Indian Commentator Aakash Chopra has questioned the strategy of the Windies in the ongoing Test match series against India. Indian Captain Rohit Sharma and the group ended the first day of the second test match at Port of Spain in Trinidad on Thursday, July 20. India scored 288/4 runs after being asked to batting first. India lost 4 wickets after the lunch session but didn’t face too many difficulties in the other two sessions.
Indian Commentator Aakash Chopra said,
“I am thinking what are West Indies doing? West Indies are saying you believe in ‘Atithi devo bhava’ (the guest is equivalent to God) and we also want to respect your tradition and that is why we will give you what you want.”
The Former Indian opener said,
“In the last match, India might have wanted to bowl because there was a little moisture on the pitch. They said you can bowl if you want and we will bat and get out for 150, don’t worry about it.”
The West Indies lost their first match of the series by an inning by 141 runs. They could make only 150 runs in their first inning and then invite India to score 421/5 before let go for 130 runs in their second innings.

Aakash Chopra said,
“Here, they gave an absolutely flat surface, firstly I have got no idea why they do that. If you want to challenge India with your team, the only way is to play on a green top. You are anyway losing but if you play on a green top, your fast bowling might trouble the Indian batters and you might be able to tackle our slightly inexperienced bowling better.”
Aakash Chopra Said that the West Indies increased to their problems by choosing to bowl first.
“They made an absolutely flat surface and then said you can bat and we will bowl. Thank you very much. ‘Atithi devo bhava’ is a very good thing and we liked your hospitality a lot.”
Chopra says that matches between both sides are no longer enjoyable to watch because of the bad performance of the West Indies team.
