On flat tracks, the big-hitters can bat around someone like Cheteshwar Pujara, who will hold one end up. On tough pitches, and during tricky chases, an organised technique is as valuable as the ability to hit boundaries on demand.
Pujara's unbeaten 38-ball 40 in Punjab's huge chase against Rajasthan nearly cost his team the match. Run-a-ball scores in the 30s and 40s do more damage than good in a 20-over game.
