The pitch for the IND vs WI day 4 is no real demon for the batters. It’s very much a hard surface for the batters to exploit. The bowlers will have to toil hard to get wickets to get their wickets. Bowling a wicket-to-wicket line would be the ideal choice to restrain the batters from quick scoring.

Some wear and tear can be seen outside the off-stump line, which could be a threat to the batters. It might play differently a bit for the spinners as we approach the backend of the IND vs WI 2nd test.
