defeat of Somdev Devvarman in the qualifying round PTI Written by Devendra Pandey | Nagpur | Updated: January 28 2017 10:38 am India trail 1-0 in the three-match T20 international series against England (Source: PTI) Top News At Eden Gardens last week Ben Stokes bowled a bouncer It was fast it reared up sharply and Hardik Pandya was hurried up by the pace-bounce combo He went for a pull but was late on the shot and got a thick edge However to Stoke’s surprise the ball flew over third man for a six The boundaries were relatively small the modern-day bats have fat edges and the pace-length got no justice It can all be dispiriting for a fast bowler In fact even more so for spinners especially the wrist specialists like Amit Mishra for there is no place to hide Luckily for aggressive seamers and spinners good news awaits them at Nagpur Vast acres of stadium space awaits them at the arena which is probably the biggest in India News came in late on Friday evening that Indian management have told the stadium authorities not to get coy about the size of the boundaries ‘Keep it to 75 yards all round’ was the message It’s easy to see why – it brings in Amit Mishra into the picture They no longer need to think of using run-containing bowlers (read Parvez Rasool) and instead use the spinners as attacking options It also helps the England team of course and it promises to throw up a fascinating contest First a comparison with the normal grounds in India On an average most of the Indian ground the longest areas like long-on would be not more than 65 yards No wonder 350 plus targets are being chased down without much of fuss in the recent times in this country It’s set to change in Nagpur though Last March the VCA ground hosted 9 games of T20 World Cup and only twice 170 plus runs were scored by any team The average score at the ground remained 120 plus and the slow nature of the pitch has ensured batsmen try hard to get big runs The news is that the slow tracks are set to change here as the authorities have relaid the pitch and if VCA officials are to be believed this pitch will assist bowlers while batsmen will find the ball coming on nicely to the bat All around the arena the boundaries would be of 75 yards and that is definitely set to even up the contest Run India Run Now for the impact of a bigger make it normal ground on batting Barring Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni Indians aren’t all that fast runners between the wickets Especially with the likes of Yuvraj Singh and Kedar Jadhav in the mix In Pune when Jadhav played that knock of his life he talked about how he was hassled by Kohli’s frenetic running In Nagpur the Indians would have to run hard to make up for the lack of monster hits Would the twos and threes end up stemming India’s charge On grounds with boundary ropes pulled in batsmen hit big shots without breaking into sweat Now at the longer boundaries they can’t ease into those hits as nonchalantly as they normally would Even a six would have to be hit in a gap if you get the drift so that mishits if any don’t carry to a fielder It’s one thing to hit 90 yard sixes when the actual boundaries are around 60 its quite another matter when you know you need to clear 75 yards The pressure is entirely different Conventional hitters It would also be interesting to see how the Indian batsmen go about the task of hitting They are mostly conventional hitters – in the sense that they thread the regular arcs in the ground In a big arena it would help to have inventive hitters like say Sam Billings with his lap shots and reverse sweeps You are then picking the usually untenanted areas and targeting them with innovation When Suresh Raina tried his shuffles to the off in Kanpur we know how it went down – the leg stump was yorked out If a batsman has shots 360 degrees around the ground it then takes out the vastness of the stadium out of equation You really don’t have to flex your muscles hard and try to clear a cowcorner or a long-on Instead you can target the unmanned fine-leg or areas behind square and get your runs In the here and now though the Indian team has reasons to look forward to this game They can bring in Mishra especially considering how well Yuzvender Chahal bowled in the Powerplay and almost got India into the game Now they can continue to attack with Mishra and try to capitalise on England’s weakness against spin The likes of Jason Roy aren’t great against spin and India can look to squeeze in the pressure England too can attack India with short balls – if they fancy that line of attack – and their seamers can confidently do what they do without wondering about leaking runs Despite taking Adil Rashid for first T20 game England didn’t bowl him because their seamers sealed the deal Here in Nagpur they can forget all those worries and go for the attack All in all it’s going to be fascinating battle For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by

