After India's crushing 10-wicket win against England in the third Test in Ahmedabad, which saw the contest get wrapped inside two days, several former cricketers were highly critical of the pitch. Many, including India's 2011 World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh, felt it was not an ideal track for a Test match. The former Indian cricketer took to Twitter to express his disappointment and claimed that spin legends like Harbhajan Singh and Anil Kumble would have scalped over 800 wickets if such tracks were available during his playing days.

Off-spinner Axar Patel made full use of the opportunity he got in the ongoing Test series against England with a match-winning performance in the Pink-Ball Test. Axar, who was picked in the team as a replacement for all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, claimed 11 wickets in the third Test to set up a massive victory for India. Jadeja sustained a thumb fracture during Australia and was ruled out of the England Tests as many in the cricketing world predicted that India will miss him in the series.

After the match, flamboyant all-rounder Hardik Pandya took an interview with local boy Axar for BCCI.tv. During the conversation, Axar opened up on his mindset when he was out from the team. “When I was out of Team India for three years, I used to think on how can … [Read more...] about Virat Kohli’s Special Cameo With Gujarati Twist Leaves Axar Patel And Hardik Pandya in Splits | Watch Video
