Despite being a successful Test captain, Kohli is unable to use DRS properly
Indian team captain Virat Kohli is achieving many successes on the cricket field but he is completely failing in the use of DRS. His problem surfaced on Saturday on the first day of the third Test match being played between India and South Africa.
Kohli has failed to use DRS properly for the ninth time in a row. Kohli was dismissed lbw by South African bowler Enrique Nortje on a personal score of 12, but was reviewed by Kohli, who went against him.
India lost their three wickets for just 39 runs in the first session of the day. After this, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane took over the team. The day's play was ended early due to poor lighting. Rohit Sharma was playing 117 and Rahane scoring 83 runs until the stumps were announced.
With this, Rohit completed his third and sixth century in this series. Both batsmen have been praised by the batting coach Vikram Rathore.
Rathore said that in the first session, when Kagiso Rabada was moving the ball, Rohit showed courage and took the first session. He said, "As I said, he was bowling well and the wicket was also helping. So as a batsman, you have to stay on the wicket at a time like this which Rohit has done very well did."
Regarding Rohit, the new opener of the Indian Test team, coach Rathore said, "He is the best player to play all three formats. It is the right decision to field him as an opener. The runs he has scored have been openers for a while." Has stopped the controversy.
He said, "If a player like him bats in the top order, it changes everything for the team, even when you are on tour. He is a very experienced player. I don't think his technique is tampered with. Need to do. They just have to make some mental changes. "
Regarding Rahane's innings, Rathore said, "Rahane showed amazing competition today. He plays extremely well whenever he bats with this competition."
