sweep to good effect despite those shots being risky to execute on a dual-bounced turner (Source: AP) Related News Given the circumstances it was a semi-comical moment Rangana Herath pirouetted his body and middled a reverse-sweep without even bothering to kneel down more like a reverse-hit in hockey It bisected the nonexistent gap between slip and gully the latter stationed really fine with pinpoint precision Herath proudly stood in his follow through admiring the ball reach the fence The Indian fielders peeled into bursts of laughter As the hosts were already eight wickets down they didn’t mind the frolicking of a lower-order batsman But it wasn’t the case for much of Sri Lanka’s innings It was no fun when Kusal Mendis kept sweeping nonchalantly on Saturday or when Niroshan Dickwella and Dhananjaya de Silva were canning them in the second session None of the efforts were sustained enough to pull Sri Lanka out of the deep pits but the efficiency of their sweeping alarmed the Indians to such an extent that Virat Kohli admitted that his team “were watching them in awe and tried their best but failed” It was a rare display of clinical nonstop sweeping Initially their incessant sweeping must have only encouraged Kohli as the stroke is immensely risk-fraught on a dual-bounced deck with the ball turning a yard So Dickwella’s blitz in the first innings didn’t tax him much But by Saturday evening the sweep had become something of an eye-sore for him Presuming that the batsmen’s sole intention is to banish the close-in fielders Kohli didn’t initially budge He stuck to the predominantly off-side field Then came a point when he fangled leg-side traps — at times a 7-2 leg-side field men in unorthodox positions Eventually he gave up which is uncharacteristic A small but intense passage of play demonstrated itThe moment Dickwella strode in Kohli conceived a trap From the way he batted in the first innings Kohli knew the batsman’s sweep-savvy approach He drew a leg-side ring around Dickwella He brought the mid-on up placed a square leg fine leg leg-slip short leg and midwicket He was straightaway throwing the challenge “If you’re good enough or brave enough hit them” Dickwella initially abstained from the stroke but soon he began to pull out the full repertoire of his sweeps But it was his partner Dhananjaya de Silva who initiated the mini-carnage The first ball he faced he plunged to his knees and muscled Jadeja over the midwicket’s head In Jadeja’s next over Kohli pushed the mid wicket back Jadeja darted the ball fuller into his body But Dhananjaya was nonplussed; he powered him past square leg Kohli mulled on posting another man between square-leg and midwicket He aborted it seeing little point in it Jadeja consequently shortened his length The batsman gracefully carved it behind point The next ball was leg-stump bound Dhananjay lapped it fine squeezing the gap between the keeper and leg-slip From the next over there was just short-leg and the keeper in his immediate vicinity and four scouting the leg-side boundary But Dhananjay swept again though the boundary riders ensured it didn’t cost them too many runs Now Kohli was playing the waiting game certain that one sweep too many will undo them at some point convinced that they were skating on thin ice “It happens in cricket sometimes that you play a particular shot and suddenly it becomes a productive shot in that particular innings for you This can happen for two sessions because of the momentum But it’s very difficult to keep carrying on for four sessions” Kohli explained But it looked as if they would carry on for ages like that afternoon in Galle where Dinesh Chandimal swept his way to a match-changing century For in Jadeja’s next over Dickwella reverse-swept a leg-sidish ball through point The bowler wore a benumbed expression Kohli stood confused stroking his beard Much to Kohli’s relief they perished without inflicting much damage He has to thank his bowlers for not bowling short as they are prone to react in such situations But surprisingly for the Indian skipper none of their dismissals in the second innings owed to the sweep “Not even one sweep was mistimed or misconnected As a captain you can do only so much The field was spread as well and still they were finding gaps and that’s what momentum can do” he admitted In fact only Chandimal in the first innings and Malinda Pushpakumara succumbed to sweeps Chandimal supposedly their best sweeper top-edged one to the square-leg Pushpakumara the night watchman attempted a horrendous reverse sweep to get bowled But the rest would just come in and just heave and haw and find the boundaries just like that as if they were facing club bowlers A more worrying aspect for Kohli is that more than half the boundaries — to be exact 20 off the 51 boundaries — were via either sweep or reverse sweeps And all but two of the boundaries were edgy Kohli can console himself and his bowlers that it could be a one-off but it’s a blind spot several teams touring India in the future will look to expose For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsThis is the story of a discovery I stumbled upon weeks before the General Election began on April 7 I did not write about it because in the absence of statistical evidence it seemed downright inane Wherever I stopped to speak to people the one argument invariably proffered to explain their