When the second day of the Centurion Test between India and South Africa ended, the South African team had scored 256 runs at the loss of 5 wickets in their first innings and they had a lead of 11 runs over India’s score. It was over. On behalf of Africa, Dean Elgar returned to the pavilion after scoring unbeaten 140 runs at the end of the day’s play. At the same time, former head coach of the Indian team, Ravi Shastri, who is playing the role of commentary in this match, appeared angry with some decisions of Rohit Sharma’s captaincy.

Ravi Shastri did not seem happy with the decision to bowl to Shardul

When Rohit Sharma started the game after lunch on the second day, he handed over the responsibility of bowling to Shardul Thakur from one end and to Prasidh Krishna from the other end. Ravi Shastri, who was doing the commentary at that time, expressed surprise at the decision and said that in any order, these two (Shardul and Prasidh) would have been the last players to start bowling (after lunch). We had discussed this many times when I was the coach and often we decided to go with the two best bowlers at the beginning of the session. Meanwhile, another former Indian player Sanjay Manjrekar said that India clearly missed. This is something that Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma might have thought about during the break.

Prasidh has taken one wicket so far, Shardul failed

In the second day’s play, while Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj took 2-2 wickets in bowling for India, Prasidh Krishna also managed to take one wicket. Apart from this, if we talk about Shardul Thakur’s bowling, he has not achieved even a single success so far, giving away 57 runs in 12 overs of bowling.
