It has been less than three days since the conclusion of another Border-Gavaskar Trophy game took place. After Australia dominated India during the third Test on Friday, it was India’s turn to experience defeat this time. India was captained by Rohit Sharma. Although Delhi and Nagpur’s surfaces also garnered attention, Indore’s received the greatest criticism. For the first 30 minutes, the hitters had a more difficult task since the ball was spinning fiercely and bouncing unevenly.
Former cricketers Dilip Vengsarkar, Matthew Hayden, and Mark Waugh were among those who believed the ground was unsuitable for Test cricket. The third time in a row, the game was over in three days.
Rohit Sharma said, "why do people ask about the pitches so much in India? Why not ask me how well Nathan Lyon bowled, how well Pujara and Khawaja played. We focus too much on pitches".

“I don’t believe former cricket players ever played on fields like these. I honestly don’t know, so. As I have stated, these are the kinds of fields we want to play on. Our strength lies in this. So you always play to your strengths when you are at home and don’t bother about what people are saying, Rohit Sharma remarked at a press conference following the game.
Rohit Sharma on the Indore wicket: “We decide at the start of the series on what kind of wickets we want to play. It was a call taken by one and all. We are aware of the challenges that we can face on these kind of wickets, and we are ready for it.” #INDvAUS #IndvsAus

“Our batting depth and spin bowling are our strengths. When we go abroad, other teams use home advantage. Why is that a problem? particularly when we are seeing results.
I would believe otherwise if we weren’t seeing the desired effects. Results are being obtained. Even though some batters are under pressure, it’s okay. Everyone of your team members cannot be in a top form. Few may experience a difficult period, but that is acceptable, added Rohit, who vehemently supported the team’s strategy.
