ICC must make sure there is level-playing field, says Gavaskar

Tuesday, 16 November 2021 | PTI | New Delhi

The advantage teams have had batting second in the just-concluded T20 World Cup is something the ICC can look into to ensure a level-playing field, Indian batting great Sunil Gavaskar said on Monday.

 In the T20 showpiece that concluded in the UAE on Sunday with Australia’s triumph over New Zealand in the title clash, teams batting second have won almost all their matches, including the semifinals and the final.

“The commentators were saying that the dew factor wasn’t there today so I don’t think it really came into play that much in this game but I think it has in the previous games and maybe that is something that needs to be looked at,” Gavaskar told Sports Today.

“But you may also say that if the group matches are played at the same time then why change for the knockouts,” said Gavaskar.
