India’s Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane on Tuesday stated there isn’t a have to take criticism of the spin-friendly pitches within the nation “seriously” as not a phrase is spoken in regards to the “damp” tracks elsewhere and England can count on one other turner in the fourth Test. There has been plenty of discuss spinning tracks within the second Test at Chepauk and the pink ball sport at Motera which ended inside two days. The fourth and ultimate Test begins on March 4. “I think the wicket will be similar to the second Test match in Chennai, spinning track. Yes, pink ball made the difference and it came much quicker off the wicket compared to red ball and we had to make adjustments,” Rahane said throughout a digital media convention in Ahmedabad.
“Wicket will be a lot similar to last two test matches,” he added.
Rahane, for the primary time in a few years, shed his reticence when requested to reply to the criticism from former England gamers that the pitches haven’t been very best. Some have even urged the ICC to behave towards India for making ready a turner.
“See, let people speak what they want to. The wickets, when we tour abroad, no one speaks about how seaming they are. They always speak about the technique of the Indian batsmen, I don’t feel we need to take seriously what people say,” Rahane was sharp in his response.
“You see, when we tour abroad, the first day wicket is damp. When wicket becomes grassy and behaves up and down, then the pitch becomes dangerous but we haven’t complained about it or we have never spoken about it.”
Despite the humiliation that Indian inflicted on England within the third Test, Rahane was respectful of England’s probabilities on one other turner.
“Pitch looks similar but I don’t know how it’s going to play. We have to wait and see,” he stated.
“We respect the England team. They are a very good team. We played good cricket in last two Tests and England played really well in the first game.
“We usually are not taking them flippantly, and each groups will go on the market and look to offer their greatest to win the Test match,” he stated.
He also hinted that veteran pacer Umesh Yadav might get a look in.
“Umesh is able to go. Looking good and had a very good session on the nets. We are actually blissful that he’s again,” Rahane stated.
