Don't compare Indian pitches. It is absolutely nothing for bowlers (Dead Pitches). Rohit hit 209 in India only (Not in NewZealand). Mitchell is in good form in last 6 tests. In current moment he is the best attacking (fast) bowler....

Rajkot, Sir Jadeja's backyard... I guess any slow turning wicket will be fun for Mitch

Overhyped ! He is still to play outside Australia. They should remember they lost 0-4 in India and 0-3 in England less than a year before. They also lost ODI series to India with the team including MJ.

Seriously?!!! 6 tests is all it takes for somebody to become superheroes, invincible? He performed only in Australia and in one test in SA and we are already looking for Anti-Mitch pitch?

Send him to Subcontinents, he will go back weeping and resign claiming psychological problems.

@PERL57, do we call NZ pitches as dead pitches as it doesn't offer any turn? Just because a pitch doesn't support pace doesn't make them DEAD.

"He didn't do well on WACA" - well he got 6 wickets so it was hardly bad - perhaps by his standards over past 6 Tests, but sloppy words really.
