T20 World Cup 2024 Tickets | Dravid Highlights the Importance of Flexible Batting

I believe it’s something we’ve always been aware of, the idea of having players who can be versatile and adjust in the middle order if needed. This is something we’ve consistently aimed for whenever necessary and feasible, not just for the sake of it. In the Pakistan game, we promoted Axar in the order.

There was a specific strategy behind it. In other instances, we’ve moved Rishabh up the order. So, there’s been some strategic thinking around that, he explained. In the T20 format, especially with match-ups, ground dimensions, and conditions, you often see this flexibility more.

Every over or every 10 balls is crucial and matters more than in other formats. Most teams aim to make the best use of match-ups and resources to maximize the 120 balls as effectively as possible, he added. Commenting on the pitch in Barbados. Dravid noted that while dew might not be a factor, wind could play a role.

“The wind blows quite strongly from one side to the other. As you mentioned, the boundary sizes might be smaller on one side and larger on the other. There’s a bit of a slope. It is likely a faster outfield than what we experienced in New York. So, we will need to adjust and adapt,” he stated.

Dravid on Strategic Squad Selection and Impact of Wrist Spinners in West Indies

Discussing the use of a different combination of players in the West Indies. Where wrist spinners like Adam Zampa of Australia and England’s Rashid Khan have been successful. Dravid said the squad was selected to ensure anyone can join the team without disrupting the balance.

“A lot of thought has gone into the squad, considering all kinds of conditions. We are fortunate to have several all-rounders in the mix, allowing us to adapt. So, as you rightly pointed out, even though in New York we had eight batting options, we also had seven bowling options, covering both aspects to a large extent. Yes, wrist spinners play a significant role. We have two top-quality wrist spinners, and they will certainly make an impact in this tournament sooner rather than later,” he concluded.

Bangladesh pacer Tanzim Hasan Sakib set a remarkable record during his team’s 21-run victory over Nepal in a low-scoring ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 match. Sakib played a crucial role in Bangladesh’s win, earning the man of the match award for his outstanding bowling figures of 4-7.

Bangladesh Pacer Sets Unprecedented T20 World Cup Record

During his four-over spell, he bowled 21 dot balls, the most by any bowler in a T20 World Cup game. The previous record for the most dot balls bowled in a match was held by seven bowlers. Each with 20 dot balls, including New Zealand’s Trent Boult and South Africa’s Ottneil Baartman in the current edition.
