Commentator Sushil Doshi says that South Africa’s team performed better than India in the third Test.
Our bowlers didn’t get much bounce
Doshi said that the South African bowlers performed better in their home conditions. Our bowlers did get seam and swing movement, but didn’t get the kind of bounce that the South African bowlers got. This factor proved to be the deciding factor in the end. The host bowlers bowled by targeting the bodies of the Indian batsmen. This strategy proved to be effective.
our great batsmen failed
Doshi said that the Indian batsmen looked uncomfortable throughout the series except in the first innings of the first Test. Except KL Rahul in the first test and Rishabh Pant in the third test, none of the Indian batsmen looked comfortable in front of fast bowlers like Kagiso Rabada, Marco Jensen.
Captain should be involved in team selection
In the post-match press conference, Virat Kohli refused to comment on further changes in the team. He said that it is the job of the selectors. Guilty admits that Virat said this because he feels that he is not being listened to in the selection of the team. After all, the responsibility of victory and defeat rests with the captain, so the captain should be listened to in the team selection as well.
