The ICC has given the Jamtha Stadium in Nagpur, which hosted the third Test between India and South Africa, an official warning under its pitch monitoring process
A collection of comments made by the Indian and South African camps and former players on the pitch in Nagpur, which had variable turn, pace and bounce, resulting in a top score of 40 over four innings in the Test
The ICC has called the Nagpur pitch used for the third Test between India and South Africa as "poor."
The Nagpur Test ended South Africa's unbeaten nine-year run in away Test series, a stretch during which the team pulled off stellar performances. Which is your favourite?
South Africa's unbeaten run on the road may be over, but rather than mull over their loss, the team must draw heart from their past battles and start afresh to script another era of domination
