Vikram Rathour lauds Virat Kohli for being more disciplined, terms India’s batting as below par

India
skipper
Kohli
was
a
picture
of
patience
and
perseverance
in
his
well-crafted
79
but
South
Africa
gained
the
upper
hand
by
bowling
out
the
visitors
for
an
underwhelming
223
on
day
one
of
the
series
decider.

“There
was
never
a
concern
with
the
way
he
(Kohli)
was
batting,
I
mean
he
was
always
batting
well,
I
thought
as
a
batting
coach,
I
was
never
concerned
that
he
is
not
batting
well,
he
was
looking
very
good
in
the
nets,
he
was
looking
very
good
in
the
game
also,
he
was
getting
starts.

Test

on
day
1

“One
good
change
today,
he
was
more
disciplined,
I
agree
with
that,
so
he
really
looked
good,
really
good
solid
and
with
a
bit
of
(more)
luck,
he
could
have
converted
into
a
big
one,
but
I
am
happy
(with)
the
way
he
played,”
elaborated
Rathour
at
the
post
day
media
interaction.

Kohli
had
been
found
wanting
in
the
off-stump
corridor
heading
into
the
third
Test.
On
the
overall
batting
performance,
Rathour
did
not
sound
too
pleased.
“These
are
challenging
conditions,
not
easy
conditions
to
score
runs
in,
but
you
are
right,
we
are
below
par.
We
could
have
scored
50/60
more
runs,
that’s
what
we
were
at-least
expecting,”
Rathour
said.

According
to
the
batting
coach,
there
were
soft
dismissals
in
the
latter
part
of
the
innings
and
the
batters
could
have
done
a
better
job.
“Virat
played
a
phenomenal
innings…
Pujara
was
looking
really
good,
but
then
they
bowled
a
good
spell
in
the
morning,
the
conditions
were
overcast
and
they
were
challenging
(for
batting),
but
again
I
thought
there
were
some
soft
dismissals
in
the
latter
part
of
the
innings,
we
could
have
done
better
definitely,”
admitted
Rathour.

The
52-year-old
former
India
batter
also
said
that
they
would
hope
to
restrict
South
Africa
to
a
low
total
on
day
two.
“The
lesser
the
runs,
I
hope
it
will
be
an
equal
innings
and
they
won’t
get
a
big
lead,”
he
signed
off.
