Sunil Gavaskar wrote : “Burnout is a word that was bandied about quite a lot at the start of the century but as soon as the IPL took off nobody, especially the so-called protector of cricketers rights FICA (Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations) has uttered the word again. That the national championship doesn’t mean much has been clear for a few years now that the IPL is here and it’s been emphasized once again by the way the Ranji Trophy has been devalued with the best talent out of the country,” External link

Sunil Gavaskar says : “Yes, yes of course, but how powerful and strong those wrists are. You get to know when you shake their hands and feel and observe them,” “There have been batsmen between these two who have really great flick shots, like Mohammad Azharuddin and VVS Laxman, but I would say their wrists weren’t as powerful as GRV and Kohli’s. Hence, the difference in power. Perhaps, it an illusion in my mind, but that’s my gut-feel. Of course, this magnificent shot of Kohli’s isn’t just due to wrists; it takes a lot of skill just as it was for all the others before him” External link

Sunil Gavaskar says ( about Virat Kohli ) : “See what Kohli has done now. He isn’t just a bottom-handed player but uses the top hand perfectly well when he wants to. So, the ball on the off stump he can play the punchy cover drive but suddenly, use his bottom hand and wrists to smash it for a six over midwicket. What does the bowler do now?” External link

Sunil Gavaskar says : “I won’t say drag-scoop, but drag-flick,” “Scoop suggests it has popped just over midwicket; doesn’t convey the astonishing distance it went.

Sunil Gavaskar says : “It’s because he now wants to cover not just square-leg but wants to use that shot to target the full arc from square-leg to wide long-on, or in other words, he wants to hit the balls from off and outside off as well, not just middle and leg” “Gibbs is right, Dessie (Haynes) did play the aerial flick occasionally, though his arc was from square-leg to backward square-leg” External link

expressindia Sunday, December 15, 2019 5:12:00 AM EAT

Sunil Gavaskar says : “It definitely does. You are going across the line to fast bowlers and from the off or off-and-middle stump lines. If the head is still, you get better control of the shot, you don’t fall over or across, and the balance helps in hitting the ball where you want,” External link

Sunil Gavaskar said : “In T20 cricket, it’s not just India but there are other teams as well who are not good at defending the totals. In the first T20I, even West Indies couldn’t defend a total which was in excess of 200. So, it’s not just a situation with India, it’s generally with most other teams as well. They find it difficult to defend,” “As matches are played in the evening, the dew factor also plays a huge role. The bowlers are not able to bowl properly with the wet ball. Even the fielders find it difficult to field as they don’t get a good grip on the ball when they are fielding in the deep and are throwing. So, fielding wise also, it’s difficult and that’s why I think, teams find it difficult when it comes to defending the totals in T20s” External link

Sunil Gavaskar wrote : “Burnout is a word that was bandied about quite a lot at the start of the century but as soon as the IPL took off nobody, especially the so-called protector of cricketers rights FICA (Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations) has uttered the word again. That the national championship doesn’t mean much has been clear for a few years now that the IPL is here and it’s been emphasized once again by the way the Ranji Trophy has been devalued with the best talent out of the country,” External link

Sunil Gavaskar says : “Yes, yes of course, but how powerful and strong those wrists are. You get to know when you shake their hands and feel and observe them,” “There have been batsmen between these two who have really great flick shots, like Mohammad Azharuddin and VVS Laxman, but I would say their wrists weren’t as powerful as GRV and Kohli’s. Hence, the difference in power. Perhaps, it an illusion in my mind, but that’s my gut-feel.

So, the ball on the off stump he can play the punchy cover drive but suddenly, use his bottom hand and wrists to smash it for a six over midwicket. What does the bowler do now?” External link

Sunil Gavaskar says : “I won’t say drag-scoop, but drag-flick,” “Scoop suggests it has popped just over midwicket; doesn’t convey the astonishing distance it went.

Sunil Gavaskar says : “It’s because he now wants to cover not just square-leg but wants to use that shot to target the full arc from square-leg to wide long-on, or in other words, he wants to hit the balls from off and outside off as well, not just middle and leg” “Gibbs is right, Dessie (Haynes) did play the aerial flick occasionally, though his arc was from square-leg to backward square-leg” External link

expressindia Sunday, December 15, 2019 5:12:00 AM EAT

Sunil Gavaskar says : “It definitely does. You are going across the line to fast bowlers and from the off or off-and-middle stump lines. If the head is still, you get better control of the shot, you don’t fall over or across, and the balance helps in hitting the ball where you want,” External link

Sunil Gavaskar said : “In T20 cricket, it’s not just India but there are other teams as well who are not good at defending the totals. In the first T20I, even West Indies couldn’t defend a total which was in excess of 200. So, it’s not just a situation with India, it’s generally with most other teams as well. They find it difficult to defend,” “As matches are played in the evening, the dew factor also plays a huge role. The bowlers are not able to bowl properly with the wet ball. Even the fielders find it difficult to field as they don’t get a good grip on the ball when they are fielding in the deep and are throwing. So, fielding wise also, it’s difficult and that’s why I think, teams find it difficult when it comes to defending the totals in T20s” External link

The pitch has still played well. There are few areas where the ball has stopped and not quite come onto the bat. There are footmarks on both sides made by the right-hand bowlers and that's going to cause problems to the left-handed batsmen in the Windies team. It still looks like a pretty good pitch. From a batting perspective, you want to wait for half-volleys and not drive on the up. From a bowling perspective, that area where the ball is stopping and doing a little bit is what you would want to concentrate to get wickets. Bounce will reduce as we progress into this Test match," External link
