Cape Town - The International Cricket Council (ICC) have announced that Jamtha Stadium in Nagpur has been given an official warning under the ICC Pitch Monitoring Process following the third Test between India and South Africa.

The sanction took into consideration the fact that there had been no concerns about the performance of the pitch after any of the other international matches played at this venue.
