T20 World Cup: Murali expects slow bowlers to dominate

Spin great Muttiah Muralidaran expects slow bowlers to shine over batters during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, starting with the qualifying round on Sunday. Muralidaran was in UAE with the Sunrises Hyderabad team and has had a close look at the pitches at the three IPL venues in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

“I have been out in the UAE for the IPL and looking at the wickets, it is clear that the spinners are going to have a huge role to play in the World Cup,” wrote Muralidaran in an article published by the International Cricket Council. “It will depend a lot on how the curators have prepared the wickets, but it looks like the spinners will be key as the batters were finding it hard to connect and it made for some low scoring.”
