India while batting first in T20Is in 2022

Recommended Posts

I like this idea of rotating the top order slots and even openers.  Matchups and planning for them is becoming so important in these short T20 games, and its one of Indian team's strengths that we have so many quality batsmen who are capable of batting in the top order.  By continuing to 'rotate' the batsmen in these slots, we are not only giving them good opportunities, but we are creating options for the team in the WC, to lineup a matchup in our favor for the crucial power play overs.   And making it that much harder for the opposition to sit and plan against us.  Because they may plan for Rishabh to open the batting and have to deal with Surya instead.  This flexibility is a good thing.  And reinforces unselfishness in the batsmen's attitudes.  Dravid should be credited with this.

I think for the first time we look like we are seriously planning to win an LOI event for t20.

It is good to perform a a group versus few individuals through stats padding 

 

In T20s, you need 3-4 out of 7-8 batsmen to click. If you can’t fire, get out of the way as someone else can have a better day

 

Of course, those used to batsmen stats padding in bilaterals (and feeling comfortable with wkts not falling even at the cost for a low RR in first 10-15 overs) may take some time to understand this (or be happy when Rohit-KL-Kohli bat in their usual way)

Very True.  We are not really appreciating the fact  that even after 4-5 core players missing we do not feel a huge difference in team performance . One should notice in 90s &2000s  if couple of core players were out of the side , team strength going down and replacements were so downgrade.  Surya experiment is not bad one too. Guy hits at unexpected areas and good at using pace of the ball. Whips deliveries from the stumps  which for others  would be good ball . Drawback - Looks troubled when pacy deliveries rising around off stump. but worth giving a try. If he stays for 5-6 overs , i think India would have used the PP well .Risky shots but impactful..

The format requires additional runs while batting first plus the change in batting approach. Rohit does mention winning trophies is important but this change is to balance the pressure across the batting line up and play skilled people who can take on the bowlers and not defend them out.

So far good but will believe this when Rohit and Kohli bat outside top 3.

Unfortunately, one of Rohit and Kohli getting rest consistently played its part. If by chance, he get to bat together in same innings, the scoring rate will dip. Four overs of SLA are guaranteed, who are mostly 5th/6th bowlers.
