We haven't fielded well: Pujara

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

"After the match ended, Pujara said, "[It is a] hard question to answer as I don't know technically what is going wrong. Gavaskar, who was covering the game as a commentator, first chose to take a potshot at Cheteshwar Pujara before taunting spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.

"We were expecting this wicket to deteriorate a bit more on day four and five; may be because of the weather, it was a flat wicket". First it was Shikhar Dhawan, late on Day Two, followed by Virat Kohli nearly immediately after, and finally Rohit Sharma on the third day. But as it turned out, the Sri Lankan batsmen, especially Dhananjaya de Silva and Roshen Silva, negated their attack easily. If you look at the entire home season, they have been the most hard bowlers for any opposition.

"This was a game where there wasn't much assistance". There was not much help for spinners. We just accept it. So, there are so many positives. "We wanted to win but it ended in a draw", he said.

India were very generous with their slip-catching in the Kotla Test. Pujara accepted the flaw but also revealed what the team is doing about it.

"We are having a chat about it (slip catchers), we will assign few players, will have players standing at the slips", the Saurashtra batsman told reporters at the post-match press conference here. "We will discuss when we reach SA but we are already talking about that", he added.

"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. At the same time, there have been injuries. At the same time there have been injuries where openers have missed out. So we had to replace him. "Overall, the Indian team has improved as fielding unit, but slip fielding is something we are still looking to improve", quoted Cheteshwar Pujara.

"He is one of India's best batsmen and he has scored a lot of runs, in india and even overseas". We fully support him, and I think he will make a comeback. He fared well at first slip, but the fortunes of the slip cordon on the whole didn't turn for the better.

He also took a dig at the Proteas' batting line-up. "All players standing in the slips are taking 50 to 100 catches during practice sessions". "So we are trying to improve ourselves, and eventually the results will come". "There are still some areas in which i want to improve". Following another fruitful series against South Africa, Pujara has swiftly turned his attention towards the upcoming tough tour of South Africa in January 2018. "We will be very well prepared before we head to South Africa". I have been to South Africa in 2010 and 2013. Many of our players were there is 2013. It will definitely help us. I think our fast bowlers will do the damage.

"The South African batting is not what it used to be at one time". The fielding did let the Indians down again, with Wriddhiman Saha missing an easy stumping of Dickwella, but more important was the lion-hearted effort of the Lankan batsmen.
