"The ICC added that it will make no further comment until Allardice and Madugalle have reached their decision."
Dubai, July 19 - The International Cricket Council (ICC) Saturday said that David Boon of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees, who officiated in the first Test between India and England at Nottingham, has rated the pitch used at Trent Bridge as poor.

In accordance with Clause 3 of the ICC Pitch Monitoring Process, Boon submitted his report to the ICC expressing concern over the quality of the pitch. The report has been forwarded to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) which now has 14 days to provide its response.

After the ECB has submitted its response, ICC General Manager - Cricket Geoff Allardice and the ICC chief match referee Ranjan Madugalle will consider all the evidence, including studying video footage of the match, before reaching a decision on whether or not the pitch was poor and if so, if a penalty should be imposed in accordance with Clause 4 of the ICC Pitch Monitoring Process.

The ICC added that it will make no further comment until Allardice and Madugalle have reached their decision.

The Trent Bridge Test was played July 9-13 in which India scored 457 and 391/9 declared while England totalled 496 in their only innings.
