There’s another possibility: The retractable roof. The Marvel stadium in Melbourne has a retractable roof but cricket boards around the world have argued that it is unfeasible and expensive to build such roofs.
Mesh, Drone and Balloon Tent
The Telegraph Sport in 2017 reported that tests are being conducted on new technology in which a mesh canopy will be placed over cricket grounds to allow play to continue if it rains.
The tests are at a very early stage but the England & Wales Cricket Board, along with the MCC, has expressed an interest in the research projects. In this technology, a fine, transparent mesh would be held up by wires suspended through floodlights with a hot air balloon at the centre to lift it up and create a tent-like formation.
However, the issue of run-off water and safety in a high wind scenario is yet to be solved.
“Our spinners have done exceptionally well in the challenges and situations that they have faced. I think it is especially important for our bowling unit, because spin is our main weapon and weather forbids they will have a role to play. I think spinners know what my advice to them is, so it has to be kept as a team secret.
“We have seen the best example when England were 100 for no loss. Mosaddek and Miraz came and bowled to the two right-handers. They are bowling the best to the right-handers as well,’’ he concluded.
