Dharamshala pitch in question to host the third test of BGT

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the pitch of the IndiaAustralia first Test at Nagpur. Even before the start of the game, the Australian media had accused the Indian team of playing on the pitch. This time there are doubts about the third test in Dharamshala. The situation is such that the game may be shifted from Dharamshala to another field.

Dharamshala, however, has no problem with the pitch. There is a problem with the wet field. There has been a lot of rain in the past few days. As a result, there is still standing water in the field. As the pitch is covered, the situation is not yet clear. But the condition of the field is not very good.

The Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association is trying to make Dharamshala playable as soon as possible. The third Test will start from March 1. That is, they still have more than two weeks. But fixing the situation is not that easy.

BCCI looking for alternatives of Dharamshala

BCCI is preparing an alternative field so that there is no problem at the last moment. The Indian Cricket Board has not yet announced which ground will be played if not played in Dharamshala. They have been thinking. However, if the game is played in another field, they should be informed a few days in advance. BCCI has directed the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association to construct the ground as soon as possible.

According to board sources, a BCCI team is going to Dharamshala on February 12. They will go there and check the situation. Only then will the next step be taken. In this situation, an official of the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association said, there is still work to be done. They are trying to finish the work quickly. The cricket organization is hopeful that they will be able to organize the Test even if doubts arise.
