Trailing 0-2, India hope to avoid a whitewash at The Wanderers in the last match of the Test rubber from January 24.
"We did, we had our moments in both the Test matches and we looked like the No 1 team when we bowled out South Africa for a 130", Shastri said here on Monday.
But in future, the option of including more practice sessions in the schedule before overseas tours maybe considered. In tough conditions like these where there is not much between the two teams, you can not afford to give away wickets like that. Ideally we shouldnt have to fight back (at home), but we fought back and we did well. "The conditions will once again be different and the only chance is if Indian batsmen reel themselves in and play more conservatively to stay-in at the crease".
"In hindsight I would say another ten days of practice here would have made a difference. You tell me the best 11 and we will play that", the skipper went on. While addressing a press conference on Friday, he asked the reporters, "How you can draw a Test match is by giving less runs and by scoring runs". "But I am sure henceforth in future, when the itineraries are made, that will be taken into account", he added. The only series they lost in unfamiliar conditions in the last decade or so was to India when Hashim Amla-captained team was mauled 0-3 in a four-Test series in 2015. MS Dhoni said that once the team starts to score more runs they would start winning. "We have had equal opportunities to win in both games, and that's the positive we can take out of it". So when you believe you have a chance to win then you look forward to a Test match. Sticking to an earlier defence by captain Kohli, Shastri said it was a team management decision that had to be stuck to. "You see which player can adapt to certain conditions quicker than the other". We don't sit here and say if you will fail in one game, you are not good enough to be at this level.
"When there are choices that will always be the case". Rohit played, he didn't do well, you are asking me Ajinkya didn't play.
