Sydney Cricket Ground voted the worst first class cricket venue in Australia

SCG has been voted arguably as the worse cricket stadiums when it comes to pitch and outfield conditions.

Cricket Australia on Wednesday publicly released for the first time the ratings of each Sheffield Shield venue.Pitches are rated on bounce,turn ans spin.

Officials have also not forgotten that a Shield clash against Victoria at the SCG was abandoned in November 2015 because of unsafe conditions.

CA operations manager Sean Cary said curators, on the whole, were providing "high-standard" conditions.

But a spokesman for the SCG Trust said it would seek an explanation from CA why an "unfair adjustment" had not been revised.

He said,



CA were advised by the match referee to review the poor rating given to the SCG pitch for the NSW v Victoria match. The NSW captain's rating was at odds with that of the Victorian captain and the officiating umpires.




CA says the "ultimate" day of cricket would produce 10 wickets and 300 runs.
