Virat dropped the catch again
Virat Kohli dropped the catch in the second innings as well. Ravichandran Ashwin’s ball took the edge of David Warner’s bat and went into the slip. It was an easy catch for Virat but he could not catch it. The ball went out after going into his hand. Although before that he had taken the catch of Usman Khawaja. The role of the slip fielder becomes very important on a turning pitch. But Virat continues to disappoint.
Fans remember Rahane
Ajinkya Rahane has been fielding in the slips for India in Tests over the years. His catching against spin bowlers was amazing. Rahane also holds the world record for taking the most 8 catches as a fielder in a Test match. He did this feat against Sri Lanka in the Galle Test in 2015. In this, 6 catches were on the ball of spinners only. He was dropped from the team last year and since then catches in the slips are also being dropped.
