आईपीएल में मध्यक्रम्म पर बैटिंग करना आसान नहीं होता - महेंद्र सिंह धोनी


आईपीएल-11 में अपनी टीम चेन्नै सुपर किंग्स को तीसरी बार चैंपियन बनाने वाले कैप्टन महेंद्र सिंह धोनी ने कहा है कि निचले क्रम में बल्लेबाजी करना उनके लिए आसान नहीं था। भारतीय क्रिकेट टीम के पूर्व कप्तान धोनी ने साथ ही कहा कि उम्र के कारण उन्हें अपनी फिटनेस पर और ज्यादा फोकस करने की जरूरत है। 


धोनी ने कहा, 'जब मैंने टेस्ट क्रिकेट से संन्यास लिया, तब से फिटनेस की बातें शुरू हुईं। जब बात आईपीएल की है तो जब हम टीम के साथ बैठते, तब मैं मन बना चुका होता कि मुझे टॉप ऑर्डर में उतरना होगा क्योंकि उम्र के लिहाज से यदि मैं निचले क्रम पर उतरूंगा तो काफी मुश्किलें होंगी।' धोनी ने आईपीएल के 11वें सीजन में 16 मैच खेले जिनमें कुल 455 रन बनाए। उन्होंने 3 अर्धशतक भी जड़े।

पूर्व भारतीय कप्तान ने कहा, 'मैं यह सुनिश्चित करना चाहता था कि मैच जीतने की जिम्मेदारी उठाई जाए, लेकिन जब मैं निचले क्रम पर उतरता तो खुद को ही समय नहीं दे पाता। जब मैं ऊपरी क्रम में बल्लेबाजी की बात करता हूं तो इसका मतलब 3, 4 या 5वें नंबर पर बल्लेबाजी करना नहीं बल्कि ओवर्स की संख्या के बारे में है।' 

उन्होंने कहा, 'जब अंबाती रायुडू ने नंबर-4 पर बल्लेबाजी करना शुरू किया तो मुझे उन्हें वह जगह देनी थी क्योंकि वह हमारी टीम के लिए सबसे ज्यादा रन बनाने वाले बल्लेबाज थे। इसलिए जब उन्हें टीम की जरूरत के हिसाब से उतरना पड़े तो भी उन्हें नंबर-4 पर ही खेलना होता क्योंकि वह उस पोजिशन के लिए सबसे उपयुक्त थे।' 

36 वर्षीय धोनी ने साथ ही कहा कि आईपीएल में मिडिल ऑर्डर में खेलने से उन्हें ज्यादा आक्रामक होने का मौका मिला। उन्होंने कहा, 'जब मैं बल्लेबाजी करने उतरता तो मुझे आक्रामक अंदाज में खेलना पड़ता। ऐसा इसलिए भी था क्योंकि यदि मैं आउट भी हो जाऊं तो आने वाले बैट्समैन को मौका मिले और वे टीम को जीत दिला सकें, जो जरूरत भी होती।' 

माही के नाम से मशहूर धोनी ने कहा, 'हम आईपीएल में अपने बैटिंग ऑर्डर को ज्यादा प्रयोग नहीं कर सके क्योंकि शेन वॉटसन, अंबाती रायुडू, सुरेश रैना, मैं और ड्वेन ब्रावो, सभी ने रन बनाए जिससे हमें मदद मिली। हालांकि मेरी शुरुआत से ही प्लानिंग ऐसी टीम बनाने की थी जिसमें गहराई हो और हर कोई बल्लेबाजी करने में सक्षम हो। इससे मुझे भी मैदान पर खुलकर खेलने का मौका मिलता।'

IPL Second Qualifier KKR vs SRH at Eden Garden Kolkata

Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad at Eden Garden Kolkata





KKR have ticked all the privilege confines theior past few IPL 2018 matches, with four wins on run. Table-toppers Sunrisers, then again, have slipped subsequent to completing over the alliance table; they currently have 4 back to back lost matches behind them. 

Call it carelessness or the absence of execution from their center request, SRH have lost four straight diversions, something that will be a reason for worry to Kane Williamson's group. Ostensibly the best playing side of IPL 2018, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma conveying reliably alongside the monstrously gifted Rashid Khan, Sunrisers will get a kick out of the chance to extricate whatever juice is accessible from the Eden Gardens track. 

Who has the edge in the KKR versus SRH qualifier 2? 

