Slowing pitches in UAE

For someone observing IPL 2020 closely must have observed that a lot of Yorkers are being bowled in the death overs, the dew factor has been playing a major part in the second innings and the pitches have been slow at times.

What Shane Bond said:

The former kiwi speedster and current Mumbai Indians bowling coach Shane Bond says that the slowness of the pitch is also encouraging bowlers to bowl length balls as the grounds are big in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

He also says that bowling Yorkers are a bit risky as if the bowler misses his length then it ends up in a full toss which the batsman smashes out of the park.

Useful Yorkers:

The match between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore finished in a tie and went into the super over where Mumbai could only post a total of 7 runs and Bumrah as a bowler had very less to defend, he bowled his Yorkers precisely and took the game till the last ball but could not win it for Mumbai Indians.

Similarly, T. Natarajan of Sunrisers Hyderabad destroyed the Delhi Capitals with his continuous Yorkers as sunrise won the match.

Hence as IPL progresses, we are bound to see more length balls and Yorkers as the players are finding it difficult to hit the ball on the slow pitches and big grounds.
