The third and final Test between India and Sri Lanka that was played in Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in New Delhi was marred by severe pollution.
3- Players who have scored more than 600 runs in a series batting five or fewer innings. There are some players who will be there throughout the away tours. "We will be very well prepared before we head to South Africa. We are looking forward to the World Cup now and the three-week camp ahead of that starts in Bengaluru tomorrow".
"To be honest, we haven't fielded well and I would accept that". At the same time, there have been injuries. At the same time there have been injuries where openers have missed out, someone like Murali Vijay, who used to be at first slip, didn't play due to injury for six months. "We will discuss when we reach South Africa but we are already talking about that", Pujara said.
"He is one of India's best batsmen and he has scored a lot of runs, in india and even overseas". "We don't want to disturb him from there". All-rounder Angelo Mathews has moved up seven places to 23rd position after scoring 111 in the first innings while Dhananjaya de Silva's match-saving 119 in the second innings has lifted him nine places to 47th position. "I admit we haven't taken many catches but we will definitely get better at it". All players standing in the slips are taking 50 to 100 catches.
Perhaps it is time appropriate for the governing body of cricket the ICC to take remedial action and the organizers and adjudicators of games such as the umpires to be given strict instructions towards ensuring the safety of players relative to health and making timely decisions to avoid incapacitating them which could even result in permanent health hazards as seemed to be the case in this instance while bearing in mind that it is not only unsafe pitches and possible threats from sources bent on disrupting the game that come into play during a game.
This Indian team's standing against those of the past will become clear over the next year but one thing is certain: the slip catching is decidedly worse, and worryingly it has not improved at all since they came together. "We have enough experience of being in South Africa". I have been to South Africa in 2010 and 2013.
Indian U-19 team's head coach Rahul Dravid has called upon his players to follow Virat Kohli's lead and match the senior team captain's remarkable consistency across all three formats of the game. I think our fast bowlers will do the damage. "He has batted well overall", Pujara said.
Ajinkya Rahane has been the only chink in India's armour, returning scores of 4, 0, 2, 1 and 10 in the five innings in this series.
