Good wicket promised for Mumbai Test

Mumbai:

Test cricket returns to Brabourne stadium after 36 years with the third and final match of the series between India and Sri Lanka and the organisers have promised to make it memorable with a good wicket for the December 2-6 game.

"It will be a good Test wicket, a typical CCI wicket.

The track will be hard and is expected to provide some bounce.

It is expected to help the bowlers in the first session with some moisture underneath," former Mumbai captain and CCI cricket secretary Milind Rege told PTI today.

The famous venue, which lost its pre-eminent status to the Wankhede Stadium, which is not available to host the tie as it's undergoing a major revamp, will conduct its first Test since the February 1973 clash between Ajit Wadekar's India and Tony Lewis' England.

Insisting that he as well as others are doing their bit to help the curator in preparing the ground to host the top-class fixture, Rege said that the grass cover on the pitch would be trimmed gradually from Sunday.

"The grass cover would be shaved from tomorrow," he said.
