Punjab v Bangalore, IPL 2013, Mohali May 6, 2013

Kohli gets a mouthful, Neser gets a welcome

Plays of the day from the IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore
  shares 46

Induction of the day
Michael Neser was preferred over Luke Pomersbach as Kings XI Punjab opted for an extra quick bowler but things did not go as planned for him. In his first over, Neser stuck to the team strategy and bowled a bouncer to Chris Gayle. The big Jamaican was ready for the short stuff, backed away and hooked it for six. Neser went for length to end the over but Gayle swung over mid-wicket to record back-to-back sixes against the rookie, whose eventual figures of 4-0-62-0 were one short of the record for the most expensive figures in the IPL.

Speed of the day
Piyush Chawla must have thought he could stem the run-flow by rushing through his overs but that translated into bowling a lot quicker, too. His fastest delivery was a ball of 122.4 kph, which Gayle only managed to inside edge. Ironically, it was about the same pace that Praveen Kumar was bowling throughout.

Denial of the day
Having got rid of the Royal Challengers Bangalore openers, Kings XI squeezed their opposition in the middle overs. Cheteshwar Pujara did not want to get too bogged down so when Virat Kohli dug out a Praveen yorker, he called the captain through. They had to hurry through the single because Praveen was quick to react. As Pujara struggled to make his ground at the non-strikers' end, Praveen flicked the ball onto the stumps. Replays showed the bails came off as Pujara's bat was on the line but he was given not-out. To add insult to injury, the batsmen also ran an overthrow.

Drop of the day
Virat Kohli got a mouthful - literally - when he found himself in prime position to end Miller's aggressive knock. For the second time in the innings, Miller top-edged as he tried to slog down the ground and the ball seemed to kiss the low floodlights as it hurtled towards Kohli at extra cover. He was well under it and waited for it to come down but as it reached him, it burst through his hands and ricocheted onto his face and hit him on the mouth. He did not appear to lose any teeth but his ego took a knock as Miller marched on.

Misfield of the day
Only because it came from the man who never gets it wrong. With pressure on the Royal Challengers' fielders, AB de Villiers was the man stationed at deep mid-wicket to ensure the boundary rope was not breached. Miller pulled to him and de Villiers fumbled to allow a single to become a two as Kings XI got one closer to the total.

    Well we should stop hating n criticizing Virat all the time....yes he made some mistakes..yes his attitude is quite too much...but he is a great team player..when he plays for india he gives more than a 100% and he has done that from last 3-4 years..be it ODIs , test matches or T-20's...IPL isnt end of the world..as a indian n a fan of indian cricket team i like kohli a lot..hez the future of our team..stop making him a scape goat and also lets support him..he has to change his attitude a bit , but by booing and thrashing him , we are going to take away his confidence which may affect his performances at international level too..!!

    If we go by runs and pure statistics then not just Virat, Raina is better than Rohit. I don't say Rohit equals Mark waugh but he is something similar to MW. Cricket looks so simple when they are firing. Talking about Virat, let him score couple of hundreds on bouncy/pacy wickets in test matches outside India and then think of comparing with Sachin. Scoring 200+ hundreds, doesn't mean he will pass Sachin. Like someone mentioned, Sachin is beyond statistics. Do we have anyone apart from Steyn/Ajmal who is bowling to Virat even on flat tracks(Imagine sachin playing Donald, Mcgrath, walsh, ambrose, marshall, waqar, wasim, warnie, mcdermot, quadir, saqlain, lee, Pollock and to an extent great Imran) The thing that seperates Virat from Rohit is the attitude and his confidence. Don't mean to say Rohit is less confident. Remember only Sampras can serve an ace on the second serve(That is called attitude and confidence) By the way, from a fan of Sachin&Becker & most importantly a fan of bowling

    Looks like people have forgotten that Virat had won Under 19 world cup.. much before he was part for 2011 world cup winning team.. Just because RCB lost few matches he doesn't become bad captain or similarly MI won few games Rohit sharma doesn't become good captain.. No doubt Virat should focus on his batting & control agression.. He is better than Rohit Sharma.. Reminding again.. When Virat was playing U19, Rohit had played for national team, even now Rohit doesn't have place in all 3 formats..

    @Nareshpodi... I agree to all that you said, but like someone else said here, humility is the greatest virtue which he lacks big time. His aggression and bad demeanour will only get him this far. If he has to emulate his peers and heroes, he has much to learn. Sachin, Dravid, Laxman, Kapil are our very best, there is so much to learn from them. 200 Centuries ? ha ha ha ha

    Kohli is undoubtedly one of India's best batsmen. He has the technique, the stroke play, the aggression/passion, the hunger for runs and the ability to adjust to every situation. However, I don't think he is ready for captaincy. He has a great cricketing mind and awareness, but I believe he has tasted a lot of success and this captaincy position came at a time when he was at an all time high and he has lost his way a little. He needs to readjust his thinking and I think there is some time to go before he is mature enough to lead a team. He is only 24, he has enough time to mature. RCB made a mistake putting so much on him at such a time in his career. Right now, he should just be focusing on his batting like his contemporaries.

  • POSTED BY on | May 7, 2013, 9:28 GMT

    Kohli, all the comments posted here are highlighting his talent and comparing with Great Man(Sachin). I think that is not appreciable to compare... Kohli, you may have seen him playing and scoring centuries consecutibely, but let me remind you that most of the runs he scored are in Asian conditions where the pitches are flat, low bounce and easy to bat on.... And great man, played and scored in all kind of pitches and against all the teams all situations... and many more... He may score 200+ centuries in more than 400 ODI's :P that is not considered greatness by any means.....In the coming years, the pitches are going to be dead and nothing left in for the bowlers.. Even the countries like Australia(except Perth), New Zealand, West Indies have lost those bowler friendly pitches.... Sachin is the batsman of his or any other generation... He is more than the statistics.

