Karachi: In the first tryout match played in Chennai, the strong India side were badly beaten by England on their own soil. England (Team India) beat India (Team India) by 227 points on the rotating Chennai pitch, after which cricket giants around the world question Virat Kohli’s team.
Former Pakistani captain Ramiz Raja has tightened up on the Indian squad and said if they build an arena instead of the pitch they will have to play with fire. Rameez Raja said on his YouTube channel: “ If India is playing an arena instead of a pitch, the draw must also be ready to lose. It’s like playing with fire.

Ramiz Raja mocked the Chennai pitch saying, “ It was the Chennai fifth day pitch, it looked like there was a riot of wrestlers there. Seeing the Chennai pitch, it was as if it was exactly like the arena. India took a huge risk.
According to Ramiz Raja, Team India took England lightly. Rameez Raja said: “ India would have thought if we won the draw we would be able to fist the game but England won the draw and what a great batsman. England was already well prepared. Prior to the India tour, he won the 2–0 test series in Sri Lanka. England captain Joe Root is also in good shape.
Rameez Raja said: “England had a mountain score in the opening innings and then India was excluded from the game. Rameez Raja’s supposed English spinners were bowlers with less experience than Indian Ravichandran Ashwin, but due to the terrain he became even more dangerous. Let me tell you that Jack Leach took 6 wickets for England in the Chennai test and Dominic Bess took 5 wickets. The second test match between India and England will be played in Chennai from February 13.
