    ICC Warns SL for Galle pitch

    Sri Lanka v Australia, 1st Test, Galle: Sri Lanka Cricket gets official warning for Galle pitch | Cricket News | Cricinfo ICC Site | ESPN Cricinfo

    "Whilst we do not wish to see a pitch that is too heavily weighted in favour of the batsmen, in this instance, the balance was just too much in favour of the bowler."

    Oh really? You don't huh? Can you please list the official warnings you gave out to pitches that resulted in draws? What absolute morons. Yea, who wants to watch a game like the one we saw in Galle? Let's instead play even more of matches like this, isn't that just so much more fun for everyone involved?

    An absolute ****ing nonsense.

    Whilst the pitch at Galle wasn't "ideal", whatever the **** that means, but it allowed for gripping, exciting Test cricket where the batsman faced a serious examination of their technique; yet the pitch wasn't so skewed in favour of spin that anyone could walk up and roll their arm over and run through both sides. The match in question was watchable because something was always happening and the pitch didn't markedly deteriorate to the point where it was unplayable. The pitch also wasn't dangerous.

    Let's sanction the one pitch in the series which a) produced a result and b) challenged the players of both teams yet completely ignore the two absolute roads that were thrown up. Good work ICC. And we wonder why the future of Test cricket remains in doubt?

    Indeed. ICC should also warn England for the pitches they produced for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th test against India.

    Why should England be warned because the Indian's were too **** to compete?

    I am not going to read the link or give the issue much thought but just want to join in with the wave of emotion and say Absolutely disgraceful decision. I say we craft a CW protest letter and email it to the ICC.

    Is it a disgraceful decision because people think the pitch was good for test cricket OR is it disgraceful because the ICC don't punish similarly unfit pitches such as roads?
