Default After Chittagong, now Mirpur pitch gets 'below' average rating

Quote:
The pitch at the Shere Bangla National Stadium has been rated "below average" by the ICC for its performance in the second Test between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. As a result, the Mirpur ground has received one demerit point, which will remain on its record for a five-year period. If the venue reaches a total of five demerit points during the five-year period, it will be suspended from hosting any international cricket for 12 months.

Before, during and after the Test match, the pitch received a lot of flak for being too dry and spin-friendly. Sri Lanka crushed Bangladesh by 215 runs in a contest in which the highest team total was 226. Spinners took 30 of the 38 wickets that fell to the bowlers, with both sides fielding just one seamer each.

In his remarks, match referee David Boon, who gave the rating, said: "From day one, there was evidence of the ball breaking the pitch surface, which resulted in uneven bounce throughout the match, along with inconsistent turn, which was even excessive at times. This pitch produced a contest that was too heavily skewed in favour of the bowlers, and didn't give the batsmen a fair chance to display their skills."

It has been a particularly chastening time for the BCB, with the Chittagong pitch for the first Test also receiving a below-average rating from Boon. That game produced the second-highest match aggregate - 1533 runs - in Bangladesh, and the lowest wicket count - 24 - in matches lasting 2000 or more balls.

Last September, the Shere Bangla National Stadium's outfield received a "poor" rating from the ICC for the Bangladesh-Australia Test at the venue.

Good. If both these venues are banned. We could see test cricket the best stadium with best location in BD. Sylhet.

And other venues could get matches too.

Somethings got to end these two venues.

Why they rate the pitch? Instead, shouldn't they rate the team?

Are they rating these wickets on Yelp?

The sylheti is a colorful creature.

It wastes absolutely no time letting the world know it’s beating it’s own drum.... even in situations that doesn’t call for it.

So it's okay if NZ Aus make 400+ runs in a T20 match and somehow we are on blast? Big 3ish level elitism FFS.

From what we have seen here, pitches can get demerit points if it leans toward favoring either bowling or batting. There has to be a balance. Mostly, test matches are under scrutiny. However, they have to consider the weather conditions. That can also influence the pitch behavior which is completely out of curator's hand.

looking at it another way, a simple average of the two pitches would have been a perfect sporting wicket balanced 60:40 bat:ball !

The quality of pitches and outfield has gone down drastically since last year. Even during BPL it was visible. It's time to expand the games in alternate venues so frequently used stadiums (Mirpur specifically) does not get worn out. Sylhet and Cox's Bazar deserve more games.

The NZ-Aus game scores had little to do with the pitch, more the size of the ground.
