Visiting captain Hashim Amla could not remember if he had faced some-more severe conditions though Shastri was unapologetic about a marks India have rolled out in a series.

“It usually goes to uncover that with a volume of one-day cricket being played, a bent to graft, a bent to spend prolonged hours during a double is diminishing.

“(The representation was) positively not (a problem). It’s on both sides…You have to stop cribbing and get on with a pursuit during hand.”

Far from being disturbed about tests finishing prematurely, Shastri pronounced he would cite such formula to run feasts like that in Perth, where Australia and New Zealand scored a total 1,672 runs in a drawn second exam recently.

“Nothing wrong with that (matches finishing inside 3 days). It (Nagpur) was a exam review that was relocating all a time. You review this exam to a exam review in Perth, we would compensate income for a sheet for this game… To ruin with a 5 days.”
