Indian Test team vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has given a big statement before the fourth Test (India vs England). He said that like the second and third Test, the pitch of the fourth test will also help spin giants. The third Test played in Motera Test was over in two days.
After this, many big players criticized the BCCI for the pitch. The fourth Test is also to be played on this ground. Team India is ahead 2–1 in the four-match series. The fourth test is to begin on March 4.
Ajinkya Rahane said, ‘I think the pitch will be similar to the second Test match played in Chennai. Spinners will help. The pink ball made a difference, as it was coming faster than the red ball. We have to reconcile with it. This pitch will be like the last two matches. “Regarding going to the question on the pitch of the third Test, Rahane said,” Let the people say what they are saying. When we go on a foreign tour, no one says anything about the pitch to help the fast bowlers.
Then they talk about the technique of Indian batsmen. I don’t think it needs to be taken seriously. “He said that when you play on a pitch that is helpful to spinners, you have to play according to the direction of the ball. If the ball is spinning more then you do not need to think much. Ajinkya Rahane said, “This pitch looks the same, but we still have to see how it behaves.” We respect England as a team. They played well in the first Test and we were better in the subsequent two matches.
Ishant rightly said – winning the World Test Championship is like a World Cup title
Ajinkya Rahane supported the fast bowler Ishant Sharma, in which he compared the World Test Championship and the World Cup. He said that winning the World Test Championship is like winning the World Cup. We are all focused on that. But right now our focus is only on the fourth test.
