What dropping Bhuvneshwar Kumar tells us about Virat Kohli's captaincy

Disappointed by Virat Kohli's early dismissal Ratlam man sets himself ablaze

Excluding Bhuvneshwar, Kohli cited the reason that seamer won't be effective on the bouncy wicket. Still, he was asked to warm the bench and allow Ishant Sharma use his height to extract more bounce. Dhawan dropped one - that of Keshav Maharaj.

"Apart from that, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and all (others) are very talented and they have proved in the last Test match (against South Africa), given a wicket like that they can rip apart any team". Indian pacers took 14 wickets among themselves to stop the South Africans from posting mighty total on board each time. If Bhuvneshwar misses out, Ishant will come in.

"His bowling has picked up pace, his ball is heavier than what it used to be". He was at the crease for 95 minutes in the first, and another 50 in the second. Virat also pointed out that before the first Test everyone was saying that Rahane should not be in playing eleven.

Rain on two occasions and Graham Onions on another, stopped South Africa beating England.

Moreover, Bhuvneshwar keeps the pressure on and does not bowl any loose deliveries offering his captain a measure of control. In the end, it was the batting of Indian all-rounders Ravichandran Ashwin, Hardik Pandya and Bhuvnesh Kumar who helped India gain the upper hand in a couple of sessions during the game. His job is to score big runs and make an impact with the bat.

As far as Rahul's selection goes it is not as glaring a mistake as Ishant's but it is still debatable. What then, if the new hero is an old hero - what if he is Rohit Sharma, the man who marched merrily to his third ODI double hundred just the other day. "For us as a team it's all about finding the right balance". However, he does not have a weakness against the short ball like Dhawan and is a better player of pace.

Steve Bannon Stepping Down from Breitbart News
The reference also angered the president, who last week lashed out at Bannon, saying he "lost his mind". He initially left Breitbart in 2016 to lead Mr Trump's unconventional election campaign.

If Ajinkya Rahane doesn't play it would be a very foolish step on the touring team's part, and that's regardless of whether it comes at the expense of or in addition to Rohit Sharma in the middle-order.

Rahane has scored 1069 runs in 13 Tests in the above four countries at an average of 48.59 with three centuries.

The SuperSport Park pitch has a reputation for being one of the most hard places to bat but 39 centuries have been scored in the past and Indian batsmen need to show the required dedication and commitment to keep this three-match Test series alive.

But none of the specialist batsmen grabbed this opportunity, and it was left to Kohli to defend them. They have been playing well consistently, that's why they are ranked No 1 in the world.

The overwhelming majority of teams winning the toss at Centurion choose to field; 15 times in 22 Tests, emerging victorious six times, losing six, while there were the three draws against England.
