Tendulkar was in the news recently when he slammed the ICC for rating for rating the Perth pitch as an average. “Pitches play a crucial role, especially in Test cricket. In order to revive Test cricket and generate excitement, we need to provide more pitches like the one at Perth, where the skills of batsmen and bowlers are truly TESTed. This pitch was by no means “Average”,” Tendulkar wrote on Twitter on Sunday.
