At the start of the fourth Test itself, Australia gained momentum against India. At the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Australia posted 255/4 on Day 1 thanks to a brilliant century from opener Usman Khawaja. In addition to Khawaja, all-rounder Cameron Green reached the end of Day 1’s play with 49 runs in just 64 balls. On Day 2, he eventually received the boot after scoring 114 off 170.

Even if the Border-Gavaskar Trophy is about to come to a close, the discussions regarding the pitches have not stopped. Before, the Indore pitch was the subject of attention; today, Ahmedabad’s track is. Notably, the Holkar Stadium’s pitch received a “bad” rating from the International Cricket Council (ICC). Former cricket players have criticized India for creating turning pitches in a last-ditch effort to go to the World Test Championship (WTC) final.

When asked about his thoughts on the matter, former India cricketer Pragyan Ojha noted that the strategy being used by the team is all that adds to the excitement of the match. He believed that playing Test involves adjusting to difficult circumstances that are different from those provided at home.
“What is Test cricket defined as? Your skill, as well as your physical and mental stamina, will be put to the test. The appeal of the home and away series is that visiting someone’s home presents you with a fresh challenge. The difficulties we face when we travel to SENA nations are also different from those faced by those teams when they visit India. According to Ojha, there is some lateral movement and a tiny greener hue to the wickets in SENA nations.

“There is a slight bounce in Australia. The spinners benefit from the track in the subcontinent. While everyone has the choice of playing to their strength, I wouldn’t agree to labeling India desperate in that regard. It’s just a tactic that makes the game more thrilling. I really liked how Rohit Sharma said it: “During a complete five-day Test match, there are many who have complained that the wickets were not good in other nations and it was not delivering any result, so when you get result and see some excitement in the game, that is what you are here for,” he continued.
