Riding on the back of a century on debut from Pathum Nissanka (103) and a stunning 96 from Niroshan Dickwella, Sri Lanka scored impressive 476 runs in their second innings, setting the West Indies a target of 375 to win.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, the Rawalpindi Express said, All in all, it was an embarrassing defeat for the England team, and they have got a reality check in India. But they need to now learn the art of playing spin in the sub-continent well.
Washington Sundar was the other spinner to bag a wicket to make it eight for the three slow bowlers. Pacer Mohammed Siraj, who was preferred to Umesh Yadav for this Test, took the other two wickets.
He played a perfect fiddle to Ravichandran Ashwin in the second Test to turn the result in India’s favour.
However, former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen, who came in support of the pitch, said he had enough of the criticism. Yes, the surface at Ahmedabad ensured that the ball was always likely to dominate in the third Test.
Having failed with the bat in England's innings, Ben Stokes made matters worse by claiming a catch of Shubman Gill.
However, the Indian skipper spotted him from far away and he immediately took a few steps back, asking the fan to return. On realising his mistake, the fan turned back and seeing that the entire crowd started cheering.

“It didn’t do anywhere near as much for 2 sessions ... Spun but not like what it’s doing now ... India would have drawn the first Test if they had batted anything like in the 1st innings ... This isn’t a good Test match pitch …,” he wrote
