The pitch was undeniably way way below whats acceptable, but that was pathetic from England.

Poor team selection - 3 seam bowlers + Stokes and only one recognised spinner, Archer batting at eight. How many England batsmen got out with straight on deliveries ? Bad batting and they capitulated. Bairstow should not be in at number 3, and i suspect he may not be playing Test Match cricket for too much longer - keep him for T20/One day. England should know now what pitches will be prepared for the rest of the series - the BCCI should be ashamed -  "Anything to win India" - its not like they need any advantage really is it?

I missed that - what is the difference?

I know there’s a difference between a Kookaburra and a Duke but surely  a cricket ball of the same makes is a cricket ball and colour irrelevant? 

To make the pink ball they have to apply extra lacquer to it, this means when the ball lands on one of its sides it skids more/quicker/longer than the red ball which has worn away, could explain some of the straight non turning LBW's if the batters are also being rushed into shots and the get made fools of the ones which grip and turn and are a bit slower.

I caught a bit of this. Something to do with different coating on the pink ball and the amount of time it stays quite shiny, making it skid on quite a lot when the shiny part rather than the seam hits the ground.

Shows how much I know - I assumed that the leather was dyed to the appropriate colour prior to producing the ball.

Take away how it was intended as that’s obvious

banter or disrespectful? Swap it being a male player tweeting about the women’s team and I can’t see it going down to well whereas if this hadn’t been called out no one would have noticed

People would be calling for Burns to be dropped.

Clearly a joke that Burns has taken the wrong way, however imagine the meltdown if it was the other way round, Twitter would be demanding he never plays again. 

Precisely my interpretation - AH is taking the (friendly) piss out of her fellow England cricketer.

For what it is worth, I considered her comment quite funny, and it is perhaps unfortunatet that RB could not have retorted with a witty comment of his own.

On another subject, I am just hearing that Ashwin has got his 400th wicket in just 77 Tests.

I thought he had been around for years.

I wonder how many were taken on pitches like that

Burns a little bit tender after being dropped for the 3rd test after only 58 runs in 4 innings in 2 test matches.  Can't take the banter!

Root a part time spinner, took five wickets. Truth is the pitch was a disgrace, should be officially called and and given demerit points. This was not a test pitch, the whole match lasted just four sessions.

Absolutely right. Can test countries be awarded demerit point tho? Surely India will say that as the home team they produced wickets that suite their strengths

How much of an advantage do they want to give themselves? They have betters spinners, and their batsmen play spin better. They have truly world class players. Its so much in their favour anyway, that to produce a pitch like that is akin to match fixing

Judging by this pitch, they might produce a wicket that sees a side all out in the 12th over of a forthcoming T20. 

On another topic, I have this nagging feeling well see Anderson and Broad lining up v Australia in the Ashes down under....

Yes I believe they can happened to SA 2019. The site of sweeping the crease area into a dustpan was shocking. They have a wonderful stadium and a farcical pitch, shameless by India, needs investigating.

I agree but every test playing nations do something similar..

That said this pitch was virtually impossible to bat on, both Cook and Strauss said that but stayed short of actually accusing India of any wrongdoing.

Test match wickets should be prepared to off equal help to both the bowlers and the batsman and why they’re called Test matches and that was definitely not the case here.

Yes the idea is have a pitch that helps seamers, pace, initially, and then spin on about the third or fifth day, not the first session. That was never a test match pitch. Would have been better on coconut matting.

Reading the BBC cricket site all the writers are up in arms about the wicket. Agnew bemoaning that showing live test cricket on free to air was poor viewing in a time when the cricket profile needs uplifting

Teams can deducted points for preparing a pitch that doesn’t last but the ICC are sitting on their hands..

I would provide a link but I can’t get it to work!

What amazes me is the lack of còment from the English camp, maybe because it's India and the volatile nature over there they are being quiet, however something needs to be done for the sake of Test Match cricket. Not everyone appreciates limited over cricket IPL, and now the ridiculous 100, 5 day tests will be a thing of the past unless we stamp out this cheating.

Wouldn't mind seeing a slow-mo of that Bairstow LBW to see if the ball deviated much off his leg/pad as the ball went over the stumps but apparently clipping on ball tracking.
