Ranchi was pretty flat for the first three days, wasn't it? That was a more typical Indian pitch IIRC.and the Nagpur one where Root made his debut. And even the Ranchi one in 2017 tbh.
That Nagpur pitch was a bit out of the period I was considering but I was also hoping never to have to think about that thing again. God that was a horrible match to watch. Dhoni being OS'd on 99 the only highlight.
