England bowled straighter to VijayM Vijay had gotten out a couple of times edging to fast bowlers in the Test series against New Zealand. Last month, his trigger movement was a slight forward press and that, perhaps, led him to play inside the line. In Rajkot, Vijay started moving back and across in the trigger movement, for that meant his head getting on top of off stump and that helped him leave balls outside off. In Visakhapatnam, the England bowlers, especially James Anderson bowled a lot straighter. This shows the constant evolution of tactics in international cricket.Pujara against the short ballsChange in tactics. Ben Stokes and Alastair Cook have abandoned the outside-off line for Cheteshwar Pujara and decided to give the bouncer-trap a go. Theres a short leg, a leg gully and two fielders in the deep, square on the leg side. Pujara has handled the threat quite well in Visakhapatnam as compared to his struggles against the bouncers in Rajkot. In the previous Test, he was planting his front foot in a long and across stride, which led to the upper body getting blocked. Here, he has kept a very short forward stride and also marginally straighter, which has allowed him to handle the short balls better.Kohli and the outside-off-stump lineIf anyone has an elephants memory in international cricket, it has to be the bowlers clan. Two years ago, Virat Kohli had his share of problems against the outside-off line in England and that has prompted the same line of attack in Visakhapatnam too. In the first session, there was not a single ball the England fast bowlers bowled within the stumps. England either tried bouncers or kept the ball fairly outside off throughout. Such tactics dont test a batsmans technique, they test another important facet of batting in Tests - patience. Kohli has been up to the challenge thus far. The first shooter on the first dayKohli went back to a ball, from Moeen Ali in the 50th over, that was reasonably short but the ball kept really low. Kohli did well to get bat on ball and therefore no damage was done as the ball took the toe of the bat and went to the fine-leg boundary for four. But that was the first sign of uneven bounce on this surface. It will be interesting to observe if and when the balls start bouncing alarmingly too.Right hand dominatingThe coaching manual says that batting is all about the top hand. Its the top hand that dominates and the bottom hand that guides, especially for shots off the front foot through the off side. Both Pujara and Kohli have used the bottom hand to good effect, even to the front-foot shots through the covers and mid-off. Why and how? Well, the slower nature of the pitches in the subcontinent dictates that batsmen are forced to generate their own pace, and to do that its imperative to use the bottom hand more often. The flip side of allowing the bottom hand to dominate is that the ball goes in the air from time to time and to counter it, both these batsmen have stayed low and transferred the weight at the right time.The real Indian pitchThis is a proper Indian pitch with smaller blocks running through the 22 yards. Theres only a sprinkling of dry-cut grass, which is unlikely to keep the track together. On such pitches, the cracks dont open up but crumble as the match progresses. Also, the footmarks are likely to make their appearance felt early in the game. Michael Lang Trikot .

Manager Terry Francona said Swisher received the injection after an MRI taken Sunday revealed no structural damage. Francona said Swisher will be "down for a couple of days" and is not likely to play during the Indians three-game series against Kansas City. The Indians are off Thursday and Swisher could return for Fridays series opener against Minnesota. Francona said its possible Swisher could still end up on the disabled list, but "thats not our first choice." "The hope is that with maintenance moving forward we can kind of stay ahead of it," Francona said. Swishers shoulder has been bothering him for some time, and Francona said the switch-hitter made it worse with "big swings" during a weekend series against Washington. Swisher signed a four-year, $56 million contract with Cleveland in December. He recently went through an 0-for-27 slump and has just six hits in his last 55 at-bats. His average has dropped to .237. Francona doesnt know if Swishers injury affected his swing. "I dont think it helped it," he said. "Its hard to tell. Guys get banged up so much." With Swisher sidelined, Mark Reynolds moved from third base and started at first for Mondays series opener with the Royals.dddddddddddd John McDonald made his second straight start at third. Also, Indians closer Chris Perez will make a second rehab appearance on Tuesday before the Indians consider activating him from the disabled list. Perez has been sidelined with a strained right shoulder. Perez will pitch an inning for Double-A Akron, and as long as there are no setbacks, the two-time All-Star will be activated Friday. Perez allowed two hits and struck out one during an inning for Lake County (A) on Sunday. He wasnt happy with his command, but said he felt good after playing catch Monday. "Its getting better every day," he said. "I wish I could have come back sooner, but Ill take it." While he was out, Perez was charged with misdemeanour drug abuse after a package of marijuana was mailed to his home in suburban Rocky River. Perez has had a rocky relationship with Indians fans, but said hes not concerned about how hell be received when he returns to the mound. Francona believes Indians fans only want to see Perez close games. "I think if he gets em out, theyll cheer," he said. "Thats normally the way it is for a closer. I think baseball fans, and people in general, dont mind forgiving. If you treat people right, I think theyll treat you right back. With us, hes been really good and really mature about it and were kind of looking forward to moving on."
