In the third (Day / Night) Test at Motera, India won by 10 wickets over England. With this Kohlisena
In the third (Day / Night) Test at Motera, India won by 10 wickets over England. This gave Kohlisena a 2-1 lead in the series. In this context, the British media, along with many former players, have been critical of the Motera pitch. It is said that it is a spin-friendly pitch that does not produce such a wicket for Test cricket.
It was during this time that a British journalist spoke at a press conference and annoyed Ashwin by talking about the pitch. He questioned whether the wicket made for the third Test was good. The team that responded to this was the India spinner. What is a good pitch? He demurred. With that, the British journalist told Kangutini .. ‘I am asking you that question .. Test match is a battle for dominance between batsmen and bowlers’. Ashwin replied, “What is a good pitch? Who defines it?” Collaborating with the pace bowlers first, then adapting to the batsmen .. And then if the spinners dominate is it a good wicket? Come out of things like that. No need to write about the pitch, ‘he said bluntly.
‘There are no complaints on the pitch from the England players. They want to improve on the pitches here. Outsiders are objecting to this pitch. We have not complained about the pitch on any of the tours, ”said Ashwin. Asked if there would be a balanced pitch for the final Test, the spinner said he did not know about it and that Team India was looking for a good cricket match. He said we don’t care what others think of us.
Former batsman Wasim Jaffer, however, joked about the matter. Ravichandran Ashwin said that England had not left them anywhere. He also posted a video of the interview on Twitter and trolled it for fun.
R Ashwin has had enough of pitch chat 🔥
