Fast bowlers will do the damage in South Africa: Pujara

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

During the Hindu festival of Diwali in October, the country's Supreme Court outlawed the sale of fireworks in an effort to prevent the recurrence of a toxic fog that engulfed the city during last year's festival.

But De Silva thwarted a persistent Indian attack with his third Test hundred. The series win was a record equalling ninth for India which means Kohli, has now equalled former Australian captain Ricky Ponting's record of the most successive series wins as captain. Before this Test, only 11 points separated second-ranked Pujara from fifth-ranked Kohli. Only a 3-0 sweep against Sri Lanka would ensure that India reach 121 rating points and finish the year as No 1. Dilruwan Perera opened the innings as Sadeera Samarawickrama was injured and He was dropped on 16 by Shikhar Dhawan. First it was Shikhar Dhawan, late on Day Two, followed by Virat Kohli nearly immediately after, and finally Rohit Sharma on the third day. "In Sri Lanka, you won't get this much pollution", he said. Their partnership helped them to avoid the follow-on. "The thing is, in Sri Lanka we are not used that, so that's why we struggled (on) the first two days", said Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal.

The US embassy website on Wednesday showed concentrations of the smallest and most harmful airborne pollutants hit 234, better than a day earlier but still almost nine times the World Health Organization's safe limit.

"The intensity that he brings on the field to inspire his teammates is what stands out for me", Dravid said.

Interestingly, Sangakkara, who continues to hold that record, feels the 29-year-old Indian is bound to overtake him next year and better his own record a year later. At the same time, there have been injuries where openers have missed out. So we had to replace Vijay with someone. "We will look to win the series in South Africa", a smiling Pujara concluded by saying.

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".

The Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground was marred by severe pollution, with fast bowlers from both sides vomiting Tuesday amid thick smog. We have already started talking about that. "We fully support him to make a comeback". And the way he's fielding when the spinners are bowling, he is anyway at slips.

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

"We took a decision, a right decision that the boys who are playing Ranji Trophy should be allowed to play that". "We will be very well prepared before we head to South Africa". Our bowlers have done well, even as a team.
