Virat Kohli fan succumbs to burn injuries after lighting himself on fire

South African bowler Vernon Philander celebrates the dismissal of Indian batsman Ravichandran Ashwin during the fourth day of the first Test cricket match between South Africa and India at Newlands cricket ground

"It is fine to go by current form, but they should not have overlooked the performances of KL Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane in overseas conditions in the past few years", Ganguly told India Today, disagreeing with Kohli's policy of picking Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma for the first Test at Cape Town.

Pacer Vernon Philander claimed three wickets as South Africa bowled out India for 135 in their second innings, registering a 72-run victory on the fourth day to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match Test series. India went in with some bold moves by opting for the young debutant Jasprit Bumrah's selection over the experienced Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav and benching KL Rahul instead of going in with the duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay; benching Ajinkya Rahane at No. 5 and opting for Rohit Sharma. "Their record is basically chalk and cheese when it comes to overseas Tests".

"Well, we made a decision to go on current form". If the technically sound Rahane is to be brought in for this must win Test, it would likely be in place of the stylish Mumbaikar Rohit Sharma, who has been unable to replicate his form from the shorter version of the game to the longer format.

India may have been short-changed on a treacherous surface, having dropped vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane - their most consistent performer on the previous leg of overseas assignments. It now remains to be seen whether, the Indians will ring in changes when the second Test gets underway January 13, at the Centurion. "It seems highly unlikely that they will not be given a second chance".

Amazon said Alexa on Toyota vehicles is a realization of the company's long-term vision for the intelligent voice assistant . The trouble is that Amazon (and Google) has first-party Alexa (and Google Assistant) products that are quite good.

"Virat (Kohli) has shown a lot of trust in Rohit and Shikhar. But, the top order and middle order failed to perform in the first Test and Rahane will be a valuable addition to the line-up", he said.

But Ganguly believes that Steyn's absence will not be a problem for Faf du Plessis' side and all-rounder Chris Morris will be an able replacement for the fast bowler.

However, things could have been worse for India, as Henry reckoned the visitors would have crumbled had they batted first in Cape Town and their batting order's confidence would have taken a further beating for the remainder of the series. Dale Steyn suffered an injury and will be a forced omission for South Africa.
