New Delhi: After being successful in leveling the current series against India England In Visakhapatnamformer fast bowler zaheer khan Doubts expressed on the batting of the host country.
with the exception of Shubman Gill And Yashasvi JaiswalIndia's batsmen found it difficult on a surface that ultimately helped them.
Jaiswal was the only player who scored a remarkable 209 runs in the first two days when the ball was not spinning and came to bat well.
When the pitch started troubling the batsmen, Shubman accepted the challenge of scoring his third Test century.
Zaheer Khan analyzed India's batting performance while speaking on 'Match Center Live' at the end of the second Test against England in Visakhapatnam on Monday.

And I think Rohit Was able to bring out the individual performances of the players. There are some concerns when you look at the team – batting is something they will talk about because in these conditions, on this kind of surface, we have seen India perform better. You look at England's second innings, there is only one half-century and they still managed to get close to 300. This is what collective effort can do. Zaheer said, we have seen two brilliant innings – Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill, but there is still a lot of work to be done with the bat.
In the bowling department, the choice of Ravichandran Ashwin And Jasprit Bumrah He rose to the occasion and created amazing magic with the ball.
Zaheer lauded Rohit's role as a captain in India's success with the ball and said, “On the bowling front too, you had the talent of Jasprit Bumrah. On a surface like this, you feel your spinners Was under pressure many times.” And because of this he needed the help of the batsmen. So, to control all these factors – that's where the captain needs to play the role, and Rohit has been brilliant when it comes to all these factors and situations.”
The third Test of the series will start from February 15 in Rajkot.
