T20 World Cup: Advantage India, How only day matches can help Indian Cricket Team?

Huge advantage for Indian Cricket Team, only day matches for Team India in ICC T20 World Cup

The ICC T20 World Cup is less than a month away. While the teams continue their preparation for the mega tournament, the scheduling for the matches is a bit weird. While the other teams play matches at regular timings based on USA audience, that is not the case for the Indian Cricket Team.

All the matches for Team India are slotted in the day. This has been mainly done catering to the Indian audience. The ICC knows very well about the audience and viewership from India. Therefore in a bid to not let go of a huge viewership, all the India matches are set for 8 PM IST.

This means all the matches for India will be held in the day time. Now in general, T20 matches are held in the evening, essentially making it a night game. But with India playing all the games in the day, changes the dynamics of the tournament.

Huge Advantage for Spinners?

The pitches in both USA and the Caribbeans are on the slower side. It is slated that the pitch will offer equal assistance to batters and bowlers, but the hint of the unknown and the uncertainty prevails. However, in general it will be the spinners who are slated to benefit the most from the pitches.

Since India’s matches will be in the day, it is a huge advantage for the spinners. No matches in the evenings, negates the dew factor in the game. Adding more advantage are the sunny conditions of the day. With the T20 World Cup happening in summer in the Norther Hemisphere, it will be bright and sunny in USA and in West Indies.

Dusty tracks will greatly assist the spinners, and Team India has some huge talents in their mixes. Alongside the usual suspects of Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav, the addition of Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel adds a huge dynamics to the team.
