“I didn’t expect the pitch from the second day itself…” the Indian coach made a big statement on the Ranchi wicket

The fourth match of the five-match Test series will be played between India and England in Ranchi. Since the second day of this Test, the spinners have been getting help from the pitch. However, India’s bowling coach Paras Mhambrey says the pitch here was not helpful in grading gymnasts or spinners.

In the Ranchi Test, England scored 353 runs in the first innings. In response, Team India had lost seven wickets for 219 runs at the end of the second day’s play. For England, off-spinner Shoaib Bashir took four wickets for 84 runs.

Paras Mhambrey said after the end of day two of the fourth Test against England: “If you look at the games we have played here before, the wicket slows down as the game goes on. By its nature it slows down. We expected it, but to be honest we didn’t think it would slow down so much from the second day. We didn’t expect such a different increase.”

Mhambrey further said: “I wouldn’t call him a ‘rank spinner’ at the moment because the bounce is low, which makes batting a bit difficult. I don’t think many balls spun quickly or were difficult to play.”

The bowling coach said that the team management had no role in preparing the pitch as it was the responsibility of the local association. He said: “Firstly, we have no control over the venue. The nature of the wicket here is always like that, never a ‘rank spinner’. That’s the nature of the playing field. Our team didn’t take a number.” Specific instructions were given that we wanted to play “Rank Turner.” Certainly the soil here is different than in Rajkot.”
