Gavaskar told ‘Sports Today’, “The commentators were saying that there was no dew effect today so I think dew did not play that much role in this match (final) but I think it was there in the previous matches and Probably this needs to be looked into.”

He said, “But you can say that if the group matches were played at the same time, then why change the timing of the knockouts.”

“But once again I think the ICC Cricket Committee will have to consider it and ensure that both the teams get equal opportunity,” Gavaskar said.

Ravi Shastri, who was India’s head coach in the tournament and Bharat Arun, who was the bowling coach, talked about the effect of dew after the team’s exit from the group stage. The teams batting later won 29 out of 45 matches in the tournament. Regarding Australian opener David Warner, Gavaskar said that he will be one of the players who will be in high demand in the IPL auction.

In the last season of IPL, Sunrisers Hyderabad first removed Warner from the captaincy and then dropped him from the playing XI as well. However, Warner made a strong comeback in the T20 World Cup and played a key role in Australia’s title win and was named the player of the tournament. He scored 289 runs in seven matches.

“Definitely (he will be one of the players who will be in high demand),” Gavaskar said. Don’t forget that there will also be two new teams. Don’t forget his experience, he also has leadership abilities. This format is made for that. He is so much more energetic on the field. The two new teams or any other team will be on top of the players they are looking for as it is unlikely that Sunrisers will retain him. ,
