talk about not complaining
Suryakumar said on Tuesday before the last match of the series that he and Hardik had talked about this and decided that we will not complain about whatever pitch we get in the future. That’s totally fine. Surya further said that it does not matter on which pitch you play. These things are not in your control. We did what was in our control.
wicket doesn’t matter
Explosive batsman Surya further said that ODI or T20, low-scoring or high-scoring, if the match is competitive then he does not think that wicket matters.

After the second T20 match, Pandya had said that the wickets at both the places were not according to T20 cricket. He further said that the curators should prepare the pitch well in time.
