Spin on Pitch During IPL 2018:
During the IPL, a lot of spins was found on the Bangalore’s pitch. If the pitch spin in this match helps the bowlers, then this Afghan team can be a sign of danger for India. Everyone knows that Afghanistan has more than one spin bowlers. The Afghan spin bowlers also troubled all the batsmen in the IPL.
Afghanistan has bowlers like Rashid Khan and Mujib ur Rehman. In such a situation, if the pitch proved to be helpful for the spin bowlers then the problems for India could increase.
Former Indian player Lalchand Rajput also warned the Indian team management that the turning pitch in Bengaluru could not be made ready.
It’s noteworthy that Team India’s Regular captain Virat Kohli is not playing in this Historic Test. Ajinkya Rahane will lead the team in his absence.
