Nagpur pitch is denying India home advantage against touring opponents?


1st test of series held on Nagpur pitch that gave good batting practice and confidence to SA batsman but tired Indian spinners and fielders. The crowd attendance at the ground was pathetic even on Sunday. Last time also when SA came to India for a test series, the first test at Chennai had a pitch that was a batting paradise for SA.
When India tours SA or Aus, right from the 1st test pitches are kept that give only the home team max. chance of winning and go one up in the series and nobody objects or raises doubts over this style of winning. In 2007 tour of SA, 1st test was at Wanderer's ground-but dat wicket was not at all a batting paradise for Indian batsman but a fast bowler's paradise perfectly suited for SA pacers and totally against Indian style of batting-fortunately Sreesanth bowled out SA for less than 100 to give India a chance to win and India won dat test.
Right from day 1 of 1st test pitch in India must totally support Indian style of batting and bowling and take full advantage of opponent's weakness. SA or Aus do the same thing when any team tours their country. What benefit does BCCI see in keeping tests at such pitches ? Poor crowds turn outs, Indian bowlers and fielders getting tired and confidence shattered perhaps even injured from fatigue and loss of this match. Only benefit is for SA. AFter seeing 1st two days play at Nagpur, I wondered whether SA was batting in India or in Cape Town.
A batting track that suits India is the one where SA pacers dont prove dangerous to the Indian batsman but Indian spinners and reverse swing will prove dangerous to the SA batsman.
The pitch for last test played here against Aus in 2008 was the perfect one. India won dat test but Aussie off spinner Kreza had got 12 wickets.
The pitch for 2004 test against Aus was like an Aussie ground-paceman Jason Gillespie taking 9 Indian wickets to defeat India

any country will have a certain advantage when they play at home.you cant deny them from having that.what do you mean by a batting track that suits India.A batting track is a batting track and it suits any team that bats.this pitch is not similar to the chennai one 2 years ago.and i think result can be obtained provided the teams play positively.i think south africa were too slow.this run rate might help them in south africa but not here.it will not be easy for the batsmen in the 4th and 5th day.so india need to make the best of tomorrow.i dont agree that nagpur has denied them of anything.they can still win it from here as the pitch will offer more turn as time goes by and many of the south africa batsmen are touring India for the first time.
and regarding the crowd turn out i agree that it is not as big as for a odi.but there are other facts to be considrerd.1)the jamtha stadium is far from the city and there is no public transport to that place which denies people who do not own vehicles.
2)there are no tickets available for a single day.u need to buy a ticket for all the 5 days.
