As for the pitch, it is a true Test pitch. Australia are 2-1 up and this was always going to be a tight game and India had to dominate to draw. And Australia are obviously going to be very defensive to hold. But the pitch is playing fine, we are now in a position where anything can happen in the next hour or two. And then we have got a day set up tomorrow.
I know "a team" or "a player" plays game but I don't know how "pitch" is playing here?
So please explain to me what the "pitch is playing fine" means here.
[Note : I know the meaning of "pitch". It is the area where batsman plays and bowler bowls]
'The pitch is playing fine' is analogous to 'the car drives smoothly'. If the pitch was deteriorating, the match reporter might feel that the bowling side had the advantage - because the ball when bowled would bounce unpredictably (making it harder for the batting side). 'The pitch is playing fine' means that both sides have an even chance.
