    Abbottabad stadium is extremely beautiful stadium. If the PCB can invest more money in this stadium in the future I'd like to see a few matches of PSL in Abbottabad.

    No love for bowlers I guess.

    It's not about the ability of the groundsman. They have only one job really and that is to prepare the pitch.

    The problem is in the soil. Black soil is the best soil for pitches as it is a good binder. In Pakistan there is a need for pitches with bounce in them. Then you can leave grass on top or even make a dry surface with cracks, it doesn't matter but the bounce has to be there. Not many pitches are fast but pitches around the world do have bounce.

    Wasem Khan actually mentioned this live yesterday so not much to worry about as he knows what he's doing. Pakistan can import the soil not necessarily from Australia or South Africa but from countries that have that type of soil. 7-8 centres should get revamped and also work on the wickets and outfield can be done at the same time.

    PCB also need to provide adequate equipment including new rollers, grass cutters and covers to make the groundsmen 's job easier.

    They seriously need to get the pitches fixed. It baffles me that Azhar and Asad don't speak about this. Instead they care about their runs only. As they play international Test cricket only they can describe the variation in pitches from country to country or even ground to ground and explain how hard it is to adapt from low bounce to high bounce. It's not a natural phenomenon that pitches in SC are flat an shave no bounce. It's to do with the soil quality and the amount of clay content mixed with soil. The groundsmen need to do courses on pitch development. In meantime PCB can maybe hire one foreign groundsmen and pay him well and get him to train the rest.

    PCB also need to bring in the soil that is a good binder and that would be black soil.

    Can’t just fix it by changing the soil man. The hot weather plays a big part.

    You are expecting miracles. It will take many seasons to repair the domestic structure.

    WACA, Perth. Fastest pitch. Hot in Perth. It's not about the heat man. It's about the soil. Black Soil is a good binder and hence creates a good hard surface when it's mixed with clay. This gives bounce and pace. Sun doesn't matter. In fact sun bakes the pitch and makes it solid which makes it even more fast and bouncy. It's all In the soil. Weather plays a part but weather can be countered.
