Error while initializing two-dimensional array

In the following code I attempted to initialize a two-dimensional string array. I want to initialize it with blank spaces. It is giving error: "Wrong number of indices in []". Please also correct the return type.
public static string[] StripOffSalt(string encryptedString)
    {
        string[,] SplittedArray =  new string[,];
 
        SplittedArray[0] = encryptedString.Substring(0, 11).ToString(); //Salt
        SplittedArray[1] = encryptedString.Substring(12);   //Original Encrypted String
 
    }

It should be
public static string[] StripOffSalt(string encryptedString)
{
    string[] SplittedArray = new string[2];
 
    SplittedArray[0] = encryptedString.Substring(0, 11).ToString(); //Salt
    SplittedArray[1] = encryptedString.Substring(12);   //Original Encrypted String
 
    return SplittedArray;
}

The above code will resolve the error.
But, since you wanted a two dimensional array it should be
public static string[,] StripOffSalt(string encryptedString)
{
    // you should specify the size of the array you want to create.
    // here i have created an array having two rows and 1 columns
    string[,] SplittedArray = new string[2,1];
 
    SplittedArray[0,0] = encryptedString.Substring(0, 11).ToString(); //Salt
    SplittedArray[1,0] = encryptedString.Substring(12);   //Original Encrypted String
 
    return SplittedArray;
}
