Default Running Problem The Cause of Defeats!

Most of our defeats have a connection with poor running by the batsman in taking 1s, 2s, 3s. Have we ever been satisfied with our batsman strike rotation? the number of matches I watched, most of us fans kept on complaining about the strike rotation.

So what exactly is the problem? do the boys know how to run? literally run? or are they too lazy to run?. why is it only hard to rotate strike? barring Pakistan, most other nations find it easy to rotate strike.. but why not us?

is there something special that is needed to be able to rotate strike? perhaps failure to find gaps? perhaps lack of ideas? or is down to merely class of our batsman? our openers struggle to bat with 100+ strike rate in PP... most of the time they hover around 65-70..in PP that is a crime in modern time... why is that?

Why are we so bad? can any coach in the world teach how to rotate strike?

Also, if you watched BPL - There were around 50+ runs outs..

This is a BIG problem starting from domestic cricket it seems..

Watch AbDV and Kohli bat together.

There's a perfect example of excellent running between the wickets.

It's all about fitness, keeping your body in top shape.

Big issue which needs to be resolved by head and batting coach on an urgent basis. Three things holding us back imo

1) Like aklemalp mentioned-the fitness. Guys like Kayes, Tamim get cramps if they have to run too much. The athleticism is not there at all.

2) Our guys havent mastered the art of placement. They hit the ball hard into the fielders hands, and not in the gaps.

3) Finally the fear factor is there. Too scared to run out of the blocks. AB etc take the first run very quickly, put the pressure on the fielder.

Overall the communication is also very poor, no understanding between batsmen. No plan even. Batsmen seem to be content to be blocking even in T20 games.

New batsmen need to leave a few, block a few to get their eyes in. I remember Steve Tikolo of Kenya used to dab into gaps take singles to get his eye in. His policy was not to waste a delivery, even if he was to get set he would do so by running. 15 years later, not one of our batsmen think like him.

Haturusingha is getting a lot of stick for selection. I think this is an even bigger problem than selection. And sth for which a lot of criticism is due.
