The scene seen on the second day of the India-England Test match being played at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi has put the pitch of this ground into question. Before this match there was not much talk about the pitch in the last 3 matches of the series but the Ranchi Stadium pitch has been in the headlines since the first day due to its uneven behavior and after that the condition of Team India on the second day of the match. The Indian camp itself is shocked and upset. Team India, struggling in the first innings against England, admitted that they did not expect the pitch to turn so much from the second day.

On the first day of this match, which started on Friday, 'un-even bounce' i.e. uneven bounce from the pitch was the center of discussion. England's batsmen had to contend with it all day. However, the turn on the pitch was not that much at that time, which was seen on the second day and it put the Indian batsmen in trouble. On the second day, Team India lost 7 wickets in their first innings, 6 of which were taken by England's two young spinners, Shoaib Bashir and Tom Hartley.

Indian coaches are making excuses about the pitch?

Team India's young batsmen were also seen struggling with spin and low bounce, in which they failed. In such a situation, this pitch has come under doubt as to whether this pitch is a 'rank turner' i.e. a pitch that takes a lot of turns right from the start. Although Team India's bowling coach Paras Mahambre disagrees, he believes that the pitch is spinning more than he expected. After the second day's play, the Indian coach said that it would be wrong to call this pitch a rank turner, but he did not expect the pitch to turn so much and bounce so much from the second day itself.

The situation was similar the next day

In this match, Team India is currently 134 runs behind England in the first innings. England's innings ended on 353 runs on the second day of the match. For his part, Joe Root remained not out after scoring 122 runs, while lower-order Ollie Robinson scored an impressive half-century. After this, Team India made a good comeback after losing the wicket of captain Rohit Sharma early and Yashshwi Jaiswal scored another brilliant half-century but young off-spinner Shoaib Bashir gave the Indian team one blow after another. After losing 7 wickets for just 177 runs, Dhruv Jural and Kuldeep Yadav put on an unbeaten partnership of 42 runs to take the team to 219 runs.
