LOL Pujara isn't injured enough not to bat, means they tried to give Rohit a chance and he failed miserably, gotta love it.

Gotta say each replay of that Rohit dismissal just makes that defensive technique look even worse.

In rohits defense south africa set a field for a bouncer and vijay had just gotten out to a bouncer. Morkel then bowled it full, so like most batsmen his wieght was on the backfoot and he also did not get forward enough, so for me it's briliant planning and bowling and not just poor batting

That is the oldest plan in cricket. If you are not good enough you are Raina.

Time for Rahul Dravid's son to replace him.
Yep.

Big fan of Rohit, but he has been given enough chances. India have alternatives that deserve a chance ahead of him and KL is the most obvious one.

Let Rohit focus on gunning it in white ball cricket.

Yea being stuck on the backfoot for your first ball is just terrible, terrible batting.

Pujara out there now anyways. Dumb idea to send Rohit out. PEWS tasting it hard I hope.

Man these commentators

"Clever bowling there, bowling one that comes in with the angle..."

*Replays show it to be the stock offbreak, exactly the same as the ball previously, pitching and turning away*

"Oh looks like it actually turned a bit..."

It's about time others get a shot imo. I still think Rohit can cut it at this level but there are others who can as well. If he's going to improve his game he's going to have to do it on his own time.

HarishVaranasi: "@Divy Rohit was hit by a Jaffa, don't think even one among the fab 4, let alone Rahane or Pujara would have survived that Monster from Morkel first ball.
OMG the replays showed it was literally a straight ball. Wtf man.

It's like all these people are watching a different game to what I am. Offbreaks are arm balls and straight balls are jaffas. I don't get it.
