There was so much debate and discussion on the pitch that was selected for the ODI World Cup 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, where Australia ended hosts India's unbeaten 10-match winning streak to lift the precious trophy for a record-extending sixth time. The International Cricket Council (ICC) revealed their rating for the Ahmedabad pitch and the ones used for the semifinal games.

The Final match was played on a used track. India were folded for 240 runs which was chased down by the Aussies with seven overs to spare, courtesy of Travis Head's marvellous century knock.

Before the big game, Australia captain Pat Cummins had raised a concern over the pitch, which was previously used for the India-Pakistan match on October 14, while his India counterpart Rohit Sharma stayed away from the talk around it.

According to some reports, ICC have rated the Ahmedabad track as "average". The rating was given by ICC match referee Andy Pycroft. The report further added that five of India's 11 games - against South Africa in Kolkata, vs England in Lucknow, vs Pakistan in Ahmedabad and vs Australia in Chennai - were played on "averaged-rated" pitches. Among the matches played by India on a pitch that was rated "good" by the ICC, that made by former India bowler Javagal Srinath was the semifinal against New Zealand in Mumbai.
