View Full Version : The Dew Factor!

Four of our six matches in the group level are day-night encounters. We are relying heavily on our spin. However, if the so-called dew factor plays any role, it can diminish much of our bowling prowess when bowling second in day-night matches. I remember the dew factor significantly affected our bowlers during the Tri-nation tournament in early January of 2010. How is the possibility of dew in mid-February to early-March?

It is a real concern if we bowl second and dew factor in effect. In that case we are a pacer short IMHO.

Assuming Shuhash and Rubel are already in the starting XI, the dew factor will certainly necessitate the inclusion of Nazmul at the expense of Shubho. Although Shubho hasn't been convincing at all with the bat at this level, that would weaken our already questionable batting with too much dead weight for Tamim, Moyna and possibly Abir and GoBoy to carry.

Under those circumstances, this would be my line-up:

1. Tamim 2. Imrul 3. Abir 4. GoBoy 5. Moyna 6. Imroze 7. Ahammok 8. Shuhash 9. Rubel 10. Nostrilamous Rex 11. Nazmul

Regardless of the Dew Factor , BD is highly unlikely to deploy a 2+ pace battery . There will be two pacers. Therefore , the toss will play a very crucial role as well as the strike rates of our batters.

I agree with you that it may be a good idea to have Naz in place of Shuvo in day-niters, but why do you want Zunaed at #6? Don't we have better options in Naeem and Riyad? Especially, Naeem may be necessary to have to handle lefties. Also, if we one of the bowlers starts struggling to put the ball in right areas (as often happens with our team), it may be a good idea to have an extra bowler to replace him (as opposed to ask Sir Ash to bowl his loppas).

I call Junaid, Riyad and Nayeem Sid's Sissified Trio and hope to GOD they become desissified in time. Not talking about hitting 4s and 6s here but rotating the strike with ease rather than blocking half-volleys and full-tosses because Sid wants them to occupy the crease no matter what.

Once desissified, either Imroze or Nayeem at 6 would be fine but I'd go with Imroze because of better temperament, a major factor when we look at who's coming in at 7. Nayeem gives our bowling somewhat of a boost in theory once we underestimate the dew factor and the way it impacts slow bowling, but it is our batting which is in greater need IMHO. No Riyad under any circumstances. That boy has regressed.

Also, unless there's an Eid next month, I see Nayeem coming in at 7 to replace the Ahammok anyway.

Just to let you guys know..Ash will not play the first few games.

Just talked to Shakib on the Facebook. He said his good friend Raqibul is the first choice for all the games. So unless he fails miserably, Ash won't get a chance.

^^ Sohel bhai, earlier this evening we had a discussion on Riyad on this thread - http://www.banglacricket.com/alochona/showthread.php?t=35402

While I admit I myself was pretty irritated with Riyad over last one year from time to time, but stats say he was a pretty consistent batsman on home grounds in our matches against top 8, namely India, SL, England, and NZ.

We may have another 2003 in the making here. Worse, because this would be beijjoti at home.

@Eshen: I'm looking at Riyad's recent form including chronic discomfort in the middle. Watched him very closely against NZL and ZIM and found him seriously lacking. Also, we're talking about Imroze batting lower down the order at Riyad's place, hoping that his priorities will change for the better. Positioning and role matter.

True, Riyad has been struggling a lot since last February. But it may be just a bad patch he was going through. His DPL stats indicate he may have found his touch again.

Don't see much to feel enthusiastic about Zunaed at #6. He may been an option to consider if we were out of other options, but I don't think that's the case yet.

Don't underestimate the idiocy. There are plenty of retards and modons in influential positions who think he has "good technique" and can "safely switch gears". The classic combination of ignorance and not understanding what's happening right in front of your eyes is bliss as long as you're not paying the price, and there's always that scapegoat to blame no matter who took the decision.

That's what I thought. Back in 2003, organizers did not schedule any day-night match as dew could have been an important factor in February, in SA. If ICC anticipated anything like that, they should have asked the organizers not to schedule any day-night match in this edition of world cup also.

The thing is.....

Dew factor played a big role during the Idea Cup last January, but if you guyz can recall, we had the ODI series against England in last week of February and 1st week of March. 28th Feb, 2nd March and 5th March to be exact. And there wasn't much of a dew factor involved in that series, and we were on the verge of winning the 2nd ODI, but the umpire made us lose that match through the hands of Eoin Morgan!

So, keeping that series in mind, I would say, there's nth to be worried a lot regarding the due factor. 1st match is on 19th Feb, we might get a very little due on that particular day, then again, I believe that won't harm at all. And the rest of the matches are on late February and March.....so I believe due won't play its part Inshallah.

I am more concerned about the umpiring factor than the dew factor. Umpires will be under trendous pressure to give the benefit of doubts to India--no matter if they are bowling or batting. We sometime say it evens out at the end, but giving a life to Shachin and a life to Rubel is not the same thing.

UDRS will not be applied in 1st phase of the tournament. So we are in bit of trouble here. Umpire's decision usually against us.

The thing is.....

Dew factor played a big role during the Idea Cup last January, but if you guyz can recall, we had the ODI series against England in last week of February and 1st week of March. 28th Feb, 2nd March and 5th March to be exact. And there wasn't much of a dew factor involved in that series, and we were on the verge of winning the 2nd ODI, but the umpire made us lose that match through the hands of Eoin Morgan!

So, keeping that series in mind, I would say, there's nth to be worried a lot regarding the due factor. 1st match is on 19th Feb, we might get a very little due on that particular day, then again, I believe that won't harm at all. And the rest of the matches are on late February and March.....so I believe due won't play its part Inshallah.

Some hope after all the negative posts... like light end of the tunnel. :saint:

It was a bit dewey toward the end of our innings, which if it continues would make bowling second, a little tougher for spinners to grip the ball.)

This is what posted by Coach Julian Fountain about the evening weather condition in today's day-night match against Canada. May be we cannot disregard the dew factor after all. Not a pleasant news at all. From the discussions in this thread, I got the impression that dew will not be a factor in mid-February.

Imran says 'dew factor' to play key role in World Cup (http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/10022011/2/cricket-imran-says-dew-factor-play-key-role-world-cup.html)

Pakistan's World Cup-winning captain Imran Khan has predicted the "dew factor" will play a critical role in the outcome of matches at the World Cup.

"Apart from the related strengths and weaknesses of the participating teams I think the dew factor in day and night matches will decide results," Imran told Geo Super channel.

"I think any team batting second will have a huge advantage as the ball keeps on getting wet, the outfield is wet and bowlers find it hard to grip the ball," said Imran.

The cricketer-turned politician pointed out that in March and April in day and night matches pitches tended to be flatter because of the warm weather.

"And in these months I know by experience that the dew factor also becomes very important in the sub-continent," he said.

"In 1996, Sri Lanka won the final at Lahore because they chose to chase and ended up getting the advantage of heavy dew making life very difficult for the Australian bowlers."

The organisers have scheduled 36 of the 49 matches in the World Cup as day-night fixtures in the three host countries, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

The quarter-finals, semis and final are all day-night fixtures.
