New York pitch in SL vs SA


Fans on Twitter reacted after the Sri Lanka cricket team had difficulty handling the bat due to the pitch at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. The match between the island nation and South Africa will begin at the newly built stadium on Monday (June 3).

The Sri Lanka cricket team won the toss and opted to bat first. It looked like it would be a high-scoring match at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. But things have looked completely different than they seemed, as batting has been extremely difficult in the field.

The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium pitch has posed a different threat to the batsmen and looks like a nightmare for the batsmen. The surface has offered help for both fast and slow players and apart from that, there has also been uneven bounce.

To make matters worse, the outfield at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York has been extremely slow, making it difficult for batsmen to score runs. The Sri Lankan batsmen looked clueless against the South African bowlers, who have been breathing fire.

Anrich Nortje looked unplayable as he picked up 4 wickets in 4 overs he bowled and gave away only 7 runs. This was the best figure for a South African pacer in the history of the T20 World Cup. Along with him, others have also contributed.

Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj bagged two scalps each, while Ottneil Baartman picked a wicket. With the help of the surface and fierce bowling, South Africa beat Sri Lanka by just 77 runs at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

For Sri Lanka, Kusal Mendis was the top run-scorer with his innings of 19 runs. Angelo Mathews scored 16 runs as the rest of the batters struggled to get going.
