South Africa ease to 78/0 at lunch on flat pitch

South Africa ease to 78/0 at lunch on flat pitch

In the first test at Newlands, India had a decent opportunity to start the series with a victory as South Africa produced one of the spiciest pitches which was sure to favour a good Indian pace attack.

A local police official told Hindustan Times that Babulal succumbed to his injures on Tuesday morning. On a positive side, the Indian team has always shown that extra aggression under Virat Kohli's captaincy and if that aggression is displayed again here, I must say India can send jitter waves to the South African dressing room. He had received burn injuries on his face, head and hands, the official added.

Preview: India will aim to bounce back after their defeat in the opening Test against South Africa when the second match of the starts at the SuperSport Park on Saturday with the focus on its batsmen. "What matters is what we are going to do from tomorrow onwards to try and win this Test match", Kohli put up a fearless front as he signed off. It won't be easy with Centurion being South Africa's fortress. "Our culture is strong on making sure that when young guys come into the team that we treat them as though they have played 50 or 70 or 100 Tests", he revealed. "I don't mind that", said du Plessis.

A couple of things went against India in the first game which they lost by 72 runs, failing to chase down a target of 208. Gavaskar said to make a comeback in the three-Test series, India batsmen will have to shrug their lethargy and raise their game at both the technical and physical level.

India skipper Virat Kohli is yet to field an unchanged XI as Test skipper and after the first Test loss at Cape Town, the trend might continue as India are set to make some changes.

Kohli said he was delighted with with his bowlers' performance in the first Test. "We had it in out arsenal to get those last three wickets". The new and improved version of Ishant Sharma has a lot more pace, guile and accuracy than before.

No Indian top-order batsman made more than 28 in either innings in Cape Town with the only two scores above 30 were 93 by Hardik Pandya in the first innings and 37 by Ravichandran Ashwin in the second.

"There is no need to panic as a batting unit, we have played well for a long time - and we have played well away from home as well". Today (January 13), Bhuvneshwar was dropped from the team for the second Test against South Africa in Centurion. If you pick four seamers, he can be in amongst them.

"It looks a really lively pitch", Kohli said at his pre-Test press conference on Friday. Bringing in Ishant Sharma for Bhuvneshwar Kumar has raised quite a few eyebrows, and one of the best fast bowlers to have played the game, Allan Donald reacted rather angrily.
