Ind vs Eng: Ahmedabad’s threatening pitch fails for run-scoring

Ind vs Eng: Joe Root makes a world record on threatening Ahmedabad pitch

Ind vs Eng: Joe Root makes a world record on threatening Ahmedabad pitch

Joe Root? Too good with the bat in Tests but now with the bowl. The Narendra Modi Stadium has turned the slabs giving a pile of wickets to many but not the runs – a poor pitch.

The inaugural match being held at Ahmedabad is giving massive suffers to the batters. The threatening pitch completely favors the bowling line-up and is not a batting track at all.

The guests were first bowled out on 112 in their first innings – it was more like a T20 game winded up even earlier. The show did not favor India either as they were wicketless on 145 in their 1st innings.

Joe Root was the spotlight of the show as he grabbed five wickets conceding minimum runs by any spinner. 5/8, that too against India, the pitch is being funny.

He has made several records as he is the only English captain with fantastic figures since Bob Willis’ 5-35 against New Zealand in 1983. Joe is now the only cricket player with minimum runs that too with a five-wicket haul.

The world agrees that Root is a world-class player when it comes to batting but with the bowl, that too against India?? No!

The home bowlers dived Ahmedabad’s pitch threatening England on 81 – what is happening at Motera?

Have a look at dominant bowlers in 1st innings for each team:

India England
Axar Patel (6 wickets, economy 1.75) Jack Lech (4 wickets, economy, 2.70)
Ravichandran Ashwin (3 wickets, economy, 1.63) Joe Root (5 wickets, economy, 1.26)

Have a look at dominant bowlers in 2nd innings for each team:

Ravichandran Ashwin: 4 wickets, economy, 3.20

Patel’s 11 wickets conceding 73 runs is yet another explosive record to remark. Ashwin ended with 74 runs plucking 7 wickets.
