Team India and South Africa are playing test series in which India won their first match and in the second match South Africa beat India under the captaincy of KL Rahul.
The Indian team has to face defeat after 29 years at Wonders Stadium in Johannesburg. On the other hand, under the captaincy of Dean Elgar, the hosts have made history and leveled the series 1-1.
This defeat of India in the absence of Virat Kohli is really disappointing. However, after losing this match, KL Rahul said something about this loss.
South African players did a great job against team India
Today the Indian team is in a bad position when it comes to disputes, performances, etc. We have better players but they are all busy with their injuries.
Speaking on the presentation of the match after the crushing defeat in the Johannesburg Test, KL Rahul said:
“In every test match we play, our only goal is to win. We are the type of team where we try to win every game. It was not so easy to score 122 runs on the fourth day and achieve this goal. Because there was a double rebound on the field but, like I said, the South African hitters were hitting very well. India's score in the first innings was 202 very low runs. There should have been at least 50-60 more runs at this score. Through which we could pressure them. "
Bowlers and batsmen play a major role in team India's defeat
In fact, after the loss in the Johannesburg test match, both teams have the advantage in the series.
At the same time, this will be a great challenge for the Indian team because India has yet to win the series on African soil.
Speaking of the second Test match, aside from Ajinkya Rahane, Pujara and Vihari, not a single batter had played a particularly good inning in the second inning.
On the other hand, top fast pitchers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj were also very disappointing in matchday four.
Both bowlers were unable to take windows. Due to Siraj's injury, the India team clearly missed the fourth pitcher. This also affected the match and India lost this match.
We have Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav as great bowlers for Team India, but they are stuck on the bench this season.
