Nagpur the toughest wicket to score runs on, says Kevin Pietersen

The England batting stalwart sounded happy that his team had two seam bowlers to bowl on this pitch, as he thought it was very difficult to score runs off Ishant Sharma, the home team's lone pacer in the playing XI.

Nagpur: England batsman Kevin Pietersen today said that the slow-paced pitch prepared for the fourth and final Test here is the toughest he has played on as far as scoring runs in concerned.

"It's toughest wicket I have played Test cricket on in terms of scoring runs. I don't have a clue what the pitch will do later. Its playing pretty similar to what it did at the start of the day," said Pietersen after the first day's play.

Pietersen, whose 73 in 198 minutes off 188 balls is the top score in the tourists' end-of-day first innings score of 199 for five, said his team was in a reasonably good position but the runs doesn't mean anything until the game is over.
