ICC World Cup 2023 will be “Physically taxing” for bowlers, according to Pat Cummins

ICC World Cup 2023 will be “physically taxing” for bowlers, according to Pat Cummins.With only six of the forty-five days remaining in the 2023 competition, South Africa has already achieved the highest World Cup total ever 428.

That occurred in New Delhi versus Sri Lanka, where the two innings yielded 754 runs, a tournament record.

In that match, Aiden Markram hit the fastest World Cup century in 49 balls, and Pakistan defeated Sri Lanka on Tuesday by defeating their record-breaking 345 target.

Over the first eight games, ten hundreds have been achieved, causing even more suffering for bowlers.

“It’s actually quite a rigorous format; I think playing two or three games in a week is probably the most physically taxing,” Cummins remarked prior to their World Cup encounter on Thursday against South Africa.

“In a 50-over match, we’re going 15 kilometers. In Twenty20, I believe a bowling effort of one truly excellent over may win a match.

This isn’t typically the case in one-day cricket. It’s also uncommon for the bowler to have truly favorable conditions, which is acceptable. It’s just something you have to attempt to manage.

Bowlers from Sri Lanka have provided a glimpse of the difficulty that Pat Cummins has mentioned.

Seamers Matheesha Pathirana and Kasun Rajitha combined to give up 185 runs in their defeat to South Africa.

Pathirana struggled once more on Tuesday in Hyderabad as Pakistan ran amok, allowing 90 more runs in his 10 overs.

In their opening match of the ICC World Cup 2023, Australia, the five-time champions, lost to India by six wickets, despite the match being unusually low scoring in Chennai.

India reached their target in 42 overs after knocking the Australians out for just 199. Virat Kohli survived a missed opportunity at number 12 to make the match-winning 85.
