T20 WC: Watch out because…Rahul Dravid warns of New York pitch, important advice for players

Team India is gearing up for the T20 World Cup 2024 battle. India played a warm-up match against Bangladesh on Saturday and won by 60 runs. India scored 182/2 and bowled out Bangladesh for 122 runs at the Nassau Stadium in New York. The Indian team has to play the first three matches of the group stage at this ground. India will begin their campaign against Ireland on June 5 and then take on arch-rivals Pakistan on June 9. India head coach Rahul Dravid is a bit worried about the playing conditions at the newly built stadium in New York. He advised the players to be careful.

After the warm-up match between India and Bangladesh, coach Dravid while assessing the conditions said that the ground was a little soft and the pitch a little spongy. Let us tell you that wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant scored a stormy half-century in the warm-up match. He scored 53 off 32 balls and retired. Hardik Pandya contributed 40 runs off 23 balls. Suryakumar Yadav scored 31 runs and captain Rohit Sharma scored 23 runs. For India, Arshdeep Singh and Shivam Dubey took two wickets each. Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik, Mohammad Siraj and Axar Patel got one wicket each.

“The ground is a bit soft and the players can feel the impact on the hamstrings and calves,” Dravid said in a video shared by the BCCI on Sunday. So, we have to work in this direction and the players have to take care of themselves, because it feels a little heavy at the bottom.” Very well put together. I think we managed very well. We batted well. We scored better than we thought here. Then we bowled very well.
