DARWIN: The Australian and Sri Lankan teams blasted the state of the drop-in pitch after Australia wrapped up a quickfire victory at Marrara Oval. Australia’s second innings 207 was the highest total of a match where 40 wickets tumbled for a total of 667 runs in three days. This was only the second Test match staged in Darwin where a pre-prepared pitch is dropped in to enable Test cricket to be played in the ground, which is primarily used for Australian Rules football matches. “It’s probably obvious if a Test finishes like that with the quality of batsmen in both teams it’s the pitch probably not up Test standard,” Aussie skipper Adam Gilchrist said. “Australia don’t get bowled out for 200 twice, not very often at all,” Lankan coach John Dyson said. ”The wicket was difficult to bat, the wicket was seaming, but when Aust-ralia get bowled out twice for 200 that should tell you something about the wicket.” — AFP
