- Bangladesh's cricket board today promised to improve pitches for international Tests after its two best venues were rated "below average" by the sports governing body following the Sri Lanka series.
"There was evidence of the ball breaking the pitch surface, which resulted in uneven bounce throughout the match, along with inconsistent turn, which was even excessive at times," he said in a statement.
"This pitch produced a contest that was too heavily skewed in favour of the bowlers, and didnt give the batsmen a fair chance to display their skills."
The opposite problem prevailed in Chittagong last week, when Boon said the pitch provided no seam movement and favoured batsmen, who smashed five centuries and six half-centuries over five days.
Any ground that receives five demerits from the ICC over five years is suspended from hosting international cricket for a year.
But a demerit point was not issued as ICC guidelines for pitch and outfield monitoring were revised in January, a spokesman for the council said.
