Ian Chappell: Furious on Indore pitch after India’s defeat

After dominating their opponents in every facet of the game, the Australian side finished off a convincing victory in the third Test in Indore. Ian Chappell, a former Australian captain, complained about the twisting track set up for the Indore Test, reminding India of their recent victory over Australia in two series.

Australia quickly overtook India’s total, despite an early hiccup in the morning session of the third day, owing to an explosive knock from opener Travis Head. Ian Chappell, a former Australian cricketer, was quick to criticise Australia for their bad choice to omit the southpaw from the opening Test of the series.

The former Australian captain was unhappy with the Indore surface and said India did not need to practise rank turners since they had already won.back-to-back Australia’s test series is taking place on wholly different grounds. He also criticised the players’ and management’s contributions to the field of play.

That was absurd (on dropping Head in Nagpur Test). It was ignorance by non-selection. At least the Australians have realised their mistakes. India needs to realise its mistakes. attempting to craft pitches that are appropriate for India. Have the Indians lost sight of their victories in the most recent Test series in Australia? What in the world were the curator, the administrators, the players, the coaches, and everyone else doing? Why in the world are they contributing to the pitch? said ESPNCricinfo Chappell.

The key, in my opinion, was cheaply bowling out India in the first innings.Chappell, in innings
After reflecting on the game, Chappell believed that India’s failure to bat in the first innings was the crucial turning point in the Test match. Australia’s tenacious batting effort in their first innings gave the visitors a good lead and made their fourth-inning objective manageable.

I believe the key to it was cheaply bowling out India in the first innings. Once they had done that, they had a chance to take a good lead. On this pitch, it was not a massive lead, but it was still quite helpful. And only having to chase a small score in the second inning,” he continued.
