Warner Predicts: No Repeat of IPL’s Massive Scores in World Cup


While the cricket fans in the IPL are watching the crazy high-scoring matches, the Australian cricket player, David Warner, has a different perspective regarding the format of the upcoming T20 World Cup. On the other hand, IPL has been all about massive scores; however, Warner thinks the World Cup will not be the ideal stage for that.

What Did David Warner Say – NO BIG Scores?

David Warner said the shift in dynamics would be obvious when the World Cup gets underway in the United States and the West Indies. During the T20 World Cup Unlike the unrelenting flood of runs that characterize the IPL, Warner looks forward to the downward trend of gigantic runs in the game.

Through his plenty of experience, Warner rightly pointed out another obstacle, namely, the presence of the turning pitches of the West Indies, which can be dangerous for batsmen used to the flat tracks. He thinks that it will be hard to deal with tricky deliveries because the weather makes them even tougher.

Will It Really Be Too Difficult to Score Massive Runs in the Upcoming World Cup?

As the cricketing world gears up for the T20 World Cup, the question looms: but, will the player be able to hit big runs? The special features of both the USA and the grounds in the West Indies may be of crucial importance. Bowlers will have the advantage through to the pitches which will make the batsmen struggle to get explosive scores in the upcoming World Cup.

However, that does not imply that the tournament’s competitiveness is not another aspect of the complexity. Teams will have to overcome quickly the changes in weather conditions and read the strategies of the opponents in order to be able to win. We will see great matches between strong teams, and the ones who show the most skill and adaptability will win.
