After North Zone’s ‘time-wasting technique’ during the Duleep Trophy semifinals, the Spirit of Cricket issue flares up

<p>On July 8, South Zone defeated North Zone by two wickets to go to the Duleep Trophy semifinal. Tilak Varma, Ricky Bhui, and R Sai Kishore all contributed to their team’s success. Although North Zone’s time-wasting strategy has generated a lot of discussion, South Zone’s calculating during the run-chase shone out after multiple delays caused by unfavourable light interruptions.<br />
South Zone needed to score 215 runs to win the game after giving up a three-run advantage in the first inning. In order to catch up to the objective and advance to the final, South Zone needed 194 runs on the last day. However, bad umpiring and North Zone’s stall tactics didn’t help.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-65479″ src=”×422.jpg” alt=”” width=”1351″ height=”760″ srcset=”×422.jpg 750w,×576.jpg 1024w,×432.jpg 768w,×220.jpg 390w,×84.jpg 150w, 1200w” sizes=”(max-width: 1351px) 100vw, 1351px” /></p>
<p>A frustrating period of play saw 5.5 overs bowled in 53 minutes, including 12 minutes for one over (the 35th), as captain Jayant Yadav frequently moved his field, made constant changes, brought on sawdust to improve the bowler’s landing area, and other such things because if the game ended in a draw, North Zone would have won it due to the three-run advantage in the first innings.</p>
<p>Hanuma Vihari, captain of the South Zone, praised his batters for the calculated run-chase they achieved and said that he wouldn’t have changed his strategy if he had been in the North Zone’s shoes. He said that everyone wants to win.</p>
<p>“I believe that is how domestic cricket is. In order to get an edge, I’ve seen a number of games when teams attempt to stall in the last few overs. Even if I had been the captain, I would have done the same thing, despite some saying it wasn’t in the spirit of the game.</p>
<p>“They ultimately came out on the losing end, but under poor lighting, they may have prevailed. To some extent, whatever done to win is fair. They seized the chance for a potential triumph, but they will be fined for their tardy overrate. The rhythm is impacted by the delaying strategies, but I warned Tilak and Ricky to be ready for it. We sent a message stating we had the time and would accept singles if the weather improves. The key was communication, and we performed well on that front, said Vihari.</p>

<p>Dodda Ganesh, a former cricketer for India and Karnataka, praised South Zone’s victory despite several obstacles, and he also chastised North Zone while bringing up the Spirit of Cricket.</p>
