Kolkata: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni who has been rooting for rank turners to exploit the home advantage, Tuesday had his views endorsed by his England counterpart Alastair Cook, who too called for result-oriented pitches.
"If the wicket is really flat it is hard to get results. What's the point of preparing a wicket that will produce drab draws? India will have home advantage. But a turning wicket gives both sides an equal opportunity to win," said Cook on the eve of Eden Gardens Test beginning from Wednesday. (Related read: Dhoni continues to favour playing on turners)
