Ben Duckett must adjust his technique quickly after three very similar dismissals to off-spin in his short Test career, says Michael Atherton. Montae Nicholson Jersey . The left-hander was bowled by Ravichandran Ashwin for just five as England slumped to 103-5 on day two of the second Test, still 352 runs shy of Indias first innings total.It is the second time in as many innings that Ashwin has removed the England No 4 while he was also bowled twice by teenage off-spinner Mehedi Hasan during the tour of Bangladesh, the first of which showed remarkable parallels to his latest wicket. It is amazing how quickly the game at the highest level presents challenges, Atherton told Sky Sports. In his very first innings in Chittagong in Test cricket, he showed the off-spinner his stumps and paid the price, and he has done that twice here now. Duckett had similar problems against Mehedi Hasan in Bangladesh A fundamental principal of batting is that if you keep getting out in similar ways then you have to do something about it.Hes got to look at that defensive technique to the off-spinner, hes got to keep his pad more in the line of the ball but play with his bat out in front of it so hes taking the lbw out of the equation.At the moment he is showing too much of his stumps and with two quality off-spinners, Ashwin - the No 1 bowler in the world - and Jayant Yadav, thats going to be a problem. Paul Farbrace admits that Ben Duckett must improve his batting technique to succeed in Test cricket Joe Root was Englands top performer with the bat, making 53, but the manner of his dismissal invited criticism as he was caught by the man halfway back to the boundary at mid off, attempting to go over the top.However, Atherton believes Root was right to be positive and look to force the field back.He got it wrong but I dont think you can be overly critical of what he tried to do because if you just sit there and allow Inidas spinners to swarm all over you, youre not doing anything, explained the former England captain.Youre not being proactive, youre not ticking the scoreboard over. What he is looking to do is get a boundary, get that man pushed back and then have the ability to turn over the strike. In a rare return to the nets, David Gower has some batting tips for struggling fellow left-hander Ben Duckett What weve always said is that two things are key: one your defence early on but secondly, you need to have boundary options to push the field back so you can then rotate the strike. He got the execution of the shot wrong but I wouldnt necessarily be critical of him trying to play it.The risk did not pay off, though, and Atherton admitted England have it all to do if they are to salvage something from the Test match.Ten out of the last 14 Tests, India have batted first and when they have batted first they have really swarmed all over their opponents, getting big first innings runs and unleashing the spinners, he said.Only once in that time have the opposition got over 300. I dont like to say England are doomed but theyve got a very difficult game ahead of them from here on in.

Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Hi Kerry, I enjoy reading your column - hope you keep it up! In the final seconds of the third period of the Winnipeg/Montreal game, Brendan Gallagher looked like he was attempting to get back on-side. However, as he was starting to skate back, Al Montoya, Zach Bogosian and Jacob Trouba blatantly interfered with his progress. If the referee wasnt around, I would have thought that he just missed it. However, this all enfolded in front of a referee. It seemed the ref either purposely wanted the game to be over, sadistically wanted Gallagher to get roughed up, or favoured the Jets to win! Please explain why it wasnt a penalty and what (if any) you would have done differently. Regards, Lee Hi Lee: I can assure you that none of the three assertions you made were even remotely part of the referees mindset or affected his ultimate decision not to assess a penalty against the Jets. Instead, Brendan Gallagher engaged in a losing battle of will with the referee when he attempted to draw a penalty by embellishing the contact with Zach Bogosian (twice) and Al Montoya. Once a referee suspects a player is guilty of embellishing he does not want to be fooled into calling a weak penalty as a result of any theatrical performance. The battle lines were pretty much drawn at that point when Jacob Trouba came off the Winnipeg bench on a change with Tobias Enstrom. Troubas most direct route to assume his right defense position from the Jets bench placed him on a collision course with Gallagher, who had just picked himself up off the ice after turning on Bogosians stick, reaching his hand to the rafters and doing a reverse fall onto his back! No penalty call was forthcoming at that point. I would have judged the encounters with Bogosian and Montoya no differently than the referee, based on the embellishment that was first initiated by Gallagher behind the Jets net. The next obvious question you will ask is if the referee deemed there was embellishment, then why not assess offsetting penalties? With under a minute to play and the puck dumped down the icce most referees would prefer to let the minor skirmish quickly play itself out and not affect the manpower on the ice when there was no immediate and direct bearing on the play. Chris Thompson Jersey. That changed in my judgment however, once Jacob Trouba knocked Gallagher to the ice with a slightly buried shoulder and stick placed across the body of the Canadiens pin-ball forward. With the puck in the neutral zone Trouba needed to give way to Gallagher and pass behind the Montreal player to allow him unimpeded exit from the Jets end zone no differently than forward giving way to a D-man backing up at the blue line. That contact by Trouba was deserving of an interference penalty. The previous embellishments clearly witnessed by the referee would certainly cause some doubt as to the legitimacy of any foul committed against Brendan Gallagher so the refs arm remained down. I ask you to watch the play as objectively as possible and freeze-frame the action at key moments during the battles that took place. You should see Gallaghers hands initiate contact with Bogosian behind the net and the changing body posture of both players throughout the engagement. The final shove by Bogosian should not have caused the net to be pushed in an excessively tipped forward position by Gallagher. During and immediately following each player confrontation Brendan Gallagher made direct eye contact with the referee, including verbal appeals for a penalty call. It became a failed mission. Brendan Gallagher had a much more direct route available to him to exit the Jets end zone. He chose a path that ultimately led him into contact with Al Montoya and deep within the goal crease. Following the Montoya elbow push, Gallagher threw his head back excessively and immediately looked at the referee this time and on two more subsequent occasions hoping to see a raised arm. Gallaghers unnatural fall and look back at the ref after tripping over Bogosians stick completed the trifecta! Players that embellish on a consistent basis run the risk of not receiving the benefit of the doubt when they are legitimately fouled. Brendan Gallagher is too effective and too good a player to develop that unwanted reputation from the refs.
