Is it fair to abandon match b/w India and Srilanka..?

I dont think that the pitch is not playable... srilanka almost 23 overs and faced only less than 10 unplayable bowls .. it is not fair.. to abandon match... you think about 85/5 score of srilanka.... it is not first time with srilanka... what do you think about this..

No friend. My opinion varies from that of yours. If the pitch is a sort of landmine one with no bounce, then it's agreeable that a match could be played there irrespective of the low score that is going to be on the cards. But if it's a variable bounce pitch with the balls that could rise up quite high, then i dont like to see a game that is going to be held there. It's not a safe track for the batsman to play on. Even during the 1930's rough track conditions, cricket pitch of that sort weren't used and hence its not a proper thing to use that kind of pitches for the match. Moreover the delhi pitch came into severe criticism during the recently held champions trophy and even after, the curators showed little interest in rectifying the pitch.

I dont guess about pitch.. but when a match start .. pitch is observed but no one can find any error on pitch.. but when srilanka lost 5 wickets early then they complaints .. in many match.. we see a bowl is bounce enough to play.. so according me this is not fair decision of raffery . After match every one say about pitch that it is worst pitch.. but no one regards about same pitch before match why.... i think if srilanka loose only two wickets then play is continued...

Like in the match some deliveries were too bouncy but others were fine. In fact Sri Lanka has played 23 overs and only few deliveries were like this. I am no expert about pitches but then match should have been reduced or continued because if ball is too high then it will automatically be a no ball no matter what. So how it can it be unfit playing conditions.
