Indian bowling attack looks far superior almost indomitable in comparison to Pakistan’s When the Pakistani captain isn’t a larger than life figure who gets transformed into public enemy No1 across India at least for a day When you can’t think of even a single individual face-off to look forward to in the contest And also when every Pakistani you meet seems to have given up on their team Even telling them not to write off their own team or that Pakistan can spring a surprise or their players can play out of their skins on the big occasion tends to fall on deaf ears From the anonymous immigration officer to the genial cab driver who insists on reading more Indian newspapers than Pakistani If anything what they’re hoping for is that their team doesn’t get obliterated even if they are to lose Imagine that A potential loss to India being spoken of so nonchalantly It’s strange considering that the buzz seemed very much along expected lines before the last India-Pakistan big match back in March 2015 at the Adelaide Oval It was a different Pakistan team then You still had the likes of Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi in the mix Misbah-ul-Haq was the captain and there was the enigmatic Umar Akmal still around It still seemed like a match-up on paper and otherwise Only two players from that Pakistani XI are still around Ahmed Shezhad the opener is making a return to the side while Wahab Riaz doesn’t quite seem the force he was back then In contrast at least eight of the Indians from that convincing win are likely to take the field at Edgbaston on Sunday New captain

the eve of India’s match against Pakistan Reuters It doesn’t mean that the Indians can take the game lightly In an age where you almost never come across an opponent you aren’t very familiar with as a cricketer Kohli & Co will be up against a relatively unknown force One that despite not possessing any firepower of note could possibly have a couple of surprises up their sleeve Kohli himself seemed to think so even if he did stick to the usual diatribe about his team focusing more on themselves which you hear from most captains these days “We don’t play them often So they’ve always been a team that can surprise any team on the day that they play well” he said “You know of their abilities But you’re not too aware of how they react in different situations All you can do in that situation is focus on your skill which anyways you should do as a team As individuals some people like to watch videos and go through bowlers and batsmen and all that Some people don’t” he said Azhar Ali is a familiar name but it’s only of late that he’s started establishing himself in the limited-overs setup having survived a disastrous captaincy reign But somehow he’s always remained out of the loop whenever India and Pakistan have met in the last few years Shoaib Malik of course has an Indian connect that stretches well beyond the cricket field and he also averages 4951 with the bat against

stepped up his game against India Mohammad Amir meanwhile will generate interest like he does every time he marks his run on English soil Fresh faces The rest though remain fresh faces or those that the Indian public anyway hasn’t really heard much about — especially with the Pakistan Super League not being aired there If it had been the likes of Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali would have made an impression The 18-year-old leg-spinner and the nippy swing bowler — who won lavish praise from both Akram and Younis — had a significant impact in the PSL and even won Test spots as a result during Pakistan’s recent Caribbean tour India’s practice session at the Colts ground did generate a lot of interest on the periphery of the stadium even if it meant getting a glimpse of their superstars through the gaps and crevices around the stadium gates Some weren’t deterred though from being brazen about expressing their delight at getting to spot their favourite players a couple of girls in particular who were rather vociferous in letting Yuvraj Singh know how much they loved him In contrast the Pakistani practice session hardly attracted any attention For the record Indians and Pakistanis make up nearly 20 per cent of Birmingham’s population with 13 per cent from across the border But still no interest and you couldn’t blame them And probably you had to believe Kohli considering the anonymity of the opposition even if it did sound a tad clichéd when he said “If a cricket ball has been bowled you should be good enough to handle it whether it’s bowled by someone you play regularly or you don’t You would rather take that up as a bigger challenge that you’ll have to come up with the kind of bowling that you don’t play often” Live on Star Sports 1: 1500 hrs For all

