Adelaide: Australia captain Michael Clarke on Monday rubbished allegations by Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir that the hosts doctored cricket pitches to ensure the tourists' downfall.
"The pitches have been the same in Australia for the last two years. In my opinion, it's very hard to doctor the wicket when you're playing against very good opposition. It's about preparing a pitch and then both teams playing on it. That will be no different when we go to India," said Clarke on the eve of the fourth and final Test.
Gambhir said on Sunday that Australia had prepared green-top pitches tailored to suit their pace bowling strength.
