    This was bound to happen under Virat Kohli captaincy just recall what happened when Shikar Dhawan was rebuked in public by Virat Kohli for creating ruckus about batting position.

      A very good decision, the way he started the 2nd innings is pathetic and reason for the collapse of the team. he was playing like a newcomer to the time and behaved like he is under pressure.

        Oh la la , that means we have to see another mediocre performance from rohit. Pujara is definitely playing inspite of the politics of not letting him in.
