The South African team toured India in the year 2019. At that time, the captain of the Indian team was Virat Kohli. In fact, Virat Kohli gave a suggestion during the series against South Africa. He had said that the Test matches should be staged at only five pitches in India. According to the former Indian captain, five great fields in India should be selected, where the test matches can be staged. However, the third match of the India-Australia series was to be held in Dharamshala, but Indore was selected at the last moment. Namely, the third test match of the series between India and Australia will be played in Indore.
Rohit Sharma has given statements before the Indore Test. Actually India team captain Rohit Sharma disagrees with ex-captain Virat Kohli’s suggestion to try cricket on just 5 reasons. Rohit Sharma believes that if Test cricket is played on only five grounds in the country then cricket will not be promoted so Test cricket should be played on different grounds in the country. He said that if you really want to promote test cricket then it should be played on different grounds in the country and not on some selected grounds… If this happens then the reach of cricket will be limited.
Significantly, the third Test match between India and Australia will be played in Indore. At present, the Indian team has a 2-0 lead in the series. The third Test will be played in Indore from Wednesday. The Indian team would like to consolidate their lead in the series, while the Australian team will touch down with the intention of returning to the series. India defeated the Australian team by an innings and 132 runs in the Nagpur Test, while they defeated the Kangaroos by 6 wickets in the Delhi Test.
