Former India cricketer turned commentator Navjot Singh Sidhu today came down heavily on ex-Australia skipper Steve Waugh, who criticised India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for demanding tracks that turn from the very first day.
"Ask Steve Waugh whether the Indian team gets a turning track when we visit Perth?," asked Sidhu.
"Does Waugh wants that we gift the Test series to England? The track will be same for both teams," he added. Sidhu also said that the hosts, in order to win the Test series 4-0, should go for the turning tracks.
"We are not here to give comfort to the English side. We would like to win this series. When we go to England, do they make tracks that offer turn? It is important for India to win this series," Sidhu said.
Dhoni, after winning the first Test against England at Ahmedabad, expressed his displeasure at the Motera wicket and said that "We wanted the curators to prepare the pitches that will turn from day one."
The second Test in Mumbai is scheduled to start from Friday where ball is expected to turn a lot and Sidhu suggested the Indian team go to with an extra spinner in Harbhajan Singh, in addition to Ravichandran Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha.
