Sri Lanka complains to ICC about pollution in Delhi during final Test

Despite boasting of an outstanding ground fielding unit India's slip catching has been far from assured

Despite boasting of an outstanding ground fielding unit India's slip catching has been far from assured

Overcast conditions in Kolkata for the first Test allowed the likes of Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to take advantage of the green strip on offer at Eden Gardens, but the remaining two games, in Nagpur and New Delhi, had very little to offer to the pacers. "That was something I always hesitated to do but this made me realise that you can push the game forward even in Test cricket", Kohli said after the match. Openers have missed out, someone like [M] Vijay who used to field at first slip, he had an injury and he didn't play for about six months. "We do check the weather before hosting matches in places like Delhi, the NCR, and western UP", Choudhary had told reporters. So, we are trying to figure out options and we will definitely get better. "I like to play ODIs because I know I can do far better", he said.

Pujara said the team was well prepared for South Africa in January. But after some time we realised it would not go away by talking.

"The intensity that he brings on the field to inspire his teammates is what stands out for me", said Dravid when asked what separates Kohli from the others. We will also discuss that when we reach South Africa. All players standing in the slips are taking 50 to 100 catches.

With India experimenting with various players in the slip cordon during the home season, Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara on Wednesday said the team will finally zero in on a settled unit during their overseas tours, starting with the visit to South Africa later this month. We picked him after the West Indies A team tour as he had played some good inningsthere. We have enough experience being in South Africa, that will help us.

There are two areas where India don't seem to have a problem: first slip for spin and gully for quicks.

The Google/Alphabet company is keen to launch "Remix" in March, but is reliant on getting these licensing deals over the line. Music is one of the most popular genres of video on YouTube, which attracts more than a billion users a month.

"When we're talking about defining a fielding position, Ajinkya [Rahane] has been fielding at gully for quite a long time", Pujara said. "So, Pujara has a very important role to play", he said. And the way he's fielding when the spinners are bowling, he is anyway at slips.

Also, the catches come about waist high in South Africa, as compared to ankle high in the subcontinent.
