India vs West Indies 2nd Test: Indian cricket team’s bowling coach Paras Mhambrey has targeted West Indies’ batsmen for their defensive game in the second Test. Along with this, he also raised questions on the pitch. Let us know what he said.
Bowling coach Paras Mhambrey termed the pitch being used for the second Test as too slow for batting. Along with this, he also criticized the West Indies batsmen for not even trying to play the shot.
West Indies are currently trailing 0-1 in the two-match series. He did not make any special efforts to score runs on the third day in response to India’s 438 runs in the second Test. By the end of the third day’s play, the Caribbean team had scored 229 runs for five wickets and is 209 runs behind India.
Mhambrey said at the press conference after the end of the third day’s play, “The pitch is very slow and very easy to bat on. By the end of the day’s play, it had started to turn a bit. West Indies adopted a very defensive approach in batting. When the batsman tries to play the shot, there is also a chance to take a wicket, but they did not make such an effort.”
He further said, “Our bowlers performed impressively. They took advantage of whatever opportunities they got. The pitch should be lively. There should be balance for the batsmen and the bowlers. The pitch in Dominica had turn, but we made good use of the conditions. It will be difficult to take 20 wickets on this pitch though.”
The Indian bowling coach expressed satisfaction with the performance of fast bowler Mukesh Kumar, playing his first Test match, who took his first wicket in the form of Kirk McKenzie.
Mhambrey said, “I am very happy with the progress he showed after taking the first ball in the first session. In the second session he moved the ball a bit. It was a really good effort.”
