As preparations for the first one-day international cricket match to be played at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) Stadium in Ranchi are at the final stage, curators are also putting in all efforts to make it a good pitch.

According to pitch curator Basudev, it will be totally a sporting wicket and runs will be scored with an average of seven to eight.

India registered a convincing victory in the second ODI at Kochi after losing the first match of the series by nine runs against England at Rajkot.
