SA vs IND: Sanjay Manjrekar points out the ‘standout player’ for India in the ODI series against South Africa | Cricket
The article discusses former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar’s views on potential changes in the Indian cricket team for the second Test against South Africa. Manjrekar suggests giving Mukesh Kumar a chance but expresses concern about the fairness of dropping Prasidh Krishna after just one game. He contrasts the current management’s approach, emphasizing a fair run for players, with the previous era led by Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri, which he characterizes as “trigger-happy” in making swift changes.
The ex-cricketer notes Prasidh Krishna’s unique bowling style, describing it as not reliant on hitting the deck hard but rather utilizing height and producing floaty deliveries. He speculates on the current management’s potential willingness to make changes, acknowledging the contrasting ruthlessness of Kohli and Shastri.
The article also touches on India’s recent defeat in the first Test against South Africa, ending their hopes of winning the series. It highlights India’s struggle against South Africa’s pace attack and mentions Virat Kohli’s aggressive 76 in the second innings. The upcoming second Test in Cape Town is crucial for India to salvage a share of honors in the two-match series.
