The Chennai pitch has come up against lots of criticism . With back to back low scoring games of 130 and below , the experts and few current players have slammed the nature of the pitch leading to disappointing and unspectacular IPL games some of which has been onesided .
Parthiv Patel has put this very mildly saying this was not an easy wicket to bat on , therefore full credit to Punjab Kings for chasing it down easily .
However Brett Lee was livid with the pitch saying that it is a shocking cricket wicket with batsmen unable to get into any sort of rhythm and there is no swing on offer for the fast bowlers .
Even Ben Stokes , who has gone back to England due to his injury, tweeted , criticising the pitch vehemently
“Hope the wickets don’t get worse as the@IPL gets deeper into the tournament..160/170 minimum not scraping to 130/140 cause the wickets are trash,” Stokes wrote on Twitter.
With matches to start in other centres like Kolkata , Ahmedabad and Delhi , one hopes that pitches more conductive to T20 cricket will be on offer .
