IND vs AUS: The pitch controversy is again in the headlines before the final match between India vs Australia. The pitch controversy that started during the first semi-final match is still going on. Even before the final, questions are being raised whether ICC is once again going to change the pitch at Narendra Modi Stadium like Wankhede Stadium. ICC has already clarified that this is a common process. Meanwhile, a statement has come from former Australian captain Ian Chappell, in which he said to stay away from all these things.
‘Play on whatever pitch you get’
The final match of the World Cup between India vs Australia will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Even before this match, the matter of changing the pitch is in the headlines. Yesterday, former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar had given a statement on this and said that this is the job of the curator. Gavaskar, while making a scathing attack on the conspirators, had said that the pitch is the same for India and New Zealand. It is up to the players to use it. Now former Australian captain Chappell also said that the curator should be left alone, because it is his job to provide a good surface for the final. The players’ job is to play well on what is provided.
‘Making the pitch is the curator’s job’
Ian Chappell said that I think the same way I have always thought. The curator should make the pitch and the players should play on it and it should not depend on anyone else other than the curator. I’ve always said that about every pitch. Don’t worry about the World Cup or anything else, the curator makes the pitch and everyone else stays away from it. It is clear from this that the former captain has also asked not to pay attention to such rumours. Let us tell you that the former captain has given this statement to Wide World of Sports
