CricketEx-India cricketer slams 'drop-in' pitch for Pakistan vs India T20 World Cup clash

Srinagar: Former India Cricketer Harbhajan Singh has slammed the drop-in pitches for the Pakistan vs India clash in T20 World Cup 2024 at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York on June 9.

As per information from ICC, a total of eight matches will be played in New York, including two of Pakistan and India each. A total of 10 pitches arrived in New York and the work of installation commenced earlier this month.

However, Harbhajan has raised concern about the pitches saying that no one has any idea how those pitches are going to behave stating that even pitch curators might struggle to anticipate its behaviour.

“Pitches there [Nassau Cricket Stadium] are known to none to be honest. Even the pitch curators might not know how many times will this pitch last. How much heat would be there how much water has been put in? How much bounce would it offer?,” Harbhajan said during a press conference organized by Star Sports.

“Once those practice games are played there, then we will get to know how the pitch is acting. And then we can think about combinations. Prior knowing that, we can’t say about team combinations.”
