#2 Batting Tracks

A pitch is the heart of a cricket match

Ever since the inception of T20, curators have started to prepare pitches (for limited-overs fixtures) in such a way that it favours the batsmen over the bowlers. To entertain the fans with high scoring thrillers, most of the teams (all over the world) are preparing tracks in this manner. 

Even a tradition-loving cricket nation like England is following this norm recently. Pitches are flat in almost all of the limited-overs games played in the past two years in England. England have crossed the 400+ mark thrice in the ODIs in the last three years. Recently, they scored a mammoth 481 runs against Australia. 

It is true that the fans love high scoring games. However, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s recent display of defending low scores in the recently concluded Indian Premier League shows us that low scoring matches can also entertain the fans.
