Is batting approach in T20s changing?

Recommended Posts

Have seen a lot of players slow down once they play 50+ balls and fail to pick up the scoring. For e.g.:

 

  • KL vs MI (was lucky that Pollard brought in Pandya). Was sluggish till that point 
  • Universe Boss vs RCB 
  • de Kock vs RR 
  • and so on 

 

If that is the case,

 

a) the pitches at many of the venues could be slowing down as the tourney progresses, so scoring rate in the first 10 overs is important. Teams should make more efforts to get to 100+ in the first 10 

b) On good batting wickets, ideally, unlike what is conventionally thought, you do not want the batsman to keep carrying on unless he can get the big hits going. But you want more batsmen in the 11 that can play 25 balls or so consistently at a high SR .... or continue to push on, so if they have played around 60 balls for e.g., they are 100+ or so 

 

Discuss.

Also use of good leg spinners from 10 to 15 overs making it difficult, nearly every IPL team have at least one decent leggie with good control and good googly.

Therefore, even set batsmen who continuously attacks a leggie will eventually get outfoxed by the leggie

 

The days of Amit Mishra's 2 for 60 are gone :lol:

 

nowadays in IPL most leggies rarely concede more than 35 and always take 1 or 2 wkts

Speaking of leggies, what happened to multiple IPL winner Karn Sharma? Is he injured this year?
