Experts were intrigued by some of Rahul’s captaincy moves.

Kaneria claimed that KL Rahul should not be held responsible for the team’s defeat in Johannesburg.

Kaneria criticized Kohli and Dravid for not helping Rahul.

Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli should have helped Rahul out of the dressing room on the fourth day of the recently finished second Test, according to the former Pakistan spinner.

The Proteas won the second Test against India by seven wickets at the Wanderers in Johannesburg, thanks in large part to captain Dean Elgar’s unbeaten 96. In the absence of Virat Kohli, who was sidelined with an upper back spasm, KL Rahul led India in the second Test. Ex-Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria said that Rahul cannot be held responsible for the loss because he was the first Test captain in his career to take charge of the squad.

According to Kaneria, on the fourth day of the just-finished second Test, Kohli and head coach Rahul Dravid should have assisted Rahul from the dressing room.

“In spite of their disadvantage, India should have had South Africa work hard for their runs while being on the back foot. That was not the case, and they went on to score the final runs with ease. The bowling and the bowling changes weren’t good at this match. When it comes to KL Rahul, you can’t be too harsh on him because it was his first time captaining the team. However, Virat Kohli and Rahul Dravid’s thought tank should have provided guidance on the bowling alterations “In a video, he posted to his YouTube page, Kaneria made this statement.

Ravichandran Ashwin, he added, was not utilized on time and was only inserted when there were only a few runs left. The 41-year-old said that the Indian think tank should have requested the pacers to bowl in short bursts.

“Fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj should have been instructed to bowl in shorter spells. When Ashwin was deployed, there were only 11 runs left in the game. Shami and Bumrah threw away too many runs in their batting partnership. Siraj was a victim of the same thing. patience is the key to success in test cricket “he said.

It will be extremely difficult for India to recover in the third and final Test, according to Kaneria, who lauded the South African players for their effort.

The third and final Test will be held at the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town from January 11-15, with the series tied at 1-1.
