Ahmedabad: Former England cricketers, who have consistently criticized the pitch in the Test series against India, have finally admitted that the lack is not in the pitch but in the technique of their batsmen. Former England captain Andrew Strauss said, ‘You can say anything about the pitch and the ball or anything else, but you have to find a way to score runs in the first innings and they don’t last long. Get it.
British turn on pitch dispute
Andrew Strauss said, ‘The truth should not be hidden. It is clear that England’s batting has not been good. Strauss feels that the England batsman has lost the battle in his mind, because he is making the same mistake that he made in the first two Tests.
Strauss said, ‘England is making the same mistake that they have been doing throughout the series. The ball which is not taking turn is also bothering them.
Michael Vaughan was also tight
Let us know that earlier the former captain of the English cricket team, Michael Vaughan, wrote on his Twitter account, England’s batting so far is much worse than the last few Tests. This pitch is the perfect surface to score big in the first innings. No spin, the ball is coming on the bat, the worst batting ever.
England team reduced to 205 runs
England’s first innings was reduced to 205 runs. Ben Stokes scored 55 runs, apart from him no other English batsmen scored a half-century. Axar Patel (4), Ravichanran Ashwin (3), Mohammad Siraj (2) and Washington Sundar (1) took their wickets.
