IND vs SA 3rd Test: The third match of the Test series is being played between India and South Africa at the Newlands Ground in Cape Town. In this decisive match, the Indian batsmen once again disappointed their fans while batting first. Apart from captain Virat Kohli, no other batsman could leave much of an impact with his bat. Batting in the best style, Virat Kohli scored 79 runs and took the team to a respectable score.

Meanwhile, Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar looked quite disappointed before the dismissal of Mayank Agarwal in the first innings of the third Test against South Africa on Tuesday. Commenting on the match, Gavaskar criticized Agarwal’s shot selection, claiming that he was facing issues with the swinging ball.

Team India’s opener Mayank Agarwal also got a lifeline on the score of zero when his catch was dropped, however, he failed to take advantage of it and went on to make 15 runs off Kagiso Rabada’s delivery.

“Agarwal is a really good player, especially when the ball is hitting the middle of his bat, but his habit of pushing the bat too much is making it difficult for him,” Gavaskar said during the third Test in Cape Town. He is having trouble in front of the swinging balls and even today we got to see it when he was caught at slips.

The great batsman further said that it is important for the batsmen to know how to adjust from one format to another. He said players should know how to make mental adjustments when changing gears from white-ball cricket to the longest format.
