While players are struggling to make headlines with their performance during the ongoing Border-Gavaskar trophy, the pitch is filling the void by emerging as a hot topic. Ever since Australia took the flight for the four-match Test series in India, the Australian media and its cricket fraternity have started discussing the possibility of the pitches in India.

But Indore pitch could not ignore the headlines as it eventually received three demerit points from ICC and was rated ‘poor’ for being too friendly for spinners. While the pitch remains the centre of attraction during the highly anticipated Test series between top-two quality sides, now pictures of the Ahmedabad pitch are going viral on the internet.
In the viral picture, two pitches are seen covered with white strips making it difficult for everyone to anticipate what would be the nature of that surface. However, it is yet another confirmed which surface will be used for the fourth and final match. Check out the viral pictures and reaction to it.
