Bhubaneswar: Pich T Pich. What about artificial pitch again? After the 2024 edition of the IPL, the T20 World Cup will be played jointly by the United States and the West Indies. And the preparation for this is in the final stage. But there is a lot of talk about the pitch that has been prepared in New York. And the group match between India and Pakistan will be played in New York. The pitch made for the match is slightly different from the other pitches. The pitch that will be used in the newly built New York in America has been ordered from outside. This means that ‘drop-in’ pitches will be used here.

What is a ‘drop-in’ pitch? A special pitch is usually prepared at the ground where the match is played. Pitches are made separately for New York. That means ‘drop-in’ pitches will be used. ‘Drop-in’ pitches are made outside the venue. During the match, that pitch is brought and scattered on the ground. 10 drop-in pitches are being built in Florida from December for the T20 World Cup. These pitches are being prepared under the supervision of Damier Hogg, Chief Curator of Adelaide Oval Turf Solutions.
