Can India pull off a heist at SA's stronghold?

India's reputation as world's best Test team took a big hit as the South Africa thrashed the visitors by what could be called a big if not massive 72-run margin in a chase of 208 to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

A local police official told Hindustan Times that Babulal succumbed to his injures on Tuesday morning. When the Indian bowlers bundled up South Africa's second innings before lunch on day 4, the team was in with a real chance. Winning the next two matches and sealing the series would be a huge claim to make.

"He's a quality player, he's done well in South Africa, all conditions actually away from home". "The success of our Test team is highly dependant on the fast bowlers That's why Lungi [Ngidi] has been brought in - we want to get a closer look at him". He followed it by saying, "Before the first Test no-one thought that he (Rahane) should be in the eleven and now suddenly people are looking at the other option".

The statement said the captives should have been handed over to police in line with procedures amid on-going attacks. But the military has insisted that there has been no wrongdoing by any security forces.

India have won just two Test matches on South African soil in 25 years of touring - in 2006-07 and 2010-11.

Pandya, too, would Have wanted to score a century in the first innings, and despite scoring 93, he failed to take his form forward in the second innings. Sitting here as a batsman, the first priority is to win games but if the ball takes the upper hand, so be it.

Meanwhile, Parthiv Patel and KL rahul could make it to India's playing XI, as the Men in Blue hope to level the series. I had a close realisation of this when we went to Australia and South Africa in the early '90s. The special feature of this practice session was that it did not include the players who played in the first Test.

"Conditions that we like are when we get the ball that spins as little as possible". Perhaps Kohli should stick to the left-right opening combination of Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay but Ajinkya Rahane definitely needs to be drafted ahead of Rohit Sharma.

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. If the pitch miraculously plays out like an Indian pitch, the batsmen should be okay, but if it does not, we have to expect only a marginal improvement in the way they adjust to the extra bounce. While his batting wasn't up to the mark, even the rest of the batsmen, barring an enterprising Hardik Pandya in the first innings, couldn't get going.

"It looks likely a really lively pitch". If not, we try and shape the team in other ways. You can't be changing and chopping players after every individual failure and a Test loss. Ishant Sharma is also a good bet keeping in mind the bouncy nature of the Centurion track.
