India vs England 2021, 3rd Test: Pitch Report
Sardar Patel Stadium (Motera, Ahmedabad) will host this day/night pink-ball Test match between India and England. After November 2014, it is going to be the first international match at this venue.
This venue is going to host the first Test match since November 2012, when India and England faced each other during a Test series opener and the hosts won that match by 9 wickets. In the history of Test cricket, this venue generally brought the typical Asian pitches, where batsmen enjoyed the initial period of the Test match before spinners play their crucial roles to dominate the game. However, pacers have also some good records at this venue, including Kapil Dev’s famous nine-wicket haul in an innings.
It is going to be interesting how the day/night pink-ball Test match goes on at re-build Sardar Patel Stadium (Motera, Ahmedabad). While we recently saw the green-covered picture of the Motera pitch, where the teams will play the day/night Test match, most of grasses have been cut later.
