IPL needs bowling friendly pitches and rules to balance the contest

“ The ''batsman's game'' tag needs to go ”
“ Time for bowlers to toughen up ”
Vidula Menge: Cricket in India has always been looked at, as a sport dominated by batsmen. The advent of T20 cricket has taken this notion even further. There has been very little support for bowlers in the game, especially in terms of pitches prepared and rules made. IPL specifically glorifies the batsmen and their achievements, thereby sidelining the bowler's feats. As a result, most matches often end up being lopsided because of favourable batting conditions. The co-existence of both, batsmen and bowlers is essential for an even contest between two teams.
Monish Moorthy: T20 accelerates cricket, stripping it to its basics. There is still room for guile and patience but the essence of T20 is a bowler bowling at his fastest and a batsman hitting as hard as he can.

Even now on easy batting pitches, bowlers like Mitchell Johnson and Sunil Narine can be a terror to face. They stand out because bowling standards all over have fallen generally and too many substandard, unfit bowlers are ready to throw their hands up and complain of pitches and equipment hindering them, unable to bowl even 4 tight, attacking overs a day.

Batsmen enjoy the upper hand but the rules or laws cannot be changed just to bring bowlers relief. Bowling needs a revolution, and it has to come from within.

T20 Cricket is meant for entertainment and batsmen smashing the bowlers out of the stadium is all that the spectators need at the stadium.. But if the pitches are bowlers friendly too, where the average score for a T20 innings is 160 or - 5 would provide excitement too.. When pitches are bowlers friendly then the match becomes all the more exciting till the very last ball of the match is bowled.. Accordingly the rules should also be modified..

IPL is a platform to newcomer to show something. And learn from expert. So If the pitch is bowler friendly. We saw our new coming star of Indian Cricket team. Bowling pitch not only shows bowlers but also show a proper batsman. That's need for Indian Cricket team. And also balance the tournament.
20 Feb 2014
ipl should develop bouncy bowling pitches

T20 cricket leaves no room for bowlers to experiment and implement their strategies. It is the batsmen who take undue advantage of this rather unfair reality, bashing the bowlers all round the park, in all different and unorthodox ways. I believe, if the batsmen have the advantage of selecting uncanny strokes, the least that could be done is to prepare bowler friendly pitches. Else, a time is to come when we'd get to see no specialist bowlers. This is in interest of the sport and it's lovers.

Always it cant be batsmen game. it should be a team effort so bowlers should back up.
20 Feb 2014
that means no need to see the matches then.
20 Feb 2014
its time to test bowlers potential to bowl in batting pitches
20 Feb 2014
match interest will reduce when every match is low scoring .. we dont want to see match finish early
20 Feb 2014
We have matching bats men; why should we thinl about blowers. when we have batting power. only we need to the toss and electd to flied.
19 Feb 2014
We have already seen how malinga,morkel,jhonson took wickets in dead pitches. If team has good bowlers they will surely don't panic to any kind of batsmen.
19 Feb 2014
Its a batsmen game because audience enjoy batting more than bowling
19 Feb 2014
Though T20 is a tough challenge for slow and spin bowlers but fast bowlers like brett lie ,mitch jhonson can particularly enjoy themselves.
19 Feb 2014
we have good batting line better they have to go for attacking
19 Feb 2014
we need quality pitches favoring both bowlers and batsmen. Indian team , especially new players always struggles during overseas tours because they play here low quality pitches.
19 Feb 2014
kindly we should use right word quality pitches favoring both bowler and batsman. it is wrong to use a word BOWLER FRIENDLY . Pitch needs quality such as EVEN BOUNCE, DURABILITY FOR FULL MATCH , ETC. IT SHOULD BE FRIENDLY TO BOWLER OR BATSMAN IF HE PERFORMS WELL. MANY PITCHES WOULD TURN IN INDIA, BECAUSE LOW QUALITY PITCHES CRACK EASILY. EVEN BATSMEN COULD BECOME AS HERO BOWLERS ON THAT DAY. we can make quality pitches. it is not a big problem. THE PROBLEM IS CORRUPTION EVEN ENTERED INTO OUR PITCHES FROM THE CORRUPT MINDSET.
