South Africa v/s India, 2nd Test match

India vs South Africa Irfan Pathan Predicts R Ashwin Will Get Majority Of The Wickets In Centurion Test

Talking about the South African pitches, Kohli emphasised that team needs to have intent because the kind of bowling attack South Africa has, especially on these pitches they get extra bounce and they get extra pace off the wicket.

So, amid the battle between top-ranked India and No. 2 South Africa in the second test at Centurion on Saturday, there was some personal vindication for Ashwin with his 3-90, something to replace those Wanderers memories.

Credit has to go to Hardik Pandya for changing direction in his follow-through, fielding a ball nearly at square leg, turning around and going for and achieving a direct hit at the end that the batsman - Hashim Amla, slower of the two at that time - didn't expect action.

India made three changes to its lineup for Centurion after falling behind in the series against its closest challenger at the top of the test rankings. He (Rahane) is a quality player, he's done well in South Africa, all conditions actually away from home. "This pitch will again test us to play our best cricket and that is something we are looking forward to". They could have played Ishant in place of any other bowler.

Ashwin too probed Elgar, and in the 24th over, had a caught-behind appeal turned down.

There was hardly anything for the fast bowlers at all. Citing that Ishant might benefit with his height, Virat Kohli has hurt Bhuvneshwar Kumar's self-confidence.

India skipper Virat Kohli has said that this team is happy to fight fire with fire and the lively track on offer at the SuperSport Park in Centurion is no deterrent for his boys and they weren't just mere words and the batsmen backed it with action as they kept facing short pitched deliveries at the nets.

India made two other changes. What India got was an economy rate of 4.18 from Shami and 3.16 from Bumrah despite a late slowdown. And the most important thing is that we don't give up after being put under pressure.

Centurion: Cricket is a amusing game; the deserved at times do not get what they deserve. In the first hour of the Test, India were reduced to asking Pandya to hide the ball well outside off, which he did as ordered.

The day before the match provides quite a picture of the team management's thought process and the first to bat at the nets were Murali Vijay, KL Rahul and Parthiv Patel. By tea, 76 of the 129 runs scored off the fast bowlers had come on the leg side, in a country where you are well served to attack the batsmen just outside off. 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. Another positive would be the fearless and bold selection of all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who showed his daredevilry and panache, took the attack to the opposition and came out all guns blazing against strong South African attack. Bumrah bowled an ordinary second spell and was taken for runs as Elgar looked more comfortable at the crease.
