Cricket News Australian batsmen need to learn from Kohli, says Graeme Hick

first_imgMelbourne : Disappointed at Australia’s abject surrender in the first innings, batting coach Graeme Hick has asked his batsmen to show more intent and learn the art of pacing innings from India skipper Virat Kohli. After the hosts were bundled out for a meagre 151 in 66.5 overs on day three of the third Test, Hick stressed on the need to develop awareness of the game and gave the example of Kohli’s first innings 204-ball 82-run knock.“We spoke about how Kohli went about it. We knew (Cheteshwar) Pujara, even Kohli, one of the most explosive batters, got to 20 off 25, 26 balls, then the rest of his innings took whatever it was,” Hick said on SEN Radio on Saturday.Also Read | Yearender 2018: Virat Kohli’s list of dodgy decisions hurt Indian cricket team“For the best player in the world to change his innings and play like that, if you can’t be on the same field as him and watch him and learn from what he is doing, then you are in the wrong space.“There are certainly thing our players can take out of that. It takes a lot of discipline, a lot of patience and, on top of that, you have got to bat with intent,” he added.Australia’s batting woes against India at the MCG have sparked debate about their technique and the impact of the Big Bash League on batsmen.Hick said it was disappointing to see his hard work come undone and urged his batsmen to learn quickly and find the right balance.“It’s disappointing as a head coach. You feel if you are putting the work in and doing the right things, over a period of time, the players learn. Unfortunately, it’s not the easiest thing to learn out in the middle at the MCG of the Boxing Day Test match,” said the former England batsman.Also Read | Vodafone revises its Rs 399 prepaid plan, reduces data by 14GB“You have got to learn quickly in international cricket these days because you don’t get a lot of time to remedy what you might feel is wrong.”Australia scored 258 for eight in their second innings after Pat Cummins top-scored with an unbeaten 61.

FH : Syracuse focused on winning Big East in midst of ACC move

first_img Comments Published on September 21, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Stephen: | @Stephen_Bailey1 Ange Bradley called Syracuse University’s impending move to the Atlantic Coast Conference a distraction.The SU head coach is focused on leading her team to a Big East championship this season. And Bradley said she wants her players focused on the 2011 competition rather than worrying about a change that won’t take place until the majority of the team has graduated.‘It’s a distraction,’ Bradley said. ‘It’s the future. And in sport, if you think of anything beyond the moment, you’re not going to get where you need to be.’But once the 27-month waiting period does roll around, Bradley and No. 5 Syracuse will face a much tougher in-conference schedule. The Orange (5-2, 1-0 Big East) has competed against many ACC schools in recent years, including matches this season against No. 1 North Carolina and Wake Forest. However, competing with these teams every year and facing them in the postseason conference tournament will be a new challenge.For now, Bradley is locked in on this weekend’s slate of games. The Orange has a conference game at Louisville (6-2, 1-0 Big East) on Friday before returning home Sunday to play host to Boston University (4-3, 0-0 America East).AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBradley’s reaction did not pertain to what the move will do on the field for the Orange in the future. Rather, she said she was glad SU was making one of the initial moves in the re-landscaping of college sports. That’s better than waiting and possibly being forced into a situation in which the university does not have full control.‘It’s something that is clearly great for our university academically, athletically and I applaud the visionary method of (Athletic Director) Dr. (Daryl) Gross and (Chancellor) Nancy Cantor for being proactive and not reactive,’ Bradley said.Earlier this season, Syracuse lost to the then-No. 2 Tar Heels in Chapel Hill, N.C., a location and team the Orange will become increasingly familiar with in the future. SU assistant coach Steve Simpson was already accustomed to facing UNC, as he coached at Maryland from 1995-2003.Coming from the ACC, Simpson said he isn’t worried about the increased competition and sees the Orange as a threat to the Tar Heels, just as much as the Tar Heels are a threat to SU‘It’s no different than this year. We played them this year,’ Simpson said. ‘… They’re looking at us as being a quality opponent as well. It’s not like we’re just looking up, they’re looking up as well when they look at us.’But in the Big East, every other team — excluding No. 4 Connecticut — is undoubtedly looking up at the Orange. Shifting conferences will mean more than playing UNC. It will mean playing the likes of No. 6 Boston College and No. 9 Duke every year, among other stronger, faster teams.It will also end the dominance Syracuse has pressed on the Big East under Bradley. SU is 21-4 in the Big East in the four-plus years under its head coach, so it’s easy to see why moving to the ACC will harshly toughen up SU’s schedule.The Orange has certainly held its own against ACC competition, defeating then-No. 1 Maryland in 2008 and Boston College in the opening round of the 2009 NCAA tournament. Overall, Syracuse is 4-4 against ACC opponents under Bradley.‘It will be very interesting because there are a lot of very good teams there, and we’re a good team,’ Simpson said. ‘So it’s more sharks in the ocean.’Freshman goalkeeper Sophia Openshaw is one of the four rookies on the team that will be at SU when the transfer occurs, assuming the 27-month wait is not shortened.Openshaw grew up in Annapolis, Md., just 30 miles east of the Maryland’s campus in College Park. She understands the challenges presented by competing in the ACC and said she is ready to dive in headfirst.‘In playing them every year, I’m pretty confident that we have what it takes to play in that conference,’ Openshaw said.But 27 months is still a long ways away.Bradley said she has not even spoken to her team about the conference change. She is more concerned with winning the Big East this season than competing in the ACC in the future.‘I don’t really think about it right now,’ Bradley said. ‘I’m trying to win a Big East championship.’sebail01@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
