England lost their 2nd T20 match vs India, now rest of the matches gets a reschedule plan. Fans Worried.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in consultation with the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) has decided to conduct the final three T20Is against England at the Narendra Modi Stadium behind closed doors.
The decision was arrived at following detailed discussions with the state and local health authorities.
Whats the Risk in India Vs England Series?
The BCCI will continue to comply with all the regulations put in place to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus and will always put the health and safety of its fans and stakeholders at the top.
Those who have purchased tickets for any or all three T20Is will be refunded and the process for the same will be announced in due course.
While England started the five-match T20I series with a win, India bounced back well and leveled the series in the second. However, England captain Eoin Morga has said that Team India have exposed their “weakness” in handling slow conditions but he also beleived playing there will only prepare them for the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup which will take place in India after this year.
“I suppose the difference was in the wicket we played and how we adapted. It was different wicket from the one we batted in the first game. The pitch was slow and low and one thing that does is expose our weakness on these surfaces a little bit,” said Eoin Morgan at the post-match virtual media interaction as well.
“We don’t play a lot on slow, low wickets and the more that we can do that, the better. You only become better in these conditions by playing in them and making mistakes,” he further added.
“I thought the other night, the pitch really suited us because it had more pace in it – similar to a wicket at home, a Cardiff wicket or somewhere like that, that was a little bit uneven and maybe stood up a little bit. But this took us out of our comfort zone and really was a typical Indian wicket that we would play on in an IPL game. Again, your accuracy has to be on,” Eoin Morgan concluded.
