Shockingly poor technique

August 3, 2011 1 comment

I happened to watch a bit of Indian batting in the ongoing India-England test series, but it was just a series of cringe-worthy moments one after the other. Mukund, Raina, Yuvraj and Dhoni – these guys just have no clue about batting technique at all. They don’t even know the basics of batting in test cricket. I don’t know if it is the ODIs or the T20s that have ruined these guys, but if this is what mainstream Indian batting is going to look like when Dravid, Laxman and Tendulkar retire, then India would be lucky to be rated in Top 5 test teams, leave alone being the best.
