Pujara surprised me by religiously adhering to ‘bat long and bat slow’ approach, reveals Pat Cummins
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Pat Cummins revealed that he expected Cheteshwar Pujara to unsettle the bowlers by scoring a bit more quickly but admitted that he was surprised by how religiously the right-hander stuck to his approach. Cummins added that, for a bowler, there are pros and cons in bowling to a defensive player.After he scored three tons and served as a literal wall in the 2018/19 Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Australia, in the initial part of the 2020/21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy, found a way to keep Cheteshwar Pujara ‘quiet’ but though the runs dried, they were not able to stop him from spending time at the crease and tiring the bowlers.Pujara batted at a snail-like pace everytime he strode out to bat, and his approach in the first innings of the Sydney Test, in particular, came under fire from fans and experts, who believed the right-hander was digging a grave by not upping the scoring rate. Yet unphased by the criticism, Pujara, remarkably, batted at an even slower pace as the series progressed, eventually finishing with a SR of 29.20, by some distance the slowest amongst all specialist batters in the series.Through the approach, Pujara sucked the energy out of the Australian seamers and none knows it better than Pat Cummins, who toiled harder than any other bowler in the series. Reflecting on the 2020/21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Cummins revealed that he and the other Australian bowlers expected Pujara to try and put pressure on them by taking risks, but admitted that they were outwitted by the patience of the Saurashtra man.“It's interesting. After the first two games, in some ways, I thought he might have had to adapt to try to take the game on a little bit more and put pressure back on the bowlers. But if anything, he went the other way. He went, "No, I know my game so well, I'm going to just bat and bat and scoring will take care of itself" - whether it's down the other end or later in his innings,” Cummins told ESPN Cricinfo.“Maybe we set some tighter fields than we did a couple of years ago, but I felt like a lot of the time he was there just to face out the tough spells, bat and bat and bat, and in some ways selflessly take some overs out of the bowlers and the ball, with the hope that the lower middle order can cash in even if he doesn't.”Why Pujara’s approach irked many was because they felt the No.3 batsman, by adhering to a full-on defensive approach, was letting the bowlers grow in confidence by allowing them to bowl where they want. Cummins revealed that bowling to a batsman like Pujara is a double-edged sword - you have a bigger margin for error but, at the same time, you could end up bowling a day full of overs without any rewards.“I'd say in some ways it's true. With someone who doesn't look to take the game on, you feel like you can experiment a little bit more, maybe be a little more aggressive in bowling a touch fuller, try to swing the ball, play around with your crease position, knowing that if you're slightly off you're not going to get belted for four like you might against another batsman. “But on the flip side, if the batter's good enough to get through that and they can bat and bat, well it doesn't really matter what you bowl at them, you're going to have to bowl lots of overs. It really comes down to the fact that if he doesn't bat lots of time you feel great and love bowling to him. If he does, you go, okay, well, his method is obviously working.”Pujara scored 271 runs in the series, but none were more impressive than the 56 he accumulated in the final day of the Brisbane Test, where he refused to get out despite copping blows left, right and center. Cummins, who put in a shift and a half on that final day, revealed that he and his teammates expected Pujara to err after getting hit, but admitted that the resilience and the concentration powers of Pujara took them aback.“I'm not sure you change how you bowl, but it's incredibly rare that someone gets hit on his body and wears so many bruises without trying something. You hope if you keep doing that, maybe they're going to try to put their gloves up and you're going to get a catch that way, but he really stuck to his processes. It makes it hard if you know that short ball is there either to catch the gloves or to get them trying to hook. “You feel like you're getting closer to a wicket each time they cop a bruise, and like they're going to have to change their game and start fending or take the game on a bit more. So for someone to stay with their process the whole time, it does take the sting out of that short ball a bit.”One of Pujara’s biggest strengths is his soft hands, which helps him evade nicking the ball to the slip cordon, and the 32-year-old frustrated the Aussies throughout the course of the series by making the ball drop short of the slip cordon. Cummins claimed that Pujara has ‘pillow-like’ soft-hands and insisted that nicks from his bat falling short of the slip cordon is generally down to skill and not luck.