India took Test cricket seriously under Virat Kohli: Graeme Smith
The former South African skipper Graeme Smith has reckoned that the Indian cricket team took the longest format of the game quite seriously during the leadership of Virat Kohli.
While speaking on Sky Sports, the former Proteas skipper said, "With Test cricket, it’s just iconic nations or the big cricketing nations that are contributing to Test cricket at the moment. I think it’s fantastic especially under Virat Kohli that India took Test cricket seriously.
They lead the way with that. But as long as we’ve got competitive teams, you’re not going to have 10, 11, 12, 13, or 14 competitive teams. You might only be down to five or six nations that play Test cricket at this level," was quoted as saying by CricTracker.
"People also look at those three ODIs wrong. Yes, South Africa hasn’t handled ODI cricket as well and it should never be in this position. But for South Africa to be in Australia out of their key part of the summer financially is a huge stress for them.
It’s like asking England not to play during your summer. The commitment that South African cricket made to go for the three Test matches is good for the game. It’s something that won’t happen often," he added.
"For four weeks of an entire year, the priority will be the league. I feel that if we hadn’t done this South African cricket could have probably lost eight to ten players to this UAE league," he further added.
Besides, during the game, Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan engaged in an unwanted mix-up in the 43rd over of game which cost Ishan Kishan to return to the dressing room. scoring just 50 runs.
