Cape Town - The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday announced that the pitch for the third Test between India and South Africa in Nagpur has been rated as “poor”, triggering a review of the performance of the pitch under the ICC Pitch Monitoring Process.

In accordance with Clause 3 of the Process, ICC Match Referee Jeff Crowe submitted his report to the ICC expressing the concerns of the match officials over the performance of the pitch. This report has been forwarded to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which now has 14 days to provide its response.

After the BCCI has submitted its response, ICC’s General Manager – Cricket, Geoff Allardice, and the ICC’s Chief Match Referee, Ranjan Madugalle, will consider all the evidence, including studying video footage of the match, before reaching their decision on whether or not the pitch was poor and if so, whether a penalty should be imposed.

The ICC will make no further comments until Mr Allardice and Mr Madugalle have reached their decision.

The Nagpur Test was played from November 25-27 in which India scored 215 and 173, while South Africa scored 79 and 185.
