A turner is expected in Motera, but a captain of India They grow kohli he expects the pacers to play as big a role as the spinners on the third day against the night against England, a country filled with “many weaknesses”, he said.
Both teams have won each game in a series of four games, and before the third test here, which starts on Wednesday, the talks were constantly focused on the nature of the virgin track of the renovated stadium.
Asked if the ball was unlikely to swing much in the third test, Collie said he expected the rhythms to be in play until the ball became “nice and shiny.”
“I don’t think this is an accurate estimate (this cup will not swing). The pink ball tends to swing much more than the red ball. We experienced this when we played for the first time in 2019 (against Bangladesh),” he said. Cars at the pre-match press conference.
Collie also rejected the assessment that England would have an advantage if the terrain favored the pacers. “… we didn’t worry about the strengths and weaknesses of the English team. We also beat them at home, where the ball makes more way and keeps them every time so we don’t worry about it. It’s just playing well as a team.” , he said.
“And yes, there are many, many weaknesses in the opposition, if you want to exploit them. If this is a suitable track for sailors for them, it is for us.
“And we probably have, you know, among the other teams, the best bowling attack in the world, so we don’t really care what the ball can bring to the table in a different way. We’re ready for anything we can get our hands on.” he said.
Both teams enter the game with many unknowns. It is known that the pink ball helps the rhythm, but we have yet to see how much it will help the spinners, which is considered to be the strength of India at home.
Senior Indian batsman Rohit Sharma he has already said that this will be another turn. Collie said that facing the pink ball is more challenging than the red ball, regardless of the nature of the surface.
“It’s much more challenging to play with a pink ball, no matter what pitch you’re playing on. Especially in the evening, if as a wadding team you start your inning under the lights, then this hour and a half is very challenging,” he said.
“Yes, spin will come into play for sure, but I don’t think the new ball and fast bowling can be ignored. The pink ball brings them into the game while the ball is nice and shiny, something we know very well when preparing accordingly.” added Cars.
