After team India defeated the England cricket team within two days in the just-concluded Pink-ball Test match, former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh took to his Twitter and questioned the pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
Well, in the just-concluded Pink-Ball Test match, India and England – none of the teams were able to cross the 150-run mark with England cricket team bowled out for 112 and 81 runs in first and second innings respectively.
While the Indian cricket team made a strong comeback to win the just-concluded match and take the lead of 2-1 in the ongoing 4-match Test series against England. However, a debate regarding the pitch has kickstarted on social media with several cricketers and cricket experts coming out to express their concern.
Among many, former Indian cricketer and world cup hero Yuvraj Singh also took to his Twitter and posted a hard-hitting tweet, while expressing his thoughts about the just-concluded pink-ball Test match.
In his Tweet, Yuvraj expressed his concern for the Test cricket and also went on to make a comparison that if Anil Kumble and Harbhajan bowled on these kinds of wickets, they would be sitting on 1000 and 800. Concluding his tweet, he congratulated team India, Axar Patel and Ashwin. He wrote:
“finished in 2 days Not sure if that’s good for test cricket !If @anilkumble1074 and @harbhajan_singh bowled on these kind of wickets they would be sitting on a thousand and 800 ? However congratulations to India @akshar2026 what a spell! congratulations @ashwinravi99 @ImIshant”

According to your logic, if Kohli and Smith batted on the pitches where Bhajji and Kumble bowled, he would have had more test hundreds than Sachin?

I can't believe he actually did this moronic comparison. What a waste to his name

Jalbhajan should Tweet this from his own Account.

Pathetic tweet in utter bad taste.
What a shame yuvi. Imagine yourself batting on these wickets and you wouldn't last few overs with practice bowlers.
