India aware of issues in slip cordon - Pujara


At least three catches were put down at second slip in the first innings at the Kotla, and on all three occasions, a different fielder was stationed in that position. Speaking about Ashwin, Gavaskar then said: "There's intent but not much progress."Coming to the match, the Lankan batsmen showed great resolution and grit to bat out the day and secure a draw as the players ended play at 4:01pm - 35 minutes before the scheduled close of play - after both teams felt that the game was headed for a draw".

There are two areas where India don't seem to have a problem: first slip for spin and gully for quicks. Their partnership helped them to avoid the follow-on. What's troubling a team that has raised their fielding levels to a never-seen-before extent as far as India's standards are concerned?

"It's a hard question to answer as I don't know technically what is going wrong". Another thing, we have enough experience. All players standing in the slips are taking 50 to 100 catches. "So we are trying to improve ourselves, and eventually the results will come". He did play one shot too many, but as they say, fortune favours the courageous. But Pujara offers an explanation there, stating that injuries and unavailability of certain players have put India in such hard situations.

"I won't say they are just spinners, if you look at their wickets they have done a remarkable job". At the same time, there have been injuries. At the same time there have been injuries with someone like M Vijay, who used to be at first slip didn't, not playing for six months. So, we had to replace Vijay.

"We haven't taken many catches but we will definitely get better at it".

"Overall we have really bowled well in this Test match especially looking at the wicket".

There's also a case for Ajinkya Rahane's absence from the slip cordon against the pacers. But our fast bowlers bowled really well.

Many pundits believed that the solution to the slip catching could have been solved by putting in Ajinkya Rahane at the position. And the way he's fielding when the spinners are bowling, he is anyway at slips. "We don't want to disturb him from there". He is set, we can't keep on changing fielders. He said that no matter what, the Indian team is ought to be well prepared for the African safari, thanks to the all important series against Sri Lanka.

"We are having a chat about it and we will assign a few players who will be there throughout the series", said Pujara.
