Why is there a dispute on the pitch?
Criticism of the pitch of the Narendra Modi Stadium started after the third Test between India and England (IND vs ENG) ended. England and many legends around the world believe that the Modi Stadium pitch was not good for Test cricket. The list includes former England captain Michael Vaughan, David Lloyd, Yuvraj Singh, Inzamam-ul-Haq. In fact, India defeated England by 10 wickets in two days in the third Test, after which the pitch was criticized.
England kneeled before Ashwin and Akshar
In the third Test, England’s team failed to play India’s spin bowling. India’s spin duo Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin (R Ashwin) took 18 of England’s 20 wickets in this match. Akshar took 11 wickets in this match, while Ashwin dismissed 7 English batsmen. England lost the match before the end of the second day.
