Rahane said that conditions changed due to the pink ball in the second and third Tests. The pitch of the fourth Test will also be similar. I don’t know how it will behave.
Team India’s vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane spoke on the pitch of the fourth Test amidst the ongoing controversy over the pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. He said that the pitch of the fourth test will also be the same as the second and third tests. Actually, in the third Test played at the same ground, India defeated England’s team in 2 days. The pitch was then criticized.
Rahane said that the pitch of the fourth Test will also be similar to the third Test and the second Test played in Chennai. The two wickets were the same, but the situation changed due to the pink ball. This ball was faster on the wicket than the red ball. The pitch of the fourth Test will also be similar. I don’t know how it will behave. We will have to wait for this.
England team good, don’t take them lightly
Rahane said that England are very balanced and a good team. We respect him. We have played very good cricket during the last 2 Tests. England had a very good performance in the first Test. We are not taking them lightly. Now it is the next Test match and we will do our best. We want to do well and win the match. We have to play as a unit and rely on our strengths.
Estimates to help spinners and batsmen
An official of the Gujarat Cricket Association said that the last Test pitch would be played at number-4. This pitch is made of red clay. On this, the batsmen will also get a lot of help with the spinners. A little grass may be left on the pitch, which will help fast bowlers and batsmen for the first 2 days. This will not break the pitch too quickly. In such a situation, this match can also run for 5 days. Batsman’s batsmen who spend some time on the pitch can also score runs.
