    Pitches from the 1990s in 2018 Asia Cup!

    Seriously, what kind of dead slow wickets are these?

    Dubai is notorious for such slow tracks, where Shafiq, Younis Khan and Azhar Ali have made their fortunes. Where even Starc and Mitchell Johnson got neutralized.


    But.. for an LOI tournament like Asia Cup, they really should have prepared a better track.

    Ball's dying a death before reaching the bat. Nobody can hit.

    Dying a slow death, rather.

    Great wickets giving bowlers and batsmen a fair crack.

    Need much more of these.

    Not really.

    Boring matches. It's a graveyard for the fast bowlers.

    Batsmen can't time as well. They can't play their strokes. What are you looking at?

    Limited overs cricket is meant to be exciting, high pace.

    Not perfect, but much better than pitches we see nowadays in England, Australia, where 320 is a par score. If only these pitches were a little faster (while still spinning) they would be perfect.


    Does cricket survive off of it's money or does it survive for it's money?

    I find these matches much more entertaining, what's the point of 350 vs 250 games where the first team smashes helpless bowlers, and the second team crumbles under pressure.

    Can understand pitches being slow, how can the outfield be so sluggish. That alone takes out 10-15 runs.

    Dhawan, Rahul and Pandya would not be complaining though, all they have seen is swinging deliveries and mostly 20s and 30s for two months lol
