Aakash Chopra: For argument’s sake, I am giving you the example of Delhi Capitals’ Head coach Ponting. If he wants assistant coaches (Indian) what he would do? He may be knowing me and Kaif but certainly not Tarak Sinha (Chopra’s childhood coach who has produced over a dozen international cricketers and also made Delhi and Rajasthan Ranji Trophy Champions). The game has changed. Senior (domestic) coaches don’t fit the bill because the delegation job (which essentially is done by most coaches in India) can only be done by a head coach. … [Read more...] about Why are there so few Indian coaches in IPL — former cricketers, experts take strike

Before concluding this article, here is a comparison between the misbah measures for Virat Kohli and de Villiers. As the comparative chart below shows, Kohli is significantly more conservative than de Villiers in the Powerplay overs. Kohli's record suggests that he looks to keep his wicket intact until the end overs, when he cuts loose and his scoring rate soars. His dismissal rate is about average.

A peculiarity in his record is the vast disparity between his performance in the first and second innings. He is outstanding in the first innings, and very close to average in the second. Kohli is conservative in both innings but marginally better in run chases.
