To be honest, we have not fielded well: Cheteshwar Pujara

Indian slip cordon was in a very generous miid against Sri Lanka

India has played some fantastic cricket in the last one year.

"If you look at the number of wickets [Ashwin and Jadeja] have taken, it is remarkable", said Pujara, in defence of his teammates. India were riding a massive wave of momentum and yet their slip fielders couldn't even catch a cold despite the bad Delhi air.

However, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar believes that there are still some slow movers in the team and he identified two such fielders on the fifth day of the third Test against Sri Lanka in New Delhi. I have been there a couple of times. Their partnership helped them to avoid the follow-on. "We have enough experience of being in South Africa. We will take a call on that when we reach there but here we needed to try out a few things". All players standing in the slips are taking 50 to 100 catches every day. "So we are trying to improve ourselves and eventually results will come", he added further.

Angelo Mathews returned to form with a gritty knock of 111 in the first innings, but only after Virat Kohli dropped him on six and then Rohit Sharma spilled one when he was on 98 - both at second slip. At the same time, there have been injuries. Someone like Murali Vijay, who used to be at first slip didn't play due to injury, he didn't play cricket for 6 months. So we had to replace Vijay with someone. So there have been occasions, where batsmen have got injured and we had to replace [the slip fielder] with some other player. The ultimate goal of any team is to win a Test match and when we play for the Indian team, its always about scoring runs and when it comes to test cricket we take it very seriously and we always try to win as many matches as we possibly can.

"Also our spinners, if I look at the wicket, they bowled really well", Pujara said, his defence for his bowlers seemed as impregnable as his batting.

"The fast bowling unit has been much better now and I think our fast bowlers will do the damage", Pujara added. "We fully support him to make a comeback". He is set, we can't keep on changing fielders. "When he's at gully, he knows the angles, he has the idea of where to stay when he starts fielding at gully", Pujara said.

But asked afterwards by reporters whether he would do so if invited, he replied with a grin: "Yeah, why not". He was the most-streamed artist of 2017 and has supported various good causes.

"We are having a chat about it [slip fielding woes] and we will assign a few players, throughout the away series".

"I think we (India) will be very well prepared before heading to South Africa", the Saurashtra batsman told reporters during the post-match press conference. South Africa will host India for three-match Test series so this be a rehearsal for them. Our bowlers have done well, even as a team. The series may well be decided by the fielding, especially catching. "South Africa batting, what it used to be and what it is now, there is a difference", he said.
