Former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson has defended the Perth pitch after it was given 'average' rating by the ICC.

The left-arm pacer termed the pitch as exciting and it produced a contest between bat and ball.

Johnson tweeted, "Nothing wrong with it. It was exciting to watch a contest between bat and ball for a change and not these dull flat tracks being served up constantly. I’d actually be interested in knowing what a good pitch is? Hope for another exciting test at the MCG."




In general, the pitch was praised by experts and coaches alike. "Anyone who says there's anything wrong with that wicket, they must've been watching a different game," Australia coach Justin Langer had said.
