In one of his videos shared on YouTube, Ravichandran Ashwin gave the example of the first ODI match played between India and Sri Lanka in Guwahati.
Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin feels that day-night matches should be started early in India to reduce the effect of dew. Ravichandran Ashwin wants that the ODI World Cup matches to be played in India in October-November this year should start at 11.30 am. Usually, day-night matches in India start two hours earlier i.e. at 1:30 pm.
Ashwin gave the example of the first One Day International played between India and Sri Lanka in Guwahati on his YouTube channel. Ashneen said that teams chasing the target get an unfair advantage of dew. In that match, India scored 373 runs batting first but had to sweat it out to win by 67 runs. Ashwin feels that the team's performance cannot be judged due to dew...
Ashwin said, 'After losing the toss, the dew is reducing that margin (of victory). My suggestion or to say that I believe that the timing of the start of matches in India should be considered for the ODI World Cup. We should start the match at 11:30 am during the World Cup.
The Indian off-spinner said, 'People can raise the issue of TV viewers and broadcasters. They will say that people will not watch the match from 11:30, but the thing to think about is why they will not watch the World Cup matches.
How can the T20 tournament be played in cold: Ashwin
Raising the question, Ashwin said, 'The T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia was also played in the cold season and the summer months were used for Australia's domestic bilateral season. This was not a correct equation. T20 is a game of pace. How can you play him in the cold? People may say that this does not happen in Australia, but we should give priority to the World Cup.
Ashwin said, 'If we start the match from 11:30 in the day, there will be no effect of dew. Why won't cricket fans give priority to the World Cup and watch the match at 11:30? Ashwin said that cricket teams around the world consider dew as one of the most important factors in the result of day-night matches in India.
Ashwin said, 'The England Cricket Board (ECB) had recently invited applications for the post of Analyst. I have come to know from some analysts I know that one of the questions asked to him was how big a factor is Shabnam in Indian conditions in white ball cricket. ECB wants to bring in the best analytical tools ahead of the 2023 World Cup. You can see that everyone in world cricket thinks how effective dew is in Indian conditions.
