Answer
Dear Waqar
Geological conditions plays vital role in site selection for any design including cricket pitch
Soil of the terrain stadium where cricket will play -requires to understand the local geology of the region
For example Mumbai cricket pitch /stadium -lies on basaltic rocks-It resulted black spoil
For example in Bengulur pitch/stadium -falls in Archean crystalline hard rocks soil may be red red brown
Geotechnical engineers will study in detail soil types-soil engineering properties and appropriate design
I hope Cricket boards will have consulting geotechnical engineers for design of cricket pitches
Geology will play role in formation of soil-Engineers use the technology sil engineering
