NZ ODI Series - Revisiting the Rotation Rate

New Zealand won the fourth ODI convincingly as the Indians were not able to set a target high enough. Let us look at the Rotation Rate (a concept that I explained long ago) for the series.

The results are clear enough. Why Williamson and Taylor are the best players from New Zealand team while Dhoni and Kohli are the best from India. Guptill, Rohit Sharma, Ryder, Dhawan, Rahane are clearly struggling (though the first two have scored runs) - obviously reasons why they are not good enough.

It is time the Indian batsmen started looking at rotation once again - this problem was an old one when sub-contintental teams used to focus on boundaries alone and not rotating the strike. In recent times, one thought that teams had started learning it but clearly the Indian team is way behind (with Ryder and Guptill as well).
