Yesterday after end of the play CA Pujara said “he played so much cricket on this pitch and after day 3 this pitch will become very difficult for batting” as we seen at day 3 cracks of the pitch are increasing very fast and some deliveries had moved so far away from the bowling line after hitting the cracks and how much the cricket ball was turning yesterday when spinners bowled their spells.

AM Rahane back in his form he scored 40 runs and still not out. A Mukund had not survived for so long, his wicket down after scoring 16 runs off 32 deliveries.
