Ind vs Aus: Curator Blames BCCI For Bad Pitch
Mumbai: After a humiliating defeat by Australia at MCA, Pune, Indian team is now in search of reasons for the failure. Critics say the loss is mainly due to the preparation of the pitch and pointed their fingers towards curator of MCA.
BCCI changed the pitch a day before the match; we prepared good test wicket pitch with grass left on it. But by the order of BCCI’s Chief curator Daljeeth Singh, we removed the grass which showed impact on the pitch and match, MCA curator Pandurang blamed BCCI.
Senior cricketers Harbhajan Singh, Kaif expressed the same opinion that the pitch is not suitable for test match. After receiving match referee’s report on pitch, ICC panel has given BCCI 14 days to respond on the issue.
Australia beat India in first Test which is a worst ever defeat by home country in test matches. India could not score more than 110 runs in each innings. This defeat gave a break to India’s unbeaten run of 19 test win.
