Although I think the pro of kumar outweighs the cons of shami.
Either way India fans should be please that one quality pace man can’t get in the team.

Maybe Shami should be the one to make way for the return of Bhuvi for the final Test.

Having said that, Bumrah and Pandya have been fast, but not really that successful.

Then again, it depends what kind of wicket the Wanderers offers.

South Africa 335 all out.

Ashwin 4-113
Ishant 3-46


Mike, Bhuvi and Shami are No. 1 and 2 pacers for us. No way they can be dropped unless unfit.

I have changed my mind. Bumrah to make way for kumar.

Morkel gets Rahul for 10!

Pujara run out for a duck!

Ngidi!



Yes, Jas was the surprise selection in playing 11.

He should have been left out with the 4 obvious choice in order being Bhuvi, Shami, Ishant.

Hardik as all rounder.

But with Virat you never know. Anyone skips the pecking selection order. It's his way.

Shami dis not bowl good as is expected from him, but dropping the first choice players in one or two bad matches is a very bad strategy. It will never allow the core team to build.

Ideally Virat should have Bhuvi into next match by default. First player in this team on this tour imo.

2 down. 64/2 is not what we needed when we would like to post 450.

Trailing by 260. 8 wickets intact. Lot of catching up to do.

At least one opener (Vijay) has got set, which will help us. Vijay needs to convert this into a ton. There is no second choice in this test. we have to draw level.

Nicely flicked all along the ground by Vijay. :clap

Virat nearing a 50 as well.

Vijay out for 46.

107/3. This is getting problematic. Still 228 runs behind and 3 top order batters gone.

Rabada bowled all the balls in 140's this over. He was the fastest bowler in the one test against Zimbabwe as well as the two tests against India.
