By Khurram Habib Ahmedabad, March 2 : England opening batsman Zak Crawley, who was the lone positive in England batting line-up in the third Test with a half-century in the first innings, says that India can’t be faulted if they dish out another turner.
The 23-year-old batsman, however, added that batting on a turner against the red ball will be much easier but England will have to be proactive in their approach.
“If the pitch looks like it’s going to be just as tricky and plays the same way, with one skidding and one turning, then perhaps we need to be a bit more proactive,” he said on Tuesday.
“If it is the same pitch, I think it will be slightly easier. I feel the pink ball was a bit harder — it skidded on quite quickly, which is why Axar Patel got so many wickets, lbw and bowled.” The opening batsman, who missed the first two Tests after getting injured ahead of the first two Tests after slipping while walking on the marble floor with spikes on at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai, said that England are expecting the pitch to be a turner.
“I think it (the pitch for fourth Test) will be a very similar pitch this week and why wouldn’t it be. They played very well in the last two pitches that turned,” he added.
