Former Pakistan captain and batter Salman Butt has lashed out on the Australian cricket crew and Ian Healy for the latter’s controversial assertion relating to Indian pitches. Australia are gearing as much as play a four-match Test collection in India towards the hosts, beginning February 9 in Nagpur. Healy had stated that if India supplied a ‘truthful pitch’ in which there’s constant spin, with out the ball “jumping ridiculously and sliding down low from day one”, then Australia will find yourself on the profitable aspect. The ex-Australia wicketkeeper-batter had added that if ‘unfair pitch’ is obtainable then India would play higher than the visiting crew in these circumstances.
Commenting on Healy’s assertion, Butt stated that the Australian crew has a behavior of complaining and calling it ‘unfair’ if the pitches do not favour them.
“When subcontinent teams travel to Australia, they don’t complain about the pitches. They don’t say there’s extra bounce pitch and that it’s unfair. There are different home conditions and you have to get used to those. Teams face difficulties in Perth, likewise, they also face problems against spin. So, you shouldn’t talk about what’s fair or unfair. The pitch is giving results. If the other team is winning on the same pitch that means they are performing better than you,” stated Butt on his official YouTube channel.
“But ye aadat bhi hai. Unko samajh naa aaye toh fair nahi hota (It’s their habit. If they can’t understand the pitch, they call it unfair),” he added.
Earlier, commenting on the assertion of Healy, Ashwin had stated that the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy wants such sort of ‘spark’.
The visiting Australian crew is presently coaching on the Karnataka Cricket Association Stadium floor in Alur after opting out of shape matches.
