I've had enough of this frankly. Cricket is a game where good tactics can win you a match. Game awareness is my first point. Say if I'm an outfielder. My aim will be to stay in the game by stopping a four or two but then I also need to remain in a catching position. looking at the game you analyse the batsman's style of play and then adjust accordingly and then inbetween balls you anticipate events. This is only possible if you enjoy fielding. Ijaz Ahmed was good at this. Good game awareness is also the ability to think into the future where you are able to anticipate events and so play accordingly to reach a certain phase, for example if you need to chase ten an over you need to have good game awareness to know what a certain bowler will bowl, which batsman is best suited to the strike and how you are going to run inbetween wickets. Come onto planning, you plan tactics, field placings, you plan events, you plan strategy for batting and bowling but the planning process is separated into two parts, you can plan in training or the dressing room but the need to plan on the ground is more important because events change and you are either in a better position then you planned for in the dressing room or worse, so planning on the spot is also important. Today Wahab bowled just bouncers, where is the full yorker?? These small things add up. Little things add up. Fielding is massive and not just catching. Ground fielding is big these days. An Australian fielder covers more ground in the field and so saves more runs, saving runs not just on the boundary but he stands in a position that makes a batsman think twice about playing the cut for example. Effectively you have taken out a scoring area out of the game and so your bowlers have more margin. Taking your catches is also important. It gives the bowler confidence. 9/10 times a team would go onto score less if you take a catch . Bowlers lose heart when they see miss field after miss field and then drop catches. Pakistan fielders don't dive and they hardly ever win races with the ball to the fence, you watch the best teams and you will see apart from the lazy fast bowler they will win 8 times out of ten because they know how to dive and stop the ball without touching the rope. Pakistan players should have planned at the crease. The moment we saw extra bounce the pitch was no longer 300 so then you should have got together and planned for 270, the bowlers should have planned for a yorker, bumper strategy. Anticipation again taking the bounce into consideration the fielders should have adjusted knowing the cut, pull and slash will be hot. Little things do add up. I've said it before everyone makes mistakes but if you keep on making a mistake you are in fault and deserve to be called out.
