If we follow your footsteps the state will be on fire" Omar said The NC leader said he will continue to raise such issues The Chief Minister said she was not occupying the chair for pleasure "Whether I stay in the chair for two days or two years I will not allow anyone to play with the people of the state" Mehbooba last week made a statement in the Assembly that the government had not identified any land for setting up a sainik colony in Kashmir She said even if any such colony is set up it would be only for retired soldiers who are permanent residents of the state as provided under the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir Omar has oppose the setting up of the proposed colony saying "it could be a ruse to settle non-state subjects in Kashmir and hence bypass Article 370" Cricket as we know it today is unrecognisable from the 1970s when a second format – One Day International – was introduced Since then Twenty20 has appeared on the scene and seems to hold the entire ecosystem hostage to its ability to appeal to the modern sports fan in its action-packed short duration and hence its draw for commercial sponsors Hardik Pandya was among the pick of the bowlers in the Pune ODI AP As to the cricketing merit Tests and T20s are poles apart and as India’s ace off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin said “They ought to be considered different sports” Where does that leave ODIs When T20 became popular and domestic franchise leagues began popping up everywhere the players were of the opinion according to an annual report published by the Australian Cricketers Association that they foresaw a time when ODIs cease to exist as a regular item on the cricket calendar In fact in 2013 ICC determined that they would drop the Champions Trophy as one of their marquee global tournament but yet we are only months from the 2017 Champions Trophy ODIs just won’t go away and the reasons are very simple – there is money to be made Broadcasters love ODIs as it provides a solid seven-hour window (including primetime during day-night games) with more than a hundred breaks for advertisements that allows them to make incredible profits For generations of fans especially in the subcontinent – the financial hub of the sport ODIs were synonymous with cricket as it made less demands on their time and attention than Tests With T20s now carving chunks out of that ODIs – since they are still tremendous money spinners – needed to be just as action packed ICC then meddled with the Powerplay rules and introduced two balls per innings to ensure more runs were scored at a rate never before seen and the so called boring middle overs are all but eliminated from the game However the question is who has suffered the most due toall these rule changes Bowlers On wickets that are flat in grounds where the boundaries are pulled in further and with batsmen confident in their abilities to clear the field at any stage of the game bowlers are fodder It’s even more acute in bilateral ODI series Even as the 50-over World Cup is the flagship event of the ICC every four years bilateral ODI series continue to thrive Bilateral series typically are played on surfaces that are just a concrete highways for the batsmen to drive along at any speed they want Just cast your mind back to India vs Australia series last year or in 2013 It should be no surprise then that records are being set at breakneck pace; there have been multiple ODI double centurions in the last few years; team totals over 300 are achieved as a matter of fact; four hundred is just another number In addition with the preference of teams to lengthen their batting line up it is not necessarily the case that the best available bowlers are picked in an ODI side If a terrific bowler say Mitchell Starc already has odds stacked against him due to the rules and the conditions an average bowler selected more for his ability to beef up the lower order is not going to be successful The following tables list the batting (Table 1a) and bowling averages (Table 1b) of the top five ODI teams (according to ICC rankings) since 1 January 2015 in matches including bilateral series and tournaments involving three or more sides Table 2 is the batting and bowling averages in bilateral series only amongst the top five ranked teams Table 1(a) Batting averages and Runs Scored Per Over by Top 5 ODI teams in all matches since1 January 2015 Table 1(b) Bowling averages and Runs Given Per Over by Top 5 ODI teams in all matches since 1 January 2015 Table 2 Batting and Bowling averages by Top 5 ODI teams in bilateral series vs Top 5 Teams since 1 January 2015 It is clear from the tables that the top five teams score about 300 runs generally with the averages skewed by the India-New Zealand bilateral series that were played on surfaces that aided spin In the series that India won 3-2 New Zealand were bowled out for 79 in the final match of the series in Vishakapatnam Every top five side except for New Zealand also score at a healthier rate in bilateral series than their scoring rate in all matches (New Zealand just about the same rate) The batting averages of the top five sides are also higher in bilateral series than in all matches except Australia who score at pretty much the same average bilateral match or not The bowers from the top five sides when facing other top five side concede runs at higher RPO in bilateral matches as well On Sunday when England scored 350 in their innings which India chased down I received messages from friends that complained about the Indian bowlers as well as bowling in general in the match True the quality of bowling wasn’t all that great but the structure of the game is set in such a way as to neuter the effectiveness of the bowlers where they are encouraged to limit the runs rather than to look for wickets At the end of the match Eoin Morgan talked about lack of turn for his spinners on an Indian pitch and that even a 350 score “clearly not” being sufficient Virat Kohli highlighted the kind of shots that a batsman could play on that Pune wicket that would “demoralise the opposition bowlers” In fact he