BCCI Lands in Hot Water over World Cup Final pitch Issue

After India’s loss to Australia in the World Cup 2023 Final last Sunday, supporters voiced their dissatisfaction, directing criticism towards the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for choosing a sluggish and worn-out pitch for the pivotal match at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. The final’s playing surface was identical to the one used in the league stage against Pakistan, which had previously garnered negative feedback for its slow pace. The persistence in selecting a comparable pitch has sparked renewed censure against the Indian board, eliciting disappointment from online followers. Explore fan responses provided below.

In the Mumbai World Cup semi-final clash between India and New Zealand, apprehensions regarding the pitch emerged. Originally, pitch number seven was designated for crucial matches based on the evaluation by ICC consultant Andy Atkinson. However, there was a sudden alteration, and pitch number six, previously employed in the England-South Africa and India-Sri Lanka games, was chosen instead. Nonetheless, the matter was promptly resolved as a well-suited batting wicket was readied at the Wankhede Stadium.

In spite of India’s impressive performance in the ICC World Cup 2023, the Men In Blue have yet to secure an ICC trophy. The team’s most recent victory dates back to the Champions Trophy in 2013 in England, under the leadership of former captain MS Dhoni. Despite having two chances to end this trophy drought in 2023, first in the World Test Championship (WTC) Final against Australia and then in the ICC World Cup 2023 against the same opponent, they faced setbacks in these pivotal encounters.
