The win India seized at the first test match against Australia was a close 31 run lead. The Test Winner would be announced after four of such matches. Second of which is live on December 14th at the Perth Stadium, in Western Australia. Australia bats first with 277/6 runs, and India yet to bat as this is being written. Let us talk about the match details later, let us now talk about the pitch they are playing in.

What is so special about this pitch anyway? Well, this pitch is not an ordinary cricket pitch, players usually play on. It is a type of Pitch, which is a 'Drop In Pitch'. As the name suggests, the pitch is made somewhere else away from the actual venue and dropped right in into place before the destined match.

The drop in pitch variety is a very feasible way of utilising one single stadium to showcase many sports competitions. Having a dedicated stadium for every sport is an expensive affair, to which this is the perfect solution. A single stadium can be used for multi-purpose if these pitches are dropped in on a requirement.

Along with the usual changes in the way the Cricket game is played, getting in more interesting changes will make the game much more exciting. The pitch which does not alter the performance for the initial days of use will get changes after a few days. Bowler friendly at the first and Run Friendly as they play by. Resulting in high scores and confusing performances, it sure will be interesting.

The brand new, Opus Stadium at Perth has now opened up for its First ever Test Match, that too with a Drop-In Pitch. The preparation to prepare such a pitch starts off a season earlier. The ground is layered with clay on the offseason which is made to settle for a while. The levelling and grass thickness and consistency can alter the bowling.

Hence, a bowler-friendly pitch is of more demand these days, which is the only way a balance of bat and ball occurs. The contents of a normal traditional pitch and a dropped pitch are same. The difference occurs with the combination of soil, clay and grass. Different types of soil, often not native of the country hosting will make a huge difference.

Talking about the pitch's behaviour, Indian Cricketer Virat Kohli had this to say, "I was pretty happy to see the pitch the way it is. I hope that no more grass is taken off the pitch because that will mean the first three days will be, obviously, very lively and we, as a team, are happy with that".
