Kanpur, Apr 4 (UNI) Grass will not be totally removed from the pitch of the Green Park stadium, where India will meet the visiting South Africa in the third and final cricket Test match, starting from April 11 here.
Green Park curator Shiv Kumar today told UNI that the grass would not be completely cleaned from the wicket, which might help the spinners.
There is already very little grass on the pitch, but if need arises it can be cut short, he added.
Reacting on the dispute in Ahemdabad, the curator said ''when we can play on Australian grounds having little grass then why should we fear to play on our wickets.'' Mr Kumar further noted ''we should try to play on fast tracks instead of the domestic tracks.'' The BCCI pitch committee president Daljeet Singh will visit the Green Park stadium shortly to inspect the wicket, he informed.
