Ep. 159: India Spin it to Win it (as England Burn Against Turn)
Play • 58 min

DJ is joined by Varun and Ashwin to wrap the third test match of the series against England at Ahmedabad. We focus on the importance of the toss, team selection errors, umpiring and of course we answer all the important questions about the pitch including:

Are two day tests a good look for test cricket?
Is England’s batting up to test standard?
Is India killing test cricket with its pitches?
Double standards on seaming against spinning pitches?
Does this pitch chatter devalue spinners’ wickets
How much did the pink ball affect the third test?
What rating should the Ahmedabad pitch get?

We pick Axar Patel’s 11-for as our CEAT gripping performance of the week and Joe Root wins our CEAT SecuraDrive player of the week for the second time for his controlled spell of 5 for 8.
