Rahane was questioned about the abundance. The impact of bowler-friendly wickets on hitters in Test cricket. Indian wickets, he responded, will also reward hitters for their efforts.

IND vs NZ 2021, “See, right now, we are into the ICC [World] Test Championship and home advantage… you have to make the most of it and in India, we are backing our bowlers to take 20 wickets, and as I said that [there will be] spin-friendly wickets. We are going to play on those kinds of wickets [but] at the same time it will be good to bat. Batsmen will have to apply themselves; if they get set, they’ll have to convert it to a big one,” Ajinkya Rahane said.
“That is the challenge as a batsman. When you play at the highest level, you’ll have to adapt according to the situation, the conditions and once you are set, try and get a big one. But yeah, in the future we are going to play in the pitches which won’t be just spin-friendly and you’ll see that,” Rahane said.
Lastly, the two-Test rubber is the first time in India and New Zealand. They will clash in the format after the first WTC final next year. Also, this three-year-old competition has coincided with an era of bowlers, mainly pacers, in the Test arena. This has seen teams design pitches tailor-made for their bowlers. At home even as their batters continue to struggle overseas. India’s success in Australia and England are a few exceptions to this trend.
