Saba Karim slammed India for preparing unfit pitches in the ongoing four-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He claimed the host nation is coming up with spin tracks to qualify for the final of the World Test Championship (WTC).
He claimed the real spirit of Test cricket has been lost. Karim said the contest is between the top two teams of the world , but the quality of pitches hasn’t allowed good games.
“Steve Smith and Virat Kohli are the two best batters but we haven’t seen them scoring runs because of the pitches. What are we trying to achieve by preparing such tracks?” he said.
“In our desperation to qualify for the WTC final, we have gone against the spirit of Test cricket. The top two teams are competing and it would have been nice to see a fair contest between the bat and ball,” he added.
