According to a report, the board officials asked coach Dravid about that defeat. BCCI secretary Jay Shah, vice president Rajeev Shukla and treasurer Ashish Shelar attended the meeting with coach and the captain. Dravid reportedly blamed the pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Dravid said the pitch did not turn as much as the Indian team management expected it would have. The pitch for the final was a used one. It was the same strip used for the match against Pakistan. The used pitch was chosen on the advice of the local curator. The pitch for the final was watered less for it to assist the spinners, but it didn’t worked well. The head coach also mentioned, their plan had worked for them during the entire tournament but the final.
