The pitch dispute is once again in the news before the final match between India and Australia. The pitch controversy that started during the first semi-final match is still going on. Before the final, questions are being raised whether ICC is once again going to make changes in the pitch of Narendra Modi Stadium like Wankhede Stadium. ICC has already made it clear that this is a normal process. Meanwhile, a statement has come from former Australian captain Ian Chappell, in which he has asked to stay away from all these things.
‘Play on whatever pitch you like’
The final match of the World Cup between India and Australia will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Even before this match, there is talk of change in the pitch. Yesterday, former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar gave a statement regarding this and said that this is the job of the curator. Gavaskar lashed out at the conspirators and said that the pitch is the same for India and New Zealand. Its use is up to the players. Now former Australian captain Chappell also said that the work of the pitch should be left to the curator, the job of the players is to play well on what is given.
It is the curator’s job to make the pitch.
Ian Chappell said I think the same way I’ve 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. Never mind the World Cup or anything else, the curator makes the pitch and everyone else stays away. It is clear that the former captain has also asked not to pay attention to such rumours.
