Proteas and Windies in pitch battle

South Africa and the West Indies gear up to begin their Cricket World Cup campaigns with question marks over the pitch.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Richardson reports from New Delhi, where the pitch could be as unpredictable as the result when South Africa take on the West Indies.

    Cricket has been played at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground for more than a century, but a detiorating surface has meant that it has only just been passed fit again after being ruled out for internationals.

    South Africa's Graeme Smith and the West Indies' Darren Sammy give their takes on what could be the best match of the tournament so far.
