The African captain Dean Agler raised questions on the pitch

Brisbane. After losing the opening Test against Australia within two days, South African captain Dean Elgar criticized the Gabba pitch, saying it had excessive moisture, due to which the match could not be equal.

The first Test match of the series between Australia and South Africa lasted just two days and during this 34 wickets fell. South Africa scored 152 and 99 runs in two innings respectively. Australia won the match by six wickets.

Elgar said after the match, ‘I am still thinking what happened in this match. The bowlers were getting a lot of help from the wicket. There was a tough challenge for the batsmen on this. It is fine but the other aspect of it is that it did not lead to an equal match between the ball and the bat.

Gaba test finished in two days
It was the second fastest ending Test ever in Australia. Only 867 balls were bowled in this match. During this, the bowlers took 15 wickets on the first day and 19 wickets on the second day, Elgar told Foxsports that you have to ask yourself whether it is good for Test cricket.

It was the first time in Australia in 91 years that a Test had ended inside two days and the pitch was criticized by former players including Mark Waugh.

Waugh and Ponting also angry with the pitch
Waugh said on Fox Cricket, ‘I think you have to question whether there is too much grass on this pitch? It seemed a bit unfair to the batsmen. This pitch can get a ‘poor’ rating from the ICC.

Former captain Ricky Ponting said on Channel 7, I have never seen anything like this in Gabba. Matthew Hayden has played more cricket here than me and he has never seen anything like this. And Justin Langer also said the same thing.
