A win in the second Test for India will almost certain them a WTC final berth, and this is something they would be looking forward to. In this post, we will be discussing Delhi pitch record for second Border Gavaskar Trophy Test.
Delhi Pitch Report
India and Australia have locked horn against each other at the Arun Jaitley stadium 7 times in Test matches. India has managed 3 wins, whereas, Australia have won only a solitary game and three matches have been drawn. The surface here has historically assisted the batters in the opening two days. However, on day 3 like most venues in the subcontinent, the surface assists the spinners.
The Delhi pitch report suggests that the bounce here on the wicket is comparatively less than other wickets in India. Therefore, batters will have to be watchful with the low bounce. In the above image, one can easily see how dry the wicket looks. Rough patches on the bowler’s follow through can be seen which will surely be exploited by the spinners.
As soon as the pitch got revealed, fans have already started posting their verdict and hilarious memes on Social media. Check a few of them below,
