Pitches just like the toss have been very important, especially in test cricket. Everyone has a close eye on the pitch report and how would the nature of the pitch change on day 2, 3, 4 or 5. Based on this, at times captains take a decision to bat first or bowl first. But after the end of three tests, everything else seems unimportant, only the nature of the pitch is in the limelight.

The rank turners in test matches so far have been a topic of debate all over. One might see the likes of Hayden or Maxwell criticising the pitch while you would also see the likes of Shastri or Kohli defending it. They all have valid points but all cricket fans need to see is some interesting cricket. The game has favoured the batsmen a lot and let us be fine with some pitches that support bowlers, especially spinners. Nations around the world prepare fast and bouncy pitches, so ideally there is nothing wrong in playing on turning tracks. Ultimately they don't have real potholes! And cracks here and there should be fine. The intent of batsmen matters more. AGnd in this series we have seen players like AB de Villiers, Faf du Plessis or Kohli getting out on rash shots. So it is harsh to criticise the pitch.

Even T20 cricket has had a lot of influence on cricketer's mind. Slowly batsmen are losing the art of sticking to the wicket and playing for a draw at times. Overall the quality of batting has been low and spinners have definitely capitalized on the rank turners.

Number tell the story - out of five completed South African innings, Indian spinners have grabbed 47 out of 50 wickets. Out of which Ashwin clinched 24, Jadeja got 16 while Amit Mishra got seven wickets.

The pitch here at Kotla in the fourth test may not possess so much of turn. But it definitely be challenging for the batsmen. Their patience would again be tested on this slow and low pitch. Let us see how the batsmen from both the sides perform. 

This series will be followed by a possible series that is long awaited - India vs Pakistan. If BCCI gets a nod from the Indian government, we might have India vs Pakistan ODI and T20 cricket series that would be played in Sri Lanka. We will keep you updated. Before that, don't forget to enjoy India vs South Africa live on Star Sports and HotStar.

Update - The much anticipated India vs Pakistan 2015 cricket series didn't happen. India tours to Australia for ODI and T20 series.
