Rohit Sharma's batting woes in South Africa

As Rohit Sharma's batting woes in South Africa continue, former SA captain Kepler Wessels has an explanation for it.

Wessels feels that Rohit struggles in South Africa because of footwork where he plants his front foot across to the off-side. "It doesn't affect him in India or Australia where ball doesn't seam but when there's seam and bounce like in SA, there's a problem."
