Legendary Australian cricketer Ian Chappell spoke on the controversy surrounding the pitch and conditions in Indore during the third Test match between India and Australia. The match did not last more than seven sessions, with 14 wickets falling on the first day and 16 on the second day of the encounter. Much was said about the state of the pitch and Chappell was of the view that the pitch should be left to the curators without interference from the administrators. After the first day’s play, the former Australia captain expressed his opinion about the ongoing topic.

Chappell told ESPNcricinfo, “Should the players and administrators tell the curator how to prepare the pitch and what kind of pitch they want? That’s the biggest nonsense ever.”

“The pitch should be left to the curator. The curator makes what he thinks is a good pitch, and then you as the player go ahead and play on it. Once you’ve got the administrators and the cricketers to tell the people They give what they think the pitch should be like.” , then you’re asking for trouble,” he said.

The Australia legend also lamented the fact that curators sometimes do not enjoy any freedom.

“If someone says we want you to produce a turner, there is every chance that it will turn out poorly because as I say, nobody can really predict – unless they have a are not trying to produce a good surface that will suit everyone – then I think you are taking too much risk. Any player or administrator who goes to a curator and asks about a certain type of pitch Yes, he should be told and jump into the lake,” he said.
