BazBall in India


Recommended Posts

It is the right way to play in India. There is no point in blocking all the time. Aggressive batting like Sehwag is the way. 
 

Given more luck, 398 would have been chased in India some day. On such an uneven bounce, just staying in the middle would not get runs.  There is no point in blocking on such a pitch with uneven bounce. If not for BUmrah, India would have lost this match. They took our spinners to the cleaners. Even Ashwin looked tripe there, couldn’t purchase his 500th wicket!


Hope Drawvid and AluFritters-Burger realize this. 
 

If we continue like this, will back England to win the series

So if Jadeja was not run out or some fluky dismissals were avoided, India would have led this series 2-0 even with all non performers in the team.

 

That is the gulf between two sides.

 

India should have scored 600 plus easily in both tests. They  gift wrapped their wickets.

Exactly, aggressive batting is key. Sweeping , slog sweep, can neuter spin bowling.

Aggression without any plan is not the answer.Rohhit Sharma is the main culprit, he has no idea what he is doing, one day he is ultra aggressive and next day he is ultra defensive.

 

Iyer is another idiot who gift wrapped his wickets. It is not like he is scoring over 100 SR.

 

English spinners are not that great, they were giving boundary ball every over. There was no need for them to throw their wickets.

Too much is being made about Bazball IMO . Bazball did not win them first test. India's incomptence gave them the test IMO.

 

 

Captaincy is big part what is making the series close. Rohit is being exposed brutally as a captain.He has no idea what needs to be done on the field.

 

He is even lacking basic things you need to do as a captain on Indian wickets.

Sums it up perfectly. Sos to kohli and get him back to captaincy just for tests.

2nd test at Vizag was somewhat similar to 2nd test of 2016.

 

https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/england-tour-of-india-2016-17-1030195/india-vs-england-2nd-test-1034811/full-scorecard

 

India batted first in 2016 and 2024.

Day 1 score in 2016 - 317/4

Day 1 score in 2024 - 336/6

Ashwin was not out with centurions Kohli (151) and Jaiswal (179) on both ocassions.

 

Day 2 in 2016 - India bowled out for 455

Day 2 in 2024 - India bowled out for 396, England bowled out for 253

 

Day 3 in 2016 - England bowled out for 255. India 98/3

Day 3 in 2024 - India bowled out for 253, England 67/1

 

Day 4 in 2016 - India bowled out for 204 by lunch, England 87/2 in 59 overs - Cook and Haseeb Hameed went into blockathon.

Day 4 in 2024 - England bowled out for 292 while chasing 399.

 

Day 5 in 2016 - England bowled out for 158 while chasing 405.

 

India scored almost same amount of runs on both ocassions 659 in 2016 and 651 in 2024, but main difference was in England's score. They gave themselves better condtions to bat in with their approach.
