Indis vs SA 2015: If Pune Test happens, Virat Kohli expects "result oriented wicket"

Bengaluru: Pune's Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium is known for being one of the flattest decks in the country and if the fourth Test match is shifted from Delhi to Pune, the Indian captain Virat Kohli wants the curators to prepare a "result oriented track".

With most of the Ranji Trophy matches witnessing massive scores, including the ongoing tie between Bengal vs Maharashtra match at Pune, which has produced 934 first innings runs (528 by Bengal and 406 by Maharashtra), the bowlers would have very little in store if the current character of the wicket persists.

"Test matches need to have wickets that give you result.

So I am sure, people concerned (at the Maharashtra Cricket Association stadium), who will be preparing the wicket from the association, will relate to the fact to keep this format as exciting (as possible). You need to have wicket that gives you result. The basic idea of administrators is that every ground should have an exciting game and a result. That's the main goal of having a Test match," Kohli said.
