Cricket News Did You Know? Rohit Sharma Has Been Dominating Virat Kohli In ODIs Since 2013 – THIS Number Shows It

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are currently on top of the rankings when it comes to ODIs. Both are run-scoring machines. While one decimates the bowling attack at the top, the other clinically dismantles the opposition and ensures chasing any target is a simple task. The combination of Rohit and Kohli have taken Indian cricket to new heights and currently, the duo are the best in the world when it comes to flair, destruction and class. Universally, it is acknowledged that Kohli is one of the modern greats of the game. Numbers prove it. Kohli’s numbers in this decade, when one compares it to all formats, is simply marvellous. On the other hand, Rohit’s career was rejuvenated when he was promoted to open the batting and he has played an integral part in ensuring that India’s top order is given a supreme air of initimidation.When it comes to numbers ever since the start of 2013 till now, when both players featured regularly for the team, Kohli tops that list. In 148 ODIs since 2013, Kohli has 7634 runs at an average of 66.38 and a strike-rate of 97. In this period, he has a staggering 33 fifties and 30 hundreds. Rohit, on the other hand, has 6708 runs in 132 ODIs at an average of close to 59 and a strike-rate of 92.29 with 30 fifties and 25 centuries. On the basis of these numbers, Kohli once again asserts his supremacy. However, a deeper look into the numbers reveals a slightly different story.Story Begins In 2013The cricketing world acknowledges that Kohli is a class apart when it comes to consistency, centuries and run-making ability. However, Rohit has consistently beaten Kohli in this one aspect ever since 2013. This is the highest individual score in the Indian cricket team in every calender year and so far, Rohit is leading 7-0 against Kohli. In 2013, Rohit hit his first double century when he plundered 209 against Australia in the seventh and deciding ODI in Bangalore. In that year, Rohit hit two centuries while Kohli hit four but in that period, the Indian skipper’s highest score was 115*.In 2014, Rohit rewrote the history books when he blasted a world record 264 against Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens. The score still remains the highest ever by a batsman in ODIs. Kohli, on the other hand, smashed 139* against the same opponents in Ranchi to inflict a 5-0 whitewash.Things continued to favour Rohit in 2015. In the ODI against South Africa at Kanpur, he smashed 150 while Kohli’s highest score that year was 138 against the same opponents in Chennai. In that year, Rohit outscored Kohli even when it came to scoring centuries. In 2016, Rohit blasted 171* against Australia in Perth while Kohli smashed 154* against New Zealand in Mohali. 2017 and 2018 have been golden years for Kohli in which he scored over 1000 runs and smashed six centuries in both the years. However, even here, Rohit has trumped Kohli in individual scores.Dominance ContinuesIn 2017, Rohit blasted a world record third double ton in ODIs by hammering 208* against Sri Lanka in Mohali. In 2018, Kohli seemed to have the better of Rohit when he blasted 160* against South Africa in Cape Town. Rohit, though, stole the show yet again when he smashed 162 against West Indies at the Brabourne stadium. In these last three years, both Rohit and Kohli have scored at over 1000 runs and their average is in the high 60s. Rohit’s average in 2018 was a mind-numbing 133.Rohit Sharma has smashed three double tons in the last six years while Kohli has hit over 1000 runs in three consecutive years. (Image credit: Getty Images)In 2019, Kohli is ahead when it comes to runs and average. However, when it comes to individual highs, Rohit is on top again. Kohli smashed 123 against Australia in Ranchi but Rohit smashed 140 against Pakistan in Manchester during the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. This was the tournament in which Rohit smashed five centuries and ended up as the leading run-getter with 648 runs.Rohit has been a monster six-hitter ever since 2013, smashing a total of 209 sixes till now, which means an average of close to 40 sixes an year. The Mumbai right-hander has already crossed the record for most sixes hit by an Indian player in ODIs breaking MS Dhoni’s record. Kohli, on the other hand, is consistency personified with seven out of his 12 years fetching him over 1000 runs.Also Read | No Chris Gayle, Andre Russell In West Indies ODI And T20I Squads In India SeriesFor the average Indian fan, the question of whether Kohli is greater than Rohit is a never-ending debate. However, the fact remains that both are batting at their zenith and Indian cricket is not only receiving a boost but it is making opposition bowlers restless.last_img read more

Kings land veteran free agents Zach Randolph, George Hill

first_imgMOST READ Clippers, Lakers among most-watched NBA teams by Filipinos Thousands join Kalibo Ati-atihan despite typhoon devastation Tobias Harris’ late 3 seals Sixers’ win over Knicks After a rocky start to his career in Portland and New York, Randolph found himself in Memphis. He spent eight years with the Grizzlies, emerging as one of the central figures of the team’s “grit and grind” mantra.He helped Memphis make the playoffs the past seven years, including a trip to the conference final in 2013 when Joerger was an assistant. Joerger took over as head coach the following year and had three years with Randolph, including a trip to the second round in 2015.Randolph, who turns 36 later this month, averaged 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds per game last season and is still considered one of the better post players in the game.He is expected to be a mentor for young big men like Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and Harry Giles, one of the team’s three first-round picks last month.It’s quite a reversal for Randolph, who was considered a malcontent in need of mentoring when he arrived in Memphis in 2009 after failed tenures in Portland, New York and with the Los Angeles Clippers. But he grew into a leadership role with the Grizzlies and became a trusted veteran.ADVERTISEMENT I quit!

Ronald Cortes/Getty Images/AFPThe Sacramento Kings added veteran help to their young roster on Tuesday by agreeing to free-agent contracts with forward Zach Randolph and point guard George Hill.Randolph left Memphis for a $24 million, two-year deal to reunite with former Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger in Sacramento, a person with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot be signed until Thursday.ADVERTISEMENT Hill will be expected to provide similar traits in Sacramento, while grooming rookie point guards De’Aaron Fox and Frank Mason III. The 31-year-old has spent nine years in the NBA with San Antonio, Indiana and Utah.He averaged a career-high 16.9 points per game last season for the Jazz, helping them make the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2010. He also averaged 4.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds. He played only 49 games in the regular season because of various injuries.After going into the draft last month with no point guards on the roster, the Kings have invested heavily in the position the past two weeks. They took Fox fifth overall and then used their second-round pick on Mason.Fox is extremely quick and a skilled ball handler who showed the ability to get to the basket in his one season at Kentucky. He averaged 16.7 points, 4.6 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game.Mason was a four-year player at Kansas and won numerous player-of-the-year awards last season, including from The Associated Press. He averaged 20.9 points and 5.2 assists per game as a senior and finished sixth all-time at Kansas in both points (1,885) and assists (576).Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LaVine scores 42, Chicago rallies late to beat Cavs ESPN first reported the agreement.Hill announced on Twitter that he was coming to Sacramento.
