India aware of issues in slip cordon - Pujara

India aware of issues in slip cordon - Pujara

Dhananjaya, who retired hurt on 119 due to muscle stiffness, and Roshen (74 not out) held Sri Lanka steady over three sessions of play on the final day, after the visitors were set a huge 410 victory target late on day four.

Asked if Shaw is ready to play for India considering the success he has at the First-Class level, Dravid said: "I don't want to make that moment".

The 29-year-old, who stroked 243 and followed with 50 in the drawn third Test against the islanders, entered the series in sixth position but has leapfrogged David Warner, Cheteshwar Pujara, Kane Williamson and Joe Root after the stupendous run which saw him average 152.50.

"We played really good cricket throughout the season, we have done really well as a team, our batsmen have scored runs. We had to trust playing him at No 3 and he took this opportunity with both hands", he said.

"To be honest, we did not field well". 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.




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

"But they played well, they showed composure and confidence", added the batsman who was given the man-of-the-match and man-of-the-series awards. Tendulkar had a higher run-share than Kohli in 33 out of 62 Test matches. "We have already started talking about the things we need to work on".

"Talking about 2017, it has been a fantastic year, I still could have done better at times I feel that, there is always a scope for improvement", Pujara said. So that experience will definitely help us. Numerous players in this team were on the 2013 tour. "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.

I don't think that will last long the way @imVkohli is batting. Kohli explained the rationale behind him asking the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for a break ahead of the South Africa series. "That was something I always hesitated to do but this made me realise that you can push the game forward even in Test cricket", Kohli said after the match.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli praised the Sri Lankan batsman for digging their heels in on a wearing pitch. They are Kohli, Don Bradman (806 against South Africa in 1931-32) and Mohammad Yousuf (665 against West Indies in 2006-07) The previous highest tally for an India batsman in a series playing five or fewer innings is 526 by Vinoo Mankad against New Zealand in 1955-56.
