had these questions for a while and nows as good a time as any to ask:

1) who is charge of maintaining pitches during multi-lateral series such as the World Cup/Champions trophy/Asia Cup? is it the host nation, or some nuetral group?

additionally, when the host nation plays, can they request the curators to produce a certain type of wicket as they normally due in a bi-lateral series?

2) what happens in an ODI match when match is finished with the scores level? is it automatically a tie, or will the team with most wickets intact win?

3) who gets to call during the coin toss? is it always the visiting captain (as in american sports)? what about when both teams are playing in a nuetral venue?

Ans 1) Host nation
2) Tie (the less wicket rule was there for few days only and still only used for some domestic competitions but cant verify...)

3) The host captain tosses the coin and the opposition team decides the head or a tail. Not sure abt two neutral teams. I guess the match referee decides about that. Captains hardly care abt who gets to call.

Ans: Without ICC Approval the Venue is Never Declared as a Test Venue or International Venue. Basically Host Nation Maitain The Pitch. There is always a Committee from the Cricket Board (Host Nation) to do That. But the Pitch Type is Totally Controlled by That Particular Pitch Curator and Grounds Committee. A Host Captain can Request to Change but S/he cannot Order. In a ICC Approved Tournament Host Nationa Captain Cannot Do That.

Example: In 1997/98 When England Went to West Indies the First Test was going to Perform in Sabina Park. It was a 6 Test Series. The Score was Like This

England 1st innings
*MA Atherton c Campbell b Walsh 2 (7)
+AJ Stewart not out 9 (26)
MA Butcher c SC Williams b Walsh 0 (1)
N Hussain c Hooper b Ambrose 1 (18)
GP Thorpe not out 0 (10)
Extras (b 4, nb 1) 5
Total (3 wickets, 10.1 overs) 17

FoW: 1-4 (Atherton, 2.1 ov), 2-4 (Butcher, 2.2 ov),
3-9 (Hussain, 7.2 ov).

Bowling O M R W
Walsh 5.1 1 10 2
Ambrose 5 3 3 1 (1nb)

The English Batters were Hitted 7 Times within 10.1 Overs and The Match was Abonded. Later on A Committee Decided to Perform The Test in Port of Spain.

2) what happens in an ODI match when match is finished with the scores level? is it automatically a tie, or will the team with most wickets intact win?

Ans: Usually The Match is Tie. In Case of Multi Nation Tournament, Either Nit Run Rate is Calculated or Tournament Committee Declared the Winning Process Before the Tournamnet According to ICC Rules. Now a Day Every Tournament is Performed with Bonus Poin System. (Watch Commonwealth Bank Series)

Example: In 1999 World Cup The Semi Final Match Between Australia Vs South Africa was a Tie Match. But Though Australia Beat South Africa in Super-Six Level, Australia was Selected for The Final.

3) who gets to call during the coin toss? is it always the visiting captain (as in american sports)? what about when both teams are playing in a nuetral venue?

Ans: Usually Visiting Captain. In a Neutral Venue, Anyone Can Call but with The Presence of Match Referee. Sorry, I am Not 100% Sure. You Can Visit
