Bengaluru Pitch ‘Below Average’, Match Referee Submits Report To ICC

The second and final match of the Test series between India and Sri Lanka was played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The Pink Ball Test match ended in the second session of the third day.

The ICC has been given a negative report on the Bengaluru pitch. Match referee Javagal Srinath, in a report submitted to the ICC, described the pitch as “below average”. According to former Indian cricketer Srinath, the pitch was unsuitable for competition between bats and balls. The ICC has added a demerit point to the pitch’s account as part of the pitch and outfield monitoring process.

An ICC media release said that Srinath had submitted a report on the pitch. “The pitch had a lot of turns on the first day, and although it improved with each session, I don’t think there was a match between bat and ball,” he said. Sixteen wickets fell on the first day of the match. After the Indian team was all out, 6 Sri Lankan batsmen were sent to the pavilion before the stumps.

Demerit points remain active for a five-year rolling period. If a stadium has five demerit points on the field, it is suspended from hosting international cricket for 12 months.

Bengaluru has become the second ground to receive a ‘below average’ rating in two weeks. Earlier, the pitch in Rawalpindi was also reported below average. Only 14 wickets were lost in the five days of the Test between Pakistan and Australia.

The Indian team won the Pink Ball Test by a massive margin of 238 runs. India scored 252 and 303/9 in the first innings. Sri Lanka’s batting was a complete failure. They scored 109 in the first innings and 208 in the second innings.