The energy is firmly for Dinesh Karthik's Kolkata Knight Riders, which will likewise vigorously rely upon their home leverage. Thus, it will require an extraordinary exertion from the Kane Williamson-drove side to stop the resurgent KKR and come back to winning ways. On the off chance that they do, they will meet Chennai Super Kings in the last match, to be played on Sunday (May 27) and have a reasonable possibility of avenging their misfortunes in the previous three IPL 2018 amusements played against the M S Dhoni-drove side. 

The first to fit the bill for the IPL 2018 playoffs in the wake of dispensing with Delhi Daredevils, Sunrisers Hyderabad started to see a slide in Pune, when their famous knocking down some pins assault neglected to shield 180 against Chennai Super Kings. At that point, they went ahead to lose to RCB, KKR and again CSK in resulting recreations. SRH's concern has been their batting, vigorously dependent on captain Kane Williamson, the present 'Orange Cap' holder with 685 keeps running at a normal of 57.05. Their most recent thrashing in Qualifier 1 will hurt them the most as they had the match in their pocket, with CSK battling at 113/8 out of 18 overs while pursuing 140. Be that as it may, Williamson's system to get Carlos Brathwaite to bowl an over at the passing reverse discharges. The West Indian spilled 20 keeps running in the eighteenth over. Hyderabad will now have the enormous choice cerebral pain as they settle on the fifth and 6th bowler for the present match. 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (9 wickets) will likewise need to start thinking responsibly and supplement the Afghan wrist spinner Rashid Khan (18 wickets). Siddharth Kaul (19 wickets) has been SRH's best bowler in IPL 2018, with predictable endeavors toward the begin and passing overs. Williamson will likewise have some huge gaps to connect to the batting office. Out for a 'brilliant duck' against CSK, Shikhar Dhawan (437 runs) should meet people's high expectations, however it is the center request that has made more issues for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Manish Pandey (284) and Yusuf Pathan (212) have been flops and their failure to give the fundamental muscle in the center overs is a worry. 

Then again, there will be no such issues to handle for KKR captain Dinesh Karthik, who may hope to run with an unaltered playing 11. Astonishment decision as Kolkata Knight Riders commander after the flight of their best pioneer Gautam Gambhir, Karthik is amidst the type he could ever imagine, averaging 54.44 from 15 matches. Two wins short of snatching the title, Karthik will need to go full throttle in a champion season for the calm Tamil Nadu cricketer. 

Kolkata Knight Riders' greatest quality has been the group's capacity to stand up and perform in the event that somebody comes up short. In the Eliminator, opener Sunil Narine neglected to give the group a blazing begin yet Andre Russell's unbeaten 25-ball 49 guaranteed that the group finished on a twist and disposed of Rajasthan Royals. Narine was ineffectual as a bowler, as well, yet any semblance of Kuldeep Yadav (16 wickets) and Piyush Chawla (13 wickets) clutched their undertakings, while Russell and youthful Prasidh Krishna drove the pace assault. 

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) playing 11 probables for IPL Qualifier 2: Dinesh Karthik, Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Javon Searles, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna 

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) playing 11 probables for IPL Qualifier 2: Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan, Wriddiman Saha or Sreevats Goswami, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan or Deepak Hooda, Carlos Braithwaite or Alex Hales, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Sandeep Sharma 

Here are a couple of things to think about the Kolkata Knight Riders versus Sunrisers Hyderabad (KKR versus SRH) coordinate (IPL Qualifier 2) to be played at Eden Gardens in Kolkata, the two groups' players who could demonstrate helpful, and who has said what before the conflict: 

