Polo cricket pitches among best in India: BCCI curator


The hard work of the Meghalaya Cricket Association to develop MCA Cricket Ground in Polo is paying off with BCCI’s Chief Curator praising the pitch square as one of the best in India.
For the entire 2022-23 domestic cricket season, the ground has been put under the control of the BCCI, whose regulations and norms will be followed.
MCA has done extensive work on improving the ground—reorienting the pitch, bringing in new soil and new grass varieties since before the Covid-19 pandemic with the support of the BCCI.
The chief curator, Ashish Bhowmick, remarked on the massive progress made since he last visited before the pandemic. “The ground is much better than earlier and the pitch square, in particular, is one of the best in India,” Bhowmick said.
“It’s very challenging to maintain cricket fields in the North East because of the rain and less sunlight and all the states in the region face that challenge,” he said.
