“You have some success and you think, ‘Yeah, I can do the same things on the field all the time,’ which is not possible,” said Yuvraj, who has been criticized many a times for being indulging in too much outside activities that resulted in his poor on-field performances.The target audience here are the privileged young guns, Kohli, Sharma & Jadeja.
Fuelled by Yuvraj's comments and putting Cricinfo (a Statistics paradise) and our very own MS Excel to use, I write.
A simple X-Y scatter of Virat Kohli,Ravindra Jadeja and Rohit Sharma's scores in all forms of the game this year depicts that they have really found it hard to be on the pitch creating a partnership.All of them are heavily populated in the less than 40 region which is average in terms of evaluating a partnership.
Now the question here is not talent,which is judged by individual scores, the question here is the attitude of staying over there and putting up a fight .
I wont write more, numbers speak for themselves.
In case India wants to put up a real good fight at the World Cup , already plagued by the absence of a world class seamer, atleast the batting department has to follow this rule-
Perform or Perish !
