Cape Town - The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday announced that Durban and Port of Spain have been given official warnings under the ICC pitch and outfield monitoring process following the South Africa v New Zealand and West Indies v India Tests last month.
 
The sanctions take into account the Durban and Port of Spain venues’ history of producing good conditions for international cricket and commitment by both the boards to take appropriate steps to ensure similar events are not repeated in future.
 
Cricket South Africa’s response was reviewed by the ICC’s general manager of cricket, Geoff Allardice, and Ranjan Madugalle, while Allardice and David Boon, also from the elite panel of ICC match referees, assessed the West Indies Cricket Board’s reply.
 
Both the matters were decided in accordance with Clause 4 of the process.
 
Andy Pycroft and Madugalle, both from the elite panel of ICC match referees, in accordance with Clause 3 of the pitch and outfield monitoring process, had rated the quality of the outfields as “poor” for the first Test between South Africa and New Zealand, and the fourth Test between the West Indies and India, respectively.

The Proteas’ Test at Kingsmead ended in a draw after only 99.4 overs were bowled.
