The Indian dressing room was divided into two groups, says Danish Kanaria


The hosts, South Africa defeated the visiting team, India in both the ODIs they played. India is struggling to score runs on the board in the absence of Rohit Sharma who is named as all-time skipper of Team India.

Once again, it was Shardul Thakur who played his role very well in the first two matches, having scored an unbeaten fifty in the first One-day which was followed by an unbeaten 40 in the previous game.

Moreover. the wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant also performed well in the last game against the Proteas and helped his team to post a decent total on the board.

Coming to the bowling department, Bhvneshwar Kumar was seen struggling to give the breakthrough for his side in both the games he played. Notably, he went expensive in the previous match whereas Jasprit Bumrah and Shardul Thakur have tried their level best to stick in the game.

Kohli wasn't in the same mood as he used to be: Danish Kanaria

Ind vs Sa - Virat Kohli

After getting defeated by the hosts in the three-match Test series, the former Pakistan cricketer Danish Kanaria has shared his thoughts and views on his YouTube channel.

He claimed that the Indian team has split into two groups in the dressing room with the stand-in skipper KL Rahul on one end and the former skipper Virat Kohli on the other side. "We saw that the Indian dressing room was divided into two groups.

KL Rahul and Virat Kohli were sitting apart. Also, Kohli wasn't in the same mood as he used to be when he was the captain. But he's a team man and will come back stronger," Danish Kanaria said on his YouTube channel.

"After losing the Test series, India would be eager to redeem them and clinch the ODI rubber. But Rahul hasn't shown that spark until now. He had led in the Test series but wasn't able to lift the team to break the South African partnership.

At one stage, it didn't look like the Proteas would put up 296 on the scoreboard. Lack of intensity from the Indian team helped the opposition in scoring such a total. There were also fielding lapses from the visitors," Kanaria added.

"Rahul needs to lift up captaincy and batting as well. He needs to lift the team. Also, Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave away many runs against South Africa, and the R Ashwin- Yuzvendra Chahal pair didn't look effective like the Kuldeep Yadav-Chahal duo.

India didn't use Venkatesh Iyer's bowling services too. The next ODI will be played at the same venue and India needs to learn from its mistakes. Their intensity was poor in the series opener," and signed off.
