No reprieve for India in second test in Pretoria

"It's amusing how things change in a matter of weeks, or just about five days". It's human to err and if the team management feels that they erred in judgment with regards to Dhawan for the first Test, they can surely make amends in the second Test without thinking about how the decision will look to outsiders. "If it's a bowling-friendly track then we might go with four bowlers and if the conditions are perceived to be batting-friendly we might opt for five bowlers", he said. "We certainly don't go on opinions that are created outside, and "talk of the town", and all those sort of things". India were in the game for 90% of the game, so it was a fantastic contest between two really strong teams. Look at their team selection they played four pacers that in itself is a message from the Proteas. But then, in this case, I will stand by him and say that he had trained really hard for this series. "All possibilities are all open at the moment", he said. Would you change your approach just after one Test match or just back your natural game which has given you success in the past?

Bounce, seam and swing were all there to see at Newlands and SuperSport Park is expected to be no less lively.

Despite the collapses two times, Kohli said there was no need to panic as he spoke to the media at the pre-match press conference in Centurion today (January 12).

Both teams showed batting fragility in Cape Town, with India's pace bowlers showing they too could take advantage of helpful conditions. "We are going to test them and in a scenario we have a chance to go at the target or for a win everyone knows that we will do that".

"I think at times they played very good cricket in that first test".

Nextera Energy Inc (NYSE:NEE) 2017 Q3 Sentiment Report
Bokf increased its stake in Nextera Energy Inc (NEE) by 12.47% based on its latest 2017Q3 regulatory filing with the SEC. Deutsche Bank has "Buy" rating and $30 target. (NYSE:MXL) earned "Buy" rating by Stifel Nicolaus on Tuesday, February 9.

Kohli, who is India's best batsman feels that there is no need to press the panic button yet. Either you want to go out there and compete or you don't.

"You expect to be battered with pace when you come to South Africa". The new and improved version of Ishant Sharma has a lot more pace, guile and accuracy than before. That's something that has continued for a while. The reason to bring up this question is to figure out what comes first - the team composition based on the pitch with regards to how many batsmen-fast bowler-spinners should feature in the XI, or it's about who can't be dropped because of the way he performed in the last outing. We are pretty happy to see the wicket how it behaved in Cape Town that gave us many opportunities to stay in the game and make comebacks whenever we were put under pressure also. The time has come to spruce up the batting. "He is still developing and I think if he could add another yard of pace to his bowling, he would become a truly wonderful all-rounder", Klusener told PTI. "We need to have intent because of the kind of bowling attack they have".

Whether we are playing five batsmen or six, you still need to apply yourself. "We are not focussing on the result because whenever we look far ahead we drift away from the plan", Bumrah said.

"In the first innings, we thought we bowled a little fuller than normal because in India the wickets are different where we have to pitch fuller to get the swing and to get the batsmen on the front foot", pointed out Bumrah about change in India's bowling methods. Even one troll goes thus: "Kohli sirf Indian pitch per century bana sakte ho".
