Day-night ODIs in India start at 1.30 pm and end around 9 pm, which is prime time on television, thereby increasing viewership for the BCCI and the broadcasters. However, Rohit said that this gives the chasing team a significant advantage when there is dew, as they bowl in dry conditions in the afternoon and when the dew wets the ball in the evening, it becomes easier to score. .
“Indeed [having an early start] It’s a good idea because it’s the World Cup, isn’t it?’ [advantage] Completely away. I like this idea of early start, but I don’t know if it is feasible.
“The broadcasters will decide what time the game should start [laughs], But ideally you don’t want that kind of advantage in the game. You want to see good cricket being played without the advantage of batting under lights with dew. But these are the things which are not in your control. But I like the idea of starting early.”
“The quality difference is not coming between the teams,” Ashwin said. “If you lose the toss then the dew is reducing that difference. My suggestion – or rather my opinion – for the World Cup is to look at the venues and what time we are playing. Why don’t we start the matches should do?” 11.30 am during the World Cup? Wouldn’t all cricket fans give priority to the World Cup and watch the matches at 11.30?”
Latham said, “I haven’t thought too much about match time changes, but I think around the world you see different conditions at night, where the ball gets dew or the field leaves the dew.” ” “And sometimes it can be difficult to grip the ball and it becomes a bit slippery, but that is something we are exposed to in international cricket where you have to be flexible bowling with a wet ball or in those conditions. field. You’ve got to ride with the conditions you’re facing and adapt to the conditions as best as possible.”
