She's a Malayalam actress but also acted(show stealer) in bunch of Tamil movies which're good. Nice Character actress[^]. Both Kollywood & Tollywood are famous for treating actresses like cr@p but fortunately few actress like her was able to make good acting. One of the underrated actresses. Before her Actress Sukumari, RIP[^](who's also Malayalam actress) did great job in past.
You Mallu guys're really lucky to have great industry(with great movies, actors, actresses, etc.,) which is superior to all other crappy Masala-woods.
Virat was 84 off 63, and then 100 off 89 or something like that. He got his last 11 runs off 22 balls to get his hundred
. . .
In the three ODIs that India batted first, they scored 67, 67 and 60 from overs 31 to 40. These have been the overs when their set batsmen have approached their hundreds. In Perth, Rohit took 24 balls from 83 at the start of the 31st over to reach his century. Similarly in Brisbane, between the 30th and the 40th overs, Rohit took 21 balls to move from 86 to 100. Virat Kohli took 15 balls to score the last 16 runs to his century between the 38th and 43rd overs in Melbourne.
Clearly that is a problem, specially when the games were mostly lost with a margin of an over or so, and where 15 runs could have made a difference.
A batsman slowing down for his 100 would be analogous to a bowler asking for 2 slips and a gully during the slog overs, because he wanted wickets above conserving runs.
That is really an interesting analysis from Maxwell, its surprising as well, in terms of player like Maxwell can thinks in that direction, I have always seen Maxwell batting in similar fashion as Sehwag.
The point that I was making, and it related more to when India were setting totals and had plenty of wickets in hand, is that the scoring rate seemed to slow as milestones got close, which can sometimes be the case, especially when teams are batting first.
I have felt this always when a player comes closer to 100 gets slowdown and sometimes ruin the momentum and then after getting 100 player gets out adding mere 10-15 runs more.
If team is chasing, then the approach which Maxwell took looks more sensible then getting personal 100 and becomes careless afterwards and then get out.
You can have all the tools in the world but if you don't genuinely believe in yourself, it's useless.
I don't remember who said this, but a commentator said once that if Tendulkar got out in the 80s, India typically would have an extra 20-25 runs in their total. This was live, during a match when he slowed down in the 90s, and a stat was brought up that showed how he had a very low percentage of wins in which he scored 100s when batting first compared to other top-5 batsmen during the era. Sadly the situation is the same today with Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