“Oh absolutely, it's like a pillow. In the first innings at the Gabba, my first ball to him was a genuine nick. The ball before, I'd nicked off Shubman Gill and it was caught by Smithy above his head, and then the next ball bounced in front of Smithy. Just soft hands, plays it incredibly late, you can see why someone like that is so hard to dislodge, because there aren't edges flying to the slip cordon. He tries to put all the odds in his favour. “I think we've played long enough to know it's more skill than luck. But it does make you change, the slips do have to come forward a couple of steps because you aren't going to get those hard hands [where the ball flies] off the bat. It can be frustrating sometimes when you've got a brand new ball and it's still not carrying.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

What if Wednesday | What if England had not recalled Joe Root after Ashes 2013/14
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After he accumulated just 192 runs across the first four Tests of Ashes 2013/14, England, in Sydney, did the unthinkable and dropped Joe Root. He was, however, immediately recalled and Root has since gone on to become one of England’s greatest. But what if the Yorkshireman never received the recall?The shock axe came as a blessing for Root, who has since averaged 52.81 in Test cricket. As things stand, he is in line to become the greatest English cricketer of all time. But what if the selectors had decided against giving the golden boy of English cricket an immediate recall?The wounds of the 5-0 drubbing are still fresh in the minds of the English selectors who, ahead of home Tests against Sri Lanka and India, are keen to blood fresh faces. Root, they feel, needs to work on his technique in first-class cricket and thus they draft in Middlesex’s Sam Robson, who’d struck a stunning 1180 runs in the 2013 county season. But Robson isn’t the only fresh face that is introduced as the selectors also award call-ups to 23-year-old James Vince and 37-year-old Darren Stevens, both of whom had set the Division 2 ablaze. Robson is expected to get the nod for the first Test of the summer at Lord’s but, instead, much to the bemusement of many, the management hand debuts to both Vince and Stevens. Vince’s selection, in particular, raises eyebrows but the youngster squashes doubts in trademark swashbuckling fashion, smashing a whirlwind double-ton in his first-ever knock at the highest level. Stevens’ average of 62 in the 2013 county season does not reflect in his maiden outing with the bat, but he slaughters the Lankans through some unplayable military medium bowling to help England go 1-0 up in the series. But despite running through the Lankans with the ball in match one, it is Stevens’ showing with the bat in match two that helps England pocket the series. Needing to survive 117 overs in the fourth innings to save the game and win the series, England are in tatters at 57/5, but, acting as a lone warrior, Stevens bats with the tail and notches up a maiden Test century to keep the Lankan bowlers at bay. The 37-year-old faces a remarkable 338 balls for his 103* and, together with Chris Jordan and Stuart Broad, bats out the final day to seal the series for the Three Lions. Stevens’ showing with bat and ball locks his place in the England XI for the five-Test series against India but he won’t be the only all-rounder in action for the Three Lions as the selectors also recall Ben Stokes, who they’ve zeroed in on as their next project. The India series is seen by many as a direct H2H battle between youth icon Stokes and ‘dad’ Stevens but the youngster sabotages the battle on his own as, after three consecutive ducks, he finds himself out of the side. The veteran, in contrast, averages 18.34 with the ball and 42.80 with the bat and is named the Man of the Series for helping England win 4-0. But it is not just England who Stevens ended up helping in the series. In the third Test in Southampton, the 37-year-old, fielding at second slip, put down the catch of Virat Kohli off the bowling of James Anderson and the reprieve enabled the Indian superstar to leave a mark on English soil. After registering scores of 1, 28, 25 and 0 in the first four knocks in the series, the Stevens drop turned around the fortunes of Kohli, who eventually finished the series with an average of 40.50.But while Stevens single-handedly