Following India’s dominant 10-wicket win over England in Ahmedabad inside two-days, questions were raised of the pitch at which the game was played. Several former cricketers and cricket experts expressed their view on the same with legendary Yuvraj Singh wondering if a Test match, which is supposed to last 5 days, ending in a couple of days is good for the game.
Yuvi further said that had the spin duo of Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh played on such pitches, they would have ended up with 1000 and 800 wickets respectively. The southpaw, however, congratulated Axar for his Player of the Match performance at the Narendra Modi Stadium, scalping 11 wickets in the match. In addition, the ICC 2011 World Cup’s player of the tournament also congratulated R Ashwin for reaching the 400 Test wicket milestone in his 77th Test and Ishant Sharma for 100 Test caps for the country.
Yuvraj’s post has gone viral on the internet with it already receiving over 53K likes and over 4300 retweets. Some netizens also made interesting comments on the post.
“If @MdShami11 and @ImIshant were born in England they would be sitting on a 400 and 600,” said one Twitter user.
“According to your logic, if Kohli and Smith batted on the pitches where Bhajji and Kumble bowled, he would have had more test hundreds than Sachin?,” said another.
Hope you will accept ashwin is better bowler in SENA conditions than the two legends…he has showed better consistency in those tough conditions…Last, pl appreciate the fellow team mates, rather than taking jibe and sides like othe petty fans…!!! @bhogleharsha@sumanthraman
