No point blaming the batsman, its just a terrible terrible terrible pitch

Recommended Posts

When the Adelaide pink ball test got over within two and a half days there was absolutely no talk of the pitch being poor. Everyone was going gaga over the Aussie pace attack and lambasting the batsmen. 

 

Why are they outraging now? Most batsmen fell to straight deliveries in this test rather than grubbers. 

 

I bet no one would have minded if it were the pacers taking those wickets.

Really ? Adelaide wicket was nowhere near bad, there was almost nothing extra ordinary happening on the wicket. It was absolutely terrible batting by India in one session and also some really bad luck as there were very few play and misses, every one kept edging and edges carried to fielders.

blame the ball on most of the dismissals.there was no need to increase the seam for the pink SG ball.even bowlers didnt know which ball will skid through  as it happens when it lands on the seam.

Adelaide was a great pitch man..  It always happens like that there in D/N game.  It all came down to 11 RHB keep nicking everything..  Bowlers bowled on one spot.  Poor planning & terrible luck both came together.

Atleast he aint a part timer, he is useful bowler who ll be handy in england also. I think he bowled decently in uae to. Root is a part timer who took a fifer. 

 

that was more due to india playing him poorly than root actually being effective. we saw how he got battered in the last innings.

I never said it was bad. Just pointing the blatant hypocrisy when it comes to rating low scoring matches on spinning tracks as compared to seaming tracks.

No he wud hve ran through any order here. On such pitches such bowlers become dangerous . Its like give binny a damp pitch and he to was not a part timer. I remeber even elgar cozed us trouble on those pitches in 2015 series
