Virat On Rahane-Pujara Selection: Virat Kohli said on Ajinkya Rahane-Cheteshwar Pujara – this is not my job, ask the selectors


Cape Town
Cheteshwar was questioning the selection of Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane since the Test series against New Zealand, but he was also supported by Team India in South Africa. Both these senior batsmen were fed in all the three Tests. However, they did not live up to the expectations once again. When the Indian team lost the Cape Town Test by 7 wickets, Virat Kohli, who came to the press conference, was asked questions on the selection of these two.

To this Virat Kohli said, ‘Don’t know about the future of Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara, but if they are selected in the team, I will continue to support them. What he has done for Team India over the years is phenomenal. He made a good partnership in the second test, due to which India was able to fight. As for the selection, it is not in my hands. That is the job of the selectors.

It is noteworthy that both the batsmen have not been able to score centuries for the last two years. Talking about the current series, Cheteshwar Pujara scored 124 runs at an average of 20.67 and Ajinkya Rahane scored 136 runs at an average of 22.67. He was preferred over Shreyas Iyer and Hanuma Vihari, who made their Test debuts with centuries against New Zealand. Let us inform that South Africa, chasing the target of 212 runs, won the match by losing just 3 wickets.

On the other hand, giving reasons for the defeat, Virat Kohl admitted that Team India lost both the matches due to poor batting. He said, ‘We were lagging behind in the series due to not doing well in batting. Can’t say anything other than that, as people talk about his height, pace and bounce, in all the matches he was able to get the most out of the wickets.
