India vs England 2016 1st Test: 5 Talking Points
Did the DRS make a good debut?
The Rajkot Test between India and England may have ended in a draw, but it proved to be an intriguing five days of action with the visitors holding fort for a large part of the game.
There were many aspect in the game which were talked about. Here are the five talking points:
5.The Rajkot pitch- Good or Bad
For a venue hosting its first ever Test match, the pitch at Rajkot found mixed reviews from several quarters. While many appreciated the work done in producing a deck that had something for all, others felt India had missed a great chance of taking the lead in the series, by not dishing out a rank turner.
In the overall scheme of things, it would be slightly unfair to judge the venue based on just one game and hopefully, next time, when the Indian team plays in the city, one would have the opportunity to see a favourable result.
