Virat Kohlis rapid and sustained rise over the last few years has brought inevitable comparisons with Sachin Tendulkar. 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. Mookie Betts Jersey .

Tony Conigliaro Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Georgia defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter was arrested early Sunday morning on misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and underage alcohol possession, his second alcohol-related arrest this year.Ledbetter, 18, was released from jail Sunday morning on a $2,000 bond -- $1,500 for the DUI charge and $500 for the underage possession charge -- following his booking by Athens-Clarke County police.First I want to apologize to my family, my teammates and coaches, the University and the Bulldog Nation, said Ledbetter in a statement released Monday. I have a problem and have received an incredible amount of support and treatment through the Athletic Department for the problem. For that I am thankful. I ask for everyones support as I continue to receive additional treatment for this disease and work toward a healthy life.A sophomore, Ledbetter was initially suspended for Georgias season opener against North Carolina after he was arrested in March on misdemeanor alcohol charges, but coach Kirby Smart has been vague about whether the suspension would stand after those charges were dropped.At the time, Smart said Ledbetter made a huge mistake and embarrassed himself, his family and his team following the March incident.On Monday the school stated that Ledbetter will be disciplined and will also be enrolled in an intensified education, counseling, and medical assistance program.According to the Georgia Athletic Associations drug and alcohol policy, Ledbetter could miss two games for the alleged DUI.Certainly we are disappointed and recognizze he has a serious problem, Smart said in a statement released Monday.dddddddddddd. We have provided help for him previously and we are committed to providing whatever assistance is necessary for Jonathan that will contribute to immediate improvement but also ensure that his long-term well-being is secure.Ledbetter played in seven games as a backup in 2015.?He was expected to compete for playing time and a starting spot on the defensive line this season.Ledbetters arrest is the eighth since Smart was hired. Ledbetter, Chad Clay and Chauncey Rivers have accounted for six of the arrests under Smart. Clay and Rivers were both dismissed after Smart gave them another chance and they got into trouble again.Smart addressed the recent arrests at the SEC media days on Tuesday, saying, If I said it wasnt concerning that would be a bigger issue. Its obviously concerning, but I also know what its like to be a student-athlete and to be a student-athlete at the University of Georgia and to deal with these issues.We have got to do a better job educating our players and making sure we get the right players to make the right decisions. Ultimately, a couple of these are just dumb, bonehead decisions. Theyre not disease or issue, theyre just dumb decisions and we cant have kids make those because they reflect the entire program.Information from ESPN senior writer Mark Schlabach and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
