Dubai: Criticised by all quarters, the Trent Bridge pitch, on which India and England played out a dull draw in their opening Test, was on Saturday declared "poor" by ICC match referee David Boon and ECB could be penalised for it pending an investigation.
In accordance with Clause 3 of the ICC Pitch Monitoring Process, Boon submitted his report to the ICC expressing his concerns over the quality of the pitch.
This report has been forwarded to the England and Wales Cricket Board, which now has 14 days to provide its response.
