We don't need to panic about our batting unit: Virat Kohli

India vs South Africa Ignored Ajinkya Rahane Trains Alongside Ishant Sharma KL Rahul Ahead Of 2nd Test

Kohli failed to deliver in the Indian batting challenge while chasing a mediocre target in the opening Test.

Having more diverse pitches would not only give India's fast bowling attack better chances of success but would also help the team prevent the kind of batting debacle seen in the first Test in India's ongoing South Africa tour.

Kohli had asked for more intent from his batsmen after the defeat in the first Test at Newlands too. India did the right thing by going in with five bowlers. The problem lies with the overall batting performance, and this has to be fixed soon. "So this is my basic plan always - never go by perceptions that this will happen and this won't happen", he said.

Mueller adds cybersecurity specialist to Russian Federation probe team
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.

"To win a Test anywhere in the world you need to stay in the present moment and try and win each moment that comes your way", he explained.

Now in the top three batsmen across all three formats of the game according to the International Cricket Council rankings, Kohli is a national icon in India.

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.

She had to undergo another surgery, and a week later, she finally went home and found she wasn't even able to get out of bed. Tennis legend Serena Williams is widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes on the planet, and perhaps ever.

"The history of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma in overseas conditions is not very good". You look at their records, it's like chalk and cheese when they go away and when they are in India. So you are basically depending on Murali Vijay and Virat Kohli as the two best performers in overseas conditions.

He added, "Look at Cheteshwar Pujara". I keep saying about KL Rahul because he has scored runs in Australia, he has scored runs in West Indies and Sri Lanka. He'd conceded 73 runs for De Villiers' wicket in the first innings - which proved costly ultimately - and in the second, in picking up three wickets, he went for just 39 runs. "I think it was great for Test cricket and there was a result in four days despite losing a day's play".

Speaking after the match at Newlands, Kohli said that Rohit was picked over Rahane based on current form. However, skipper Kohli wants to give Rohit yet another chance. Rahane has scored 17 runs in his last five test innings but he is among the few Indians who has been successful outside India - where he averages 53.44.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Open Beta Begins
The beta ends on Tuesday 16th January at those same times, so everyone has at least a couple of days to take it for a spin. If you pre-ordered the game, you can jump in on Saturday 13th January at 00:00 PST/08:00 GMT.

Decision to drop Rahane was bold but it backfired. "There is a possibility that one of them (Ajinkya Rahane or KL Rahul) may come back". He may have collected the majority of his Test runs outside India, but the bulk of them have been in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh - hardly benchmarks for Test quality in recent years. The wicket in Centurion will be quick as well. 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.
