Moreover, R Ashwin complimented the Australian think-thank for nailing the World Cup pitches spot on. R Ashwin continued how Indian pitches frequently offer a range of conditions and how Ipl has familiarised the visiting team with them. In addition, Ashwin also poked a joke of Australia’s choice to bowl first on the World Cup final pitch. He added that he was totally deceived by the decision.

In the World Cup final, Australian bowlers were able to pick wickets more than Indian bowlers. Moreover, as the evening wore on, Indian bowlers received less and less assistance. Talking of the Indian pitches in World Cup, R Ashwin on his YouTube channel said,

“Pat Cummins was struggling as an ODI bowler heading into the World Cup. But in the last four or five games leading into the final, nearly 50% of the balls he bowled were cutters” he further added,

“Cummins bowled to a four-five leg-side field like an offspinner, attacking the stump line. He bowled only three balls in the six-meter mark or further up on the pitch in his entire 10-over spell. And he picked up crucial wickets in the final. The five fielders on the on side were square leg, midwicket, mid-on, deep square leg and long leg, and he bowled his ten overs without a mid-off. I have never seen a fast bowler bowl an entire spell to such a spinner-type field in my life, it was a game-breaking spell by Cummins”
