"Shot Selection Left Much To Be Desired": Sachin Tendulkar On India's Defeat

New Delhi : Sachin Tendulkar pin-pointed the lacunae in the shot selection of Indian batters that led to their massive defeat against South Africa on Thursday in the first Test.

Throughout the second inning, Virat Kohli was the only batter who knew how to churn out runs on a surface, which proved too much for the rest of the batters.

Sachin took to X to congratulate the Proteas for their victory by an innings and 32 runs. He also hailed their pace bowling line-up, which exceeded expectations and showcased tremendous skill in the second innings.

‘While I initially felt the South African team would’ve been unhappy after the 1st innings, their pace attack surpassed expectations and showcased remarkable skill in the 2nd innings, in spite of the pitch becoming more favourable for batting as the match progressed. From whatever I watched, India’s shot selection left much to be desired.

Throughout the Test, only a few batters, namely Elgar, Jansen, Bedingham, @imVkohli and @klrahul truly seemed at ease with the bat, navigating the conditions with technique and poise,’ Sachin wrote on X.
