Speaking to the press after the loss of the Test series in Newlands on Saturday, Virat Kohli admitted that the batsmen did not take advantage of him after winning their opening series at Centurion. But he said it was not appropriate for him to comment on the future of Rahane and Pujara.

Even before the tour of South Africa began, questions were asked about Rahane and Pujara’s place in the team. In fact, Rahane lost his role as vice-captain before the start of the series, but team management backed the senior pair in overseas conditions in South Africa.

Virat Kohli said, “We need to move on with the bat. There is no escaping it. To answer this question (on Rahane and Pujara), I cannot sit here and talk about what is going to happen in the future. It is not for him. Let’s sit down and discuss. You have to talk to the selectors about what’s on their minds, it’s not my job. “

“As I said before and I will say again, we continue to support Cheteshwar and Ajinkya because of the kind of players they are and they have done a lot of work in Test cricket over the years. They have done well in serious situations. With that crucial partnership in the Tests and the second inning, we got the total we could have fought for. “
“This is the kind of performance we know as a team. What’s on the selectors’ minds and what they decide to do, I obviously can’t sit here and comment on it.”

Failure of two senior batsmen

Rahane, however, played decisive innings of 48 and 20 in the first Test as India beat South Africa by 113 runs in Centurion. The seniors, however, struggled for continuity before the Johannesburg Test failed to score in the first innings but flopped in the third Test, returning with a half-century in the second innings with Pujara.
In the third Test, two senior batsmen failed particularly crucially in the crucial second innings as India managed only 198 runs on the board despite Rishabh Pant’s superb century.
Rahane scored 136 runs in 3 Tests, Pujara scored 124 runs in 3 Tests and India lost a good chance to win their first Test series in the South.

India’s batting has once again come under question as openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal were very poor after their superb innings in the first Test. R Ashwin and Shardul Thakur were of no use in the lower order which proved to be a scab on leprosy. Such a poor performance was not expected from Ashwin in particular. Despite being so senior, he proved to be a major burden for his team on South Africa’s fast pitches. Overall, India lost this battle on many fronts, in which the senior players did not perform well.
Shami and Bumrah’s pace bowling was also on Shami and Bumrah’s back as India failed to save the target of 223 and 212 in the last two Tests.