on Thursday evening when the traffic came to a standstill The basic problem is there is a drainage problem and water has come on to the roads When there is four to five ft of water on the road there is no way the traffic can move There is no way the police can ensure that the traffic moves You can row a boat in the water but can’t run a vehicle The problem is not new I would say it is bad urban planning and haphazard growth which have led to the problems and over the years various government departments have not paid heed to it For the last 10 years I am seeing jams at the Honda Chowk due to the same reason This time it was acute Unless we solve the drainage problem this will keep happening And the way Gurgaon has been developed if there is traffic jam at two or three points then the whole city is gridlocked What is the plan of action so that this doesn’t happen again That has to be checked with authorities concerned All I can say is that if there is waterlogging there will be a problem How did the police manage the situation Our idea was to grab more resources and have the water removed which did not happen Then we realised the road was not going to open at that particular point Later the traffic was diverted We got it reversed and using alternate roads and sent commuters to their destinations via Sohna or Pataudi That is how the blockage was cleared but since the water was there again in the morning (Friday) traffic piled up If it rains again will there be a problem What I am told is that the Municipal Corporation and Highways have deployed extra pumps and will try to pump out the water depending on how much water comes We have cut the median (divider) and in case there is a problem again we will allow the traffic on the wrong side This is the back-up plan as of now Did other authorities come together for a solution Director Urban local bodies from Chandigarh the Corporation commissioner people from HUDA and I had a meeting We have made a few plans on how to react and are hopeful that this rainy season we will avert any bad incident again We have made an informal standard operating procedure but the solution to the problem is not short term Draining water out automatically needs a long-term solution otherwise this may happen again What were the challenges during the night-long work clearing traffic A major challenge was to convince people to drive according to plan The traffic going towards Jaipur was blocked so some cut across the medians (dividers) and jammed the other side of the road No one was reaching home early by doing this The thinking of people has to change We cannot progress like this We as a society have to think For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | Kolkata | Updated: January 8 2017 10:18 am Kohli who has led India to five successive Test series win insists his captaincy style won’t change in limited over games (File Photo) Top News After taking over the limited-overs reins from MS Dhoni Virat Kohli wants his predecessor to play freely enjoy himself and become the marauder that he used be during his formative years in international cricket The new captain would also like to see Dhoni bat up the order In an interview with the bccitv the new skipper paid glowing tributes to “his captain” and explained the 2019 World Cup roadmap “It’s a win-win situation for the new captain coming in Still having that guy (Dhoni) for advice But what I’m really happy about and what I’m most pleased about is the fact (that) he will be able to play free cricket He will be able to express himself as the aggressive MS Dhoni that we knew when he came into the team Somewhere as a player you understand that responsibility can take that away from you I think it’s time he enjoys his cricket for how much ever time he wants and really expresses himself He has taken so much burden for the country and now it’s his time to enjoy it” Kohli said Over the past few years Dhoni has become more of an accumulator in a young team without a settled middle-order and bereft of a quality lower-order finisher Kohli however feels that the former captain regaining his attacking mojo would be great news for the side “About the batting bit if I ask him (Dhoni) where he wants to bat I know what kind of a person he is he will tell me ‘wherever you want me to bat’ But I would love to see him bat higher up than usually where he has been for the last few years and totally enjoys his cricket If MS Dhoni enjoys his cricket and plays the way he has in his initial years the team is in a very solid space His cricket ability his understanding of the game understanding of situations is priceless To have this burden off his shoulders I think he is gonna enjoy the best phase of his career as a batsman and he will be able to enjoy his cricket far more than he has ever done before without the burden of being under the scanner all the time” Through thick and thin Kohli was also all praise for his predecessor and said that Dhoni would always be his captain “Obviously these are massive shoes to fill You think of MS Dhoni and the first word that comes to mind is ‘captain’ You don’t relate MS Dhoni in any other way For me he is always going be my captain because I started my career under him and he is handing over the leadership to me He will always be the person who guided me initially who gave me opportunity gave me ample time and ample space to grow as a cricketer (Someone) who saved me from getting dropped from the team many a time And that’s why there’s a huge amount of mutual respect because he understands that being given an opportunity I have tried to work as hard on my game and actually improved on the mental side of things so that I can take up the responsibility later We share a wonderful friendship” Kohli admitted that Test captaincy had been thrown upon him when he wasn’t fully prepared Dhoni had announced his shock retirement from Test cricket midway into the 2014-15 series Down Under In fact Kohli also had to lead the first Test of the series in Adelaide because injury rendered the regular skipper unavailable “Test captaincy; I think I was told the day before (at) the meeting that MS is not going to play in Adelaide and I’m gonna be captaining the country It was quite surprising for me because I didn’t expect it at all Because in my head I was still finding my feet in Test cricket as a batsman But the responsibility worked beautifully for me” Kohli recounted adding: “Yes I would say that the one-day and T20 captaincy has been something that I tried to learn along the line a lot more I feel a lot more confident taking it up and starting it off straightaway because of the kind of cricket that I have played in the shorter formats and what I have learnt being in different situations in that particular format” Support system He said Dhoni’s inputs will be valuable in future as well “It’s something that will really help (me) understand the game much better So yes I have been preparing in my own head MS has been speaking to me as well about strategies about how situations need to be approached As I said one day cricket and T20 cricket is something I have had a really good understanding of in the past few years So I will be able to execute the plans with more conviction starting off compared to when I started off in Test cricket” Kohli is now the captain across all three formats and he described it as the “the biggest day in my life” But he insisted his captaincy style and mindset wouldn’t change “For me the mindset doesn’t change in formats The most important thing that a team should realise is that the ultimate goal is to win And in this day and age and the kind of cricket we play; we have to play consistent cricket at very high intensity for a long period of time to win games of cricket One of the reasons we have been able to do well in Test cricket that we have been able to apply that extra pressure consistently on the opposition; enough for them to make a mistake” He spoke about the 2019 World Cup as well “Just hearing about the World Cup gives me goosebumps To play a World Cup for India as captain would be the biggest achievement of my life I think The thing that needs to be understood and addressed here is that it’s a gradual process Good thing is that everyone is young Everyone is excited to grow as cricketers which is the most exciting place that a captain can be in with of course the guidance and inputs from MS I think it’s a wonderful phase for Indian cricket where the youngsters coming in really have an opportunity to seal their spots for that big occasion We have a Champions Trophy coming up as well” The roadmap He outlined the roadmap: “The main goal is to identify players who can play in different positions and who can work around the batsmen who are featuring in the ODI setup for a long time At the same time giving them ample time to prepare for those big events and not rush them into any sort of plans that they can’t execute” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sudheendra Kulkarni |
