explanation for letting Jadeja bat for a little longer and get his fifty in the first Test at Kanpur (Source: AP) Top News What does a four-day finish mean to Virat Kohli To start with it ensures there would no 630 am wake-up call next morning The India captain says he doesn’t think too much about the Test rankings but getting to the No 1 does offer the incentive to do better Kohli carried the dressing room happiness to the press conference and was in a cheeky mood “Well tried” he said when a reporter asked him if the crowd support helped India get the marginal decisions in their favour He was jovial and spoke like a leader as he discussed Ravindra Jadeja and Wriddhiman Saha’s batting contributions WATCH VIDEO: BCCI To Cancel India-New Zealand Series Here’s Why He offered an interesting explanation for letting Jadeja bat for a little longer and get his fifty in the first Test at Kanpur “These two guys (Jadeja and Saha) are batting at positions that are very important in Test cricket For them to understand their own abilities and get confident – that was one of the main reasons why we waited for three more overs in Kanpur; to let Jadeja cross 50 Because that way you understand how to get to that again and again “If you declare on 45 he will never get that extra boost of having gotten a half-century in a Test match So it was all about building confidence for a particular individual because we understand how important his character can be in a situation where maybe you need to play out an hour or you need 40 quick runs again And that is the guy who is confident and can do the job for you “So as a captain I think the contribution by Jadeja in the first game and Saha here (were the prime gains) Saha has been doing really well this year I wish him well to keep going Obviously a ‘keeper coming good for you is an added bonus So I feel these two have to be the biggest gains (from the two Tests)” he said READ:ICC Test rankings: India’s rise result of a sustainedeffort Attention shifted to young players sporting a beard Even Saha seems to have become a bit fond of facial hairs Kohli laughed at the possibility “I don’t think Saha gets a stubble so it’s very difficult for him He will have to keep shaving for two days…” Cue laughter Winning is very important to him but like most captains Kohli wants success through a collective effort “If all of your players perform nothing like it Because you don’t want to sit in the changing room and see a couple of sad faces To be honest when everyone contributes it’s a happy environment “This was a Test match that had to be fought out which took character from all the players This was a Test match that players took as an opportunity to build character rather than pressure The more we win Test matches like this the more we understand how Test cricket is played – how Test matches can be won “So we can keep repeating those things It’s all about feeding those things into your head and keep repeating it That’s what consistency is Obviously individual brilliance one-odd game someone will get a magnificent hundred in the fourth innings and win you the game You will feel very happy but as a captain I think this win is far more satisfying than individual brilliance winning you a game” READ: India rise to top of Test rankings with emphatic win at EdenGardens To be consistent a team needs a lot of batting work behind the scenes Kohli’s India prepare to deal with variety of conditions “The batting work basically… See obviously you prepare for conditions but you don’t want to get too much into conditions that you forget the mental set-up mental side of things I think mental set-up is far more important A person who is feeling positive and optimistic about playing on a certain kind of wicket he will get runs A person who is thinking too much about conditions or ‘what if the ball does this or the ball does that’ he will not get runs So what we work on a daily basis is clarity of mind more than perfect bat position” Three days ago Ajinkya Rahane spoke about how the contributions from lower-order is helping the top half to be in a better mental state Kohli concurred “For the tail as well it’s very important to be clear You can get a sense of the situation… If the other side is looking to save runs then you as a tail (ender) you can collect a few more than you can get But if they are putting pressure on you then obviously you want to bat it out So it’s all about the make-up of the head So we work on the mental set-up more than the technical side of things” The No 1 Test ranking had to come up and the skipper once again put things in perspective “I mentioned this before also; rankings are something that are just an incentive for what you do on the field I didn’t even know how many points difference we had to get to No1 We just want to win every game we play It’s as simple as that “It doesn’t mean that we take our foot off the pedal in Indore We don’t drop intensity there We don’t drop our character; our vision to win a Test match for the country It’s our responsibility to keep Test cricket where it belongs and if we play cricket like this – you saw how engaged the crowd was they like to see exciting cricket and we have to provide it” Kohli said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Dhiraj Nayyar | Published: August 12 2010 2:17 am Related News You may ask why India should at all get excited and see dividend in an event