Veteran curator Daljit Singh under scanner for poor Pune pitch
New Delhi : After Pune Test match referee Chris Broad rated the pitch poor, which brought problems for veteran pitch curator Daljit Singh. Singh is under scanner after the rating.
This is not the first time he is under lens, the Nagpur pitch was also rated poor during the South Africa tour to India, when the hosts thumped the visitors within three days.
Another showcause by the ICC certainly has not gone unnoticed by the Committee of Administrators and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri will have to frame a reply within 14 days as per global body’s norm.
Daljit has had history of succumbing to demands of team management, giving one designer track after another. It’s just that Nagpur and Pune were too bad even for his comfort. The COA might look into the matter,” a top BCCI source said.
Daljit’s position will certainly be under threat as this is the second adverse ICC rating in 14 months.
