Rohit-Pant's injury is not serious Players are constantly getting injured

New Delhi. To promote cricket, the ICC decided to hold some matches of the T20 World Cup 2024 in the US. Currently, the World Cup matches are being played at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. There is uneven bounce on this pitch. Sometimes the ball stays low and sometimes it suddenly rises so high that the batsmen are getting injured. There has been an uproar over this pitch. Veterans have started raising questions on this pitch. Indian captain Rohit Sharma's hand injury is expected to heal before the match against Pakistan on Sunday. But before this match of the T20 World Cup, which is considered important to promote cricket in America, the dangerous pitch with open cracks of the Nassau County Stadium remains a cause of concern for everyone. Despite all this, the ICC has maintained silence.

Many veterans including former England captain Michael Vaughan have raised questions on the pitch. It is also being said that why some practice matches were not played on it before playing the World Cup match. During the match against Ireland, Rohit was hit by a ball from fast bowler Josh Little on the upper part of his right hand. He had to leave the field. Rishabh Pant was also hit by a bouncer on his left elbow. A BCCI source said, 'Rohit's injury is not serious. He himself has said that it is a minor wound. He will be fine by the match against Pakistan. Two practice sessions are also to be played before that.'

The pitch brought here from Adelaide especially for the World Cup is being criticized a lot. India has to play two more matches in this stadium. Irfan Pathan, who was the 'Player of the Match' in India's T20 World Cup final, called the pitch unsafe. He said, 'We want to promote cricket in America but this pitch is not safe for the players. If India also had such a pitch, then no match would have been played there again for a long time. The pitch is not good. We are talking about the World Cup, not any bilateral series.'

Rohit was surprised by the nature of the pitch
Former England captain Michael Vaughan said, 'It is a good thing to promote cricket in America but it is unacceptable to make the players play on such a pitch. You work hard to play in the World Cup and then have to play on such a pitch.' Rohit is surprised by the nature of the pitch and admitted that he does not know what to expect from it in the match against Pakistan. India's batting coach Vikram Rathore said that India has enough experience and skill to deal with it. Rathore said, 'We can only control what is in our control. This is a challenging wicket and we also expected it because we played a practice match here. We have to find a way to deal with it. The team does not lack skill and has enough experience. We will not have any problem.'

There has been no statement from the ICC
The ICC has not yet made any statement regarding the criticism of the pitch. The Indian team management is not going to lodge any formal complaint but the displeasure over the pitch is evident. The source said, 'This is a fresh pitch. There is grass on it but there are also big cracks. There should have been some practice matches on such a pitch earlier. This is not a T20 wicket and all the four pitches are like this. Thankfully, Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant did not suffer serious injuries and they are fine.'

The pitch will be reviewed after the tournament
Ireland's Harry Tector had to undergo a concussion test after a Jasprit Bumrah delivery passed through his gloves and hit his helmet. ICC's rules are clear about the quality of the pitch. There will be a review after the tournament and if the pitch is poor, the overall rating will drop.
