International Cricket Council (ICC) recently tweeted regarding the ongoing controversy of Chennai’s pitch in the second match between India and England. The pitch was rough and have patches which were later criticized by England’s players. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) make it clear that there was nothing wrong with the pitch. Indian opener Rohit Sharma also replied furiously over the issue that pitches always made according to the convenience of the hosts. He even asks people to request ICC to made some rules on that if they don’t like the pitch.
ICC took Twitter to showcase their opinion on the issue. They posted a picture of the pitch which was on Mars and captioned it “We always said cricket was out of this world”. With this, the conversation that ICC will deduct points if the pitch conditions rated poor that can affect the World Test Championship seems to go in the drain.
We always said cricket was out of this world 😏
