Srinagar: Team India head coach, Rahul Dravid has said that the dew factor will be making this World Cup 2023 interesting.
ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 starts on Thursday in 10 cities of India. Around 48 matches would be day and night affairs.
“India is a big country and there are many venues so it’s hard to say it (dew) is going to be the same everywhere,” Dravid was quoted as saying.
“Each venue and each day will be different. It’s one of the hardest things to predict with dew,” he said.
Dew mainly affects bowlers and fielders as day-night matches progress, with most captains opting to bowl first after winning the toss as a result.
“As the tournament goes on, at some venues it will be a factor and at some it may not. It’s going to make it more interesting,” the 50-year-old said.
India, the top-ranked team across all formats, begin their World Cup campaign against Australia on October 8 followed by their hotly anticipated clash against Pakistan.
