a compromise, and it came in the form of them leaving out Kuldeep (you could argue the Nadeem selection also had some Jaddu-obsession attached to it, for he is also a left-armer). So, what is the solution?Simple: in the absence of Jadeja, India either need to revert back to a four-bowler + 1 batting all-rounder strategy or ensure that, barring Ashwin, the second spinner they pick is the best spinner at their disposal, treating the No.7 slot as an all-rounder. In Chennai, Kuldeep, despite being a bigger threat than Nadeem, was overlooked because he turned the ball the same way as both Ashwin and the Jaddu prototype Sundar; as it turned out, Sundar and Nadeem’s lack of dexterity made the decision look ridiculous. Cracks can be papered over on turning tracks but, as was the case in the first two days of Chennai, on flat wickets it will be skill - and not the package - which will help punch holes in the heart of the opposition. Particularly with India completely reverting to preparing ‘we-will-outbat-you’ kind of flat wickets, it would become increasingly difficult for the side to bowl quality oppositions out at home with just one world-class spinner.  A four-bowler + 1 batting all-rounder (who here replaces the Jaddu prototype) strategy is less-ideal but it would, nevertheless, solve any kind of concern with regards to a long tail and enable the skipper to field the second spinner simply based on merit, not worrying about the individual’s other credentials. With Pandya unfit to bowl and with Vihari nursing an injury, though, this option, one imagines, would not be feasible for the side in the last three Tests. Why the Jaddu-obsession is unhealthy in the long run For more than one reason, India’s obsession with finding the perfect like-for-like replacement for Jadeja is unhealthy. One, as previously discussed, is the compromise in the drop in quality of bowling but secondly, and most importantly, the long-term ramifications it could have on the kind of expectations the management have from spinners. The selections of Sundar and Axar now, and Jayant Yadav previously, are clear indications of the management’s affinity for slower bowlers who can contribute with the bat (largely because most of the seamers can’t hold the willow). “Bowling combination we’ll try to give us as many options as possible, along with guys having the ability to contribute with the bat. That’s been the pattern for success for us in home conditions over the last few years and that continues to be the case this time around as well. The combination we’ve played in the past where guys can bowl and bat is something that will be at the forefront of our plans,” Kohli had said a day before the commencement of the first Test.Grooming all-rounders is healthy but to discard spinners ‘only’ because they cannot contribute with the bat is preposterous.India, currently, have as many as two back-ups for Jadeja, but are at a point where they have little clue as to who their best spinner apart from Ashwin and Jadeja is. Kuldeep was supposed to be the answer but his progress has stalled, and this has a lot to do with the fact that he continues to be overlooked simply because he does not tick other boxes unrelated to his bowling. If India are to not find themselves in a dire situation post the Jaddu-Ash era, they need to start investing in their best spinners. And by investing, it means not only identifying who those players are, but giving them the opportunity to develop and learn their trade while the big fishes are still around, and not just throwing them in the deep end when the time arrives. As things stand, they are not doing it, and it could have long term consequences.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 | Chepauk Day 1 Talking Points: England’s solid opening, sweeping tactic and an Indian team caught off-guard
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Dom Sibley and Joe Root felt more like at home in a hot Chennai as they further turned up the heat than India who seemingly missed being in Australia as they suffered greatly on a flat deck. English openers set the tone for the day and after that, the team led by Root swept their way to success. Sibley-Burns and a solid opening standThe odds were stacked up against the opening pair of Dom Sibley and Rory Burns when they walked out to bat on day one of the Chepauk Test. The last 12 Tests in India had yielded 249 runs for visiting openers with an average of 10.3, highest stand of 32 and the last fifty partnership coming as long back as March 2017. Add to that the fact that England's first wicket had added 10, 3, 4, and 17 in the Sri Lanka series. It was considered as one of England's weakness.But the pair of Burns and Sibley put up a patience masterclass on a flat wicket. They were solid in their defense early on against a seasoned Ishant Sharma and a magnificent Jasprit Bumrah. As per CricViz, England's false shot percentage in the first ten overs was 7%, the lowest of a match since February 2009. But the trial by spin awaited them. There as well, they showcased the most important thing against spinners - decisive footwork. You don't want to be caught in between or picking the lengths poorly.The English openers were able to play off the back foot well and that helped them open up many areas to score for them. As a result, they put up a good 63-run-opening-stand. Rory Burns was coming off after missing the Sri Lanka Tests, but it didn't have even an iota of impact as he batted as solidly as ever. Sibley, who was horrible in the first three innings in Sri Lanka, also took from where he had left after a gritty display in the second innings of the last Test and combined in a great start for the visitors. Root-ed England sweeping their way to success Statistically, in the class of Ken Barrington, Geoff Boycott and Wally Hammond, Joe Root is one of greatest players of spin in English history that kick-started as long back as 1877. One of the hallmarks of Root's success in Sri Lanka was unleashing different types of sweeps as a bread and butter shot. As per CricViz, the English skipper who made 426 runs in two Tests in Sri Lanka, had played 53 and 52 sweeps in first and second Test respectively, most sweep shots since data has been recorded. Not for nothing, it's said that how a captain does, it rubs on the team. Today, we saw that the English team tried to model their game against spin using the Root way in a subtle manner if not more and tried sweeping more than we saw they did in Sri Lanka. Playing sweeps is one of the most common ways of countering turn and low bounce. Not only bowlers create doubts in the head of batsmen when they alter lengths but batsmen too, when they play sweeps or come down the track, they play with the head of spinners. There were two consecutive fours hit by Root of short balls in the 55th over that too off R Ashwin. He's a relentless bowler. But that's what Root had done to him having played a lot of sweeps.Rory Burns had also played a sweep shot though it was a risky shot against Ashwin but it was a clear show that the team was more than willing to follow in the footsteps of Root. Also, Dom Sibley was great in terms of using his feet against spin and also employing sweeps sometimes, if not many, exhibiting he can play the cross-batted shots and didn't let bowlers get stuck on a line and length. An out planned, tired Indian team not up for the challengeIndian team on the first day of the Chepauk Test was like a team or a group that turns up after a big success party to work. It can be complacency but given what transpired in Australia, India was not taking England lightly. So what went wrong? Firstly, a batting side won't get a better and flatter pitch to start a series than this. There was nothing for pacers or spinners and the heat only made it tougher for India as they looked out of depth and were going through motion once Root and Sibley started batting at their best. Dom Sibley has an unorthodox technique, and plays with a close face and gives an idea that he is the last one to spare anything straight or on the middle-leg-stump line. Now, on a flat pitch, India went for control rather than attack like in Australia. They kept bowling straight and on leg-stump to the English opener and he kept on cashing in, flicking the ball with ease. At one point, almost half of his runs had come off the flick shot with his control in the 90s. India missed a trick, especially spinners by not trying to make him drive the ball and their plan played to his strengths. For Joe Root, he simply put up a masterclass. But were India expecting any less after he was coming off century in each of the last two Tests with a prolific record in Asia? So, the question is why didn't India continue to persist with their plans against him once he got on a roll? Lack of conviction? Pretty much. Also were they short on plan B or C? Perhaps. Root toyed with Indian bowlers with impunity. And as the third-wicket partnership grew, India's fielding started getting poorer, shoulders started falling down, the body language was anything but a side believing it can take wickets or was even in the game fighting.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .
