IND vs SA |  KL Rahul did his best with plans and field placements in Johannesburg test, says Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli felt that KL Rahul did their best while leading the team in planning and field placement in the Johannesburg test after India lost the game by seven wickets. The series is leveled at 1-1 and India is aiming for its first victory in the Test series in South Africa.

India lost the second test of the three-game series to South Africa by seven wickets and the series was tied at 1-1. Virat Kohli was missing the match due to a back injury and therefore KL Rahul led the camp in his absence. Virat Kohli has now recovered from his injury and will return to the squad in the third test. Kohli felt that KL Rahul did their best with plans and field placements to secure breakthroughs in the second inning.

“He (Rahul) handled it in a balanced way,” Kohli said Monday on the eve of the series decision maker. “What I saw from his plans and his field placements was that he did his best to get wickets and breakthroughs in the second round. But the situation was like Africa of the South played well to chase the races. I don’t think much could have done. “

Rahul was previously captain of the Punjab Kings in the IPL. He was also formidable with the bat, scoring 670 points in 14 games in 2020 with an average of 55.83. Kohli revealed that he would have taken a different approach when he captained the game, but also pointed out that everyone has a different style of captain.

“Everyone has different styles in the harbor master’s office. I would have done a little differently too, but the intention would have been to get the wickets. I think he worked in a balanced way, ”Kohli said.

Virat Kohli’s diving form is a matter of concern for the team. Kohli hasn’t been able to score big even after starting in the last few matches. He’s averaged just 26.08 in 14 tests since the start of 2020. Kohli said he didn’t need to prove anything to anyone and was at peace with the way he played.

“It has happened several times in my career. England in 2014 was one of them. But I don’t look at myself through the lens that the outside world sees me. The standards we are talking about today were set by myself. In sport sometimes things don’t go the way you want them to. But I was part of important partnerships (at batting) when the team needed me, “he said. concluded.

“I’m at peace with the way I play and what I’m capable of doing for the team when there is a tricky scenario. I have nothing else to worry about. I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. “
