Cricket World Cup Fans Slam Poor Pitches and Outfields Ahead of High-Stakes India vs Australia Match

Cricket enthusiasts are expressing their disappointment on social media over the subpar condition of the pitches and outfields at the World Cup, especially after some surprising results. South Africa achieved a record-breaking total of 428 runs in just 50 overs, losing only five wickets, setting a new Cricket World Cup milestone. Aiden Markram made history by smashing the fastest century in World Cup history, taking only 49 balls, while Quinton de Kock also scored a century. This total surpassed their own previous record of 417.

In another extraordinary match, Sri Lanka managed to post 326 runs, a commendable score in most One Day Internationals, despite the challenging conditions. New Zealand chased down England’s total of 282 in just the 27th over in the tournament’s opening match. However, even in a low-scoring match between Afghanistan and Bangladesh, the outfield was subpar, leading to incidents like Mujeeb Ur Rahman getting his knee stuck in the ground, sending dirt flying into the air.

Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka commented on the par score and mentioned that they had anticipated a total of 350 from a team like South Africa in these conditions. He believed that 370 would have been manageable, but South Africa’s total proved too challenging for them.

Fans have voiced their concerns about the unequal competition between bat and ball observed in this World Cup. With cricketing stars like David Warner, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Steve Smith ready to compete in Chennai and across India, further records might tumble in this highly anticipated World Cup.
