Play was halted in Adelaide after the first session due to the bounce of the pitch.
The sooner a match started in Australia’s domestic cricket tournament Sheffield Shield, the sooner it ended the first day’s play. This match was being played between Queensland vs South Australia. The game started late due to rain in this match. But, after that the scene on the field was seen, after that the game had to be ended only after the first session of the day. You must be thinking that why did this happen? After all, why did the first day’s play have to be canceled after the first session of the day? So let us tell that this decision was taken in view of the fierce mood of the pitch.
Actually, the pitch on which this match was being played at Ralton Oval in Adelaide, there was a smashing bounce on it. This bounce was making the balls leaving the bowler’s hands deadly for the batsman, due to which it was becoming difficult for him to play. How dangerous the pitch of Ralton Oval was, can be gauged by looking at these footage shared by Cricket Australia.
Play is difficult, don’t play it is difficult!
In this video shared by Cricket Australia, you can see the batsmen of Queensland batting first. Marnus Labuschagne and Bryce Street are at the crease. And he is facing the balls of Southern Australia bowler Daniel Worrell. A ball hits Labuschagne’s hand, leaving his bat only. Street scares are seen on another ball when it hits his helmet. Not only this, the bounce is such that the batsmen are finding it difficult to play shots. And, when he tries to play those balls, he seems to be saved from getting out.