    Kohli yet again prooved that he is not a captancy material. He was not able to control the situation at all after 13th over. This also showcased the bad bowling lineup RCB has. It has been proved since many seasons. Surprisingly no one seems to take a note of it. Bowlers like Vinay kumar and RP Singh cannot be bowled during the death overs. With their pace, batsman can hit big shots at will. Zaheer khan has to be brought back before it gets too late for RCB. Giving captaincy to ABD should be the best decision RCB can do at this moment.

    @Ajk Lewis you seem to be following kohli , or may be indian cricket , from recent time.but to remind you , it because of ganguly's ruthless captaincy and behavior towards his players led his team to the spot they are in now.and dhoni did not behave badly with his team mates because his team had WALL,SACH,GANGULY,VVS,KUMBLE, SEHWAG, ZAHEER...who all earned their respects as gentlemen of game..and you dont dare raising voice against them..and also if their is a guys who is committed to game and country, thats kohli..he saved iNDIA's faces over last 2 and half years..he scored whenever team is in trouble..and talk about his behavior with team mates, whom were affected??? GAMBIR (gambir is not the one who respects his teammates first)..kohli is new breed guy, he plays his way and he demands performance from his players, you saying thats wrong?? then you are mistaken..attitude changes according to generation mate.when his team mates dont have any problem with him, why should you have any??

    The best innings ever played in ODI cricket is by Virat Kohli at Howard against Sri Lanka. People like miller are only T-20 wonders and even there they come off 1 in 50 matches. Comparing kohli and miller is like comparing sun with a matchstick.

  • POSTED BY Lovetesh on | May 7, 2013, 6:16 GMT

    Still bowlers like RP Singh and Dinda will go for over USD500k+ in next auction. It's time youngster and other performers in domestic cricket get their fair chances. Better spend that money on developing new players like RR does. Remember Dravid goes for USD500k and is RR second most expensive player after Watson. All of their players comes less than that and see their result.

  • POSTED BY NareshPodi on | May 7, 2013, 6:13 GMT

    Gavaskar is a very good speaker.I don't think he tells for the sake of making unnecessary comments. The Cricket universe knows about Sunny.How can you point out his comments about Kohli?. Kohli's approach to the game is remarkable. I never see any player who played like him. I have been playing Cricket and watching it from many years. Every time, I (Not only me but millions) put hopes on Sachin and other Great players in a crucial situation, all those situations I was disappointed and spent sleepless nights. BUT Kohli never disappointed me (us).Look at Kohli's 50s/100s.They all came in very crucial times. Even if we allow him to play his own game, he will play 400+ ODIs but he makes at least 200+ centuries. He learns quickly from his mistakes.He is now just 24.Actually, when he got out, he just curses himself but not others. That is because of his LOVE for the game and passion to stay there to lead towards the victory.

    Please do not link this IPL with international matches.

    I was a fan of Kohli...still a fan of this stroke-play, but that pathetic attitude towards his own teammates turns me off big time. Success has definitely hit his head. Why he always looks like as if he is frustrated or angry about something, lol even after scoring hundreds? I hope he learns from Dravid and Dhoni to be humble and calm, else he'll lose his fans.

  • POSTED BY on | May 7, 2013, 4:57 GMT

    for that guy 28+++++ something, kohli's good, but brash, and that's not what is needed, ganguly was tough and focused, he did not downplay his team-mates, but kept encouraging them, kohli is no ganguly, nor is he a dhoni, success has hit his head, and it is causing him to lose a lot of fans.

  • POSTED BY realfan on | May 7, 2013, 4:37 GMT

    @champ1388 spot on dude..... these cric experts who are against kohli now, were cheering him when he was abusing opposition teams while chasing targets of 300+ against PAK and SRI....and these guys were cheering when he made 1st test century in AUS where none of the indian batsmen including DHONI failed miserably.....

    Kohli is a good batsman no doubt but perhaps he still needs more time before captaincy beckons him. He is too aggressive and it doesn't help bowlers when they are under pressure. I think this dropped catch is a good lesson for him. He was glaring at Ravi Rampaul when he didn't run back to take a return catch and was aggressively telling Vinay off for bowling poorly and just after that he got a catch which he fumbled. I hope he learnt his lesson because very soon he could end up being unpopular amongst the public and amongst his own team mates.

    Leave Kohli Alone you so called cricket experts. He has been the only bright spot in the Indian team and has somewhat has saved Indian cricket face in the last 3 years or so when everybody else failed including Dhoni tests outside India. The guy contributes and is intense and he is only 24. You cant expect players to be saint in terms of behaviour, as long as they back it with the performance. Like Ricky Ponting and Shane Warne did, he backs up his arrogance with the performance. And whether you like it or not he is gonna be the next captain, no matter how much you hate him. So shut up and let the boy flourish.

The real TIGER must be turning in his grave if he looks at this sort of behaviour from the 'blue-eyed' boy of Indian cricket!

    RCB never learnt it's lesson from last seas. They have a very mediocre balling line up and they have persisted with that. They now are paying the price as in last season. All the teams except possibly the Pune Warriors have better bowling line up than RCB. The only reason they win games is due to Gayle and DeVilliers. If they score 200 plus then RCB have a chance. No wonder they could not even defend 190 against a 6th placed Punab. How can they aspire to be a champion. Sadiq

    Kohli & Pujara played ODI and not T20.

    T800 Luke Pomersbasch has done absolutely nothing to warrant a secure place in the side. If he was blacklisted by the IPL he would have been sent home before the start of the tournament. Just take a look at the Pakistani's. they don't beat around the bush in India. So your Luke Pomersbasch is no sensation.
