The highly anticipated clash between two cricket teams is fit to end what has been a spectacular event so far. The two teams hold a press conference before they are reached in battle to win the new world championships. 

I am not a great pitch reader.

The skipper of the Australia team weighed in on controversy around the change in pitch at the last minute for the semifinal clash with the New Zealand team. Cummins looked at the final match’s surface and said, “ I am not a great pitch reader, but it looks good. They have only watered it, so yes, give it 24 hours and then make it look, but still, it appears a nice wicket. 

Australia is saying that they are ready for anything India throws at them in the World Cup cricket finals after the controversy. It hit the match in a row of “ pitch switch”. India made the Team of the World Cup and won 10 games on the way to the showpiece of the Sunday match played in Ahmedabad. 

Controversy was created in the semifinals.

In the Sunday match, the controversy is created in the 70-run semifinals in the New Zealand team. Afterwards, they emerge the game being played on the Wankhede stadium pitch used two times in the match instead of a freshly prepared playing surface.

India and Pakistan clash

A used pitch has no bearing in the finals of Mumbai, with over 700 runs they scored in the match. Pat Cummins asked if they had seen the finals pitch and replied, yeah, once a look. It looks fine; I think Pakistan played there. 

The arch-rivals Pakistan and India clashed in Ahmedabad 4 weeks ago. The hosts are cruised by winning Team by 7 wickets after winning the toss and dismissing opponents for only 191. Used pitches in favour of spinners, with a component of slow bowling and a five-man India attack. Here, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav are supposed to bowl 20 of 50 overs on Sunday.
