    ^^
    In arriving at the sanction, the ICC noted the comprehensive response provided by Cricket Australia, which did not contest the rating given to the pitch by the ICC Match Referee, Ranjan Madugalle, but highlighted that the ground is a frequently used venue


    which is irrelevant as it was a drop in pitch

    Another road produced, does the ICC give pitch ratings for ODI’s and T/20?

    Wouldn’t have thought so. I reckon the ICC would be applauding for a Road in a limited overs format because “boundaries yay!”

    I can understand T20s as they are just a slog fest but ODIs should have at least something in them

    Is there a legitimate reason not to switch the name of the gee to the MVFLG?

    I want drop ins banned for tests and odi forthwith

    MCC took away bats why not take away drop ins and bring back the bats

    While they're at it we need to update cricket ball tech which hasn't changed since 1988 at the least

    18 shield wickets in 4 days on the MCG. What an amazing pitch.

    Honestly something needs to be done, there hasn't been a result at the MCG all season.

    Ruined by scabs.

    Nothing says scab like a sport who has its home as cricket ground.

    Welcome to vfl...scabs.

    Melbourne CRICKET ground members should be ashamed.

    Disgrace to Australia.

    Scabs.

    Yep. Shows just how indoctrinated Victards are that they find this acceptable.

    MCG or Eden Park?

    I plead the fifth.

    Its not like afl will disappear so the pressure has to be on the Melbourne curators to stop producing such bad drop ins.

    There has to be a way to make a wicket that isnt a pile of turds. The technology is decades old and the mcg drop ins get worse every year.
