India vs Pakistan Pitch Report

The New York pitch is causing consternation. The ICC have said they have men working hard to change the nature of the drop-in surfaces after first-inning scores of 77, 96 and 137. Aside from heavy watering, which will only make for a slower surface, there is very little that can be done at this stage to change a wicket. Runs will be short again. Anything over 150 will be a match-winning total.
