On Sunday, India captain Hardik Pandya criticized the quality of the pitches used in the current series against New Zealand, Describing the Ekana Cricket Stadium pitch as a “shocker.”
Paras Mhambrey, India’s bowling coach, stated that the curator is the “right person” to describe the prepared track for the second Twenty20 International against New Zealand.
On Sunday, India captain Hardik Pandya criticized the quality of the pitches used in the current series against New Zealand, describing the Ekana Cricket Stadium pitch as a “shocker.”
The first Twenty20 International was played in Ranchi, and on Sunday, New Zealand was held to 99 for 8. With only one ball left, India pursued the target.
“The curator ought to respond to that pitch-related question. However, we were certain that it would be a significant challenge, and fortunately, we controlled the game.
Anything between 120 and 130 would have been extremely difficult. In the press conference that followed the match,
Mhambrey stated, “We did well to restrict them to 99, and it was an achievable target.”
Mhambrey added that the wicket appeared difficult from the start.
When we first saw the wicket, we knew it was on the dry side. The middle was partially covered in grass, but neither the middle nor the ends were. When we arrived yesterday, it appeared to turn, so we knew it would be difficult,” he stated.
In the second match, the former Mumbai seamer praised the bowlers for their excellent work.
Yuzvendra Chahal, who scored figures of 2-1-4-1, replaced India’s tearaway pacer Umran Malik with an additional spinner.
In Washington, Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, and Deepak Hooda, the other three spinners, each took one wicket while bowling effectively.
He claimed that Chahal bowled during the powerplay because a right-hander was batting on a wicket that was turning at the time.
Chahal was included because we believed having an additional spinner would be beneficial. It really worked because he bowled well for us.
“You base your decisions on what you perceive and how you feel.” There was a right-hander batting and turning.
So Hardik might have reasoned that a leg spinner would be useful. Mhambrey speculated, “Perhaps that’s why he bowled in the powerplay.
