Regarding the Dharamsala pitch for the fifth England Test, Rohit Sharma said, “It Will Be a Typical Indian Pitch With Some.”

<p>Just one day before the fifth and final Test match between India and England began in Dharamsala, Indian captain Rohit Sharma expressed his opinion about the surface. Sharma said that the surface seems to be decent and that this would be his maiden Test match at the HPCA Cricket Stadium.</p>

<p>“I haven’t participated in a Test match at Dharamsala. “It looks like a good pitch, both seamers and spinners played back in the 2017 Test,” Rohit said during the pre-match news conference held in front of the fifth Test. The pitch will be characteristic of India, with considerable movement near the finish and at the beginning.</p>
<p>This location has only hosted one Test match, which India won by eight wickets against Australia in 2017. Ravindra Jadeja was declared the player of the match for his 1/57, 63, and 3/24 efforts, while Kuldeep Yadav made his debut in the game and returned a total haul of four wickets. Actually, the only members of the current team who played in that match were Kuldeep, Jadeja, and Ravichandran Ashwin.</p>
<p>The “used” Dharamsala pitch will be different from the ones previously shown in the series.</p>
<p>Speaking about the circumstances, Sharma did, however, imply that the club management would consider adding a seamer to the starting lineup. “The opportunity to play additional seamer is fantastic. Although we haven’t made up our minds yet, there’s a strong likelihood,” Sharma said.</p>
<p>In response to the argument about whether or not India should prepare pitches that favor spinners or rank turners, Sharma said that the goal of any preparation is to win the match regardless of the surface and that each kind of strip has advantages and disadvantages of its own. “The goal is to win, whether it’s a rank turner or any other pitch. Both sides have benefits and drawbacks, even on rank turners. I find more satisfaction in the manner we prevailed in the series. For us, it has been a succession of victories,” he said.</p>
<p>The “Family Man,” Ravichandran Ashwin, is expected to join the exclusive 100-test club.</p>
<p>England batsman Jonny Bairstow, who will play in his 100th Test match on Tuesday, praised the Dharamsala course. “Let’s see, it’s a used pitch from the Ranji Trophy last month. At the pregame news conference, Bairstow said, “Ground staff has done an amazing job with the pitch considering the weather we have had here.”</p>
