So many people wanted Pant to be dropped after last match and were up in arms when I stated he is a rare talent and a match winner. Only if our tail has an iota of brain we could have managed 30-40 more runs. Kohli in first innings and now Pant in second innings ran out of partners. But, brilliant 100 which may or may not be match winning as 211 in my opinion is atleast 40-50 short.

I don't blame Dravid. He is relatively new in his role. I blame selectors for keep selecting Pujara and Rahane. No spine at all and worst at their job.

Siraj in place of Ishanth. How come you forgot him ?
Siraj was injured last game.

He's really good with red ball. Has pace and accuracy. 

Oh yes Siraj, totally forgot him.

 

Good intent from SA, it's been a good series though!!

Didn't watch the SA innings and only read online about whatever transpired.

 

Usually I support Kohli and his antics but here I feel he is wrong. If he and Ashwin were miffed with DRS go and take it with the umpires and match referee. Their comments were absolutely uncalled for especially when Hawkeye is an independent product and nothing to do with the broadcaster. SA have been a gracious host and the team has played in such good spirit all series. I hope match referee do reprimand these guys although BCCI clout and good relations with SA board may save them. 

 

Also, KL Rahul should first start performing in crucial must win games rather than open his mouth against a whole country. If he is trying to imitate Kohli just cos he is Vice Captain then he is gonna fall flat very soon. Kohli and Ashwin atleast have numerous match winning contributions in a decade and are outspoken personality while KL has nothing to boost.

Match is in 70-30 SA favor but I am very disappointed by the behaviour of Indian team this time.

Kohli and gang should be punished for this behaviour, totally uncalled for and ridiculous sportsmanship, he should be angry on himself for playing two out of form players then on anyone else.

 

if we lose this series today it is absolutely because of stupid team selection, how many times will bowlers bail you out. Rahul also needs to put his head down and concentrate on his batting, both the openers were crap in this match.
