India’s head coach Rahul Dravid has expressed concern about the World Cup becoming too favorable to batsmen. He suggested that teams might as well play two T20 matches instead. The tournament has seen high-scoring matches, with South Africa posting a record-breaking total of 428 runs. However, India’s wins against Australia and Pakistan came in low-scoring matches, and the ICC rated the pitches for these matches as only “average.” Dravid emphasized the importance of variety in the tournament, including pitches that favor bowlers, and not just focusing on big scores. He also raised concerns about low spectator turnout in matches that do not involve India, suggesting that the 50-over format may be losing its significance compared to T20 cricket. Looking ahead to India’s upcoming match against New Zealand, Dravid acknowledged the strength of the opposition and emphasized the need for India to bring their best performance. He also mentioned that India will miss the presence of all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who is sidelined due to an ankle twist. Pandya’s absence may affect the team’s balance.
