    Australia's cricketers arrive at Indian match venue to find four women scrubbing pitch with hand-held brushes

    Australia's cricketers have arrived at Rajkot, the venue for their second one-day international against India, to find four elderly women scrubbing the pitch with hard hand-held brushes


    The practice is used to remove grass clippings, before the pitch is again mowed to ensure it will be rock hard and brimming with runs.

    Australia won the first match by 10 wickets.
