IND vs SA 2021: “Hopefully Virat Kohli’s drought of the century will break in this match”

Harbhajan Singh is the hope of the Indian test captain Virat kohli scored his 71st international hundredth in the third test against South Africa in Cape Town.

The recently retired off-spinner player, while previewing the series decider, said India should strive for a “perfect match”. According to him, this will see Kohli break through his two-year international drought of the century, with Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane convert their starts into hundreds and two spinners take care of the rest.

Harbhajan Singh speak in a video on his YouTube channel:

“Virat Kohli will be back in this Test. I hope his drought of the century breaks in this match, it’s been a while since we’ve seen a hundred things from him. Hopefully. that next to him, Pujara, Rahane and other senior players will show themselves. maybe again. They have scored 50s but I would expect them to translate that into centuries.”

He added:

“Once we do 350-400 runs and if we have two gyros playing there, which I assume because they should, then India can completely dominate. in good form, Mayank is getting off to a good start but can’t I hope India will play this as a perfect match.”

India played only one spinner – Ravichandran Ashwin – in the first two Tests, a pattern most teams followed and in the sea and sea conditions in South Africa. However, Cape Town’s Newlands are said to have one of the best turnaround conditions in the country, which may prompt India to rethink their strategy.

In that case, India will have to choose between Jayant Yadav off-spinner and Hanuma Vihari part-time option for the second spinner slot.

“Pujara and Rahane should not worry about failing” – Harbhajan Singh

Finally, a glimpse of Kohli, who is appreciating the efforts of both Pujara and Rahane.

Harbhajan Singh also feels Pujara and Rahane’s half-century in the Previous Test has allayed doubts about their abilities. He feels the duo should now play without worrying about being left out for a while.

Harbhajan Singh said on this matter:

“Doubts about Pujara and Rahane’s choice have eased a bit as both have fought brilliantly for their half-century. They can’t turn it into a century but because these are important knocks. , I feel they have cleared the way forward a bit and shouldn’t have worried about being dropped… Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, both are high level players and it feels good to be level players. Go ahead and perform.”

As for the ongoing debate about Rishabh Pant, Harbhajan Singh commented that “positive intention” is not all about stepping out and scoring boundaries, it can be expressed in other aspects as well. of polishing. He hopes head coach Rahul Dravid will talk to his hitter and choose his shot right.

Harbhajan Singh says:

“I understand that positive intent is something different. That doesn’t mean you need to go out and play shots. You can also defend and run between goals with positive intent. That perception can be positive too. If you go and try to hit those shots and get out then people will definitely talk. But I still want to see him get more opportunities because of him. is the right guy, who will win the game whenever he plays well. I feel Rahul Dravid should talk to him about his hitting style and shot selection.”
