KARACHI: Work on 13 pitches at the National Stadium in Karachi has slowed down due to the ongoing upgrade of pitches in 40 grounds across the country under the auspices of the Pakistan Cricket Board.
According to correspondent Bol-News, under the direction of PCB chairman Rameez Raja, the possibility of shifting the ODI series against West Indies to Karachi has been ruled out due to the upgrading of pitches.
Before the start of the new domestic cricket season, repairs and upgrades of pitches have been started on more than 40 selected grounds across Pakistan with the provision of the best facilities to the players on Grass Road in the light of special instructions of Chairman Rameez Raja. The construction of 13 pitches has also started at the National Stadium in Karachi for the preparation of standard pitches at the domestic level for better preparation for international competitions.
The Nandipur mud stadium used for the construction of the wickets has arrived. ۔
On the other hand, Australian soil is also expected to reach Karachi in the next few weeks. After customs clearance, imported soil will be poured on Wicket No. 3 while new soil researched in Wicket No. 4 will be used.
Agha Zahid, an experienced chief curator of the PCB, arrived in Karachi from Lahore to inspect the preparations for the pitches and give necessary instructions to those responsible.
Sources said that timely preparation of these pitches is not possible, after which Karachi has been dropped for hosting a possible alternate ODI series between Pakistan and West Indies. ODI matches between the two countries are 8, 10 and 12. June in Rawalpindi, but due to the political situation, the PCB is considering an alternative location.