resurrected the career of one Indian superstar, he also, contrastingly, destroyed the career of another. Across 10 innings in the five-Test series, the 37-year-old dismissed Ajinkya Rahane 8 times, making dismissing the Mumbaikar a mere formality. “c Cook b Stevens” ended up being a recurring theme in the entire series and Rahane, flabbergastingly, notched up just 106 runs in 5 Tests, letting his career average drop to a sorrow-looking 26.16.Rahane’s confidence shooting to rock-bottom leaves the Indian selectors with no option but to axe the 26-year-old for the Border Gavaskar Trophy, but the drop opens the door for Kedar Jadhav. With 1,223 runs at a ridiculously high average of 87.35, Jadhav had ended the 2013/14 Ranji Trophy as the highest run-getter, and the Maharashtra man instantly brings the prolific form to international cricket. Jadhav scores a ton in his very first knock in Test cricket in the first innings of Adelaide, but it is his 63* in the second dig which makes him an overnight cult hero. The 29-year-old injects momentum into the chase of 364 post-Murali Vijay’s dismissal, and, post the dismissal of Kohli, sees the side home with the help of fellow debutant Karn Sharma to help India achieve the impossible. A loss in the very next Test in Brisbane threatens to undo Jadhav’s heroics, but his efforts do not go in vain as India end up retaining the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after drawing the series 1-1. After manhandling Lyon, Jadhav develops the reputation of being a ‘good’ player of spin, but in Sri Lanka, the 29-year-old goes from ‘good’ to ‘great’. Chasing a daunting 176 on Day 5 on a Galle wicket that is spitting venom, India’s top-order falls like a pack of cards, but Jadhav stays afloat. Fighting a lone battle, he sweeps, sweeps and sweeps his way to glory and incredibly, against all odds, stitches a 62-run stand for the 9th wicket alongside Amit Mishra to steer India over the line and hand Virat Kohli his Test victory as a full-time skipper. More dominant performances, including twin centuries in Delhi versus South Africa, follow from the bat of Jadhav, who with 1000 runs in 15 innings becomes the fastest Indian since Vinod Kambli to get to four figures. With four tons and an average of 88.20, the Maharashtra man is flying high and he is duly rewarded for his ludicrous start to Test cricket by being named the vice-captain of India’s Test side. Jadhav’s first assignment as the deputy to Kohli is the five-Test series at home to England, but, to his utter horror, the first Test in Rajkot turns out to be a match to forget for the 30-year-old. England find themselves in pole position courtesy two 150-run stands in the same game from the duo of Alastair Cook and James Vince, but needing to negate just 53 overs in the final day to salvage a draw, disaster strikes for India. At 71/3, needing to see off just 20 more overs, with Kohli and Jadhav in the middle, the hosts think they are safe, but a tragic mix-up between the two batsmen results in the departure of the skipper. The vice-skipper perishes the very next over and the back-to-back strikes opens the door for Adil Rashid, who runs through the lower-order to help England script an improbable victory.  A double century at the Wankhede from Kohli helps India get back on level terms, and the series goes down to the wire, with both teams having won one Test each heading into the finale in Chennai.Centuries from James Vince and 40-year-old Darren Stevens, who prior to the game announced he would be retiring after this Test, helps England post a gigantic 477 on the board but while the visitors think they’ve batted India out of the game, a certain Mumbaikar making his comeback to the Test side proves them wrong and brings them down to their knees. Two years after being humiliated by the Three Lions, Rahane marks his return to the longest format with a stunning triple century, and completes his revenge by taking 28 runs off the final over of the career of Stevens. This is not the only win in a series decider India pull off against the odds, though, as, four months later, they record an equally absurd victory. With skipper Virat Kohli ruled out with injury, the Aussies, after salvaging an improbable draw in Ranchi, are deemed heavy favourites to win the series in Dharamsala, but that isn’t to be. Jadhav, captaining the country for the first time in his career, marshalls the troops to perfection and seals a 2-1 series win over arch-rivals Australia to send India atop the ICC Test rankings. The series loss to India shatters Aussie hearts, but the already-shattered hearts are cut into pieces 8 months later. For, propelled by career-defining performances from the returning duo of Joe Root and Ben Stokes, the Three Lions retain the urn on Aussie soil for the second time in seven years. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Available for IPL but dream is ultimately to get back to red-ball cricket, reveals Jhye Richardson
