Opens the batting with a T20I 70 with an SR of 170.7! Talk about the ability to play each format according to its unique norms.

Kohli's innings vs NZ: example of how T20 isn't all about power hitting. Batsmen don't have to slog to keep an explosive SR. 10 fours, all along the ground. Not even lofted 4s, just pure classy drives and punches and cuts. Old school cricket.

I hope Ashraful was watching this game, instead of some Hindi movie.

Mahela Jayawardene is also a very classy/copy-book batsman in T20s when in good touch.

Only if our players had 10% of the grit and determination of Kohli.

In such fantastic form. Really enjoyed his innings vs the NZ.

David, Kallis too... and Ian Bell, to some extent. But they are all on the slower side.

Yuvraj performed too, but watch, he will score a duck when he plays for the Tyrants next.

The Kohli method
His numbers are phenomenal, and that's thanks largely to his ability to make a plan and stick to it
Aakash Chopra
September 13, 2012



When they first donned the Indian colours, the likes of Ms Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh were self-assured, resilient, fiercely talented and more. Today, though, Virat Kohli seems to have outmoded his predecessors in a manner that has made him the face of Indian cricket's next generation. He has scored 13 centuries in 90 ODI matches. Those are phenomenal numbers by any yardstick. Look closer, in a comparative framework, and the numbers hit harder. Kumara Sangakkara, for instance, has scored 14 hundreds, 11 of those from No. 3 or higher, in 333 ODIs. Virender Sehwag has scored 15 in 249 matches, and Gautam Gambhir has 11 in 139. These stats, striking as they are, tell us a thing or two about the sort of prospect Kohli is for Indian cricket.

Beat me to it^^. Great article. Here's my favorite excerpt from the same article:

Quote:
If one goes by the exterior - the spiky hair, tattoos, the swagger and arrogance of a confident young man, Kohli epitomises 21st century Indian youth. But the way he bats, especially in the first half of each innings, he seems the antithesis of how young cricketers in India like to bat in this day and age of T20 cricket. These days most young men prefer to go after the bowling right from the beginning, and to keep hitting it till they last. It takes your breath away when it comes off, and looks woeful when it doesn't, but taking a bit of a risk seems to be the new way of living.
Kohli, on the contrary, is old-fashioned when it comes to constructing his innings. Regardless of his personal form, familiarity with the attack and the conditions, he always starts slowly, albeit confidently. At the beginning of an innings, every batsman is slightly edgy and likes to get bat on ball and score a few to get going. This urge to get on with the game is even stronger if you are in good form. It must take immense self-control for Kohli to resist that temptation every time he walks out to bat these days, and to stick to his original plan of biding time.
His self-control at the beginning of every innings is the primary reason for his consistency. Exercising this self-control would be a lot easier for someone who doesn't have as many shots as Kohli does, which makes his self-denial more creditable. His ability to plan meticulously and then diligently follow the plan is the common thread in most of his innings.
Conventional wisdom suggests that the bigger the arc one's bat creates, the more power one generates. The arc starts from the top of the backlift and finishes with the follow-through after playing the shot. The best way to ensure a bigger arc is to allow the top hand to remain in control for as long as possible and extend the arms fully (elbow not bent) after playing the shot. Kohli's bat-swing, however, is not quite how the coaching manuals say it ought to be. He has a relatively short backlift, and an even shorter follow-through. But he generates phenomenal bat speed by flicking his wrists at the point of contact, which in turn generates immense power. The flip side of such a bat-swing is that he is a bottom-hand-dominated player. Once again, though, by delaying his strokes, he has found a way to be equally fluent through the off side.

Kohli scores 50, Raina 38 and Dhoni 18* on a day when all other top Indian batters fail against a spirited Afghanistan. In a format where scoring 30 is being considered as statistically category-worthy, Kohli's averaging 36 with 133 SR. The 23YO's last 3 T20I innings: 68 (142 SR), 70 (172 SR) and 50 (128 SR)

That'd be his very first in T20Is, he'd have played 11 after tonight's match, and I'm looking forward to the occasion. Although he has done just a little bit better in outside the international arena with three 50s in 40 matches, he's simply too great a batsman not be as awesome in T20Is sooner rather than later.

He wants to improve in the shortest format.

Quote:
Amla keen to master Twenty20 cricket
Hashim Amla is yet to translate his success in Tests and ODIs to T20s. But in current form, that may not be far away
Andrew Fernando

Given Hashim Amla's colossal recent form, finding a weakness in his game seems a frivolous exercise. Beyond the mountain of runs, a Test average breaching 65 over the last three years and an ODI average touching 60, he has a gift for playing innings notable as much for their impact as their heft. Amla's reputation as classy, but slow delayed his introduction to limited-overs cricket, but when he arrived in ODIs, his success was almost immediate.

The only format in which he can't claim to be among the best in the world is Twenty20. He has played 10 innings, all as an opener, to score 198 runs at an average of 22 and is yet to record a half-century.

It is not that his cricket is unsuited to the shortest format - he has developed a mindset and ability to score off almost any ball, and few errant deliveries escape the swing of his blade - but for the moment, there is something preventing his success in Twenty20s.

Perhaps he has not yet warmed to the format; a problem not helped by the infrequency of matches. He was less than prolific in his first 34 Tests too, averaging in the low 40s before three centuries in two Tests against India in 2010 burst the dam and heralded the torrent. There has been a concerted effort to tune his game to the ODI format as well, and that has brought spectacular results. Maybe that mental switch has not yet been flipped in Twenty20, and those technical adjustments remain unmade.

^Well, it was Levi who ended up scoring 50. Neither he nor Amla looked particularly comfortable but managed to stay not out and deliver victory anyway.

a lot of batsmen haven't looked comfortable in this t20 WC.

78* by Kohli. A particularly memorable late cut in this one.
