After India’s horrendous loss to Australia in the first Test at Pune in the high-octane 4-match Test series, the pitch of Pune has come under a lot of flak from all corners. Lately, the match referee also touted it as a pitch which is not fit to host a game, a big setback to the MCA officials for sure.
Now, India already find themselves in a position where they are trailing in the Border-Gavaskar trophy. Now, all eyes will be on the Chinnaswamy pitch, the players, team staff and everybody will want to have a close look at the pitch. The teams will surely plan accordingly, the toss comes into play as well. In the last game, the flick of the coin decided the outcome of the match in a way.
Virat Kohli, recently took time off and went trekking with his friends up in the hills, just to unwind and stay away from the media attacks. Not bad, one may say, Virat Kohli has also vouched to bounce back in the second Test and hence pitch will be at the centre of attraction.
In the first image of the ground, it looks bright, the weather looks pleasant as expected when you come to Bengaluru and the pitch is far away at a distance, hence we cannot misinform about the pitch.
The Chinnaswamy pitch is historically a typical Indian pitch which favours the batsman and has something for the swing bowlers early on in the piece. It also has a fast outfield, which means not a lot of threes will be on offer.
