There is lot of fuss going on about anchors and hitters in the T20 game. Let’s talk about the last game DC vs RCB. Who won the match for us An anchor Kallis or hitters Uthappa, Taylor, Kohli and White, NOBODY RIGHT???
We could have won the game had there been another Dravid to follow after Dravid dismissal. We needed 2 Dravids in the last game who could play sensibly and yet aggressively. Imagine, after Dravid departed someone could exactly play how Dravid played before he got out, that’s exactly we needed but unfortunately no one else could play like Dravid did.
We lost the game because Kallis was trying to Anchor the innings and hitters were trying to hit the ball in the air without using their heads.
Fact of the matter is, There shouldn’t be any fixed roles like Anchor or hitter in any format of the game. You should just play according to the situation.
THAT’S WHAT DRAVID BELIEVES IN AND THAT’S WHAT DRAVID DOES ON THE FILED, HATS OFF TO YOU DRAVID.
(Inspired from Dravid’s last 2 innings)
Are you guys with me on this???