Dhoni is my favourite player For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsThe Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has sold off the last of itssix franchises to a private investor The St Lucia Zouks was the last of the teams that was centrally owned and now that too has been bought by Philadelphia-based businessman Jignesh Pandya whose "arrival into the CPL family" was announced in a swanky private club in London’s Soho This isn’t Indian-born Pandya’s first foray into cricket however At the end of September it was announced that he had signed a licencing agreement with the United States of America Cricket Association (USACA) to create and promote an American T20 tournament Whether this will happen is heavily dependent on if and when USACA is reinstated by the International Cricket Council (ICC) which suspended the organisation in June 2015 While a T20 league in the USA is still a long way from reality the CPL has the appearance of going from strength to strength It’sheading into itsfifth year and estimates state that 130000 people attended the matches in 2016 over 80 percent occupancy at the grounds Meanwhile global TV audience rose by 40 percent with the tournament now being shown in 101 countries Darren Sammy hopes the national team’s success in the T20 format would help promote the CPL Getty Images Six league matches were played in the USA this season and while the facilities at the Fort Lauderhill Stadium in Florida are a little homespun the cricket was of a decent standard and the tickets sold well USACA may be struggling to make the most of the American market but with the ICC’s help as stand-in administrators of the sport the CPL ismaking headway Pandya is the third US-based investor to buy into the CPL; now the Jamaica Tallawahs St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and the Zouks all in American hands The dream is to have a team based in the US but that is a long way from becoming a reality Secondly sale of the last of the franchises is another positive in the evolution of the tournament Questions still exist over the CPL first and foremost about whether anyone can turn a profit —either the tournament itself or the franchisees who have bought teams There are now some big hitters involved in CPL team ownership An IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders owns the Trinidad and Tobago team Embattled Indian businessman Vijay Mallya has purchased the Barbados team having had a stake in the Royal Challengers Bangalore as well Clearly those whohave made money out of cricket in the past see the CPL as a potential revenue stream for the future Pandya is the latest investor with an Indian connection to be drawn to the CPL and the Indian market presents both its biggest opportunity and its biggest challenge Finding a way to get Indian TV viewers engaged in the CPL and also have the games on at a time that suits Caribbean fans and entice them to come to the matches will always be a challenge The CPL needs both but night time games are on in the early morning in India and day games on weekdays are poorly attended The other issue that the CPL will face in the not too distant future is the spectre of the rebranded and streamlined English T20 competition happening at the same time As St Lucia Zouks coach Stuart Williams pointed out one of the strengths of the tournament has been the quality of overseas signings If the new English competition happens at the same time that dilutes the star quality available "I think this year (the standard at the CPL) was excellent" Williams said "I think the CPL has done well in terms of attracting the best possible players apart from the Indian players and obviously the English players because of the county season I think we get the best possible players that are available to us" Pete Russell the chief operating officer of the tournament is aware of these issues and is open to negotiations with the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) about scheduling "There is absolutely no point us playing our tournament at the same time as the ECB does" Russell said "Look we are obviously in conversation with the ECB and it is a long way out They are not slated to start their tournament until 2020 For us it is all about making sure each brand has its own window and has its own identity What you don’t want to do is play these T20 tournaments back to back you have to give them a little bit of oxygen We understand the pressure that the ECB isunder in terms of the window in which they can actually play the games We are slightly more flexible than they are Those are ongoing conversations but we don’t envisage a problem there" While overseas players are great the biggest selling point for the CPL is the superstar names of the World T20 championship winning West Indies team who are evenly distributed among the six franchises Daren Sammy captain of the St Lucia Zouks and the man wholed that West Indies triumph in India was keen to point out the strength of the West Indies brand in this format "When we dominated Test cricket the amount of players whowere playing cricket in the UK in county cricket that made our international team very strong" Sammy said "And if you look at our T20 format which is our strongest format the number of players playing in other leagues all over the world there is no secret why T20 is our best format and we have our own Premier League that creates (more of) that opportunity" There is plenty to be downhearted about in Caribbean cricket; Sammy himself expressed his disappointment and sadness at the treatment he and other members of that World T20 side have received But the CPL while still having plenty of room for improvement appears to be moving in the right direction Jake
