We are ready to counter dew factor: Curator
The team bowling second in the inaugural T20 International between India and South Africa will have their task cut out as dew can play a major factor but HPCA curator S Chouhan said that his team is ready with arrangements to counter the effect.
Chief curator S Chouhan said that the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association is trying to counter the dew factor as there will be four super <g data-gr-id="15">soppers</g> kept ready for the match. The rope swipe arrangement has also been kept ready as it may come into effect as the clock touches around 9 pm.
About the behaviour of the pitch in this tie, Chouhan said,”It shall be a fast wicket with even bounce to help batsman and spinners too. The track is not expected to change its behaviour during the <g data-gr-id="16">entore</g> duration of 40 overs. The fast outfield will earn batsmen value for their shots.”
The ground has a lush green 75-yard boundary on all sides. Both the captains have already indicated to bat first on this high altitude ground.
