“Like most Indian pitches, the central strip at Indore's Holkar stadium too has virtually no grass, thus offering little assistance for pace, bounce or lateral movement in the air. It is a pure batting track,” he said.
A die-hard Tendulkar fan, Chauhan had this to say about the man of the moment. “Sehwag had a good look at the pitch in the morning. He is not known to be too bothered about the wicket and true to his style he didn't enquire about the surface and left within a few minutes.”
