England call Great Ranchi pitch ‘shocker’ after Joe Root’s u-turned ton




The Ranchi pitch was below loads of focus for the fourth India vs England Check. Though thus far, there are some ghosts which have the potential to create noise, discussions round it have been plentiful. From complicated Ben Stokes to being known as a ‘shocker’ on the eve of a Check match, the Ranchi pitch has seen all of it. On Saturday, Day 2 of play, Ollie Robinson gave away his wicket after scoring a career-best 58 as England’s first innings ended on 353 regardless of Joe Root remaining unbeaten on 122.

On the primary day of the match, former England captain Michael Von X wrote: “The outdated saying .. do not decide a pitch till each groups have batted and bowled .. however let’s be trustworthy .. it seems a stunner. ..# INDvsENG” posted by Michael Vaughan on Friday X.

He then did a U-turn and wrote: “The pitch is clearly not value pushing anymore.. #INDvsENG”

Between these two posts, Vaughan praised Joe Root for avoiding the aggressive ‘baseball method’ and scoring tons. “Nice to see Frequent Sense Ball .. #INDvsENG,” he wrote.

Apparently, Vaughan modified his opinion of the way in which England’s batting route handled Indian bowling and pitching.

Of their reply, India, dropping skipper Rohit Sharma for a paltry 34 runs at lunch, trailed England by 319 runs. Veteran James Anderson seemed behind Rohit with a supply that skidded off the floor after being pitched at good size, borrowing from the Indian skipper’s bat that Ben Foakes had taken.

Yasswi Jaiswal (27 batting) was his traditional assured self and was joined on the break by Shubman Gill (4).

England added 51 priceless runs to their in a single day complete of 302/7 because the Indian assault did not make inroads early on. After being 112/5 at lunch on the opening day, England’s final 5 batsmen added 241 runs.

Debutant Akash Deep could not add to his tally of three wickets to return with 3/38 in 19 overs as Mohammad Siraj (2/78) erred on his line and size.

For India, Ravindra Jadeja took three wickets to return with 4/67 in his 32.5 overs.

Root, who dug deep for his classical century for over six hours, was trapped for 122 off 274 balls (10×4).
