Sanjay Manjrekar reminded Rohit Sharma of 2001, said- not the pitch then, there was discussion on the performance

It has been 4 days since the second Test match between India and England (India vs Englad 2021) has ended, but the pitch used for this match in Chennai is still going on. Controversy started from the first day of the match regarding the pitch of MA Chidambaram Stadium. Former England captain Michael Vaughan questioned it first and then the England media also made it an issue. Now on this issue, former Indian cricketer and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar (Sanjay Manjrekar) has said that if the pitch does not behave like this from day one, the pitch will not be discussed. Manjrekar's statement came after Indian opener Rohit Sharma's statement in which he said that the performance should be discussed instead of the pitch.

Indian star Rohit Sharma, who scored a century on the first day of the Chennai Test, said on Sunday that like all other teams, India also has the right to take advantage of its home conditions. Rohit also said that the performance of the players should be discussed instead of the pitch. After this statement of Rohit, the commentator Manjrekar has said that if the pitch does not break on the first day, no one would discuss it.

The pitch will break in half an hour, then there will be discussion

Manjrekar gave an example of India's historic victory over Australia in 2001 by tweeting on Monday 22 February. Manjrekar said, "If the pitch does not break in the first 30 minutes of the 5-day Test, then I don't think there would have been any discussion on the pitch." In 2001, when India defeated Australia in India, no one was talking about the pitch. We were all reading stories of the performance of Indian players.

Vaughan raised the question, but the England team gave the answer

England's team is struggling in the Test series against India. The English team captained by Joe Root is 2–1 behind in the series and most of the players are struggling a lot in private. Amidst all this, the team's most experienced players and the most successful fast bowler in Test cricket history, James Anderson, are achieving new positions. At the age of 38, Anderson remains the world's leading fast bowler and once again showed his ability in the first innings of the fourth Test. With this, Anderson achieved a feat that had only come in the form of great bowlers such as Glenn McGrath and Wasim Akram.
