India vs South Africa: It's advantage South Africa !
Virat Kohli got a start in the second innings but was unable to convert it into a substantial contribution
13 January, 2018, 05:22
In two Tests in South Africa he averages 69.66 (209 runs). If India has to taste victory, the likes of Rohith Sharma and Virat Kohli, who are in sublime form, have to inevitably spend lot of time at the crease. Even if I lost this game I would have been very disappointed, but the way this Test match was played was remarkable. Now, dropping Rohit after his failure in just one match will be unfair to him.
According to a TOI report, Karnataka opener KL Rahul will return to the playing eleven at the centurion for second Test match starting on Saturday.
"It is amusing how things change in matter of weeks or maybe in just about five days. We certainly don't go on opinions that are created outside, and talk of the town and all those sort of things", Kohli's sarcasm at the pre-match conference was not lost on anyone. Google was your best friend as you tried to find out basic information about the players they went up against.
The Indian skipper emphasised that team selection was less about individuals but more about "finding the right balance".
He (Rahane) is a quality player. He has done well in South Africa, in all conditions actually away from home. In spite of Kohli justifying this faux pas, it is somewhat of a suicidal move because although Sharma is in the form of his life, Rahane has proven his credentials in nearly every overseas tour he has been part of. This of course is unlike Rohit-the-ODI-warrior, the very player that makes Kohli take a punt on him in Test matches, again and again.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma's inclusion in place of vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has raised much debate. On a positive side, the Indian team has always shown that extra aggression under Virat Kohli's captaincy and if that aggression is displayed again here, I must say India can send jitter waves to the South African dressing room.

"Whether you are playing five or six batsmen‚ you still need to apply yourself well".
"As far as the opening combination goes, we will decide today at the end of practice what is it that we are going to go within this game. You can not expect to change the true nature of the wicket", he smiles. Bumrah wasted little time in producing a beauty that extracted South African skipper Faf du Plessis for a duck - the ball sat up to surprise the batsman - and then found the edge of Quinton de Kock's bat to provide Wriddhiman Saha his eighth dismissal of the Test. It happens to be one of the smaller grounds anywhere in the world, but try picturising the length and breadth of it when you're standing here in the middle of the field. It was a hindrance even in a highly-successful home season.
The difference was Laxman, who crafted a sublime second-innings 96 on a pitch where no one else on either side went past 40. We want to plug all those game.
