New Delhi: As the second test match played in Chennai turns to a thrill, the controversy on the pitch is also increasing. The second game of the four-test series is played at the M. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai and there is a big bend in the field. In response to India’s 329 first inning innings in the match, the England squad was reduced to just 134 points. With whom questions began to arise in the field.
Michael Vaughan raised questions on the pitch
Michael Vaughan tweeted: ‘The way things are fun cricket, but to be honest this ground is shocking. There is no excuse, because India is in a better position, but isn’t that a ground prepared for the fifth day of the test match.
Go maaaaaate! On the last days of the 1st test, the wicket started to explode and no one said a word on the pitch as India didn’t stand a chance. At least that test was the same for both teams from the first ball. Eng played poorly and Rohit, Pant and Jinx showed how to beat. https://t.co/lx31k7BqCl

Shane Warne on the criticism of former England captain Michael Vaughan on the Chepauk pitch for the second test, saying: “When India had no luck, no one had a word on the pitch.”
Sunil Gavaskar goes wild
Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar said of the Star Sports show: “ We saw Rohit score 150 and yesterday he was going to kick close to the ball. Criticizing the field is highly justified. Some people are talking about it, but there is no tailoring in your England. Australia was all out for just 46 races. The ball continues to flutter in the air all the time. Nobody talks about him. We always talk about Indian fields and when the ball starts to turn people start to have problems.
He also said that there are one or two people who are known to dislike India and England. He always comments on India and England, which is good. The former captain said we ignore these people because we know their double standard.
Gavaskar gave an appropriate response
Sunil Gavaskar, referring to the pitch from the first game, said: “He is not fit to play. It’s tough ground and that’s cricket. In the first test, while nothing happened the first two days, people said it was boring, nothing happened. It’s pretty easy to beat here, so it’s important to have a balance in what you’re saying. You can’t complain in the moment. There are people who always complain about it. It is absolutely a difficult window ”.
