South Africa cashes in, 182-2 in 2nd test vs

Jasprit Bumrah

Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Parthiv Patel.

The skipper's reaction, though, was baffling to say the least: "It's amusing how things change in a matter of weeks, or just about five days".

India launched a late fightback against South Africa on day one of the second Test after Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla had scored half-centuries for the Proteas.

South Africa romped to a 72-run victory in the first test of the three-game series at Newlands in Cape Town on Monday, a match that effectively needed just three days to be completed with one lost to rain. We've asked for pace and bounce so hopefully we will get that. Take into consideration his record in Australia, New Zealand, England and South Africa in singularity, and this comes down considerably to 27.81 (11 Tests). He's probably been our most consistent and solid player away from home.

Calls for the inclusion of Ajinkya Rahane, known for his quiet approach, instead of fellow Mumbaikar Rohit Sharma have grown over the few days. "I think there is a bright future ahead for him so I want to start that journey off with him". I'm not saying that Ajinkya can not or will not start in this game. "Possibilities are all open at the moment and we shall decide after practice".

After the Indian batting failed the team on both occasions, some changes in the playing XI are obvious. "We might do something different also but there is definitely no need to panic".

But a look at the Centurion wicket yesterday suggests there will be much more in it for the batsmen than initially anticipated.

Salesforce.com (CRM) Downgraded to Hold at Vetr

"It looks likely a really lively pitch". He bowled at good pace and produced one searing spell at Trent Bridge but du Plessis has indicated he will only play as a fourth seamer, because he still has to polish his game. South Africa captain Faf du Plessis was unmoved at the other end as Pandya, again, played a role in the run out by returning the ball to wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel with both South Africa batsmen at the other end.

Kohli urged his batsmen not get surprised by the bounce.

It should be noted that South Africa had enjoyed a winning spree at Centurion like no other venue across this country with 17 wins and just two defeats. Here the bounce can be steep from length also.

Nevertheless they can draw confidence from the fact that they will not have to bat last on a surface that is already showing signs of deterioration as the Highveld heat takes its toll.

"My basic motto is not to get too excited after some success, or get too down when things are tough but take the confidence from the previous match and move forward", he said.

"It looks browner than I thought it would be". I have seen a lot of cricket matches where people who haven't been in contention to play the match, come in and get those wickets.
