Bishan Bedi terms Nagpur pitch "disgraceful"
New Delhi: Former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi today blasted the Nagpur pitch calling it "disgraceful" and also called the Indian team's strategy as "myopic."
The legendary left-arm spinner, who has always been forthright in his opinions took to micro-blogging site twitter to criticise the 22-yard strip that saw England crawl to 199 for five after 97 overs.
"Another disgraceful pitch in Nagpur-Indns may've to pay fr myopic strtgy- Dhoni welcome dig own grave-why take Indn crkt along?BCCI silent?!," Bedi wrote on his twitter page.
Bedi feels that Indian team might have to pay for their shortsighted approach.
The veteran feels that it is fine that the current skipper has decided to "dig (his) own grave" but he shouldn't take "Indian cricket along" while the BCCI remains "silent".
Bedi also praised Mohinder Amarnath for coming out in the open and speaking on the Dhoni's captaincy controversy and Rahul Dravid for stating that the Indian players "lack technique and ability."
"Salute Jimmy Amarnath & Dravid fr their honest upright views on Indn crkt presently-truth must surface even in untruthful times.....!!!!!"
Despite all the rain interruptions, India defeated their arch rivals Pakistan for the first time in the ICC Champions Trophy.
