Since our bowlers need help from pitch to bowll well, they suffered heavily due to dew. Even commies were saying pitch had changed its behavior. In the first half, ball was keeping low and slow. But in the second half, ball was coming sweetly to bat. Its not that if we had full 50 overs, we wouldn't have lost the game but who knows !
these, where we lost the match. now people will say excuses, but same with Srilankan bowlers would have happened you are unable to grip ball, the ball coming quicker to batsman with the speed of bat, ball skidding. When we faced their bowling ball coming slow your are prone to mistime shots, ball getting low you had to adjust late. So, yes I say floodlights really did the trick..
