Cracks playing a huge role for spinners and quicks – Wade

Cracks playing a huge role for spinners and quicks - Wade

India v Australia 2017 4th Test Sat 25 March, Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala, India.
India – 0/0 1 ov CRR: 0.00
Australia – 300

Wicketkeeper Matthew Wade has said Australia will look to exploit the same conditions that helped India take ten wickets when play resumes on the second day of the deciding Test in Dharamsala.

That was quite enjoyable to have the ball coming in around shoulder height from behind the stumps,” Wade said. “That was something you get a little bit excited about.



“Hopefully that can continue with the new ball tomorrow and Patty Cummins and Josh can pick up a couple of early wickets. But it’s definitely the best carry we’ve seen throughout the whole series for sure.

“The cracks are playing a huge role, with the spinners as well as the quicks. So, we will be looking to get a bit out of the cracks in the wicket tomorrow. Hopefully, we can create ten opportunities.”
