Indian pacer Shikha Pandey spoke against the new pitches made to make women's cricketer more appealing like the usage of smaller balls and shorter pitches.

She urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) “not to tinker” with rules to attract more audiences in the wake of a recent ICC webinar featuring New Zealand captain Sophie Devine and India’s rising star Jemimah Rodrigues.

The 31-year-old Pandey, a serving officer of the Indian Air Force, said that women don't aspire to clock the same timing as men but that doesn't mean that their abilities should be underestimated with superfluous changes. 

She does not want the boundaries to be brought in because women players have surprised in the past with their power hitting. 

She questioned why not have DRS, Snicko, Hotspot, all of the technical acumen and live broadcast for every game that we play anywhere in the world.

Shikha Pandey has 113 wickets from 104 international appearances.