decision to vote the BJP was: “I don’t want to waste my vote” This refrain acquired a decibel impossible to ignore as India negotiated its way through multiple rounds of voting In Varanasi for instance the owner of the cab that a friend and I had hired suspected that neither the city he lived in nor his personal life will benefit from Narendra Modi becoming the Prime Minister Pointing to the garbage heaps broken roads the polluted Ganga he said the BJP had been repeatedly winning from Varanasi yet its civic amenities were lamentable So why was he voting the BJP Prompt came the familiar reply: “I don’t want to waste my vote” To fathom his psychology and that of his ilk my friend asked “Have you placed bets on Modi winning from Varanasi” No he replied a tad bewildered “Do you believe voting is akin to opting for an investment promising high returns” The cab-owner said “No” “Then why” we persisted He laughed and said “What’s the point of voting a loser” In other words he and many others were voting the BJP because it seemed the most likely even a certain winner Election officials install an EVM Reuters In case you think the I-don’t-want-to-waste-my-vote syndrome is typically a non-metro or rural feature then you are being supercilious A friend was dismayed on having a telephonic conversation 24 hours after the BJP won a majority on its own The caller had detailed how she diligently researched the background of candidates in the fray in the East Delhi constituency Rajmohan Gandhi seemed just the person she thought ought to represent her She voted him But Gandhi was trounced It seemed to her he had betrayed her in not swimming against the Modi wave to the shore called Victory “Never again” she hollered to my friend “I am not voting the Aam Aadmi Party ever again It has been such a terrible waste of my vote” Ah this pining to belong to the camp of the victorious It would seem a person’s esteem suffers a terrible blow to vote a candidate who eventually loses an electoral contest This psychology needs to be unravelled The I-don’t-want-to-waste-my-vote syndrome tells us that today’s Indians want to win regardless of the nature of victory and the means employed to achieve it In this worldview politics has a meaning only if it leads to success a success achieved not over 10-15 years but immediately now Ideas of change or reform don’t matter nor do quests and struggles nor the past of candidates Some would call this syndrome a manifestation of anomie a term sociologist Emile Durkheim coined to explain the phenomenon of breakdown of ethical standards in a society suddenly nose-diving or zooming to the skies often economically This is why candidates who have corruption or criminal cases pending against them slip into the Lok Sabha every election All that they need is to figure out the most likely winner and switch sides Or disburse the lucre in his or her constituency and the person won’t be asked to account for the colour of money spent This is precisely why we go rah-rah over the captains of industry who bend laws and grease palms to add a few zeroes to their profits This syndrome also tells you of the dimming lure of ideologies For beyond the committed – the cadres or core voters – any ideology needs an endorsement from an army of floating voters for at least one election to establish its sway They may have hopped around earlier as well but the motivation to do so today arises not from the relevance of a favoured ideology its meaning and efficacy to build a ‘better’ society but from the perception that the party espousing it is rated to have the best chances of winning Perceptions can be manipulated particularly in this era of mass media You think I am making a snide remark against what was an arguably high-voltage BJP campaign No doubt the campaign was lavishly funded but it was also extremely well thought out Even before I embarked upon my election tours journalist-friends on their forays in the Hindi heartland called to say that believe it or not even those steadfastly opposed to Hindutva say the Jatav followers of Mayawati or Yadav voters of Mulayam Singh Yadav believe the BJP is winning It is just the ambience a necessary condition for the I-don’t-want-to-waste-my-vote camp to swell It’s true this camp has always existed You can also say that a little more than 60 per cent of India’s population did not join this camp Nevertheless the lure to rally behind the projected winner appears irresistible to those whose past loyalties have weakened because their fidelity to parties hasn’t been renewed through ideological reinvention and affirmation because the venality of leaders and their penchant to promote their family seem such a betrayal of the faith reposed in them Ideals compromised become a push-factor to migrate to the winner’s camp In the past India has romanced losers those who struggled honourably even valiantly for a vision they subscribed to The I-don’t-want-to-waste-my-vote syndrome tells you about the declining breed of those who live life in defiance in opposition A society is doomed to become static even pathological in which the space for dissent and rebellion shrinks and whose members worship the winner alone regardless of whether or not they adhere to his or her worldview Kaitha (Har): Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today lashed out at BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi
