India Vs Australia, ICC World Cup 2023 Final: Pat Cummins raises concerns after inspecting pitch

Ahead of the adrenaline-filled ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 Final between India and Australia at Narendra Modi Stadium on 19 November, reports arrived that the Australian skipper reportedly raised concerns with ground staff after inspecting the pitch.

Indian skipper – Rohit Sharma – for the second day in a row, had a long and hard look at the strip and felt that there was a slight difference from the track on which they played against Pakistan on October 14.

“That wicket (Pakistan game), there was no grass on it. This wicket has some grass on it. That wicket looked a lot more drier than this one – I don’t know, maybe you know, I still haven’t looked today how the wicket is but from my understanding obviously it’s slightly going to be on the slower side,” Sharma said.

As per details, used pitches generally favour spinners. The slow-blowing pitch is expected to help Adam Zampa, Glenn Maxwell, Kuldeep Yadav, and Ravindra Jadeja.
