Rob Key: ICC Should Rate Indian Pitches, To bring consistency
Rob Key, an English cricket veteran, and commentator is calling for the ICC to standardize their ratings. While watching the Karachi Test on Day 1, Rob noted that while Pakistani pitches are often rated “poor,” the Ahmedabad pitch was labeled as “average.” He thinks that this inconsistency hurts the sport.
Rob Key questioned ICC for not rating Indian pitches the same way as the world. Rob Key, also revealed that he has faced major backlash in the past when he talked about Indian pitches. The last instance was when he criticized pitches in Ahmedabad.
“I might turn off my Twitter feed now for the world of abuse coming my way,” Key said. “Indian fans weren’t best pleased when I criticized the pitches in Ahmedabad last time.”
As Rob is in Pakistan to join the commentary panel, during the Pak Vs Aus match he has encouraged ICC to rate Indian cricket pitches in the same way as the world.
