Dried up weather helped cricket fans to see a run-fest game in Edgbaston: ICC World Cup 2019

The field of Edgbaston is mostly bowling friendly. However, this match was completely different. As the weather was sunny, batsmen got more advantage and English captain Eoin Morgan did a pretty good job to chose bat first. The field was mostly dried up as the match progresses and batsmen of both teams ruled over the bowlers.

The turn of the pitch didn’t work for pacers either for spinners. Indian pacer Mohammed Shami was the only bowler who succeeded by taking 5 wickets but he was also expensive as he gave 69 runs in 10 overs with an economical rate of 6.90. Other Indian bowlers Y Chahal, Hardik Pandya was also very expensive.

The same scenario goes for English bowlers. Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Liam Plunkett everyone was expensive in this dry up pitch of Edgbaston.