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players who may demonstrate convenient in IPL Qualifier 2: Dinesh Karthik and Sunil Narine are the two batsmen which assumed an imperative part for KKR's prosperity. Sunil Narine gave the truly necessary push in the highest point of the batting request while Dinesh Karthik assumed a match victor part down the request. Additionally, the vivacious execution of KKR in IPL 2018 can be credited as an achievement of all players as six KKR batsmen had scored 250 or more runs. Chris Lynn has batted mindfully – regardless of whether he hasn't possessed the capacity to struck the ball the way he is known for in IPL 2018, while Robin Uthappa has struck the ball sweetly, with the exception of when he's endeavored the draw shot. Like the past match, KKR will for the most part rely upon spinners in IPL Qualifier 2 while pacer Andre Russell and Prasidh Krishna must rehash their demise over execution in IPL Qualifier 2 to confine SRH inexpensively. The turn trio of Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine will be at the core of KKR's rocking the bowling alley designs. Every single one of them is assaulting by nature and has knocked down some pins a match-winning spell at any rate once in the season; together, they've gathered 42 wickets which represent about half of the wickets taken by KKR bowlers. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) players may demonstrate helpful today: Kane Williamson has batted in IPL 2018 like numerous would bat in a fantasy. The SRH commander has amassed 661 runs so far in IPL 2018; he has made 8 half-hundreds of years in 14 visits to the wrinkle. His last thump – 81 against RCB – is effortlessly among the finest T20 thumps ever. Williamson conveys a component of immaculateness to batting in T20s. In the last diversion, however, he rose up out of his customary range of familiarity and played a couple of strokes one isn't acquainted with seeing him play. Among the others that SRH need to flame are Shikhar Dhawan, who has been in incredible shape in white-ball cricket, and Alex Hales. The Sunrisers require their most-experienced bowler – Bhuvneshwar Kumar – to strike a rich pull. The last time he went by Kolkata, he gathered his best figures of the season – 3 for 26. Rashid Khan is the one other bowler destined to do a lot of harm with the ball; even the best batsmen have thought that it was hard to peruse the spinner from Afghanistan. The young leggie, who has 18 wickets this season, will be aware of his dreary record against KKR; he completed wicket-less in both the class organize matches against KKR. 

Prasidh Krishna helps me to remember Bumrah, says KKR rocking the bowling alley mentor Heath Streak: Pacer Prasidh Krishna has been the find of the season for Kolkata Knight Riders and knocking down some pins mentor Heath Streak has gone to the degree of contrasting the 22-year-old and Jasprit Bumrah. Krishna stifled Rajasthan Royals' pursuit, surrendering only three keeps running in the eighteenth over to come back with a clean 1/28 as Kolkata booked a conflict with Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second IPL Qualifer. "That over was world class... It helps me to remember folks like Jasprit Bumrah who went ahead the scene doing precisely what he is doing. He is one of those names IPL has uncovered and he is becoming famous," the previous Zimbabwe chief Streak told columnists at the group inn. The Karnataka pacer was at first called to bowl at the nets yet the establishment gave him an open door after damage to Under-19 World Cup winning pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti. Naming him a brilliant and thinking bowler, Streak stated: "He has conveyed another measurement to the group his pace as well as his tallness. He is truly utilizing his alternatives and varieties well... 

Hyderabad will discover Eden Gardens wicket troublesome in IPL Qualifier 2, says Kuldeep Yadav: Hot on the foot sole areas of making the Indian Premier League (IPL) Qualifier 2 in the wake of posting a 25-run prevail upon Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator, Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav said their next rivals Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) won't think that its simple to acclimate to the Eden Gardens strip. Sunrisers Hyderabad, who lost to Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 1 at Mumbai will get another opportunity to achieve the summit conflict against KKR on Friday. Be that as it may, Kuldeep felt, the men in purple's 'home leverage' should hold them in great stead as the Wankhede Stadium contribute Mumbai is not quite the same as the one at Eden. "For us, it's anything but difficult to play here. It's home ground for us. We are extremely used to the conditions. Clearly, it will be troublesome for them to originate from Mumbai and play here. The wicket is We need two-three good overs to change course of game, says Saha: Despite coming into the Qualifier 2 on the back of four straight losses, Sunrisers Hyderabad wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha feels "two-three overs" can change their fortunes in the big-ticket game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Friday. "We have forgotten the past. We have been told to forget the last match and get ready for this match. We are not thinking about the four losses. We know that two-three overs can change the course of a game in T20," Saha told reporters on the sidelines of their practice at the Eden Gardens.

Sunrisers were the first to qualify for the playoffs but slumped to defeats to Royal Challengers Bangalore, KKR and Chennai Super Kings twice. Saha though said, KKR having won four matches on the bounce won't impact much as Sunrisers are ready for any situation. "We started off well. We could not win because lack of finishing ability. We will play to win tomorrow without thinking of the consequences."

Deeply sorry for RCB's forgettable IPL season, says Virat Kohli: India and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli today said he was "deeply sorry" for RCB's failure to make the ongoing Indian Premier League's knockout stage and vowed to turn things around next season. RCB finished third from bottom after losing eight of their 14 matches, let down by a weak bowling attack and inconsistent batting which was heavily reliant on Kohli and AB de Villiers. "We could not pull our way and we are not very proud of how the season went for us. (I'm) deeply hurt by how we played... deeply sorry for not living up to the expectations of the fans," Kohli said in a video posted on his Twitter page. "Having said that, it is all a part of life and you cannot always get what you want. It's upto the players to understand what to do about this the next season, really want to turn things around next season," he added.
