Sunil Gavaskar targets Team India's Cheteshwar Pujara, R Ashwin over fielding

New Delhi: While Indian cricket team is enjoying a fine run of form across formats under Virat Kohli, two of cricketers came under scrutiny from former India captain Sunil Gavaskar over their fielding on Day 5 of the third Test against Sri Lanka at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in New Delhi on Wednesday.

While the slip fielding in Test cricket remains a big concern ahead of the tough tour to South Africa, Gavaskar criticised Pujara and Ashwin over their fielding.




"He looks like a car that runs with a handbrake on," Gavaskar, who was commentating, said on Pujara as he chased a ball to the boundary rope.

However, Pujara was not the only one who received flak for his fielding effort on Wednesday. Gavaskar was equally critical of Ashwin’s efforts.

"There's intent but not much progress," chuckled Gavaskar.

There was, in fact, an incident when Ashwin’s fielding did not please Ravindra Jadeja as he could not stop a Roshan Silva drive and earned the Sri Lankan batsman a four on the final day of the Test.
