Ind vs Aus 2nd ODI 2020: Australian Spinner Adam Zampa Says ‘Something Needs to Be Done About Slow Over-Rates’

Sydney, November 28: Australia spinner Adam Zampa has admitted that something definitely needs to be done about the slow over-rates in cricket. His remark came after the conclusion of the first ODI between India and Australia.

The Indian team was fined 20 per cent of their match fees for maintaining a slow over-rate in the first ODI. Also Read | How to Watch Bengaluru FC vs Hyderabad FC, Indian Super League 2020-21 Live Streaming Online in IST? Get Free Live Telecast and Score Updates ISL Football Match on TV in India.

The first ODI between India and Australia had gone past the Sydney Cricket Ground’s curfew limit for the lights. “I don’t know what the ruling should be, or if there should be punishment, but something definitely has to be done about it. From a viewers’ point of view, it’s probably not the best look for the game,” ESPNCricinfo quoted Zampa as saying. Also Read | LPL 2020 Free Live Streaming Online in India: Watch Galle Gladiators vs Colombo Kings Lanka Premier League Match Telecast on TV.

Zampa also suggested that players maybe lacked the time in order to get the proper intensity required to play ODI cricket. The spinner also said that they were allowed to train during the quarantine period, but it is hard to replicate the pressure of the international game.

“I wouldn’t want to make excuses but it’s really hard to imitate the pressure of one-day cricket and the best way to do it was when you are together as a squad and you do fielding sessions and the intensity of the training is at that international standard,” said Zampa.

After the conclusion of the first ODI, Australia batsman Steve Smith had also admitted that the first ODI against India lasted for a long duration. “It felt like it went all day. The longest 50 overs in the field I’ve ever had, that’s for sure,” Smith said.

Australia had defeated India by 66 runs in the first ODI of the three-match series. Both teams will now lock horns in the second ODI on Sunday at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
