India-Australia second Test will be played in Delhi
How will be the mood of the Arun Jaitley Stadium pitch?
Coach Rahul Dravid had reached Delhi before the players
New Delhi. The Indian cricket team is one win away from reaching the final of the World Test Championship. In such a situation, head coach Rahul Dravid does not want to leave any stone unturned. The second Test is to be played between the two countries in Delhi from February 17. But Rahul Dravid reached Delhi a day before. So that Arun Jaitley can feel the mood of the pitch of the cricket stadium. It is believed that like Nagpur, Delhi’s wicket can also be favorable for spin bowlers. That’s why Dravid wants to understand the pitch better before taking a decision on playing-XI.
Quoting the BCCI, Times of India has said that Rahul Dravid has reached Delhi and has been visiting the stadium for a few days and closely monitoring the pitch used in the Delhi Test.
How can the Delhi Test pitch be?
The Australian team is already scared about the fact that like Nagpur, the Delhi wicket will also be spin bowlers friendly. This time it is bitterly cold in Delhi. In such a situation, there is not much sunlight on the wicket. In such a situation, there can be low bounce on the wicket. It hasn’t rained much this time either. In such a situation, the wicket is already very dry. That means once again Australia’s evening is sure to come.
The pitch in Delhi has always been helping the spinners. Batting is easy here on the first 2 days of the Test. After this, the ball starts turning from the third day. As the game progresses, the cracks on the pitch will open even more.
Spin bowlers can dominate in Delhi
The previous record of Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium is also telling that the spin bowlers will get a lot of help from the wicket. In October last year, when an ODI match was played between India and South Africa at this ground, India bundled out South Africa for 99 runs. Then spin bowlers took 8 wickets. Kuldeep Yadav got 4 wickets in his account.

Australia’s team was stacked in 3 days in Nagpur Test. A total of 16 wickets were taken by the Indian spin bowlers in both the innings. To deal with the Indian spin bowlers, Australia practiced on the center wicket in Nagpur before coming to Delhi. Now it has to be seen how much this practice of Australia brings color in the Delhi Test.