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Australia’s Jhye Richardson, who ended BBL 2020/21 as the highest wicket-taker, confirmed that he has made himself available for IPL 2021 but insisted that ultimately he wants to rekindle red-ball aspirations. Richardson is set to spearhead the Aussie attack in the forthcoming T20Is vs New Zealand.After catapulting to fame in 2019 by dismissing Virat Kohli thrice in three games, Jhye Richardson spent no less than 18 months in the sidelines owing to a dodgy shoulder, but the youngster marked his ‘proper’ return to cricket in style. With 29 wickets in 17 innings, Richardson finished as the highest wicket-taker of the 2020/21 Big Bash League and was duly rewarded for the same by being named in Australia’s T20I tour of New Zealand.Many, however, including former Aussie skipper Ricky Ponting, believed that the 24-year-old should be rocketed straight back into the Test side. Richardson made his Test debut in 2019 versus Sri Lanka and impressed, picking 6 wickets at an average of 20.50, but has since not been able to find his way back into the side owing to fitness.Ahead of the five T20Is versus New Zealand, Richardson admitted that ultimately, fitness pertaining, he would love to get back to playing long-form cricket, but confirmed that, for now, he has made himself available for the IPL. The 2021 edition of the IPL is set to clash with the Sheffield Shield season.“I have put my hand up for the IPL, but I have confidence in myself to be able to play red-ball cricket,” Richardson told ESPN Cricinfo.“I think a really good test of that was our back-to-back games, albeit only four overs a game, but I think from a back-to-back perspective trying to get up and go again and test how my shoulder was, it was completely fine. Test cricket is always the dream, that would always be the ideal, and I'd love to get back and play Shield cricket for WA as well, that would be really exciting."It was not long ago that Richardson, alongside Pat Cummins, was spearheading Australia’s attack in ODI cricket and was in line to play both the 2019 World Cup and the Ashes, but a tragic dislocation of the shoulder put an abrupt halt to the youngster’s career. A setback in rehab meant that he also barely played cricket in 2020, and it is only now, two years post the shoulder dislocation, that he is finding his way back into the game.Richardson admitted that the spell on the sidelines was tough, but insisted that, for him, it was all about enjoying his cricket. The 24-year-old also claimed that he has time and age on his side, despite already missing two years of cricket."It's been a little bit tough, but the reassurance there is that I've been there once, there's no reason for me to no try and get back there again. That's the way I think about it anyway, the opportunity is still going to be there, I'm still only 24 years old so there's plenty of time, it's just about concentrating on what's happening at that particular moment, whether I'm playing for WA or the Scorchers and then whatever happens after that, if I get picked for Australia that's a bonus.""For me it comes back to enjoying playing cricket, because if I'm not enjoying it then I'm obviously doing something wrong. It's been difficult dealing with such a big injury as well, but the positive now is I'm back on an Australian tour, which I'm really excited for and that positive out of all of it makes the whole road to recovery worth it. All of it's been difficult. The initial injury that happened in the UAE probably didn't hit me as soon as I thought it would."I was optimistic with the World Cup not too long after that and the discussion being trying to get up for that, things stayed relatively positive. Something that's helped is there was always something around the corner to aim for, and then every time you get shut down from that or not make that [goal], it sort of chips away at you that little bit more. It's been tough at times, but to be able to come back and play this BBL and have such a good tournament, to then get picked in the Australian team, it makes everything worth it. So super happy to be back."Australia's five-T20I series will commence on February 22 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

VIDEO | ‘All-rounder’ Tim Paine rolls his golden arm over to claim wicket in Tasmania Premier League
By admin | | 0 Comments |


