IND vs AUS: The final match of the four-match series between India and Australia will be played in Ahmedabad. There is a lot of talk about the pitch before this match. The pitch dispute has intensified after the match played between the two teams at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. After the match played in Indore ended in the first session of the third day, the pitch of this ground was given a poor rating by the ICC. Since then, a lot of talk is being done about the pitch in Ahmedabad. But now a source of Gujarat Cricket Association has given a big statement regarding the pitch.
How will be the pitch of Ahmedabad
The pitch at the Holkar Stadium in Indore was rated poor by ICC match referee Chris Broad, but the Gujarat Cricket Association would not want to take any such chances. A source in the state association told PTI that we have not received any instructions from the BCCI regarding the pitch and our local curators are preparing the normal pitch as we have done throughout the season. He further said that in the last Ranji match here in January, Railways scored 500-plus batting first and Gujarat team scored 200-plus scores in both the innings despite an innings defeat. Nothing will be different this time too.
With less than four days left for the Test match to begin, it is not yet known how the pitch will fare when BCCI curators Taposh Chatterjee and Ashish Bhowmik take charge here. “Obviously the BCCI’s ground and pitch committee has been giving instructions to the local curators for the past few days, but definitely our effort is to prepare a good Test match pitch,” he said. The last time two Test matches were played in Ahmedabad during the Corona epidemic. Both these matches were day-night and these matches were over within two days. All the matches played in the Border Gavaskar series have ended within three days so far. In such a situation, questions are being asked about the pitches.
Fourth test important for India
The fourth and final Test match to be played between India and Australia is very important for India. To go to the final of WTC, Team India will have to win this match at any cost. If Team India loses this match, then they will have to wait for the result of the Test match to be held between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. In such a situation, Team India would like to win the fourth Test match against Australia to qualify directly.
