“The whole talking point has been the pitch, this week it looks a lot better, it looks absolutely beautiful,” Vaughan said as he picked up rubble on the pitch.
“The strange bullet might come out of the rubble, but it should fly over your head. At the Test Match level, you should be able to handle it, ”continues Vaughan.
The former England captain then goes on to predict that the test match will not last more than “a few hours”.
“Whoever wins the draw could be a good winner. It can deteriorate on some days, but overall we’re in for a good few hours of cricket, ”he said indicating another quick finish in the fourth test.
The pitch was one of the main topics of discussion in the India-England series. It all started when England were knocked out cheaply in both rounds of the second test in Chennai, with India winning the game by 317 points. Criticism of the pitch, especially from a section of former England cricketers, increased by several notches when the pink ball test in Ahmedabad ended in two days with India taking a lead 2-1 after beating England by 10 wickets.
Vaughan was one of those who stood firm in his position on the Ahmedabad pitch unsuitable for trial cricket. The former top-notch drummer previously shared a photo of what appeared to be the process of plowing the soil with the caption: “I can report that the preparations for the 4th test are going wonderfully.”

When asked what he thought were the skills needed to survive on such difficult spin tracks, Kohli insisted on having a strong defense, which he says is no longer the strongest. thanks to shorter formats.
