Kohli's subcontinent habit that doesn't work in South Africa

Fans Question India's Team Selection After Opening Test Defeat Against South Africa

India were thrashed by 72 runs in the first Test against South Africa at Cape Town.

A local police official told Hindustan Times that Babulal succumbed to his injures on Tuesday morning.

Former captain Sunil Gavaskar feels India should have played the warmup games to get acclimatise to the conditions in South Africa.

With 208 to defend against India, Philander said he knew he had to quickly take the responsibility of spearheading the pace battery and put his team in a good position. A long stretch of inconsistency might show Amla is nearing the end of an excellent career but before that he would want to notch some wins against big boys. That is the only way India can counter South Africa's pace battery on a 'lively' pitch.

Don't commit to Liam Neeson in 'The Commuter'
Still, The Commuter gives fans of B-level entertainment exactly what they want, and it's hard to fault any film that does that. A brand new action-packed film clip has arrived for the thriller, which finds Neeson back in action-man mode.

"Ultimately, especially in this series and for the rest of the summer, we will be looking to see how best we can fit four fast bowlers into whatever formula we come up with". The figures look anemic to say the least.

Rohit Sharma's inclusion ahead of Ajinkya Rahane was also one of the hottest topics of debate after India was humbled in Cape Town and the team management can address the concern in the second game. Meanwhile, Markram reached his second Test half-century off 81 balls, just before the break. They have stuck to their natural game, punishing bad deliveries and not flirting much with the wide balls outside off.

However, the world number one Test side will look to win this match in order to keep their hopes alive of becoming the first side in history to get to ten Test series win in a row with a victory over South Africa.

With conditions at Centurion again likely to favor fast bowling, the problem for India is not just how they should execute Kohli's strategy - but who should do it. You can't be changing and chopping players after every individual failure and a Test loss.

Regardless, Trump's legal team has been in communication with Mueller's investigation regarding the possibility of an interview . Trump told the Journal in his nearly hour-long interview that Lewandowski had more to do with his campaign's success than Bannon.

Getting AB de Villiers as his first Test scalp was a "happy moment" for him, said Bumrah.

It's not that Virat Kohli's side arrived late (December 28) in South Africa and didn't get enough time to get acclimatised to the conditions.

"The only part where we were a little better than them was that we got a few more runs in the first innings".

Watch the second Test between South Africa and India at Centurion live on Sky Sports Cricket from 7.55am on Saturday. He felt that would have prepared Indian batsmen for the challenge they were to face in South Africa.

Hawkins continued, saying that there hadn't been a moment where he hadn't been remorseful for what he had done. They will appear in court next week to confirm their attorneys and on January 23 for a preliminary hearing.

The case for Rahul being included in the first Test itself looked justified, given that the 25-year-old was in good touch, barring the last Test match he played in Nagpur. Sharma, who does not only boast of huge experience but also of a good height, can extract more bounce for the same reason.
