ECB and Notts respond to Trent Bridge rating

The England and Wales Cricket Board and Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club note the decision by the International Cricket Council match referee David Boon to rate the TrentBridge pitch for the First Investec Test Match as 'poor'.

ECB and Nottinghamshire are already working closely to address the uncharacteristic nature of the pitch for the Test match and ECB pitch inspector Chris Wood and Nottinghamshire groundsman Steve Birks are planning the corrective action required under the Clause 4.1 of the ICC's Pitch Monitoring Process.

It has already been established that the drainage system at Trent Bridge played no part in the unexpected issues that arose around the preparation and performance of the Test match wicket.

Both ECB and Nottinghamshire will continue to work together to resolve the issue and provide the required response to ICC within the 14-day deadline.
