Kohli vs Root vs Smith vs Williamson - Performance tab for WC 19'

Recommended Posts

Williamson is overrated. Most of his innings are against minnows or in home conditions. Taylor is better than him as overall odi batsman. Other than one or two innings i don't know what he has done enough to get mentioned with other 3.

All 4 batsmen in close proximity now. Virat has played one less game. 

 

Yesterday Virat played an innings where he was not a his best but still churned out runs at more than run a ball. Smith on the other hand started quite fluently at start against spinners however he lacked the decisive punch, got some fortunate boundaries before getting out.

VK felt sorry for Stewie and gave him an over of our homegrown pie-chucker Jadhav.

don't know why this  comparison among these 4 batsmen is specifically  given so much importance. Comparison is ok, but to give such importance to discrepancies in world cup performances is a  bit too much. To be more specific , for me, all I want  from Kohli  is to perform  brilliantly in this world cup. Whether any of the other 3 far outweighs  Kohli in performance does not matter because Kohli far outweighs each one of them over all. So to keep up his reputation as a one day great he needs to perform  brilliantly,That's all

 

Ponting even has a brilliant world cup  final knock but no body rates him better to Sachin or Lara.

VK has been quite good overall. avg of nearly 60 and a SR of slightly over 100. root is currently looking the best of the so-called fab four

Root probably played on the flattest surface and also backed by some great batsmen at the other end. He could go at his own pace. Others don't have that luxury

Time for Kohli to step up in the ultimate tournament. He can't be called better than Sachin if the latter is criticized for finals while Kohli isn't turning it on for major tournaments altogether.

Don't fall into that nonsense spread by sachin chamcha's

 

Kohli has performed many times during knockouts in ICC tournaments

Its a insult for a guy like Virat to be compared with that chicken choker

Both games india played against australia and pakistan were absolutely flat pitches with openers scoring 100.  Against south africa he failed where pitch was offering something.

No that was a nothing ball. Actual difficult period was when Rabada bowled.

Great Great batting performance from Kane Williamson. Take a bow you little bearded lion. Easily the captain's knock so far in this WC. Came in at a desperate time steadied the ship and took it to a good score. Deserved a 150.

Pretty clear after 4 ICC events since WC 2011, Kohli is a bottler

 

Williamson bossing this WC, playing according to situation and guiding his team to key victories with bat, sometimes ball and most importantly brain.

 

Kohli is a great batsmen, but in a World Cup, give me Williamson or Smith anyday over him. 

Three WCs now and not really racked up those big runs the other three are making.

 

Making him captain of ODI side was a big mistake.

 

Next IPL, this guy will be playing second fiddle to likes of Rohit Sharma, Williamson, Warner, Smith, Pant, Iyer.

He already is as a captain. Losing is acceptable but even in RCB Nehra was running like a headless chicken and shouting instructions in the final over where he was just standing clueless. Now his cluelessness is not acceptable

Even though his innings have been slow but that has helped nz win matches so till now he has proven me wrong and i am happy for him as well.

My Bet on SMITH- Not in terms of runs but influence and quality of innings matter.

 

ROOT out of equation due to England pitches

 

now look into SMITH vs Kohli vs WIlliamson

Surpassed when it matters. Predicted long back

So how much is the final tally for Smith and Kohli???

 

Root and Williamson still have one more game!!

 

It's fair enough to say Williamson had more impact on his team performances than the remaining three in comparison?

Along with his batting his captaincy also has made a difference??

True williamson played with weaker batting lineup and had more responsibility on him to perform in every single match. Root had many other batsman around himself.

I will update the table post the finals but  Williamson is leading the battle comprehensively. Root has scored similar amount of runs but he has a better batting attack to fall back upon. Lets see who plays major role between the two in the finals and wins this battle of numero uno.

 

Virat has been the most disappointing, he never looked like the number one batsman in the world.

Williamson miles ahead than all 3

he is technically the most purest of the big 4 and a big favourite of mine, but I feel that he is not "miles ahead". Smith is slightly better than him in Tests, Root arguably in ODIs (because of that extra gears he has), and Rat in T20s (incl. even the T20 WCs).
