Ahmedabad: In the day and night test match against England at Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera, the Indian team forced the entire England team to kneel down. Indian team spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel let the English team down like cards.
Debate on Motera’s pitch
England were eliminated for 112 and 81 in both sets and India won the match by 10 wickets. After this victory for Team India, questions began to arise on the pitch. While a team defends the field against India, on the other hand, the former players criticized the field. Now Root has made a big statement on the pitch as well.
The course that spoke of the terrain
England captain Joe Root believes that it is not for the players but for the International Cricket Council (ICC) to decide whether Motera’s ground is good for Test cricket.
But Root (Joe Root) didn’t see fit to blame the field for it. He said, however, that the ICC should consider a breeding ground for the cricket test.

Root (Joe Root) said, “I think this ground was pretty tough. It was extremely difficult to beat. The players will not decide whether it suits the game or not. It is the job of the ICC ”.
Root (Joe Root) said: “As a player we have to do our best in all circumstances”.
Virat found no gaps in the field
Virat Kohli said there was no fault on the pitch, at least in the opening innings it was not and only the ball was spinning. Defending the court, the Indian captain said: “To be honest I don’t think the hitting level was good. Our score was 100 races for 3 wickets at a time and we were fired for less than 150 races. Only one ball took a turn and in the first innings it was a good wicket for the bat.
Rohit defended the field
After the match was over, Rohit Sharma told the virtual conference: “ When you play on such a pitch you should have passion and you should also try to score points. You can’t just block. As you saw that a ball was also taking a turn, and when you were playing for the turn, a ball also “slipped” (slid) towards the stump.
