The pitch for the India vs New Zealand World Cup semi-final was changed at the last minute, sparking a controversy.

The original pitch was pitch seven, but it was changed to pitch six. This was done on the recommendation of the venue curator and the ICC's independent pitch consultant.

Some people believe that the change was unfair to New Zealand, as pitch six is known to be a spin-friendly pitch. Others believe that the change was made in the best interests of the game.
