Kagiso Rabada expecting ‘more competitive scores’ as T20 WC gears up to shift base to solely West Indies

Kagiso Rabada expecting ‘more competitive scores’ as T20 WC gears up to shift base to solely West Indies

Rabada advocated about having more sporting wickets which offers something to both bowlers and batters.

South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada anticipates that the Super Eight stage of the T20 World Cup will feature more competitive scores, as the pitches in the West Indies will be more consistent in nature than the drop-in decks used in the US leg of the tournament.

The pitch in New York caused controversy due to its unpredictable bounce, making it difficult for batters to score runs. Now, the Super Eight matches will now take place only in Caribbean venues, leading to batters breathing a sigh of relief.

Kagiso Rabada expecting more competitive scores

I do expect that conditions are going to level up because you had the drop-in pitches in the USA. You never really know how they’re going to play,Rabada said on the eve of South Africa’s final Group D match against Nepal.

Now, you’ve actually got squares that have been there for years, here in these venues. And you’ll probably see more competitive scores,” he added.

However, Rabada made it clear that he does not want flat surfaces where the batters score runs at will. Instead, Rabada called for more sporting pitches which will offer something to both bowlers and batters.

You want to get a game and find pitches where you have enough in it for the bowlers and enough in it for the batters. That’s essentially what a cricket game is. Otherwise, you might as well just call it batting or you might as well call it bowling,” he explained.
