Cricbuzz writer Bharat Sundaresan has tweeted about the Nagpur pitch, after which it seems that the Kangaroo batsmen have lost their sleep. Sharing pictures of the pitch on Twitter, Bharat wrote, ‘Interesting treatment on Nagpur pitch. The groundstaff poured water on the center surface of the crease, but did not run the roller on the length area for the leg stumps of the left handers.
The Australian cricket team has left-handed batsmen like David Warner, Usman Khawaja and Travis Head. According to Fox Sports, the Nagpur pitch curator has given this special treatment to the pitch to trouble the Australian left-handed batsmen. The Australian players were already worried about the spin-friendly pitch, so the Kangaroos have lost their sleep after this kind of treatment.

Regarding the pitch, Australian veteran batsman Steve Smith said, ‘It is quite dry, especially one end of the pitch. I think left arm spinners will be of great help on this pitch. I haven’t seen much, but I don’t think this pitch will give any bounce to the fast bowlers. ,
