Former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar has said Team India never cry about playing on the green pitches in contrast to England, who often criticize getting spin-friendly pitches. He slammed England for showing double standards.

When England toured India earlier this year, there were several rank-turners prepared for the Test matches. One of the Tests of that four-match series was concluded within two days in Ahmedabad.

Gavaskar stated India never cry for getting a green-top wicket when they tour abroad.

“Indian cricketers never complain about playing on the greener surfaces; either they are playing in England or Australia. But, on the contrary, the English team will always moan if given spin-friendly pitches in India,” Sunil Gavaskar said on the ‘Extra Innings’ show at Sony.

“In Nottingham, it was a green top; it was the same story at Lord’s. At Headingley, too, we can see a tinge of grass. Did you heard any Indian cricketers complaining about it?”

He, further, praised Team India’s fearless approach while playing on any type of surface.

“This Indian cricket team doesn’t fear playing on any surface. This is a big statement from this Indian cricket team. And for England, if you want to win a series in India, start producing quality spinners,” he added.

“It is not that they have never won in India, but during those series, they have some world-class spinners. A good batsman or bowler must perform at any surface.”

India were given green pitches in the first Test of the five-match series in Nottingham. Virat Kohli’s team outplayed England in all departments before the rain saved England’s blushes on the final day when it rained the entire day with India in pole position to win the Test.
