Cheteshwar Pujara not sure about what's going wrong with India's slip catching

Dilruwan Perera opened the innings as Sadeera Samarawickrama was injured and He was dropped on 16 by Shikhar Dhawan.

Another thing to notice is that all the catches were dropped by different fielders but at the same fielding position. Speaking about Ashwin, Gavaskar then said: "There's intent but not much progress."Coming to the match, the Lankan batsmen showed great resolution and grit to bat out the day and secure a draw as the players ended play at 4:01pm - 35 minutes before the scheduled close of play - after both teams felt that the game was headed for a draw".

India's ninth consecutive Test series triumph puts the world number one into an elite club which also includes Australia and England. Mathews eventually made 111 off 268, paving the way for Sri Lanka to avoid the follow on. "I don't know technically what is going wrong". I do agree that we haven't taken enough catches but we are working hard. "He's an all-round cricketer, and once he gets a 50 or more, he will get his confidence back and will be a very useful player in South Africa". Numerous players in this team were on the 2013 tour. But Pujara offers an explanation there, stating that injuries and unavailability of certain players have put India in such hard situations. "To be honest, we haven't fielded well and I will accept that", he said when asked about the lack of improvement in the cordon. At the same time, there have been injuries where openers have missed out. So, we had to replace Vijay. We'll also discuss the issue when we get there. So, we are trying to figure out options and we will definitely get better. "Overall, the Indian team has improved as fielding unit, but slip fielding is something we are still looking to improve", quoted Cheteshwar Pujara. I think our fast bowlers will do the damage.

"When we're talking about defining a fielding position, Ajinkya [Rahane] has been fielding at gully for quite a long time". "We don't want to disturb him from there". Commenting on the fielding woes, Cheteshwar Pujara noted that the seasoned slip fielders had been out of action and hence had to be replaced. He is set, we can't keep on changing fielders.
