Trent Bridge has received an official warning from the International Cricket Council for preparing an "unacceptable" pitch in last month's first Test between England and India.

The ICC's Pitch Monitoring Service concluded the pitch failed to provide a fair contest between bat and ball.

The match ended in a draw as India made 457 and 391 for 9, and England scored 496, with both sides' bowlers struggling.

The match was the first time in Test history that both sides had put on a 100-partnership for the 10th wicket, with the stand of 198 between England's Joe Root and James Anderson setting a new world record.
