With the third test getting finished over in just two days, both the teams got extra days of rest. While the Team India players are revitalising themselves for the fourth and final Test match, England players have reportedly applied for Indian citizenship under newly amended Citizenship Act to have an advantage of home pitch.
“Motera pitch is a painful reminder of the perils of stretching home advantage to the hilt. And in order to have this advantage we are becoming Indians ahead of the fourth test” told Joe Root to The Fauxy.
“This is unfair, other countries have this privilege of having dual citizenship while Indians can’t have it. If a test match happens in any other country we can’t get the citizenship of that country to have the home pitch advantage. BCCI.. I mean ICC must look into this” said Ravi Shashtri on England players taking Indian citizenship.
