New Delhi:

After Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant escaped injury in the match against Ireland, chaos was witnessed on the pitch of the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. One after another, the big former cricketer is making a statement about the pitch. The mega match between the two countries will be played on Sunday, but even before that, the pitch has focused negative discussions around itself. Two matches have been held at this ground so far, but the decline in the pitch is alarming.

T20 World Cup 2024: “O God, O Hariram, is this a pitch or a field…” May this T20 World Cup prove to be like 2007.

Former Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik, who recently said goodbye to cricket, said in a conversation with a website that this is not the best pitch. Pitches are usually designed to suit the batsmen in the T-20 format. The New York pitch looks good for the bowlers, but it doesn’t seem to serve the right purpose. Karthik said it’s a spongy pitch and also has unexpected bounce overhead.

The former wicketkeeper said that apart from this, it is also very low and not at all worth watching the match. Definitely not ready for the match yet. This pitch was prepared in Adelaide. It was held in Miami because the weather there is good. And then just two weeks ago it was laid in New York. Drop-in pitches are working particularly well in Australia, but not ready in New York. And it is understandable that people are talking about this pitch ahead of the match between India and Pakistan in the coming days.

At the same time, during the discussion, the commentator present on the show also criticized and said that it could prove to be dangerous. Karthik was very humble when he said that it was not the best pitch, but a ball that was played by Ireland’s number ten or eleven batsmen. His weight was forward, but the ball went over his head. At this stage it is dangerous.
