India aware of issues in slip cordon - Pujara

Pujara admitted India were expecting more wear and tear on the surface on the last two days.

"Obviously, we have played good cricket throughout the season". Let's see what happens when we go to South Africa.

If so many players were tried in the slip cordon, there was a big question that why does not Ajinkya Rahane, who is in the slips for the spinners, tried for the fast bowlers.

India have picked five fast bowlers - Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and preferred Jasprit Bumrah over chinaman Kuldeep Yadav for the tour.

In general, more thrust is placed on most recent actions by assigning higher weights to it than those assigned to past movements. Over the last several years, GE pursued an aggressive financial policy that contributed to the weakening of its credit profile.

"Talking about 2017, it has been a fantastic year, I still could have done better at times I feel that, there is always a scope for improvement", Pujara said. "They are the most hard bowlers for any opposition to face", Pujara added. "All players standing in the slips are taking 50 to 100 catches during practice sessions". Virat Kohli's men have not lost a Test series since 2015 with their victories coming against Sri Lanka (thrice, 2-1, 3-0, 1-0), South Africa (3-0), West Indies (2-0), Bangladesh (1-0), England (4-0), New Zealand (3-0) and Australia (2-1).

"We are having a chat about the slip fielding issue". "There are still some areas in which i want to improve". "At the same time, there have been injuries where openers have missed out, someone like M Vijay, who used to be at first slip didn't play due to injury, he didn't play cricket for six months".

"Overall we have really bowled well in this Test match especially looking at the wicket. We wanted to win, but it ended in draw". "So we are trying to improve ourselves, and eventually the results will come". So we had to replace Vijay with someone else.

"We haven't taken many catches but we will definitely get better at it". Another thing, we have enough experience. South Africa also have not played a pink-ball Test and the one against Zimbabwe will be their first. He further added that the team management is holding discussions to fit in certain players in the certain regions on the field in the upcoming assignments. 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". The batsmen are scoring runs. Technically, I really don't need to tell him what he has to do. He knows. He is a hard worker, he puts in lot of effort in his batting, fielding and fitness. "Once he gets a fifty or more, he will get his confidence back and he will be a very useful player in South Africa". South Africa will host India for three-match Test series so this be a rehearsal for them.
