Former Pakistan captain Younis Khan has slammed the Indian pitches that were made during the recently concluded India vs South Africa series.
The 38-year-old batsman said the Indian pitches were not good advertisement for Test cricket and has urged the ICC to ensure uniformity of tracks in the longest format across the world.
India won the four-match Test series 3-0 and handed the No.1 Test side their first overseas loss in nine years.
“I don’t think it was good advertisement for Test cricket in the recent India and South Africa series that the ball was turning from the first day onwards. The element of competition disappears on such pitches,” Younis said.
Younis also said the pitches in overseas conditions have changed over the years.
“The pitches nowadays in these countries also are not the same as they were a decade or two ago. Look at Australia you don’t see the same pace or bounce, similarly in England not all pitches now have lot of seam movement.”
The veteran batsman has played 104 Test matches for his country and has scored 9916 runs with a sound average of 53.94.
