Let's have a look at 4 decisions taken by Virat in the 2nd India-South Africa Test that defy rationality.
After losing the second Test and the three-match series, Virat Kohli lost his cool as well in the post-match press meet where he appeared more uncomfortable than some of his batsmen did in the middle against South Africa's pacemen.
Pujara had also been run out first ball in the first innings and has now been involved in six of India's last eight run-outs in tests. Yes, the conditions were not in our favour, but the conditions were there and we still needed to win.
"We as a team don't think of what the opinion going around is, and I've clarified that before also".
Du Plessis says the never-say-die attitude from his players in hard conditions was particularly pleasing, along with the collective team effort from both the batsmen and bowlers and in the field.
Kohli: But if we had won this, was this the best XI?
"This team is capable of doing things no other Indian team has done before", he said, referring to the upcoming 12-Test overseas cycle in South Africa, England and Australia.
"What is the best 11?" I thought we did that brilliantly, there were times where India put us under pressure, and every single time we responded with huge character.
Debutant Ngidi then picked up two wickets in quick succession; first Hardik Pandya played a terrible shot, reaching for a wide ball, that he edged with De Kock taken a good one-handed catch and then Ravi Ashwin was caught behind for just three. Mohammed Shami, who took all the three wickets to fall in the first session, bowled only one over in that extended middle session; R Ashwin, who had a nice patch of rough to attack from the end Pavilion End, got five.
"I'm here to answer your questions, not to fight with you".

Rohingya repatriation timeline set
Bangladesh has also expressed their interest that Myanmar would ensure the Rohingyas do not enter the country again. He ruled out Myanmar's stated deadline of next week for starting Rohingya repatriation as "not possible".
India had not anticipated the kind of pitch they got here at SuperSport Park, conditions with which they are very familiar.
As for India's second innings, the only decent contribution came from batsman Rohit Sharma, who scored 47. We certainly don't sit here and say, 'oh if you fail in one game you are not good enough to be at this level or...' Once the team loses.
"We should try to fight it out".
India faltered in an away Test yet again following a thrashing at the hands of South Africa by 135 runs.
After this defeat, the last Test of the series has not much significance and India have nothing but pride to play for. So you tell me the best XI and we'll play that.
Kohli: How many have we won?
"I was very concerned when I got here, leading up to the Test match". That is why we have got such a big squad.
Now, it was the South African media's turn to talk about the playing XI. And with the tantalising prospect of clean-sweeping the world's No. 1 team in sight, he said he was likely to go in with the strongest possible XI, rather than looking to give opportunities to players who hadn't yet played a game.