thatwhen it first began in 1930was once known as the British Empire Gamesand which continues to feature sports like lawn bowls and rugby sevens played mostly by members of the white Commonwealth Heres why Leave aside the origins and other peculiarities and you will find that the Commonwealth Games (CWG) are the third biggest multi-disciplinary sporting event in the worldafter the Olympics and Asian Games So they are by no means insignificant in the hierarchy of major global sporting events Secondand this is important in the context of Indian sportwe perform rather well in the CWGmuch better than we do at the Olympics or even the Asian Games Consider the final medals tally for the 2006 CWG in Melbourne Indiawith 22 gold medalsfinished fourthwith Australia heading the tally Importantlywe finished ahead of countries like South AfricaJamaica and Kenya which routinely perform better than us at the Olympics Incidentallyan Indian sportsmanthe shooter Samresh Jungwas named as the best sportsman of the 2006 CWG (with five gold medals) Contrast this with our performance at the Beijing Olympics where we won just one gold medalor with the 2006 Asian Games where we won only 10 gold medals and finished eighth on the medals tally In factat the Asian Gamesour performance has been declining over time When we hosted the first ever Asian Games in 1951we finished second in the overall medals tally In 1982when we hosted the Asiad for a second timewe finished fifth on table with 13 gold medals At the CWGon the other handour performance has improved over time; in 1982we had finished only sixth on table with six gold medals That we perform well gives us some credibility while hosting the CWGsomething we would be sorely lacking if we wanted to host an Olympics In a country starved of sporting success and sporting heroes outside cricketit is no mean achievement to win 22 gold medals in a major international sporting event Even if these Games lack the profile of the Olympics or the Asian Gameswinning medals helps sportspersons earn recognition and perhaps even more importantly sponsorships and other opportunities to compete at even higher levels At least one sport in India has received considerable fillip from success in the CWG: shootingwhich brought India 17 out of its 22 gold medals in the 2006 edition Jaspal Rana and Samresh Jung among others made a name for themselves with a handful of gold medals at the CWG A certain Abhinav Bindra won a silver and a bronze at Melbourne in 2006 before clinching gold at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 In boxingAkhil Kumarquarter finalist at the Olympics and now one of the famous Bhiwani trioalso made a a mark by winning the gold at CWG 2006 In shortthe games are a crucial stepping stone for Indian sportspersons even as they aspire to higher goals For the cynicalit is easy enough to explain why the usually dismal story of Indian sport plays to a rather different script at the CWG Top of the list of explanations is the simple fact that the worlds two pre-eminent sporting powersChina and the USdo not participate in the CWG Even some of the leading second-rung sporting powers like RussiaGermany and Japan are absent But if one were instead to take a more optimistic view of thingsit is possible to view the absence of the US and China in particular as a boon and opportunity for others One can even find enough top-class competition for the Games not to be a walkover for anyonenot least India RememberBritainAustralia and Canada are sporting powerhouses in their own rightand countries like Kenya and Jamaica are world leaders in various track and field events Unfortunatelythe complete absence of an imaginative and intelligent public relations campaign by either the Indian Olympic Association or the government has ensured that the average citizen has not been told about the many sporting merits of the Games Its a similar lack of imagination that prevents us from looking at the 50-odd Commonwealth group of countries (with two billion people) as an opportunityrather than a waste of time Consider how different things could be if we stopped viewing the Commonwealth as a club of former British colonies presided over by the Queenviewing it instead as simply a club of the English-speaking world At a time when most important intergovernmental groupings are either global or regionalor based on economic cloutthe Commonwealth stands out for its eclectic blend of 50 odd nations that cuts across five continentscontains countries big and small (India vs Nauru)countries developed and countries developing (Canada vs Lesotho) Together they represent a diversity of interestswhich because of that very diversity need not always be in conflict or competition like in less diversified groupings That leaves plenty of room open for cooperation The absence of China and the USthe two pre-eminent political powers of our timepresents an opportunity for other countriesparticularly India The UK can after all only do so muchgiven the historical baggage it carries But for the Commonwealths largest democracy and fastest growing economythere may be plenty to be gainedat least in soft power termsvia closer engagement with the rest of the non-American English-speaking world But first we must be convinced that it is worthwhile That debate can continuebut there is little time left to be convinced about the 2010 Games Perhaps its time to bring forth the Indian
