India can't just chop-and-change in every game, suggests Sourav Ganguly

Following India's 72-run defeat at the hands of South Africa at Cape Town, former captain Sourav Ganguly says that Virat Kohli-led side will not make any drastic changes for the second Test at Centurion.

Now in the top three batsmen across all three formats of the game according to the International Cricket Council rankings, Kohli is a national icon in India.

"He was probably drunk and immolated himself while watching the match after Kohli's dismissal".

Rohit, Dhawan and the limits of 'current form'

Rohit showed good temperament during the first innings and saw off the first hour of the second day's play but was trapped plumb in front of his wickets for a painstaking 11 from 59 balls. Certainly, South African skipper Faf du Plessis had expressed surprise at the omission of both Rahane and Ishant, with Rohit Sharma (21 runs in two innings) and Jasprit Bumrah (4-112 in two innings) playing instead.

Decision to drop Rahane was bold but it backfired.

"These things can always be looked at in hindsight - thinking what if or what if not".

NBC's Super Bowl LII coverage: Pink, the National Anthem, and kneeling players
But criticism against the National Football League for the anthem protests has risen while viewer ratings have dropped. For the Super Bowl, on February 4, NBC expects to score a single-day revenue record for any media company, he said.

The 45-year-old also notified the changes he expects in the team for the second Test match to be played on January 13 in Centurion, "I would actually play five bowlers and play KL Rahul in place of Shikhar Dhawan". "Hardik Pandya came good with the bat and India should persist with him". The wicket in Centurion will be quick as well.

South Africa were quite dominant when it came to their bowling performance in the Cape Town Test, but Dale Steyn's injury was a big blow to the hosts.

But Ganguly also insisted that he will give Rohit another chance in the middle-order. Rahul because he has done well in overseas conditions.

Parts of Highway 101 in the area remained closed, swamped by debris flows that slid down fire-scarred mountains in the area. In an interview with ABC News the following day, Farrell said: "The scariest thing was the sound".

Indeed, after a successful Test series against the Sri Lankans, Rohit had pushed his case even further when he hit an unprecedented third career double-century in one-day internationals, followed by a second Twenty20 worldwide hundred a few days after.

"I wouldn't tinker with the bowling line-up".

The Indian skipper, who scored just 5 runs in the first innings, could manage 28 runs before being dismissed by Vernon Philander. You got to put this behind and try and comeback stronger in the next Test. "With (Chris) Morris coming in, they will have more strength in batting and that will help them in the series", Ganguly said. But after the 3rd innings of the match, there were some expectations from the Indian batsmen to chase the target. Olivier has played five Tests - all of them in 2017 - and Ngidi made his worldwide debut in a T20I game against Sri Lanka a year ago but is yet to play the other two formats.

Ronaldo gives honest verdict on Neymar move from Nou Camp to PSG
Neymar kept up his hot streak in front of goal by netting against Amiens in the Coupe de la Ligue on Wednesday. Do you agree with Ronaldo's opinion? I was at Barcelona and went to Inter Milan (in 1997).
