Virat Kohli refrains from discussing Pujara, Rahane future after Test series loss in South Africa

When Indian skipper Virat Kohli was asked about the future of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, he could not defend them with confidence and put the ball in the selectors’ court in this regard. Pujara and Rahane failed in five out of six innings and could not contribute significantly throughout the year.

He is in danger of being dropped from the team after the 1-2 loss in the series against South Africa. When asked about Pujara and Rahane at the post-match press conference, Kohli said, “I can’t talk here about what is going to happen in the future. I am not sitting here to discuss it.” You should talk to the selectors on this. It’s not my job.”

He said, “I will say again as I have said before, we will continue to support Cheteshwar and Ajinkya because the kind of players they are, they have done well for India over the years in Test cricket. In Johannesburg He played an important innings. We recognize such performances as a team.”

“What the selectors decide, I obviously won’t sit here and comment,” Kohli said.
