Battle of Eras: The most elegant cover drive
From today I will be starting a special segment on the most elegant players of a particular shot. To begin with I have chosen the shot which gives you the most delight as a batsman but at the same time has a huge risk factor " the cover drive". Do tell me in the comment box if I have missed someone, by the way, these are my personal favorites. Past Brian Lara Justin Langer once said if I had just one dollar to pay and watch someone bat it would be Brian Charles Lara, the prince from Trinidad and Tobago just oozed class. That bat lift, That concentration, That flamboyance Wow.just Wow!!!!. Not only did he play the stroke masterfully but also skillfully with the least risk factor. Check this article- https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/23099776/the-cover-drive-kings Mahela Jayawardene Elegant and delightful, there are no better words to describe this guy's cover drive. Jayawardene steps up whenever his team requires him the most. It seemed every part of his body is playing that shot. Kumar Sangakkara Extend your hands, head towards the ball and the bag leg knee folds down that is what gives Sangakkara his class. Left-handers are so beautiful chee this guy just nails it. Rahul Dravid Rahul Dravid's cover drive appears as if it is a film played in slow motion. The head moves a bit, the front foot comes forward, the back leg just moves a bit across, and then the ball is just ready to reach the boundary fences. Mark Waugh Mark Waugh's cover drive is very similar to Dravid. A master of the leg side, but his laconic cover drives will always be part of my memory. Damien Martyn Probably the purest batsman modern-day cricket has seen. That shot against Chaminda Vaas has just stuck in my mind. Just a forward defense to the boundary. A true Genius!!!! Sachin Tendulkar No words can match this guy just sit back and enjoy Ian Bell Ian Bell was a natural stroke player I rate this cover drive off his very highly. His records might not be the best but his offside strokeplay is exquisite. PRESENT Babar Azam A true cricket fanatic cannot ignore this. Sweet, so sweet is the voice after the impact of bat and ball. I hope he becomes a modern-day great. Babar's drive appears so natural and he appears so much in control. Damn, that shot hits different. Virat Kohli Class, genuine class a gentle front-foot stride and just a push. Kohli just ticks most of the boxes for the most gorgeous cover drive. James Vince You didn't expect him right? Very few have seen Vince playing the cover drive. This cover drive is aesthetically so pleasing. One against Hazlewood just made me go wow. Kane Williamson The most technically gifted and mature batsman in the fab four, love watching him bat especially those back-foot punches are out of this world Rohit Sharma No doubt this guy is languid but at the same time elegant. His timing belongs to a different league Jason Roy Very similar to Rohit Sharma a master of the lofted drives, he looks gorgeous when he gets going. Those lofted drives over mid-off is a treat to watch. The shot is towards the end of the video Footages of some were not available but there was a compilation do see the shots played by Sarkar Root and Carey here. Also, see Liton Das playing the cover drive, it is damn cool. Read this article to see who has the most control over cover drives https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/29106815/best-cover-driver-going-today

India's juggernaut continues !
It was yet another innings win at home, seems fairly routine now. What makes it special is that it happened to be a day/night test and the conditions were "seamer friendly". Gone are the days when one would associate India to be good enough on rank turners only. Their fast bowling group has risen to such heights that no one will have thought of this in their wildest of dreams about 5 years ago. And all that is when they don't have their best bowler(and one of the best in the world), Jasprit Bumrah in the lineup. Two of India's frontline fast bowlers, Shami and Ishant have peaked around the same time. Such is the situation that the bowlers who were supposed to win them matches at home, Jadeja and Ashwin, are nowhere in talks, and that is a fantastic sign for India. Ishant almost picked up a 10 wicket haul, Umesh Yadav picked up 5 in the second innings, and Shami was at his daunting best with his vicious bouncers. Some credit, for such meteoric rise of fast bowling in India, must also go to their skipper, Virat. He has been vocal about his desire for ruthless cricket and his love for raw pace. Such is the attitude he has instilled in his fast bowlers, that all the wickets that Indians were able to get in this test, were by fast bowlers only. It had happened earlier as well, only last year against South Africa, under Virat again. But the fact that this time it happened in home conditions speaks volumes of the changing mindsets and culture in Indian cricket. Not forgetting to mention the batting, it was yet another masterclass from Virat as he became the first Indian to score a century in day/night test, and the way he batted, it seemed he was batting on a different pitch altogether. He was ably supported by Pujara and Rahane, and slowly, these three have formed a formidable middle order for India. So, with this win, they have further consolidated their position at the top of points table for the WTC, and although the final is to played in 2021, and it may seem a bit cocky, it would be a surprise if India doesn't feature in that final !
