port of Spain. India’s bowling coach Paras Mhambrey criticized the West Indies batsmen for not even attempting shots, terming the pitch being used for the second Test as too slow to bat on. West Indies are currently trailing 0-1 in the two-match series. He did not make any special efforts to score runs on the third day in reply to India’s 438 in the second Test. At the end of the third day’s play, the Caribbean team had scored 229 runs for five wickets and is 209 runs behind India.
Mhambre said at the press conference after the end of the third day’s play, “The pitch is very slow and very easy to bat on.” By the end of the day’s play, it had started taking a bit of turn. West Indies adopted a very defensive approach in batting. When the batsman tries to play the shot, there is also a chance to take wickets but he did not make such an effort. “He said,” Our bowlers performed impressively. He took advantage of whatever opportunities he got. ,

This former Mumbai fast bowler said, “The pitch should be alive. There has to be a balance for batsmen and bowlers. The pitch in Dominica had turn but we made good use of the conditions. It will be difficult to take 20 wickets on this pitch though.” The Indian bowling coach, playing in his Test debut, expressed satisfaction at the performance of pacer Mukesh Kumar, who took his maiden wicket in the form of Kirk McKenzie. Mhambrey said, “I am very happy with the progress he showed after bowling the first ball in the first session. In the second session, he moved the ball a bit. It was a really good effort.
