Before the four-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy, former Australia wicketkeeper Ian Healy made a controversial statement.
Stating that Australia would win if India provided a “fair pitch” with consistent spin and the ball would not “jump ridiculously and slide down low from day one.”
He had stated that Australia would prevail if India provided a “fair pitch” with consistent spin and the ball not “jumping ridiculously and sliding down low from day one.”
Ashwin posted the following on his YouTube channel as a comment on the same thing: Despite the support staff’s opinions, this viewpoint was ignited by Ian Healy’s quote.
Guys, it’s the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. So, this spark is needed, right? The Australian camp will undoubtedly continue to engage in banter.”
Former India coach Ravi Shastri responded, “I won’t rank turners to be produced,” when asked about the pitches in the India-Australia match.
You are conversing with an Indian who has recently returned from two trips to Australia. From Day 1, I want the ball to turn.
Since Day 1 It’s okay if you lose the toss. You should be able to see the ball turning slightly if you are fielding first. In a mediation made possible by Star Sports.
The official broadcaster of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Ravi Shastri stated, “It’s your strength, capitalize on it.”
Ian Chappell, a former captain of Australia, stated that pitch-in discussions were unnecessary. Pitch pitches are the subject of a lot of gibberish. In some nations.
I think that only the curator or groundsmen should have any say in the pitches that are produced. It is not the responsibility of the coaches, players, or managers.
Your pitch is strong. When some teams win on the fifth day after tea time, according to good curators, that’s a good pitch. I believe that a lot of nonsense is said about pitches.
Much of what Ian Healy noted is based on what Australia has done domestically. They are playing in India rather than at home.
Why would anyone believe that India would not have an advantage going into the game? Added Ian Chappell.