In just over a month we’ve seen India and West Indies script history at the Gabba and Chattogram respectively, but Tim Paine, today, might have eclipsed both those achievements. The Aussie skipper casually sent down some filthy off-spin and managed to dismiss Hurricanes’, Thomas Rogers.Tim Paine has been in the firing line of late and, in a way, he has no one but himself to blame for it. He opened his mouth with ‘See you at the Gabba mate’ comment - which has since become infamous - and also endured a horror tour behind the wickets. He ensured that he will be known as the Aussie captain who lost twice in two years to India on home soil and two weeks ago, even got mocked for carrying drinks for Hobart Hurricanes. So today, the Aussie Test skipper unwinded by playing some good ol’ club cricket. Paine represented ‘University of Tasmania’ in a Cricket Tasmania Premier League game versus North Hobart and enjoyed himself. Paine did not have a great outing with the bat, scoring 9 (13) opening the batting, but the 36-year-old, regardless, made the headlines. No, not because he ran his mouth. You wouldn’t believe it, but yes, Paine became an overnight star for his bowling shenanigans. The Aussie skipper, remarkably, took the new ball for his side and started off with inswinging trundlers. His radar was off, for most of the deliveries drifted towards the pads, but, nevertheless, the ‘talent’ was evident. But while seam bowling was fun, it was the genius move to shift to off-spin that yielded Paine rewards. He had to wait till his 10th over but just as his spell was about to come to an end, Paine struck. Coming around the wicket, the Aussie Test skipper, on the 57th delivery of his spell, delivered a rank short one that turned away from the batsman Thomas Rogers. It was the kind of delivery which any batsman would want to dispatch out of the ground and so, as soon as he saw how bad it was, Rogers went for a wild hoick towards mid-wicket. However, to his dismay, the Hurricanes man did not connect the hit cleanly and instead ended up sending the ball straight to the hands of the fielder at long-on. Thanks to the botched hit, Paine had a wicket to his name and the Aussie skipper, who could not believe his own luck, put his hands up in the air to celebrate. Beware, folks. There is a new all-rounder in town. Watch the video here: PAINE HAS A WICKET!

Overreaction Monday ft. Pant’s nervous nineties, Sachin Jr. in IPL and the Chepauk curator
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Day 4 of the India-England Test going on has meant that Monday has become a bearable day but, let’s be honest, the first day of the week always tends to suck, doesn’t it? We’ve tried to get over the blues by delving into some rather interesting mob opinion, including why Pant is not doing enough.Steve Smith bags the Allan Border Medal for the third time On Saturday, Steve Smith was declared the winner of the Allan Border Medal for the 2020-2021 season, with him pipping Pat Cummins by 12 votes. SC Take: Steve Smith winning the Allan Border Medal - i.e. being crowned the best player in Australia - seems equivalent to water being wet etc. but while this might have held true any other year, this year, however, it can’t be disputed that Pat Cummins was robbed of the award. Smith won the ‘ODI cricketer of the year’ award and that’s OK. He was exceptional right from the start of 2020 and capped it off with those twin 60-ball tons versus India. He deserved it. But to win the Allan Border Medal? Over Cummins? Ridiculous. 68% of all runs he scored in the voting period came in the SCG Test alone, and, barring that, he made no meaningful contributions in the longer format. What Cummins did in ODIs in the voting period - 15 wickets in 11 games - was far greater than what Smith managed to do in whites. But the real issue is why even bother awarding the AB Medal in a year where just four Tests were played? The disparity in the number of games played - ODIs and Tests - always meant that the player who dominated in limited-overs was going to be given precedence. In a year where just four Tests were played, the AB Medal is nothing but a mere extension of the “ODI cricketer of the year” award. Little surprise that Smith ended up winning both. The pre-IPL-auction shenanigansLeaks from player registrations for IPL 2021 auction have emerged and well, unsurprisingly, people have lost their mind - already.SC Take: There are times in the year when even the sanest of men turn into absolute maniacs and the fortnight prior to the IPL auction is one such phase. A couple of days ago, the list of players who have registered for the forthcoming auction emerged and people have started losing their mind already. There have been quite a few interesting opinions, so let's traverse through them. The first is the ‘common man’ on Twitter and Facebook being outraged over Arjun Tendulkar enrolling his name in the auction. You know, ‘nepotism bad noooooo’ and all that. It is truly absurd that people