Aakash Chopra is against Ravi Shastri’s opinion that India should prepare rank turners for the upcoming Test series against Australia.
The hosts will lock horns with the Pat Cummins-led team in a four-match Test series, with the first game starting in Nagpur on Thursday, February 9.
“Ravi Shastri has said that the ball should turn from Day 1 of the match. I am not in favour of rank-tuners because the contest will become even if the ball spins a lot. Luck plays a bigger role there,” he said on his YouTube channel.
“If the pitch behaves normally, it would start turning slowly and become good for the spinners on Day 4 of the game. On Day 5, spinners would have a big say. The batters are tested and there is a reverse swing as well. That is an ideal surface.”
