“The odd delivery was also short on the second day, making it very difficult for the batsmen to build partnerships. I found the pitch to be ‘below average’ as per ICC guidelines as it was not an equal contest between bat and ball.”

Richardson’s report has been forwarded to Cricket Australia,

The second Test of the three-match series will be played at the MCG from December 26.
