Former England captain Michael Vaughan has compared the Wankhede pitch as a pitch of biscuits by posting a humorous video on his Twitter account. After the pitch started deteriorating from Day 3, Vaughan demonstrated it in a funny fashion by making a wicket of biscuits on the table.
After losing two Tests in the series, England needed to win the fourth Test to stay alive in the series. But England
Just before the start of fourth day’s play, Vaughan posted a short video on his Twitter account, in which he described the Wankhede wicket as a biscuit track. He went on to speak how the Wankhede pitch was said to have an orange tinge due to the soil.
He said, “Throughout the week, we have been saying that it has a little bit of an orange tinge to it, a tangerine soil I call it. But, I would say, it more like a biscuit. It was more like a ginger crunch. Now we are on day four, a look at the pitch and it got worse, it is not a ginger anymore. It’s like shortbread – lighter, pale in colour. You take in the hand and it breaks like you get in the hotels.”
Vaughn then picked up a spoon and made a demo pitch with biscuits on the table. He, then crushed the biscuits into powder to demonstrate that this is what the condition of the pitch looked on the fourth day.