will not even let that poor lad register his name in the auction with peace - and that too for just 20 lakh. Gosh. He obviously is now officially a domestic cricketer (having played in SMAT) and he has EVERY RIGHT to enrol his name in the auction, like any other cricketer. When THIS guy has played in the IPL, is it a crime if Arjun - a proper professional cricketer - registers his name? Duh.Secondly, we have the annual meltdown over ‘base prices’. Kedar Jadhav has set his base price at 2 crore, and many cannot digest it. But really, why would he lower their price though? He is an IPL veteran and regardless of how bad he fared last year, he ‘could’ be an asset at INR 2 crore for any other side. He was on 8.40 crore for years, so obviously he’s going to look at earning at least 2 crore. And lastly, we have the Sreesanth discourse. Here it is two extremes - one lot which thinks he will invite no bidders and the other, which feels he’ll be a red-hot property. Unfortunately, things are not that ‘black and white’ in cricket - more so in life - so yeah, don’t be surprised if he’s just picked up for his base price or something. Rishabh Pant - how dare you score only 90?Rishabh Pant, on Sunday, was dismissed in the 90s yet again, but the cricketing fraternity is upset that he is not doing more.SC Take: Look, you can understand why this criticism exists in the first place. People are well aware of Pant’s batting talent so they think that he has it in him to score 150s and 200s. And this viewpoint is fine. But it is important to understand that he is, at the end of the day, a wicket-keeper batsman. He is not a specialist batsman. We need to tone down our expectations. The fact is that wicket-keepers, no matter how talented they are with the bat, should not be expected to be prolific. They should not be put under pressure to become run-machines.An impact is what they’re supposed to create and Pant is doing a job and a half right now. Even the greatest wicket-keeper batsman of all time, Adam Gilchrist, posted just three 150+ scores in his 96-Test career, and a remarkably talented batsman like Rizwan brought up his maiden Test ton only yesterday. Quinton de Kock has only 5 tons in Tests and no scores over 130. The fact that Pant is averaging 45 in Tests in itself is outrageous and we should be content with his returns. Why Pant is bearing the brunt is because of the ineptness of India’s #3 and #5 to score big. Pujara has not brought up three-figures at home in his last 13 innings and Rahane has only ever scored 90 or more at home 4 times (in 43 innings), which is remarkably just once more than Pant. Chastise them for not doing their job, not Pant for over-delivering. Fire the Chepauk curatorFans want the curator for the first Test between India and England to be fired because he prepared the worst pitch to have ever existed. SC Take: There is this dialogue from a Tamil film which goes, “Unaku vandha ratham, enaku vandha thakkali chutney ah?”. Translating it wouldn’t make sense but it basically refers to double standards. The aforementioned dialogue would hold true right now, to the Indian fans berating the curator. Y’all are just showcasing your double-standards.The fact is that every Indian pitch over the last four years has exactly been like this Chennai wicket, if not even flatter. In 2019 vs South Africa, India posted first innings scores of 502, 601 and 497. South Africa even responded with 431 in one of those games. I wonder why there were no complaints back then. Because India won, eh? Indian fans, you understandably have been taken aback by an opposition batting for 190 overs, but just because India did not win the toss and bat first - like they usually do - does not mean you blame the poor curator - for producing a proper Indian wicket. Instead, blame Virat for not winning the toss. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

AUS vs NZ | Aaron Finch confirms Josh Philippe’s debut in New Zealand T20I series
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Ahead of Australia’s full-fledged five-match T20I series against New Zealand, skipper Aaron Finch has confirmed that Josh Phillippe would make his debut at the top of the order. Finch also confirmed that the top-order setup would be the trio of Finch, Matthew Wade and Philippe himself.During the last two years, Josh Philippe has not just banged at the door but also broke it to force a place in the Australian squad for the five-match T20I series against New Zealand, which begins later this month. The Sydney Sixers’ star fellow narrowly short behind teammate James Vince and Thunder’s Alex Hales on the list of top run-scorers, with 508 runs this season. While he found a place for himself in the squad for the England tour, he never made his debut during the series. However, this time around, against New Zealand, barring any last-minute hiccups, Australian skipper Aaron Finch has confirmed that Josh Philippe would make his debut for the Kangaroos at the top of the order. Alongside that, he also insisted that the top three would be Matthew Wade, Philippe and himself. "The top three will be Wade, Philippe and myself. Maxi (Maxwell) and Stoin (Stoinis), four and five, around that area. It's pretty simple I'd imagine. When you look at the squad list, Josh Philippe has been in great nick and it's great to see him playing well,” Finch said, reported Cricbuzz.