“You must gain from that. We must take bits from it, add it to our own game and return better. They (conditions) are altogether different to what in particular a great deal of our folks have encountered previously. It probably won’t be that one more Day 2 pitch may turn as much as this one. Be that as it may, it could be Day 3,4, or 5, where it turns into a touch seriously testing. Ideally, folks will gain from it,” he added.
Talking further about the pitch, Root uncovered that he and his colleagues were somewhat astounded with the ricochet the surface advertised. Root himself tumbled to a conveyance in the second innings that skiped violently in the wake of arriving close to the great length locale.
