Are our bowlers slackers?

Thursday, March 19, 2009
After watching the India New Zealand clash where India started off quite spectacularly before Vettori did his bit, I couldn't help but get a sense of deja vu. A similar situation had arisen during the Asia Cup in 1999 where we had Pakistan struggling at 20 something for 5 and ultimately let them reach 170 odd. It was partly due to the heroics of Moin and partly due to our boys slacking. 

It would make for an interesting analysis to see how does India fare in general after getting to a vantage point with a good start.

The sample space could be all those matches where India has managed to get at least 5 wickets within a span of 100 runs and seeing the % increase in score hence.

I remeber looking at a stat which said, India has conceded large number of runs after aking the first few wickets... I can remember the heroics of Chris Cairns, Kamran Akmal, Craig MAcmillan,Gilly, Monkey Symmmo and others just like that!!!

@Varun: Yes yes, I remember.

@mahesh: Obviously we need to do an empirical study to better understand, but all I am saying is that it would make for an interesting analysis.
