Dubai: Australia’s limited-overs captain and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) opener Aaron Finch has said that in the first week of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) it has been shown that the dew will play an important role in the tournament and the pitches slow down This will affect the match even more. It is getting easier to bat on the pitch in the second half and bowlers are facing difficulties due to falling dew.
Finch said, ‘Dew will play a big role in the tournament. In the last three matches, the match in Sharjah and during our match here, more dew than expected ‘.
He said, ‘I think as the tournament progresses more matches will be played on the same wicket, the wickets will slow down and the dew will affect the match more’.
The Australian batsman said, ‘You have to do your best though. You can’t take it as an excuse. If you have to bat first on a slow wicket, then you have to adjust to it and give yourself a chance to succeed in every situation.
The possibility of a decrease in the scores of the teams is also being expressed as the tournament progresses but Finch said that it is too early to predict anything about this. He said, ‘It is difficult to say anything about this. There have been few matches so far and they (Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah) are completely different wickets. It is related to reconciliation as soon as possible ‘.
Asked about dealing with slow and dry pitches, Finch said, “It will depend on match by match.” When the dew hits, it will turn the wicket into a good wicket. You can’t just play with a certain style.
Finch said, ‘During the first match (Delhi Capitals vs Kings XI Punjab) here the ball was bouncing and seaming. You have to show flexibility in every match.
