Why can't our stars produce (or even fluke) innings like Blackwood?

Recommended Posts

1. Modern Indian batsmen don’t have the mindset or skill to dig in and play out the day. 
 

2. no financial incentive for player to skip IPL and play county before the Tour. Likewise no financial incentive for BCCI to start preparations for this tour with a month of acclimatisation by playing county teams. They would rather squeeze in a ODI series with SL to make more money 

 

3. No repercussions for ‘star batsmen’ for repeated overseas failure. They are more interested in sight seeing and shopping instead of practicing their socks off for a important tour.

 

4. Indian public quickly forgets SENA test thrashings when LOI starts.

The issue with our "stars" could be that they are too stat focused. They play to get to their 50-100 and once they get there, they think the "goal" is achieved 

 

Recently, many of our best wins/performances have come from the likes of Sehwag (Pak and SL), Pujara (Eng and Aus), Laxman (SL), and Pandya (as mentioned earlier), who are not too stats focused

Indian star shits in their pants even if target is 160 even against sl. I remember so many chases in past 2 years where target was below 240 and we bottled it up. Same story in both test and odi. As soon as pressure build up our mega star feels stomach upset.

please,blackwood  is not a good player, he was so lucky this  inning. 

You make up your own luck. He tried to play assertively and luck went his way. You cannot denigrate his match winning innings by invoking luck. The so called no.1 batsman in all formats couldn't do that even once in numerous attempts.

Even for fluke knock you need balls. Against SL and BD (that too only in meaningless bilaterals) our maharathis have balls the size of watermelons, what happens in crunch matches and 4th innings chases is that those watermelons shrink to the size of raisins.
