Rohit Sharma ‘wondering’ what pitch would be like for 4th Test vs England

Written by Vishwas Gupta

India opener Rohit Sharma has come up with a cheeky Instagram post amid all the noise over the pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium as the Motera track received a lot of flak after the pink ball Test ended within two days.

Rohit Sharma, who recently defended Ahmedabad’s spin-friendly pitch, posted a photo of himself in training gear and captioned it: “Wondering what would be the pitch like for 4th test”.

With India 2-1 up in the four-Test series and needing a draw to qualify for the World Test Championship final at Lord’s from June 18-22, another turner is currently out of the question as the home team will be aiming to take minimal risks as far as the track is concerned

Earlier, Rohit Sharma had said that there were no real demons on it and batsmen from both sides made mistakes that led to an incredibly early finish. Rohit’s comments had come after India wrapped up the 3rd Test by 10 wickets and went 2-1 up in the 4-Test series.

“To be honest, on a pitch like that.. the pitch didn’t do anything. If I can recollect, most of the batsmen got out to straighter deliveries. Not just them, we, as a batting unit, made a lot of mistakes. We didn’t bat well in the first innings. The pitch had nothing as such, no such demons as we call. It was a nice pitch to bat on, once you’re in, you can score runs as well,” Rohit said during a virtual press conference.
