Kohli also said on Saturday that Dhoni would also make it easier for him to take a call as far as the Decision Review System (DRS) is concerned. (Virat Kohli’s Team India will rewrite history, says MS Dhoni)”He is one voice if he tells me it’s outside the line or if it’s missing the stumps the decision stands there it’s not left up to doubt or any further debate from there on. He is someone who has always been very smart in decision making as far as appeals are concerned as well,” said Kohli in the pre-match press conference in Pune.

(Also Read: Kohli and Tendulkar, two champion batsmen: One a fitness freak, the other a foodie)”Many people have had different styles of captaincy and I think he has been so successful because he has been able to find the right balance in being offensive with his plans as well as understanding when the game is dominated by the opposition and how to slow things down. I think that has been his biggest strength and that is something that I would like to understand.”READY TO CAPTAIN INDIAI am ready, not thinking about the burden at all. Leading India gives me more opportunities to take Indian Cricket forward: @imVkohli pic.twitter.com/2HGlm5GlHa BCCI (@BCCI) January 14, 2017″I’m pretty read in accepting of taking captaincy in all three formats. I feel really honoured, I don’t feel any stress and I’m not thinking about the burden at all. It just gives me more opportunities to take Indian cricket forward which I think is the best thing to happen to anyone,” Kohli concluded.last_img read more

What Would a Fantasy Big 12 League Look Like After Week 1?

first_imgHere’s a look at the Week 1 leaders in fantasy points by position. In order to be listed under a position, you must have completed a minimum number of attempts (passes, rushes, receptions) at that position.This leads to a few quirks like Joe Mixon appearing on the WR list and not the RB list (he only carried the ball 5 times, not enough to make the RB list). Wendell Smallwood of West Virginia appears on the RB and WR list.The fantasy points are calculated using FanDuel’s scoring system. I don’t claim these to be 100 percent accurate – I gathered the numbers from the (awesome) College Football Play Index, which I trust, but I don’t include any return stats and there may be other things missed (fumbles, etc.). This is just for fun, in other words.QuarterbacksScreen Shot 2015-09-09 at 1.57.57 PMRunning backsScreen Shot 2015-09-09 at 1.58.10 PMWide ReceiversScreen Shot 2015-09-09 at 1.58.34 PMIf you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
