A note for Kohli, Mithun

Just a expression of personal opinion on RCB's young men.

To


Virat Kohli,


U totaly lived up to the faith of Ray Jennings n RCB managment in retaining u and i feel u r every worth 1.8 mn spent to hold u back! U showed tremendous class n temperament to get RCB to a formidable 175 with a outstanding 70 of just 44 balls against a quality bowling attack! i was just as estatic when u played a 48 run innings agaisnt MI in CL n RCB lost by 2 runs, but ur skills to smack Malinga, Zaheer, Harbhajan was totally awesome. U prevail as a finisher as well as an anchor! It has been a pleasure watching a youngster like u, handle pressure,take responsibility, and perform! U posses the silken drives and wristy flicks, all loaded with class... and along with that, the big heaves over midwicket, covers and straight down is superb combination of talent! Add to that ur excellent fielding, and ur a captain's delight to have in the team! U and Suresh Raina are likely to be pillars of Indian team in near future. More experience in foreign lands and improved defense are certainly going to give u both, a cemented no.3 and no.5/6 spot respectively! Hope to see u do just as well in 2 more matches n bag the IPL this year. U, combining with Mayank, AB and Pomersbach are well capable to get RCB winning, just incase the extraordinary Chris has an off day smile


To


Abhimanyu Mithun,


There is Venkatesh Prasad, such a wily smart bowler of his time. There is Zaheer Khan, one of India's best ever bowlers & wisest head in contemporary cricket. Its obvious they shared loads of tips with u, but u shown total incapability to emerge a consistant performer! The opposition sees part timers as a opportunity to get back in the game. and u being so ordinary that ur a certain target to milk runs. I m not saying u are alone at fault for yesterday's loss. It was a poor bowling n exceptional CSK batting that down RCB. But the reason i specify U alone, is because the rest have more often than not, been very good but had a crucial bad day yesterday. Vettori, having the best ecomony this IPL was blasted all parts. Aravind is among the leading IPL bowlers n Zaheer has been helping  in early wickets n building pressure. But U on the other hand are  just there to fill a spot! Agreed work very hard on ur bowling n give ur full effort... But there is not much skill or smartness in ur job when it most matters i.e on the field. If hit for 4 or 6, ur next ball is a predictable bouncer! As if ur Steyn-like quick to really ruffle up the batsmen. These are not ur Rajni playmates, these are top quality world class players u get in IPL. Poor line length accuracy! Hardly ability to bowl accurate yorkers! Width offered constantly, too less ball movement, no cleaver changes of pace, constant indiscipline  of bowling extras... I fail to understand why u are still in the side!!!  Mayb because pitch has some pace, or team didnt wish to change winning combination... but i personally do not think a bowler as limited skilled as u deserve a place and Syed Mohammad should get a place under any condition circumstances! I m not sure if u will be replaced and u may do something better n prove me wrong, but as of now observing over many matches, I wont like having a 'genuine bowler' in the side who will be ineffective 8/10 times.

A good article buddy. He has worked hard to reach this position.

KOHLI has proved his class.
MITHUN will need to prove himself.

Mithun is good with Ranji test match bowling and the ball is hard, but in T20 it is leather ball that is why he cannot control with the ball. He need to get well trained for T20 format
All the opposite team wait for Mithun bowling to accelerate the runs, hope he will be dropped for next crucial matches
Ravi-Anand on 26 May 2011, 11:25 AM

Our Bowlers must play well

@all- I m glad u liked this post :) I first fell that it wont be so good to attack the capabilities of our own player as harsh. But then thought its better be told, whats expected from u n what u lack. I did target Mithun a weakness in earlier blogs too. but just in few lines n hope that he will improve. but now he has got enough chances n its well worth concluding he is a liability in the playing 11. I m glad the rest of u here, acknowledge this unfortunate truth.
