The Cape Town Test played between India and South Africa was won by the African team by 7 wickets. Like. Africa not only won the third Test but also captured the 3-match series 2-1. There was a lot of controversy on the third day of the Cape Town Test. Many times Virat Kohli was seen losing his cool on the field regarding DRS and African broadcaster.

During the post-match press conference, when Kohli was questioned on the DRS controversy, he said- I don’t want to say anything on it. Whatever happened ended on the field itself. At the same time, Virat said that the reason for the team’s defeat was poor batting.

Top 5 reasons why Team India’s dream was broken: Captaincy dispute before the series, Pujara-Rahane’s flop show; South Africa had to take it lightly

Batsmen disappointed
Virat Kohli said- The biggest challenge in front of us on foreign tour is that we are not able to maintain the momentum, where we have been able to do so, we have won. We tried to do that here, but there came a time of 40-45 minutes in the match where we batted badly. The opposing team bowled brilliantly.

Indian Test Captain said – There is no doubt that the reason for the loss in this series was our poor batting. Our batting in the last two matches let us down a lot. Surely now this has to be taken care of. We did better in Australia and England, but that doesn’t guarantee to do better in Africa. The reality is that we do not live in Africa and we have to deal with it.

What will happen to Pujara-Rahane
Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane performed poorly in this series as well. Both got a start several times, but could not convert it into a big innings. There is even talk of dropping both from Team India. When Kohli was questioned on this, he said – Both (Pujara-Rahane) had a good partnership. Further decisions are in the hands of the selectors.

Centurion’s victory was special
Virat said that- KL’s batting as an opener in this series. Rishabh Pant’s century in Cape Town and especially the win at Centurion was very special for us.
