Vikram Rathour, the Indian batting coach, commented on the pitch at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore during the third Test match between India and Australia, which started on March 1. After winning the toss, the Indian team came out to bat first and got all out for just 109 runs in the first innings due to a lot of turn in the pitch on the first day itself. Rathour said that it was more than expected.
Rathour further added that playing on a turning track is India’s strength, and it is where they belong. He also mentioned that the pitch curators had very little time to prepare the pitch, as the third Test match was earlier scheduled to be held in Dharamshala but was later shifted to Indore.
On the first day, Australia dominated the game and all-out India for 109 runs, and at the end of the day, put 156 runs on the board at the loss of 4 wickets while batting.
