A raging pitch contestation may have taken the centre stage ahead of the World Cup semi-finals but Australia commander Pat Cummins on Wednesday said they’ve” faith” in ICC and his platoon has not faced any issue so far in the ongoing event. Hours before India’s largely anticipated semi-final against New Zealand at the Wankhede in Mumbai, reports surfaced that the Indian justice platoon operation has sought a’ slow pitch’ for the game.
“Yeah, I saw that (the report). obviously ICC have an independent pitch watchman who manages that so I am sure they’re each over making sure it’s fair for both brigades,” Cummins said ahead of their semifinal against South Africa at Eden auditoriums.
“So far this event that we have played on, I have not seen any issue.” According to the report, a fresh pitch was firstly planned for the first semifinal but now it’ll be played on an” habituated” face to help the home platoon’s baits, leading to pitch revision.
As per the ICC’s Playing Conditions for the World Cup, the host association is” responsible for the selection and medication of the pitch” and there’s no demand that a knockout institution must be played on fresh pitches.
Apropos, the pitch on offer for Thursday’s semi-final at the Eden auditoriums is also an habituated face and hosted the England- Pakistan group phase match.
The only reservation in their Pitch and Outfield Monitoring Process reads” It’s anticipated that venues that are allocated the responsibility of hosting a match will present the stylish possible pitch and outfield conditions for that match.” There has not been any sanctioned complaint from the Kiwis as both the brigades audited the pitch on offer at the Wankhede from close diggings on the dusk of the match.
