The third match of the India-Australia Test series will be played at Holkar Stadium in Indore. This match between both teams will be played from March 1. However, an uproar has started regarding the release of Indore. In fact, some images are going viral on social media, based on which the pitch of Holkar Stadium is said to be made of red dirt, while a part of the pitch is made of black dirt. Fans are constantly giving their thoughts on the field on social media.
Actually, it is believed that if a pitch is prepared with red earth, light grass is left on it. The rebound and speed can be seen in this type of wicket. On the other hand, if the pitch is black earth, things are different. The ball stops on a black dirt field and the roulette ball spins a lot. Significantly, the third match of the 4 Test series between India and Australia will be played at the Holkar Stadium in Indore from Wednesday. At present, the Indian team led by Rohit Sharma leads 2-0 in the series. India defeated Australia in the Nagpur and Delhi Tests.

However, speaking of the Indore field, if the field is made of red earth, then the team that bats first will have an advantage, because the ball will bounce off the fresh field, then the field will be favorable for batting. In this way, the role of the release becomes important. On such pitches, the team that wins the toss would like to bat first. Recently, a roller was run on the Indore court, in addition to this, water was released. However, now it will be interesting to see how the Indore pitch plays out… will the batsmen be able to score easily here or will the pitch help the pitchers?
