New from KKR: Sign language to fox opponents
Posted on: 23-04-2009 , 04:: | DY365 Bureau

a shocking batting collapse in the opening match, and finally a fictitious blog on the dressing room atmosphere. Things haven’t being going so well for the Kolkata Knight Riders over the past few weeks, but that hasn’t stopped coach John Buchanan from keeping the innovations coming.

“He keeps trying to re-invent the wheel,” Shane Warne had remarked about Buchanan earlier this week.

Kolkata have now devised a new sign language to communicate with each other on the field, in order to negate the language problem that players of different backgrounds have to contend with in the IPL, and at the same time, to keep the opponents guessing about their strategies.

An adaptation from baseball, the Knight Riders team have learnt these new signs to get their field-placings right, and to guide the bowlers about what line and length to bowl against particular batsmen. According to sources, the elevation of wicketkeeper Brendon McCullum to captaincy is also seen as an extension of the baseball logic, where the catcher behind the plate discusses the next throw with the pitcher using sign language.
