"To be honest we haven't fielded well in the slips. But our fast bowlers and spinners bowled really well", Pujara said.
With fitness being on agenda, India players have become better athletes, their ground fielding has improved, but nobody from the camp has been able to say why the same fielders seem to resemble non-stick cookware at slips. Someone like Murali Vijay, who used to be at first slip didn't play due to injury, he didn't play cricket for 6 months. I think he is one of India's best batsmen and has scored a lot of runs in India and even overseas. We don't want to disturb him from there. Let's see what happens when we go to South Africa.
Angelo Mathews returned to form with a gritty knock of 111 in the first innings, but only after Virat Kohli dropped him on six and then Rohit Sharma spilled one when he was on 98 - both at second slip. If Kohli and Rohit were guilty of handing Mathews two definite lifelines, Shikhar Dhawan grassed Dilruwan Perera at second slip early in the first innings. To be honest, we put in a lot of hardwork in our fielding, especially we know catching is very important. "We will also discuss that when we reach South Africa", Pujara, who stood at first slip against the pacers, said. All players standing in the slips are taking 50 to 100 catches every day. We're having a chat about it and will assign a few players who will be there throughout the series. We're trying to improve. "Eventually the results will come". Following another fruitful series against South Africa, Pujara has swiftly turned his attention towards the upcoming tough tour of South Africa in January 2018. "It has been a fantastic year but there is scope for improvement". We have enough experience being in South Africa, that will help us. I have been there in 2010 and 2013.
A plausible explanation for India's poor form in the slips could be the fact that they have often rotated players in a catching area that needs teams to identify and stick with specialists. It will definitely help us. "Our fast bowling unit has improved drastically and is much better now". I think our fast bowlers will do the damage. "South Africa batting, what it used to be and what it is now, there is a difference", he said. "That will give us some advantage". It is to be noted that India has now won nine successive Test series and is ranked No. 1 in Tests. "Any batsman will go through a phase where he might not score too many runs, and Ajinkya is going through the same thing". Ajinkya is going through the same thing.
"[It is a] hard question to answer as I don't know technically what is going wrong", reckoned Pujara after the conclusion of the Delhi game on Wednesday.
