The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to prepare fast pitches
in every state for Ranji Trophy matches so that our players get used to
playing on fast tracks outside the country.
According to the sources, at least two fast pitches will be prepared in each
state for the purpose.
It is learnt that the Indian Cricket Board had, on Monday, held Team India responsible for their poor performance in the recently concluded ODI series in South Africa.
The decision to prepare fast tracks appears to be inspired by the fact that
our batsmen fell flat before the bouncy pitches of South Africa and fared badly.
