“I can’t see India not producing bunsens [spinning pitches], especially after the recent comments from Rohit [Sharma],” Patel stated.
The five-match Test series between the Indian squad and England is scheduled to start on January 25. India, led by Rohit Sharma, will enter the series having drawn the two-game Test series against South Africa. Following the series’ end, Sharma’s remarks on the surface following the second Test generated headlines.
Due to the dire state of the pitch, the second Test between India and the Proteas would conclude in just two days. Rohit took aim at the naysayers who frequently examine the subcontinent surfaces that are favourable to spinners. Instead of complaining about the pitch, the captain said the sides should try to play their best.
Jeetan Patel, England’s bowling coach, predicted that their series against India would go south in the same remarks. According to Patel, they have set up a number of circuits in Abu Dhabi to better prepare them to face India.
