Kumar Sangakkara Bets On Virat Kohli's Batting Future

Despite boasting of an outstanding ground fielding unit India's slip catching has been far from assured Despite boasting of an outstanding ground fielding unit India's slip catching has been far from assured

There was not much help for spinners in the last two days.

He further expanded on the issue and described the lack of sharpness from spin bowlers as a one-off occurrence.

He said the ICC had informed them that it will take necessary steps. "If you look at their performances throughout the season, they are the most hard bowlers for any opposition to face". This is one odd game where there wasn't much assistance from the pitch.

In the team rankings, India lost a point but retained their comfortable lead at the top, with 124 points as against second-placed South Africa's 111 points. "With U-19, what we are trying to move the players from junior level to the Ranji level and then hopefully the Indian team", said Dravid defending the decision to exclude Shaw from the Asia Cup squad.

Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara lodged the complaint on Tuesday itself saying "we can't play like this as four players had vomited" due to the pollution. In his opinion, Kohli would carry a balanced bowling side, which include good pacers, quality all-rounders and top-class spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. "We will discuss when we reach SA but we are already talking about that", he added.

Looking ahead to the tough overseas tour of South Africa on which the Indian team embarks in the near future, the centurion from the first game thought that the experience of having played in the country before would be useful for him and other players. "We should remember that Rohit wasn't at his best in South Africa". I have been there a couple of times. Many of our players were there in 2013. Dilruwan Perera, who opened the batting in the first innings, was also dropped by Shikhar Dhawan at second slip before going on to score 42 runs.

"The South African batting is not what it used to be at one time. That will give us some advantage". During the Hindu festival of Diwali in October, the country's Supreme Court outlawed the sale of fireworks in an effort to prevent the recurrence of a toxic fog that engulfed the city during last year's festival.

"It was a kind of a revelation that I can play in Tests the way I can do in ODIs... if you can believe in yourself, you can achieve anything in any format", he said.

Soft-spoken Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal said youngsters with a good attitude are always able to produce results after his team eked out a hard-earned draw against India in the third cricket Test. In the squad selected for South Africa, most of the players have been part of the team, who played in South Africa and Australia before.
