The Proteas bowlers ran roughshod over the famed Indian batting that has received much flak in the aftermath of its slipshod showing that saw the team surrender the series meekly. Like every other analyst, Sandhu too blamed the Indian batsmen for their failure to adapt to the testing conditions. He didn’t mince his words on the close-in catching either. “It’s in conditions like South Africa, England and Australia that a batsman from the sub-continent faces his toughest challenge. For a batsman to be considered great, it’s imperative that he does well overseas. A lot more was expected from our batsmen, but they failed miserably. The catching in the slip cordon also leaves a lot to be desired and this has been the trend for quite some time now,” lamented Sandhu.
