IPL 2020: Such a score will be challenging on UAE pitches, said RCB Head Coach Mike Hewson
IPL 2020: Mike Hesson said bowling in the last overs in a field like Abu Dhabi would be completely different from Chinnaswamy. He said, ‘Bowling in the last overs in Abu Dhabi will be very different from Chinnaswamy. We have identified such bowlers. ‘
Mike Hesson, Director of Cricket Operations, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), has made a very important point before the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) to start in UAE. Hewson has said that the score of 150-160 on the pitches of Dubai and Abu Dhabi will be challenging. A lot of runs have been scored in the last over against this team in previous IPL seasons, but Hewson said that they have identified the bowlers who will bowl during this time.
Hessen said on RCB’s YouTube channel, “150-160 runs on some grounds will be considered good here. There will be a different atmosphere here. Chinnaswamy Maidan (Bengaluru) is a great batting and there is a small boundary line which makes a big score. He said, “Yes, the situation on some grounds will be helpful for the spinners. It depends on many things though. Compared to Abu Dhabi, the role of spinners in both the remaining grounds (Dubai and Sharjah) will be important because the ball will ‘skid’ there. We have to adapt to the conditions of each day. ‘
Hessen said that bowling in the last overs in a field like Abu Dhabi would be completely different from Chinnaswamy. He said, ‘Bowling in the last overs in Abu Dhabi will be very different from Chinnaswamy. We have identified such bowlers. The team has failed to qualify for the playoffs after playing the final in 2016 but the coach believes that this time the team is in a better position.
