India vs Australia Test Series: MPCA hits back at BCCI after Indore Pitch received “Demerit Points” from ICC


The ongoing Border-Gavaskar series is now favoring India with a score of 2-1, and the final game, which will determine the outcome of the series, will be played in Gujarat on March 9, 2023.

India would automatically qualify as one of the World Test Championship finalist if they manage to win the series.

Due to their opponent’s victory in the third match at Indore, latter already advanced to the World Test Championship finals.

The item that generated headlines following the third test match loss was that the match was concluded in less than three days as a result of a subpar rank turner.

The MPCA pitch, which the ICC called “Unusual for playing,” received scathing criticism after that.

BCCI received harsh criticism from MPCA for its poor pitch.

Speaking about the most recent development, a close source from MPCA reacted angrily to BCCI when speaking to a media outlet, saying that the Indore pitch was developed under the supervision of BCCI, who arrived 8–10 days earlier to prepare the pitch; MPCA had no involvement in the development of the pitch.

Pitching preparation is obviously under the supervision of the BCCI, thus assigning blame for the disastrous pitches to us is something we find completely incomprehensible.

The official went on to say that it is unfair to criticise Indore Pitch because every game has ended in three days if you look at how the pitches have operated throughout the series.

In contrast to previous pitches used in this Border-Gavaskar Series, the Indore Pitch was highlighted significantly more since it began spinning from day one, which is unusual.


Given the degree of competition these two have shown in the middle, the Border-Gavaskar Cup is avidly followed by cricket fans all over the world.

The World Test Championship championship game will be played at the Oval from June 7–11, 2023, with a backup day scheduled for March 12, 2023.
