Adelaide: Miffed with the questions being raised about the technique of Indian batsmen on bouncy tracks, opener Gautam Gambhir on Sunday wondered if the Australians would still be so mentally strong and prone to "chit-chatting" if they were playing on rank turners in India.
"Every country prepares according to their strength. We should also at home prepare according to our strength. If Australia, South Africa and England come, we should also prepare rank turners. Then their temperament and technique would be tested," Gambhir said ahead of the fourth and final Test of the four-match series, which India have lost 0-3.
"There is a lot of grass (on pitches here) which has helped seamers. We shouldn't be afraid to prepare turners. Then we would know if they are mentally strong. Then we would know if they still chit-chat and question our techniques," he fumed.
