Warm-up games, according to Ravi Shastri, will help the team find the ideal line-up for the main event.


Shastri stated that the dew factor would be an important consideration in the selection of the team.

It will be decided whether or not to hire an additional spinner or seamer once the current situation has been evaluated.

On the 24th of October, India will open its World Cup T20 campaign against Pakistan.

When it comes to selecting an extra seamer or spinner for India’s upcoming ICC T20 World Cup campaign, head coach Ravi Shastri said Monday that the dew factor will be the deciding factor. India’s campaign against Pakistan begins on October 24.

When it comes to the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup campaign, which begins on October 24 against Pakistan, India head coach Ravi Shastri said on Monday that the dew factor will determine whether or not the team plays an extra seamer or spinner. While Shastri is in his final assignment with the Indian team, he also made it clear that the primary goal of the two warm-up games against England (tonight) and Australia (on October 20) is to understand how the players are placed in terms of rhythm and form.

Our first goal is to determine how much dew is present and then decide whether to bat or bowl first. The extra spinner or seamer helps us decide,” Shastri told former India stumper, Deep Dasgupta, during an interaction for official broadcasters ‘Star Sports.’.

India will play all of its games in the evening when the presence of dew is most likely to affect the outcome. Spinners have a harder time gripping the ball when there is a lot of dew on the ground, so batsmen have an advantage in stroke play.

The majority of the Indian players are regulars for their respective franchises, according to Shastri, who believes the IPL has served as an ideal practice ground.

Because they have been participating in the Indian Premier League for the past two months, the boys shouldn’t require too much preparation. Getting together and adapting as a group is more important. Start moving to the beat and putting some energy into it.”

When asked what he hopes to gain from the warm-up games, Shastri replied, “Everyone can bat and bowl” (in this game). As a result, we’ll have a better idea of who’s doing what.

“Not at all,” says the speaker (regarding any locked strategy). We’ll wait and see how things go before making any decisions.
