Good question okay let’s check it

  2. How much turn is in the pitch

Profit of point 1  the silly mistake of standing behind the stumps(distance) can be safe from miss judge example as sometimes edge don’t carry to the keeper if you had know the bounce of the pitch

Then you may be standing one step ahead and may be your first catch of the match

Profit of point 2 chances of stumping and catching the edges bit difficult but the perfect one is can be safe from this two plus you will be safe from miss judging the bounce and save some extra runs for your team
