While the debate over the pitch has taken the centre stage in the ongoing Test series, India and England will be setting their eyes on only one thing — the World Test Championship (WTC) final.
India only needs to draw the final Test against Joe Root’s men in order to seal a spot in the WTC final where will then take on New Zealand at the Lord’s from June 18-22.
The hosts will be riding on the confidence following their back to back wins in the last two Tests after suffering a massive 227-run defeat in the first game in Chennai. In the last Test played with the pink ball in Ahmedabad, India registered a 10-wicket win within two days.

India vs England Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report
The pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium has been the topic of discussion. While it isn’t likely to spin as much as it did in the pink ball Test, but one would expect the wicket for the fourth Test to assist the spinners once again.
The ball is likely to start turning right from Day 1, and batsmen should look to keep the scoreboard ticking.
