    "India Have Been Provided Favourable Pitches in World Cup" : Sarfraz Nawaz

    http://m.sports.ndtv.com/icc-cricket...-sarfraz-nawaz

    Karachi:*Former Pakistan pacer Sarfraz Nawaz has accused the ICC of favoring the Indian team in the ongoing cricket World Cup by providing the defending champions pitches tailor-made to suit their strengths.

    "You look at the matches played so far in this World Cup that where India has played the pitches have been prepared to suit their strengths," Nawaz, who played 55 Tests and 45 ODIs said on a TV channel show.

    The outspoken and often controversial pacer said that in contrast Pakistan was being made to play on pitches which were not easy for them.

    "Look at today's match the pitch was double paced and had lot of bounce which goes against our strengths. I would ask the Pakistan Cricket Board to take up this issue with the ICC and find out what is going on," he said.

    Nawaz said that Pakistan should lodge a protest with the ICC as one could see India was being favoured by the sportís world governing body.

    Former off-spinner Saeed Ajmal who was on the same panel on the channel declined to comment on the issue only pointing out that it was good that Pakistan won against Zimbabwe even on a challenging surface.

    Nawaz said that it was strange that pitches in the World Cup either were totally suited batsmen or were assisting the bowlers.

    He said that this same Indian team had struggled in Australia in the preceding Test and ODI tri-series.

    You know you're doing something right when rubbish like this keeps on coming out. When indian batsman score centuries, the wicket was flat. When they dont, oh Indians can only play in India they suck everywhere else. When Pakistan lost against India, BCCI banned our best bowlers and made us a weak team. If India had lost, haha India has been in Australia for 3 months and we've only been here for a few days and we still beat them even without our main players, flat track bullies exposed. Indian bowlers do well, the pitches suit them, Indian bowlers do rubbish well Indians cant bowl at all. It doesnt matter whether India wins or loses someone will talk crap about them, but guess what guys we cant hear you from the top of the table

    Well.. One thing India is lucky about playing almost all the matches in Aus. Most teams have to travel a lot between two countries. One match is in NZ other one is in AUs. I think Ind only plays one match in NZ against a weaker team only.

    They are hosting the world cup we played all games in Pakistan back in 1996 and 1987 even the semifinal in 1987 just for quarterfinal we went to Bangalore in 1996.

    Nawaz said that Pakistan should lodge a protest with the ICC as one could see India was being favoured by the sportís world governing body.
    For arguments sake, lets assume for a moment that Sarfraz Nawaz is right. He's asking Pakistan to protest to the ICC .... which is run by India (who Nawaz is alleging is being favoured) along with Australia (on whose grounds some of these matches are taking place and therefore would need to be the ones fixing the pitches in India's favour) ?

    That's like accusing a Court Judge of corruption and then asking him to investigate himself on corruption charges, with the help of investigators who were partners in his corrupt dealings.

    Talk about being thick.

    Our best bet is on quick and bouncy wickets where the batsmen are to a large extent neutralised and our bowlers are really able to use the pitch and extract lethal bounce from it. If it was a flat wicket, we'd have lost. This guy chats rubbish.

    I said the same thing few days back and opened a new thread, but it was closed.
    Look, even now, they are gonna play in Perth against West Indies, but before that they got a easy team UAE to get batting practice in that tougher pitch.
    No other team is getting this luxury. Only India.

    Every top team (except us obviously) has been able to score 300 plus on these pitches, let alone India. Cant say that the pitches have favored India to the exclusion of others.

    Totally agree with him. Guys like Kohli, Dhawan, Rohit, Raina outperforming our guys like Umar, Shehzad and Maqsood, Haris? I mean come on, don't be absurd, those guys from India couldn't beat us in our dreams, unless they were curated dream pitches tailored especially for them so that they would only benefit, where as everyone else would be at a disadvantage.

    He is right as a neutral and an Aussie the pitches have been a disgrace, there is nothing in it for the bowlers, NZ are the only country that have proved very good pitches, you have to earn your runs over there.

    What is he right about kindly point that when did bounce become Pakistan's weakness considering bowling is their strength.I agree these are batsmen's pitches but why single out India.

    Lol these guys should be careful what thet ask for. If pak batted on a difficult wicket they wont score 100 runs no matter which team is bowling.

    The flight time between Melbourne and Perth is 4.5 hours, and 5 hours for Sydney to Perth, Brisbane is further, what people living in other countries don;t understand about Australia is that it is huge. It take 7 hours from Melbourne just to leave Australia air space.

    Haha lol, in the match against India, they were undone by Indian pace bowlers. But yeah, conditions still suit India na?