played one himself when he played a shot with the straight bat and high elbow to launch a back of length slower delivery from Chris Woakes over long on for six Kohli was honest in his thoughts about the pitch calling it “placid” where “even at 63/4 you could chase 350 with [11] balls to spare” He conceded that his bowlers were “trying their hardest” and acknowledged that towards the end of England’s innings the “powerful” English batsman “were aggressive” and “didn’t think twice before going for any shot” As such bowlers in white ball cricket are on a hiding to nothing And in bilateral series where flat tracks seem to get dished out more often than not there isn’t really a point in blaming the bowlers when they can’t seem to stop the flow of runs The deck is stacked against them Written by SHOBHANA SUBRAMANIAM | Published: January 15 2011 4:23 am Related News From the highs of Diwali to the blues of the new yearthe mood on the market has swung from near-euphoria to pessimism This in a country that promises to remain the second fastest growing economy in the world for the next few yearsand with the chance to become the fastest growing after that In just a few trading sessionsthe markets seem to have lost their charmlosing 10 per cent between early November and now; the same foreign investors who couldnt get enough of Indian stocks last year have suddenly decided theyd rather wait Certainlythe Indian market has been expensive for a long time nowtrading well above its average historical multiples and at significant premiums to its peers But while just a couple of months backthe consensus was that the market deserved much of the premium it commandedgiven the compelling growth story that was playing outtoday investors are not so sure The India story todaymainly the macroeconomic piecehas suddenly turned weak so thatinstead of hitting double-digit GDP growth in a couple of yearsas we should havewe may actually slow down a littletaking some of the sheen off corporate Indias profits Whats threatening to hurt growth is raging inflation whichdriven by rapidly rising food pricescame in at 843 per cent for Decemberup from 748 per cent in November Not all of this is completely of our own making: soaring prices of crude oil and other commodities are beyond our control But we have failed miserably in anticipating the structural changes in food inflation and in reining it in The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has attempted to tame inflation through a series of interest rate hikes in 2010 that add up to 150 basis pointsbut evidently that hasnt been enough While the central bank may not have been as proactive as it should havethe bigger culprit has undoubtedly been the governmentwhich has been borrowing increasing amounts every year running up a huge fiscal deficit Its unpardonable to be picking up about Rs 3 lakh crore at a time when there have been windfall receipts from spectrum auctions and a fair amount of money has also come in from the market through disinvestments It was one thing to stimulate the economy during the downturn post-Lehman in late 2008but to keep borrowing at a time when revenues have been better than expected is irresponsible Indeedthe same government which pulled industry out of the trough in 2009 seems today to be incapable of tackling even the smallest of problems What is worrying investors is that policy-making has come to a complete standstilland the government seems unable to deal with its many challengesincluding charges of corruption Even with a good growth storyinvestors first need to be comfortable with the political situation The fact that Parliament couldnt transact any business in the last session can hardly inspire confidence; its critical that Parliament functions in the budget session since the Money Bill needs to be passed As for growththe latest IIP data for November an anaemic 29 per centwell below the consensus prediction of 6 per cent has clearly left investors nervous Unfortunatelythe RBI has been painted into a corner from where it will be forced to raise interest rates and tighten money supply at a time when money should be freely available and affordable to companies so that they can add new capacity But the RBI has little choice because if we cant contain inflation we will need to seriously rethink our growth rates Its no surprise the markets are nervous; after allinvestments were made on the premise that India will grow at 9 or 10 per cent If that doesnt happenthe markets will not attract the kind of money from foreign portfolio investors they did last year a record $29 billion That will pressure the widening current account deficit which is at record highs of 4 per cent of GDPand which has been funded by strong capital market flows Moreoverthe government will be a loser because it will not be able to mop up money through disinvestments; even in early 2010when the macroenvironment was far better than it is todaythe NTPC and NMDC issues had to be bailed out by government banks and financial institutions Its a pity that at a time when the world believes India can do itthe government is frittering away such an opportunity The writer is Resident EditorMumbaifor The Financial Express For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by New York Times | Published: August 15 2011 12:41 am Related News Thomas L Friedman London burns The Arab Spring triggers popular rebellions against autocrats across the Arab world The Israeli Summer brings 250000 Israelis into the streetsprotesting the lack of affordable housing and the way their country is now dominated by an oligopoly of crony capitalists From Athens to BarcelonaEuropean town squares are being taken over by young people railing against unemployment and the injustice of yawning income gapswhile the angry Tea Party emerges from nowhere and sets American politics on its head Whats going on here There are multiple and different reasons for these explosionsbut to the extent they might have a common denominator I think it can be found in one of the slogans of Israels middle-class uprising: We are fighting for an accessible future?got 612 votes.
