Indian coach Ravi Shastri is surrounded by a storm of criticism after a Team India’s defeat in the Test series against South Africa. Star-studded Indian batting line-up fell like nine-pins against a fired-up bowling arsenal of Proteas.

India lost the second Test match by 135 runs, where Indian batsmen again failed to pull their sleeves up while chasing a record fourth-innings total at Centurion. India’s ever dependable Cheteshwar Pujara made a unique Indian record during the Test as he became the first ever Indian player to run-out twice in the same Test match.

First, he went back to the pavilion for a golden duck when he tried to steal a single on the very first ball of his innings. Afterwards, in the second essay, Parthiv Patel pushed him for a third run and an AB de Villiers’ throw found Pujara short of his crease by millimeters.

However, Coach Shastri has advised everyone to keep an eye on Pujara henceforth while posting a picture with his holding a cheetah. His caption reads “Don’t laugh like us. Watch my boy henceforth.”

His statement is giving a hint that Pujara may not look this sloppy again between the wickets. The final Test will commence in Johannesburg from January 24.
