Dubai, Dec 1: The Intertiol Cricket Council (ICC) has announced that the pitch for the third Test between India and South Africa in gpur was "poor" and has in turn triggered a review of the performance of the pitch under the ICC's pitch monitoring process.
"In accordance with Clause 3 of the process, ICC match referee Jeff Crowe submitted his report to the ICC expressing the concerns of the match officials over the performance of the pitch. This report has been forwarded to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which now has 14 days to provide its response," the ICC said in a release on Tuesday. After the BCCI comes up with a response, ICC general mager Geoff Allardice, and the chief match referee Ranjan Madugalle will evaluate the evidence by watching video footage of the game and then come to a conclusion on the quality of the pitch.
If it is found to have been unfit to play on, the duo will also decide if a pelty should be imposed. IANS