    Indians just can't win fair and square according to such guys:

    If India scores 300+ - then its a flat track
    If India gets the opposition out cheaply on the same track - then its just scoreboard pressure
    If India bowls first and win and spinners get some wickets, its a pitch tailored for them
    If none of the above applies, its matchfixing

    What excuses that's just a point? BCCI influenced it of course. I am not saying Ind is winning cuz it or Pakistan is losing cuz of it that's how it is. Conditions are different in Aus and NZ. This way we have to adjust in both countries and it's harder. It's not a factor or important/only factor but just it makes life harder for a subcontinent team

    I think if we win the World Cup and India gets knocked out in QF, only then he will be happy.

    Otherwise, it will just be conspiracy.

    Mcg and Perth both have big boundaries as a fielding unit you have to cut down the angles to stop the extra singles. There is no sideways movement(swing) available in both grounds contrary to New Zealand where bowl swing in first 10 overs at least. In AUS you can bang short since the longer boundaries bring in long leg and deep square leg in contention but in NZ if you bowl a bit short you could be clobbers easily since edges also carries over slips. In AUS you have to be good on your backfoot no matter where you play in New Zealand you can't stay on your back foot as the ball moves and you would be eaten alive. I can go on and on but you get ther point..

    Could you give me a reason why ind is not playing in NZ just like other teams? You think it had nothing to do with your 4 months long tour to aus and acclimatization with the wickets here?

    I thought NZ pitches are even more batting friendly having boundaries shorter with 300's being chased with all wkts intact. SL did it against Anderson, broad and company.

    India plays 2 matches in NZ and 2 matches in perth.

    Don't think any of the teams other than pakistan had to travel like 3 times between nz and australia. So I do agree that schedule wise, Pakistan had a massive disadvantage

    Melbourne is the biggest ground in the the world, at least for playing cricket on, the playing area is huge, most grounds around the world don't come close, and the boundaries have been taken in by at least 10 meters.

    Cut down singles to prevent extra singles? LMAO. And how big boundaries are supposed to help India and not say South Africa - which apparently had a much superior fielding unit?

    There is no sideways movement(swing) available in both grounds contrary to New Zealand where bowl swing in first 10 overs at least.
    Nonsense.

    In AUS you can bang short since the longer boundaries bring in long leg and deep square leg in contention but in NZ if you bowl a bit short you could be clobbers easily since edges also carries over slips. In AUS you have to be good on your backfoot no matter where you play in New Zealand you can't stay on your back foot as the ball moves and you would be eaten alive. I can go on and on but you get ther point..
    In other words, NZ grounds are more closer to subcontinental tracks - with addition of perhaps a bit more swing. That's it. The grounds are smaller, the pitches are not really that bouncy and if you can negotiate a bit of swing, you can launch into the opposition bowling attack. You don't get tired quickly as compared to Aussie grounds. And you don't have to run as much as you'd on an Aussie ground.

    So actually Indians are disadvantaged by playing on Aussie grounds, as they could potentially do much better on NZ grounds.

    Dude, India is playing two matches in NZ.

    Also you realize that spending too much time away from your family doesn't have an effect on the players?

    Further all this does not present any sort of excuse - SA players are bred in such conditions from their birth. Why did they then fail on an MCG pitch against India?

    Give credit where due.

    India's results have been similar to all other top teams - barring SA against India. Thanks god that an Indian did not score 166 off 66, because then every ex-Pakistani cricketer would have shouted conspiracy.

    I am still awaiting an answer how the MCG pitch suited Indians more than the South Africans.

    Surely SA having played on bouncy pacey tracks all their lives would be more equipped to deal with the conditions than an India? Especially with batsmen like Amla, Ab Devilliers etc who occupy the highest echelon and bowlers like Steyn, Morkel etc?

    No amount of acclimatization can help India beat that.

    And its not as if India won by a small margin to call it a fluke. India thrashed SA left right and center.

    The whining is incredulous

    Funny thread but perhaps some truth in it and why not? India do own the ICC after all.

    I've never been a fan of drop in pitches, what's the point in having a turf wicket just lay down some concrete. Each ground has it's characteristics and that does influence the game by testing the all round game and not just the batting of teams.

    I'm also not a fan of brining in boundaries to make the pitches even smaller. Just look at the 92 final at the MCG and compare it to the Ind SA game this WC, the pitch was brought in at least 10 meters. Not saying Indian wouldn't have won either way just saying as an example. You lose that skill that batsmen have to get it right or they'll be caught on the ropes, especially against spin bowling. Gayle's inning got a bit boring, only so many slogs you can watch. It becomes way too one sided when they make the wicket and pitch so batter friendly.

    Indians or India in general just can't win, can they?

    When they win against Pakistan; match was fixed.

    When Kohli scores; pitch was flat.

    When they win; pitch was batting-friendly.

    I kinda agree...India has been provided with favorable pitches, favorable batsmen, IPL bounty, big 3 muscle, favorable relations with US etc etc.
