together despite expectations that many players will be lured away by lucrative offers from richer clubs Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha son of club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha attended Monday’s game between Chelsea and Tottenham which ended in a draw meaning Leicester cannot be overtaken for the title Aiyawatt speaking on Thai television said "we are not selling anyone" File picture of Leicester City players AFP "We are not a team who produces players to be developed later by other teams" Aiyawatt said "All players want to stay and keep on fighting together to see how far they can go So selling players is not on our agenda" Star Foxes players such as midfielders Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante striker Jamie Vardy and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel are expected to attract big-money offers from rival clubs but the revenue from competing in the Champions League next season will aid Leicester’s bid to retain them Leicester was a 5000-1 outsider at the start of the English top-flight competition and Aiyawatt said when his father Vichai — head of duty free company King Power — invested in the club six years ago winning the title "was not what we dared to dream" "He was already proud of being the owner of an English Premier League team Now he has owned an English Premier League Champion team he can’t be prouder" Aiyawatt said of his father "I have to say on his behalf that he has managed the club with his heart and he just hopes to gain a reputation for the country" Aiyawatt said that when the trophy is presented to Leicester’s squad at this weekend’s home game it will be decorated with ribbons of blue and yellow; blue as Leicester’s color and yellow as the color of Thailand’s royal house He said there are plans to bring the Leicester City team out to Thailand for a visit during the offseason even though a similar visit last year resulted in some youth team players involved in a scandal which contributed to the firing of manager Nigel Pearson "They are coming to Thailand very very soon" Aiyawatt said "This is unbelievable Thai people should be given a lot of credit as all players acknowledge how much support they have been given" What are we going to do about Virat Kohli He dominated the recently-concluded World T20 to such an extent that he was unanimously named Player of the Tournament for amassing 273 runs at an average of 1365 and a strike rate of almost 147 He’s now taken that form straight into the IPL charging towards the top of the run-scoring list like some kind of enraged orange cap-craving mythical creature and despite Royal Challengers Bangalore having played the fewest matches so far He’s scored 381 runs from six innings at an average of 762 and a strike rate of 140 including his first ever T20 century While there are other batsmen on Kohli’s level in Test cricket he is rapidly becoming peerless in the limited over forms of the game particularly T20 David Warner may be currently just ahead of Kohli in the IPL run-scoring table but Warner’s international T20 record barely registers when compared to Kohli’s In this shortest form of the game people often express concerns about getting the balance right between bat and ball But here we have a special case – a total imbalance between Virat and ball Virat Kohli is in such good form in T20s that it’s unfair to the bowlers BCCI So how can we restore parity and give the bowlers of the IPL and indeed the rest of the cricketing world some kind of chance against The Great and Powerful Kohli As always in situations when a batsman is dominating the game thoughts turn to Sir Donald Bradman who was infamously curtailed by Douglas Jardine’s Bodyline tactics (aka Leg Theory) in the 1932/33 Ashes We’re now in a different era of course Kohli has more protection more practice and more shots at his disposal when facing short-pitched bowling than The Don ever had And of course Kohli has far more T20 experience than Bradman who notoriously never played a single IPL tournament We’re on the right path however Perhaps bowlers might be given a chance against Kohli if they were allowed to throwone ball an over at him Not every ball That would be overkill But a surprise delivery once per over with bent arm might prove to be the 2016 equivalent of the 1932 short ball Elbow Theory if you will Alternatively why not just let each team choose their opposition’s batting order Being forced to bat at eleven might not completely stop Kohli but it would certainly slow him down Plus who could resist the opportunity to see Kane Richardson and Varun Aaron opening the batting for Royal Challengers Bangalore But it’s debatable whether even Elbow Theory or batting at eleven would be sufficient to stop Kohli during a run chase Because if Kohli is an irresistible force batting first in T20s he’s an irresistible force meeting an immovable object when he bats second (This by the way is the answer to the great philosophical question of what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object Answer: it almost inevitably successfully chases down the opposition total) Kohli’s T20 international record perhaps highlights his run-chasing prowess best – he averages 40 with a strike rate of 138 batting first but 92 with a strike rate of 133 batting second Ninety-freaking-two That’s an astonishing number And that average climbs even further to a ludicrous 123 at a strike rate of 131 when it comes to successful run chases Which let’s face it most of them are Now come on This is silly stuff What chance do bowlers have against that kind of behaviour Fortunately there’s an easy solution that would give bowlers some hope against a chasing Virat Kohli Simply don’t let him know what the target is If he doesn’t know what the target is then he’s effectively back to batting in the style of a first innings Which is still extremely good But it’s not unfairly good Oh sure There’d have to be some changes to how the scoreboards are programmed if we’re going to prevent Kohli from seeing his opponent’s score while he’s on the field Perhaps he might even have to wear some kind of blinkers or blindfold to prevent him from tallying their runs in his head In which case the crowds would also have to be instructed to be as quiet as possible so as to not give away any clues to possible boundaries or wickets And his teammates would have to give him a heads up if the ball came his way in the field And of course those same teammates would also have to promise not to tell him the target between innings or during the run chase Yes it’s a lot of hassle to make all these changes just to keep the opposition score hidden from Kohli But isn’t it worth it to make the game just that little bit fairer After all what’s the alternative Allow Kohli to continue unimpeded playing by the same rules as everybody else Rules that we’ve already seen just permit him to dominate this form of the game Are we supposed to merely sit back and enjoy his astonishing strokeplay and glowering intensity as he crushes whichever bowling attack is sent to deal with him next Is that your idea of fun Actually yeah It’s not bad is it Forget I said anything Continue as you were
