Trent Bridge pitch poor, says Boon

Calcutta: The International Cricket Council on Saturday announced that Match Referee David Boon has rated the pitch used at Trent Bridge for the first Test between India and England as “poor”.

In accordance with Clause 3 of the ICC Pitch Monitoring Process, Boon submitted his report to the ICC, expressing his concerns over the quality of the pitch.

This report has been forwarded to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), which now has 14 days to provide its response.

After the ECB submits its response, ICC’s general manager, cricket, Geoff Allardice, and the ICC’s chief match referee, Ranjan Madugalle, will consider all the evidence, including studying video footage of the match, before deciding whether the pitch was poor.
