New Delhi: With Al Nada poised to play a major role in the future Audi World Cup In India, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has formulated a ‘protocol’ for umpires across venues to ensure the impact of the draw is minimized to some extent.
Most stadiums are expected to be affected by heavy dew during the period from October to November. The T20 World Cup in the UAE in 2021 was also severely affected by dew and the team’s second-place finish had a huge advantage. Indian conditions are usually more conducive to spin, but the ICC has asked the spinners to leave as much grass as possible on the pitches to ensure the seamers stay in the game. This means that teams will be keen to have more players in the starting lineup.
“Places in the northern, western and eastern states of India are likely to see heavy dew at this time of the year. Matches in Chennai and perhaps Bengaluru are likely to see a fair amount of rain. The main idea is to keep the draw out of the equation as much as possible. Dew affects “The results are interesting,” a source told TOI. .
To maintain balance between bat and ball, it has been suggested that courts should have the maximum possible boundary size. It is learned that venues have been told to maintain boundary sizes of around 70 metres.
“The minimum boundary size for international matches is 65 metres and the maximum is 85 metres. The boundary size for old centers is around 70-75 metres. It has been suggested to keep the boundaries more than 70 metres. The Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) has also directed “The trustees to use a wetting agent have been standardized by the board and ICC. Most of the places these days are using similar wetting agents. But now the board has directed every center not to use any other wetting agent other than what has been used,” the sources said.
But the Indian team prefers to play on choppy pitches against Australia and England. While the match against Australia in Chennai on October 8 is unlikely to be affected by the dew, the match against England in Lucknow on October 29 will pose a challenge for curators.
Chief selector Ajit Agarkar, while announcing the Asia squad a month ago, acknowledged the dew factor. India have two finger spinners in Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel while Kuldeep Yadav He is the only wrist spinner on the team. “The dew will play a role. We have seen that many times. But it is more about the balance of the team. Sometimes it is a little easier for the pacers to catch the ball than the spinners. A good bowler will find a way to bowl in different conditions,” Agarkar said.
India decided to go with an additional tailor Shardul Thakur His hitting abilities are at the bottom of the order. But keeping the dew factor in mind, India wouldn’t mind more seam options.
