Virat Kohlis rapid and sustained rise over the last few years has brought inevitable comparisons with Sachin Tendulkar. Stitched MLB Jerseys China . In less than a decade since making his ODI debut, Kohli has marked himself out by acing the chasing game. He has numbers to go with it: 14 hundreds in successful chases, already level with Tendulkar. Kohli has batted in 59 successful chases, Tendulkar did so in 124.As with Tendulkar, Kohlis dismissals are greeted with gasps of resignation. When Kohli got out in Delhi and Ranchi, for 9 and 45 respectively, there was that sudden, piercing silence again, one that most Indian cricket fans who grew up in the 90s would be familiar with. The immediate throwaway line has been: its just like Tendulkar, Kohli gone, India lose. Especially in chases; in 2015, for instance, Kohli scored less than 12 in four of the five ODIs India lost chasing. Is it then a throwback to the era when Tendulkars failure would inevitably result in Indias defeat or is it just an emotional reaction?There is no doubt India win much more often when Kohli scores a fifty or more in a chase. While chasing 200 or more, India have won 23 of 32 games when Kohli has completed his half-century. When Kohli hasnt reached fifty, India have managed only 20 wins from 44 chases of over 200. In those 20 chases that were won without a big contribution from Kohli, there were 36 scores of 50 or more from other specialist batsmen. Rohit Sharma has scored seven of those.MS Dhoni, too, doesnt believe India is a one-batsman team, and isnt inclined to read too much into the numbers thrown up because the sample is not large enough for him. If you see the last one, one-and-a-half years, we havent played a lot of ODI cricket, he said after India lost to New Zealand by 19 runs in Ranchi. I can say that the stats actually dont reflect the exact scenario because also at that period I have batted at a different position and our top order was batting brilliantly.The numbers largely appear to corroborate Dhonis view. In all ODIs where India have chased since 2014, they have won five games and lost as many when Kohli has scored at least 50. He has scored two hundreds and three fifties in losing causes during this period. In the 17 games that Kohli has scored less than 50, Indias record hasnt been too bad: they have won nine wins and lost eight. In the nine wins that came without Kohli making a half-century, Shikhar Dhawan has contributed a century and four half-centuries while Rohit Sharma has struck three fifties. The rest of the batsmen have chipped in with four hundreds and three fifties. Kohli has scored 25.76% (813 out of 3156) of Indias top-order runs in successful chases in ODIs since 2014. Dhawan is second on the list with 18.25%.These numbers reveal that despite Kohlis overwhelming contribution to Indias successful chases, the team hasnt been overly dependent on him. However, the numbers dont tell you what happens when India fail despite a Kohli century or fifty. What happens after he is gone?A good example of how Kohlis dismissal exposes a middle order that isnt well versed in finishing games came in Canberra at the start of the year. Set a target of 349, Kohli and Dhawan racked up hundreds. At 277 for 1 in the 38th over, India looked like they would complete the chase fairly easily, but once Kohli departed within two overs of the dismissals of Dhawan and Dhoni, Indias middle order unravelled, with only Ravindra Jadeja getting into double digits.Similarly in the Rajkot ODI against South Africa, Kohli batted deep but his departure, with 55 required off 29 balls, snuffed out Indias chase. When the Tendulkar-falls-India-lose era ended, India had match-winners following him: Rahul Dravid, Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh. That Dhoni is not finishing matches now, and that Indias two other match-winners in recent times - Rohit and Dhawan - bat before Kohli accentuates the Kohli-falls-India-lose impression.The numbers will tell you India are not over-dependent on Kohli - at least not yet - but the impression they are coincides with their struggle to find somebody who can make his own the slot vacated by Yuvraj. Not even Suresh Raina - good as he has been - has been able to provide that presence consistently. With Dhoni moving up to No.4, suggesting the youngsters need to learn finishing innings by themselves, Indias overreliance on Kohli may be more than just a feeling. Cheap College Stitched Jerseys ., and Rudi Swiegers of Kipling, Sask., took sixth spot on Saturday in pairs at the NHK Trophy ISU Grand Prix figure skating competition. Authentic Stitched NHL Jerseys .

SAN DIEGO -- Having hit his 400th career home run an inning earlier, Mark Teixeira couldnt resist a little bat flip after he hit No. 401.Teixeira became the fifth switch-hitter with at least 400 home runs, Didi Gregorius also connected and Chad Green got his first big league victory as the New York Yankees beat the San Diego Padres 6-3 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.Teixeira struck out in his first three at-bats before hitting a high, arcing shot into the home run porch down the right-field line off Carlos Villanueva leading off the eighth for No. 400. With Brett Gardner aboard on a single with one out in the ninth, Teixeira got No. 401 when he homered to right off Kevin Quackenbush.The 400, I didnt know if it was going out, Teixeira said. I hit it so high, you never really know how the balls going to carry.No. 401 was a no-doubter, and thus the little bat flip.That one I could enjoy a little bit, he said.Both balls were thrown onto the field by fans, so Teixeira got them and gave them to his father, who was at the game.Opposing teams love the Yankees, Teixeira cracked.He joined Hall of Famers Mickey Mantle (536) and Eddie Murray (504) in the 400-homer switch-hitters club, along with Chipper Jones (468) and teammate Carlos Beltran (411) who reached the milestone this year.Its really cool. I feel connected to every one of the switch-hitters, Teixeira said. Mickey Mantle played for the Yankees. Eddie Murrays the reason Im a switch-hitter. I watched him growing up in Baltimore. I got to play with Chipper Jones for a year in Atlanta, which was an unbelievable experience, and now Im playing here with `Los and we do it in the same year. Its really cool. Ill always be able to take that with me.He had not homered since April 13 before connecting against Minnesota last Sunday, and he homered against Texas on Monday. His first multihomer game since July 31 gave him seven home runs this season.Our reports obviously kind of failed us a little bit today because Teixeira got us on two breaking balls, a pitch he hasnt hit very well this year, Padres manager Andy Green said. The one I thought Villa threw was a very good pitch.The Padres were denied their first sweep of the season and what would have been their first sweep of the Yankees.

I always thought I could get out big league hitters, but its nice to have the reassurance. Its always nice to get the first one.Greens only big mistake was Yangervis Solartes leadoff homer in the second. Solarte tied his career high with four hits, finishing a triple shy of the cycle.Ive definitely been battling through some things, but just trying to go out there every day and play hard and give it my best, Solarte said.
