The old adage that you dont win a Test in one session but can certainly lose it applied perfectly around the time Virat Kohli took over as captain in January 2015. During a stretch of just away Tests, they competed well but kept losing their way.In Durban, they went from 265 for 4 to 334 all out on a flat pitch and never recovered. In Auckland, they nearly pulled off an incredible chase of 407 but lost two wickets just before the new ball to eventually lose by 40 runs. In Southampton, they were bowled out in two sessions in their second innings. In Adelaide they were 299 for 5 in a chase of 364, but lost five wickets for 16 runs. In Brisbane, they went toe to toe with Australia for three days before an unsettled session on the fourth morning after a practice pitch mishap cost them the game. In Galle, they won seven sessions before Dinesh Chandimal took the Test away from them.For whatever reason - perhaps lack of fitness, concentration and mental strength - they were letting Tests slip. The matches they have won after that Galle Test have obviously involved hard work, but they havent been against sides that just keeps refusing to roll over. In difficult conditions - both underfoot and overhead - New Zealand, battling injuries even before the start of the series, have done themselves immense credit in answering the count after every blow.That is precisely why this series win has to be one of their more special events in Indias unbeaten run of 12 Tests - nine wins and three draws with weather playing a significant part. This Test, in particular, was significant because this was played in conditions that brought New Zealands quicks into the game.It has been India outlasting their opponents both with the bat and the ball throughout the series. Having squandered the toss advantage to end the first day of the series at 291 for 9, they came back and added 27 crucial runs on the second morning. Then when New Zealand put together partnerships, the bowlers kept pulling out tricks.Coming into Kolkata, Anil Kumble said he didnt need to worry about the pitch because his side had all bases covered. Their top-order batting is not one of them yet, but the lower order once again covered up for them. Kohli, and his batsmen can be grateful that under him there has not been one Test where the lower order has not made a contribution with the bat. Since 2014, Indias lower order has contributed the highest proportion of its team runs among all sides. On this pitch, though, you would have thought New Zealand fast bowlers would be able to run through.Not through Wriddhiman Saha, no. Even in the second innings, New Zealand refused to give up, reducing India to 106 for 6, but Saha and Rohit Sharma came back hard at them. New Zealand once again found out they just couldnt go punch-for-punch with this team.This was mostly a new-ball pitch where you got limited periods where the quicks became lethal -with the new ball and under the flood lights to be precise. Extreme humidity had rendered reverse swing insignificant. So there were about 25 overs with the new ball, and then there was little over half an hour under the lights on day two in which to create inroads. India took four wickets in the first 25 overs, and then snuffed out three more n that half hour under artificial light three more. Six of the seven wickets fell to pace.Every time New Zealand have had a partnership, it has been instructive to observe India on the field. They have refused to look flat or go on the defensive. There will obviously be bigger tests in foreign conditions, but things have been allowed to drift at any point of time. They have given their plan A a good go but havent always had a plan B.In this series, they have burst through every small window of opportunity. The spinners changed angles to break partnerships twice in Kanpur. Whenever India have managed to get the ball changed, Mohammed Shami has reversed it. Ask BJ Watling who has fallen to it thrice. A green pitch brought Bhuvneshwar Kumar in ahead of Umesh Yadav, and he lived his dream of taking a home five-for.Most importantly perhaps Kumble has brought in the maturity that this side required. That extra batsman, that support for Cheteshwar Pujara has brought in the stability that a Test team requires.This is a long season. There will be pressure of expectations, there will be demands of fitness, at some point they may even need to rotate resources and perhaps during ODIs, they will likely be asked to come back after losing a toss, but now is the time to savour fruits their persistence and skill have borne.

Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys China . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. Jason Holder, the West Indies captain, felt the gulf between the regions first-class structure and the international level stood exposed, as they lost by 237 runs in Gros Islet to concede the four-Test series to India with one match still to play.It is going to be difficult. Test match cricket is very different from our first-class cricket at this point of time. I have had the privilege to play first-class cricket and Ive also had the privilege to play Test cricket and I can see a vast disparity between the two, he said. It is a situation where many of us coming to international cricket and are trying to learn on our job. It is definitely not easy, but it is something that we are faced with and I hope the guys can learn quickly.Hope that our guys bodies are accustomed to the workloads of international cricket because it is far different from first-class cricket. For instance you get a first-class game where a fast bowler hardly bowls the amount of overs we have bowled in this series. For the last five to 10 years we have had spinners dominating first-class cricket in terms of wickets taken. So it is a transition that we have to try to open up and adjust to as quickly as possible. It is by no means easy and sometimes we dont make it easy for ourselves.West Indies, who had to bat out a minimum of 87 overs to save the Test, were bowled out for 108 in just 47.3 overs, with just one batsman - Darren Bravo - crossing 20. They had fared only marginally better in the first innings, being bowled out for 225 after being handily placed at 202 for 3 at one stage.We havent been able to put up reasonable first-innings totals which have hampered us in the recent past. If you dont put up a good first-innings total, then you are chasing the game, Holder said. We need to knuckle down. As batsmen, we need to be accountable for our actions. At the top, predominantly, we havent been consistent; not getting starts weve been looking for.Asked to elaborate on the batting struggle, Holderr said it was simply a case of being too overcautious at times, apart from failing to learn from their mistakes in the first innings.ddddddddddddI think the difference from here to Jamaica is that we also spent time but we didnt score, he said. I think most of the batsmen have spent some time initially but they havent tick over the scoreboard as well as we would like. I cant speak for every batsman and it is a situation where each batsman needs to cope, how we are going to score and how we are going to occupy the crease. So sitting here is difficult to answer but all I can say is that the responsibility is on the batsmen at the present time.Holder emphasised the need to string together patches of domination before looking at bigger goals, something the team did sporadically in Jamaica, and then on the first two days in St Lucia before things slipped away from them.At the beginning of the series, I made very clear that we need to show signs of improvement. We have had a really tough tour in Australia in terms of our bowling and I have seen significant improvements in terms of our bowling, Holder said. We have been inconsistent with the bat for quite a while now. You have to make steps forward and you just cant leap. As a baby you need to crawl before you can walk.Definitely winning is a priority but we need to put ourselves in position to win games but the only way we can do that is by taking 20 wickets and at least putting up a very good first innings total in terms of securing the draw and then push for win. But we havent been able to put ourselves in those situations, to be quite frank. I think, moving forward, we need to be more consistent in terms of getting those first-innings total, 350-plus, obviously taking 10 wickets up front and coming back and taking the other 10. I think thats the direction in which we need to move towards. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
