Gavaskar told ‘Sports Today’, “The commentators were saying that there was no dew effect today, so I think dew didn’t play that much role in this match (final), but I think it was there in previous matches. And maybe it needs to be looked into.” He said, “But you can say that if the group matches were played at the same time, then why change the timing of the knockouts.” Gavaskar said, “But Once again, I think this will have to be considered by the ICC Cricket Committee and ensure that both the teams get a level playing field.
