selfies with Mahendra Singh Dhoni as he leaves the ground after attending a training session on Wednesday (AP Photo) Top News Targeting the rival captain to upset his team’s composure is not a typical English method The Aussies champion it Of late however the English seems to have taken a leaf out of the book of their antipodean brothers Maybe after being overwhelmed by Virat Kohli this is their last chance saloon Unfortunately though they are getting their timings wrong Jake Ball has played three Tests and four ODIs in his nascent international career He bowled well on a belter at Pune taking three wickets and conceding less than seven runs per over Fair play to him Collectively however the England bowling once again bowed in humble reverence to India captain’s mastery and Kedar Jadhav’s blitzkrieg But Ball might have detected something — apparently oblivious to the rest of the world — that offered him a glimmer of hope Kohli could be undone by a bouncer/ short ball barrage felt the 25-year-old fast bowler “I think that under the lights where it may skid on a bit more — you can use the shorter ball a little bit more… But I think it’s just trying to mix it up as much as you can… try not to let him get settled and hope he hits one up in the air” Ball told BBC Radio 5 live “We have got plans for him and hopefully we can put them into practice in a couple of days’ time” he added As an England cricketer Ball is entitled to his observation especially that Kohli has been the biggest thorn in the visitors’ flesh over the past three months But a case study of Kohli’s limited-overs performance on bouncier surfaces makes things a little lopsided in the batsman’s favour In Australia he has scored 476 runs in 12 ODIs including two hundreds In South Africa he has accumulated 224 runs in eight ODIs with 87 not out being his highest Mind Kohli hasn’t played in South Africa since 2013 when his upgrade as a batsman to the sublime level didn’t happen Of course Kohli doesn’t require a truckload of statistics to attest his command over the short ball Numbers just serve as reference points And little wonder then that KL Rahul made light of Ball’s future plans “Good luck to them He (Kohli) has so many runs under him… A lot of runs came off the short ball None of us worries about the short ball We like to make runs off short-pitched deliveries Knowing him watching him score so many centuries don’t think it will be a problem” the India opener said ahead of the second ODI to be played on another featherbed at the Barabati Stadium here on Thursday England’s Jos Buttler tried to put things in perspective “The bouncer in one-day cricket if it is used well it’s a really effective tool Obviously you have got to be spot on… As a bowler you could be called for wides as well but if you use it well it’s a really effective weapon As a batsman if you know someone has got a good short ball it makes you hang back a little more” Unlike Jimmy Anderson Ball however didn’t sound like a defeatist describing the India skipper as an “unbelievable player” Anderson’s comment during the Mumbai Test was unbecoming of a great bowler “I just think any technical deficiencies he (Kohli) has got aren’t in play out here The wickets just take that out of the equation” the England quick had said on the heels of Kohli’s 235 – his third in a calendar year – at Wankhede The common factor between Ball and Anderson’s comments is poor timing England lost the Test series in Mumbai succumbing to an innings defeat They failed to defend 350 in the first ODI at Pune as India counter-attacked from 63 for four to clinch it After scoring 655 runs at 10961 in five Tests Kohli made a 105-ball 122 in the ODI series opener Out of form skipper Interestingly England captain Eoin Morgan’s batting form appears to be presenting his team with plenty of problems Over the last 12 months the left-hander has scored 356 runs in 12 ODIs with 68 being his highest His average 2966 during this period is way below his career average of 3711 He is not connecting his trademark reverse sweeps well Bowlers are getting him out sticking to an outside the off stump line And Morgan is perhaps keeping Jonny Bairstow out of the playing XI despite the fact that the latter has been in superb form An allround option a limited-overs specialist like Sam Billings is warming the bench as well Buttler preferred to look at the positive side saying: “I think it shows the strength and depth of the side” At the same time he put the onus on the team management and selectors: “Getting them in the XI is the job of the selectors and captain and there’s great competition in our squad” Buttler also defended his captain “He (Morgan) is probably one of the first revolutionary players for England and that probably shows in the group in the way the people look to him the way he is taking his career forward and the way he champions guys to play He gives guys a lot of confidence to go out there and play in that fashion He’s very calm under pressure a very forward thinking guy” All said and done Morgan needs to step on the gas to be an automatic pick after this series The OCA void The problem with the Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) is that all its 17 office-bearers have become ineligible after the Supreme Court’s January 2 and 3 orders No one at the OCA
