In the four-match Test series to be held between India and Australia, the pitch is being cared for a lot. The Test series field will be asked to animate so the game can see the rebound.
New Delhi. Former selectors and pundits believe that as India’s current batting line-up finds it difficult to take on spinners on bouncing pitches, the team’s management will look to live pitches in the upcoming four-match Test series against Australia, which will provide rebound from the third day Meeting started There was a time when the Indians were considered to be masters of the spin game, but in recent years the team has been comfortable against fast bowling while battling slow bowling. If you have to look at anyone’s best innings at a bouncy pitch in the last two or three years, it has to be current boss Rohit Sharma’s technically perfect 161 off a poor pitch from Chepauk while the other top-order hitters struggled.
An attack like Mehidy Hasan Miraj, Shakib Al Hasan and Taijul Islam had put India out of the game in the second Test at Mirpur last year, but Ravichandran Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer brought them back. Murali Karthik, a former Test commentator and spinner, said that playing spinners on a flat field is not a problem. We have to accept that our batsmen struggle while spinning bowling on bouncy pitches. I don’t know what kind of pitch will be thrown, but a bouncy pitch can backfire.
Considered one of the best left-arm spinners of his generation, Karthik said that even at the national level, there aren’t many players who can play spinners well. When asked who should be India’s third player between Kuldeep Yadav and Akshar Patel, he said that he would depend on the pitch. He said: “Kuldeep is a good option on a flat course. If he starts to recover from day 2 onwards, the characters can play. But the third wheel isn’t used much because you expect your main two wheels to work just fine. Former selectors feel that Axar Patel is expected to be the third player. Former national selector Jatin Paranjpe said that according to me Akshar Patel should be the third player along with Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. Given his shape, he would be my first choice.
They also feel that India will not dig a hole for themselves by doing a rebound shot, but they feel that turn-based shooting will be good from the second day. Paranjpe said that I am sure that Rohit, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli will play comfortably against Nathan Lyon. His former teammate Devang Gandhi also agreed with him that Akshar should be the third player. Meanwhile, former MSK chief selector Prasad feels that Shubman Gill’s confidence in his recent form will be beneficial and he should drop him as a starter.
Former India wicketkeeper Prasad has said he has no problem with KL Rahul playing number five in the Tests. I don’t think Gill should be pushed down the order. Rahul has played well in 50 over cricket and I see no reason not to have him batting further down the order. Prasad feels that it will be a bit difficult to choose between Akshar and Kuldeep.
