Technically speaking, the third Test of the India-England series was supposed to get over on Sunday, February 28, 2021 had the two sides played until the final day of the match. However, a rather disappointing batting display by the England side in both the innings led to their sudden collapse, bringing them defeat in less than two days’ time. View this post on Instagram There exists yet another perception about the Day-Night clash at the newly inaugurated Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad according to which, the reason behind such a short, two-day international Test match was the extremely tricky pitch and its uneven bounce. Following the conclusion of the penultimate match of the series, one of the most important members of the Indian cricket team and Test 2 ‘Man of the Match’ winner Ravichandran Ashwin was questioned by an English journalist about his thoughts on the Motera pitch. The 34-year old Indian cricketer however, thought of responding to the journalist's question with a question of his own. ️ ️ "We have never complained about the pitch in the past."#TeamIndia's ace spinner @ashwinravi99 sets the record straight.@Paytm #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/K2V4OvBQDn — BCCI (@BCCI) February 27, 2021 “I have a question back. What is a good cricket surface? Who defines it,” Ashwin counter-questioned the journalist. “Yes, of course. The bowler wants to win the game. The batsman needs to bat well to get runs. There’s absolutely no question about it. What makes a good surface? Who defines this? Seam on the first day and then bat well and then spin on the last two days? Come on! Who makes all these rules, we need to get over it and not talk about whatever picture you want to paint.” “If you’re asking whether it was a good Test surface, I don’t see any of the players coming from England having an issue with the surface. They want to improve; they look like they want to have a contest. Is it the players and the people who are reporting back that want their players to not compete and complain about the pitches? Because we have never done that on any of the tours,” Ashwin added.

However, it was the way in which he responded to the question that has the fans of the Men in Blue divided in two categories - those who loved what he said and backed up his answer as completely legitimate and those who felt it was more of an escape from a tough situation. ️ ️ "We have never complained about the pitch in the past."#TeamIndia's ace spinner @ashwinravi99 sets the record straight.@Paytm #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/K2V4OvBQDn — BCCI (@BCCI) February 27, 2021i personally like Ashwin's Bold answers like i admire MSD. he clearly telling that indians not complaining about pitches while playing overseas. players need guts to play in india. spinning Land! play with skills — AB (@ImAbsarAli) February 27, 2021Omg , not once have I ever seen anyone complain when the batters gets runs on a batting pitch , whilst everyone seems to lose their minds when bowlers do well. — IRVIN (@Vakil_giri1000) February 27, 2021What is with indian players, they start getting aggressive when they don't have any answers. — Nikhil (@NykhilChopra_) February 27, 2021Absolute B.S reply. A good surface means even bounce on day one. — Shafiq Ahmad (@Akhund_Shafiq) February 27, 2021The question was "do you think that was a good Test match pitch?" Fair question, asked politely. Ash could have given his perspective without flaring up. — The Wag Post (@ManThirteenth) February 27, 2021 View the full article
