The upcoming ODI World Cup might be hosted in India the place ODIs begin at 1.30 PM and ends round 9 PM, the prime time for tv. However, within the day-night video games, the workforce bowling second usually faces a drawback because the ball will get moist as a consequence of dew and gripping the ball turns into extraordinarily troublesome.
Rohit stated whereas the choice is within the arms of the broadcaster an early begin might be finest for the World Cup.
“I mean, it [having an early start] is a good idea because it’s a World Cup, right? You don’t want to compromise too much on the toss factor and you want to take that [advantage] completely away. I like that idea of an early start, but I don’t know if it’s possible,” Rohit stated.
“The broadcasters will decide what time the game should start [laughs]. But ideally you don’t want that sort of advantage in the game. You want to see good cricket being played without one side having the advantage of batting under lights with the dew. But those are the things that are not in your control. But I like the idea of an early start.”
India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin had lately prompt beginning World Cup video games at 11.30 am. He had additionally argued that viewership figures is not going to be hit as it’s a World Cup.
“The quality difference between the teams isn’t coming through. Dew is narrowing that gap if you happen to lose the toss,” Ashwin stated. “My suggestion – or rather my opinion – for the World Cup is to look at what venues we are playing in, and at what times. Why shouldn’t we start matches at 11.30am during the World Cup? Won’t all cricket fans prioritise the World Cup and watch matches at 11.30?”
