India vs South Africa, 2nd Test: Changes likely in playing XI

South Africa are 269 for 6 at stumps. For a follower of the Indian cricket team, there is one emotion that has shadowed him from time immemorial, the awful feeling of an imminent defeat, whenever playing in a foreign land and on a wicket layered with grass.

"The wicket looks a bit browner than I thought". Was the change which most of us were expecting a creation of our own imagination, not rooted in reality?

"We were pretty happy with the wicket and the way it played in Cape Town, it gave us many opportunities to stay in the game", said Kohli. "For us, at the moment, it is unknown and we will see how it plays over the next five days", he told a news conference. "There is a thick layer of brown grass so it's not something we're used to seeing". Those were times when no one expected India to even match its rival, let alone win.

Congress Just Gave Trump Admin Authorization To Spy On Citizens

When Pandya with his brutal hitting was shaking the very foundations of the South African pace attack, I wondered would this be the match-winning innings we all were waiting for or be one more addition to the list of individual glory, a consolation prize amidst the gloom of defeat? "They will have taken a lot of positives from that match, and they will feel they weren't far off". "We believe we can get them out twice again". This coming from Virender Sehwag who has always been on Kohli's side is a big statement and shows how animated he got at the sight of Bhuvneshwar Kumar not making it to the playing XI. Besides him, Indian batsmen collapsed like dominoes and the visitors were wrapped for 209 and 135 runs in successive innings.

Talking about the balance in the team, he said, "Do we want to keep the same balance, of four seamers and a spinner, or do we look at an allrounder".

However, Kohli didn't mention whether or not there will be a change in the playing eleven. He admitted that there would be some discussion about India's opening batting combination, which suggests that Shikhar Dhawan's place could be in doubt after two poor dismissals against short-pitched deliveries last week.
