Tbh I think OS is spot on really in that whatever criticisms can be justifiably levelled at the pitch this match has basically been fun. You'd probably get bored of matches like this quite quickly if they kept happening but it's the sort of crazy memorable sort of match that's part of what makes test circket as interesting to follow as it is
That's a good point. I guess you wouldn't have to add loads to each innings total for it to become notably low-scoring but not egregiously so, and quite possibly a lot of that difference could be down to unfamiliarity with how the pink ball behaved in these conditionsWeirdly, I dont think any of the Indians complained about the pitch being "unfair".
TBH, though, that was also due to the overhead conditions. But then again, a lot of what happened this game seems to be due to the pink ball too. We will find out next week, I guess.
