Many former cricketers, including Michael Vaughan and Mark Waugh, had criticized Chepauk’s pitch for the second test, describing it as not good enough for five-day cricket.
Expressing his opinion, Rohit said that every team in the world makes the most of their home conditions by setting up pitches according to their style of play and that there should be no debate whether the Indian team makes any even.
“Each team makes full use of their home advantage. When we go out the same thing happens there too, they don’t think of us. So why should we think of anyone. What we like and what is the preference of our team, we should do that … that’s what home or away advantage means. If not, take the home and away advantage and play cricket without it. it is up to ICC to establish a rule, setting identical standards for lands in India and outside, “he added.
He added that he could not understand why there was so much debate on the pitch in India when other countries are doing the same and making ‘life difficult’ every time the Indian team travels overseas. . The right-hander opener also said that instead of talking about the pitches, it’s better if the talks revolve around the performance of the players.
“But when we travel abroad they also make our life difficult. So I don’t think we should be discussing the grounds a lot and instead talking about the game and the players. Discussion of how a player beats or how is a bowler the bowling is very good but not the grounds because the conditions remain the same for both teams and the one who plays better will win ”, he concluded.
