The English pacers might get early morning dew advantage

Will the Change in Match Timing help England? While ECB’s change of time has been done to accommodate viewers from the subcontinent, it could also provide the hosts with a big advantage.

Interestingly, a Test day in England used to start at 11 AM so as to provide a level playing field for both batters and bowlers.

The early morning dew is a significant factor in England, and games starting early usually provided the bowlers with an advantage that many found undue.

Hence, the preponement of day’s play by 30 minutes will certainly help the bowlers, and the toss will be more crucial than ever before.
