India dug a ‘pit’ for itself in Nagpur, Team India in trouble, Pathan said – Australia’s work is done

New Delhi. The first match of the Test series being played between India and Australia is progressing with a bang. The 4-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy started in the Nagpur Test. Australia won the toss and elected to bat first and were bowled out for just 177 runs in the first innings in front of India’s spin attack. Ravindra Jedja, returning from injury, took 5 wickets, while R Ashwin dismissed 3 batsmen.

The entire world is watching the Nagpur Test. Before the start of this match, the Australian media created so much ruckus about the pitch that it started talking everywhere. Australia’s first innings was reduced to just 177 runs on the first day of the match and Indian spinners took 8 wickets but no such ghost was seen in the pitch. What the Australian media said about the turn of the pitch proved to be completely false.

After Australia’s innings was reduced on the first day, when India’s opening pair was batting, then former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan showed very important figures. He said, Australia’s media has a habit of exaggerating, in that too it always focuses on negative things only. There was no such special spinner in this pitch of Nagpur, about which a hue and cry was made. Out of all the Test matches played in the past, the lowest turn is on this pitch. If you look at the figures then New Zealand. The turn in Sri Lanka and Pakistan is more than this. Indian bowlers have got wickets because of their excellent bowling and hard work.

It will be difficult for India

Talking about the pitch, Irfan Pathan said, see here the pitch is going to be the same for both India and Australia. For the Indian team, this is going to prove to be an even more difficult pitch because here India has to come down to bat in the last innings. So in a way, India has made it more difficult for itself here.
