England coach Chris Silverwood has remained non-committal on whether he or the England team management will complain about the pitch in the third Test that ended inside two days with India winning it by 10 wickets here on Thursday.

Silverwood, however, said that he expected the pitch to hold up a little longer.


"We expected that the wicket will hold up a little longer than it did to be honest, having looked at it. And equally, throughout training, using the pink ball. Looking back in history on pink ball Tests, the ball swung for us," said Silverwood on Friday.

Only two out of 30 wickets in the Test went to pacers.

Both India and England lost 30 wickets inside five sessions and this was only the second Test in India to finish inside two days. The first one involved a weak and debutant Afghanistan side but here both England and India are among the top Test sides in the world.
