ICC World Cup 2019: Pressure applies, not conditions, state Virat Kohli, Ravi Shastri before departing
“Totals in England are touching 350. India likes to save wickets till the 40th over and then attack. Will there be a alternate in strategy?”
That essential query came up at a press conference, helmed via Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri, a day before they journey to England for the World Cup.
It’s clear that T20 has cannibalised and left deep imprints on ODIs. Totals keep escalating on flat tracks, hovering around 350 as batsmen have transferred their T20 instincts to the longer form—why just hit in the Powerplay and the stop overs, why no longer preserve swinging away via the 50 overs!
