Head coach Ravi Shastri today went on to say that the present Indian team is not much concerned about the nature of the pitch. He rubbished the reports of various media reports which suggested that the Indian team management decided to cut their practice game by a day after taking a look at the pitch and the outfield.
“There was no complaint from the Indian management about anything. On this entire trip, you will never see an Indian team giving excuses with regard to conditions or the pitch,” Shastri was quoted as saying by the BCCI website.
“One thing, on this trip, you will never see this Indian team giving an excuse as regarding conditions or the pitch. Our challenge is to beat them. We take pride in performing wherever we go and we want to be the best travelling side in the world.
“The last person to complain will be this Indian team, so I want to clarify this very clearly,” he added.
