Don’t believe in the hype around pitches in India: Kasprowicz
Melbourne: Former pacer Michael Kasprowicz doesn’t understand why so much attention is being given to the pitches in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar trophy as they are “typical” Indian wickets, on which, Australia need to “adapt and adjust”.
“I don’t believe the hype I reckon because for all the attention around the pitches they were typically Indian wickets,” Kasprowicz, one of the architects of Australia’s first Test win in India in 29 years, told The Age.
“I realise this last one in Indore did a few tricks early on, but because they’re starting so early (9.30am), maybe that little bit of moisture helps grab the ball. But at other stages later in the day, it wasn’t doing anything like that.” India had won the first two Tests in Nagpur and New Delhi where the pitches got “average” rating by the ICC. The pitch in Indore was rated “poor” as Australia won the game by nine wickets.
