"Kumble making unfair allegations"

The DDCA on Tuesday hit back at Bangalore skipper Anil Kumble for terming the Kotla pitch as unfit for T20 cricket and said that it was the most sporting track in the IPL.

After his side lost an IPL match against Delhi, Kumble had said that Kotla pitch was not ideal for T20 cricket since it gives advantage to the team batting first.

"I refute his allegation and I still maintain that Kotla is the most sporting wicket in IPL. The ICC chief curator Andy Atkinson had approved the playing facilities at Kotla and certified it fit for T20 cricket," DDCA sports secretary Sunil Dev said in a statement.

"Analysis of all matches at different venues shows that actually it is the most sporting wicket in the country," he said, adding that no other team had complained about the pitch.
