We definitely 50 runs short.
I feel like we cant only really rely on Williamson and Taylor and possibly Latham, the rest of the team are not performing.
Why is it so easy for India to hit fours along the carpet. As I said their bowling is so consistant to a fielding team that are in positions to stop NZ,s batting.
Williamson was a prime example,he got so frustrated he couldnt find the gaps.
Yes, 50 runs short and out with 6 overs left is an improvement
The openers fail. That puts pressure on everybody else who cannot bat as well to bat to their capability plus make up the shortfall. You cant blame the others
They can hit the ball as they arent under any pressure to make up a shortfall. In this game the required RR was always low, no pressure
He did. Because he like the others are playing India but expecting a Sri Lanka score. You are not going to score almost 1100 runs in 3 innings against India, as we did with SL. The batting coach was all about batting with more intent that's a fail, thats asking for trouble if you bat for runs that are not there due to the capability of India. Id like to think that Taylor and Latham realised that and took what runs they could with a view to expanding later. Or maybe they didnt, their slow RR was due to being forced to stay in. That was the correct formula. They were batting at 3.5 runs over over, but later on it was 6.6. Thats what was needed. Thats the missing 50 runs and more, and while India would have batted harder if needed to, a game was definitely on
