"Nothing wrong with it (pitches produced for the Test series). I would hope the one in Delhi is absolutely the same. I have no qualms about it," Shastri said.

India have taken a 2-0 lead in the four-match series, the second game of which was a washout. The series has been marred by a controversy on the tracks, dubbed excessively spin-friendly, even though the visiting side has not complained about them. The final match of the rubber is scheduled from December 3 here.

Shastri also rejected concerns about Test matches ending inside three days. He said those complaining about the pitches should understand that it is the lack of technique which is troubling batsmen, not the tracks.

The former Indian captain said batsmen who had the patience to apply themselves could have even scored hundreds on these very tracks.

"(The pitch was) absolutely not (a problem). It's on both sides. Par for the course on this wicket was 275 or 250, which was more than enough. If you get up and reach there (to the pitch of the ball) and there is a surface like that you can play on it. You have to stop cribbing and get on with the job at hand.