“Matty Wade, we know how dynamic he is along with Maxi. We're going to be flexible with that top order as well. If that means Wadey or myself or Josh, whoever bats at three, it'll be a great opportunity," he added.Finch, who was also Philippe’s teammate during the pair’s stint in the Indian Premier League for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), stated that he’s got all the shots needed. He also insisted that Philippe has taken his game to another level, which has helped him in this edition of the BBL. "He's someone who has obviously got all the shots but he's starting to get to that point of his career - and I think a lot of that was on the back of having a couple of months of IPL where he spent a lot of time with AB (de Villers) and Virat (Kohli) talking about batting with myself (as well) - he's taken his game to a new level because he's just getting past that period when he's not hitting them well.”While he not only admired the right-hander’s ability to take the attack to the opposition, he also was of high praise of the youngster taking his time during tough situations. "When he's playing well it's lights out, it's brilliant. But just those days when he's not feeling 100 per cent, he's getting through that little danger period and still having a big impact on the game which I think is so important in T20."Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Justin has done a terrific job over the last couple of years, claims Steve Smith
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Steve Smith has backed an underfire Justin Langer and stated that the Australian coach always pushes the players to get the best out of them which has worked wonders in the last couple of years. Recently, there were reports that few Australian players were not happy about Langer's intense approach.After Australia suffer a shambolic 2-1 loss to a depleted Indian side, the dressing room was not a happy place to be. Anyone with the slightest understanding of Justin Langer's managerial style, it was a confirmed notion that he was really grumpy which came through a report on the Sydney Morning Herald. The publication reported that a few players were not happy with Langer's intense approach and repeated intervention during the game, which Langer denied first.However, he has got the support of Tim Paine first and now Steve Smith who stated that Langer has his full-backing especially after what he has done over the last few years. Smith further stated that Langer always wants the best from his Australian cricketers."I think even if you speak to Justin, you want to be improving all the time as a coach or as a player, so of course there are things you can always get better at," Smith said in an online press conference."One thing that hasn't been spoken a lot about is how tough a job it is to coach an international team, particularly in the circumstances we've been in when we've been in bubbles for long periods of time."But Justin's always working hard, trying to improve and get better and we've had conversations over the last two weeks since we've finished and he's always trying to get better and better and that's all you can ask from your coach."Smith has been the fulcrum of the Test side for over half a decade now and one of the major reasons behind the same is his own unique approach and technique. With a homegrown technique, he has conquered the world and he admitted that Langer has given him a free hand to experiment."Justin's actually said about me before he doesn't try and coach me too much. Only every now and again he'll say something particularly about the energy in my legs and tell me to have a bit more energy and that helps me move my feet a bit better and get going. He kind of just lets me go about my business and do what I need to do."But he's great around the group, he's always improving and wants to get better and wants the feedback from the players, and I think that's really important as a coach. And sometimes it can be difficult to get that feedback. You always want to get better, you always want to learn on the job and I think he does that as well as anyone," he added.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .
