- The shorter formats of cricket should be all about attacking when either batting or bowling.
- Is it better to risk to lose the game by more than to lose by less, but not take risks?
- “Organised Chaos” means that a team should attack in a systematic fashion.
- The game should be all out attack.
- There’s no place for being defensive when cricket is played in the shortened format.
- The biggest problem can be to take no risk at all.
- A team must play with domination of the game in mind.
- Without “Ambition” nothing can be achieved in shorter formats of cricket.
- If you are looking to achieve something robustly then a team will be inspirational.
- There should be a plan, but “Random Improvisation” is imperative.
- It will keep the opposing team guessing; what will the team do next.
- The “Random Improvisation” may be as simple as a change in the field, bowling and batting order.
- An example would be; a spinner could open the bowling if the Captain believes that should be the case.
- A pinch hitter could open the batting.
- The field changes may bring about success; it could as simple as having less fielders on the boundary.
- To be successful in the shorter forms of cricket a Captain has to think laterally.
- There should be many different plans in place.
- Only one of the tactics has to succeed in order for it to be worth implementing.
“Tinge of Hope”
- The game has to be mathematically possible to win for there to be a “Tinge of Hope.”
- If there’s still a chance of success then the team must stay positive.
