    Yeah he's getting lift and bounce. He's rushing the batsmen.

    Will be interesting to see Morkel and Rabada's approach on this deck.

    Shami is moody, when in rhythm will pick 2/ 3 in quick succession so better hold him back when he's not pitching it right.

    He can be better with old ball i guess when others will struggle. But this pitch looks alot batting friendly. Can't wait to watch our batting.

    Mulder looks exciting but currently he's being phased in slowly at the Lions. He's currently batting at 8 and bowling as second change but anyone that's see him play will tell you that he's at best good enough to bat at 6. There are a lot of young players pushing for a place and Mulder is one of them. He'll definitely be In contention for the World Cup selection when the time comes.

    Ashwin getting some nice turn, no pace, no bounce, no seam movement but there is turn.. Is this match really in South Africa or India ?

    SA will score around 450 plus I feel,
    and Indians will get around 340,
    SA will score a further 290 in second innings and declare.
    Indians draw the match with 2 wicket to spare.

    you heard it here first..

    If SA score 290 in the 2nd, it will be at a faster pace.

    I don't see India surviving 4th innings until a second new ball.

    India's only chance to draw is to score heavily in the 1st.

    Although, anything can happen in a cricket game

    Umm draw is definitely possible, I think this wicket is flatter than the ones in India.

    On a wicket were he needed more bowlers than batsmen, Kohli was forced to pick the wrong side. SAfricans totally trolled Indians here, they knew Indians would go with a strengthened batting after the last test match so they went with a flat track to trick Indians into playing more bats with the confidence SA bowlers can still get on top but Indians cant with a weaker bowling line up.... Its all adding up now..

    Did thread on him a few years back. He's a great talent. I don't like that he's not batting in the top 5 though. He's more of a batting all rounder for me. I'd push him up the order.

    He's definitely batting far too low. Been suprised by his bowling though, looks very consistent and bowls at acceptable pace.

    How do people come up to conclusions before both sides have batted? This wicket is flat?

    Anyway I'm not happy with this surface, Ashwin is getting it to turn on day one. SA will have to score 400+ to mitigate for a second innings collapse. They'll probably have to have a lead of 80+ at the very least.

    The Cape Town surface wasn't abrasive enough to soften the ball/seam. The juice and the tinge of green made batting hard in the first hour or so. The pitch had settled by the time India went to bat. It was baked by the sun during the lunch break, India used a heavy roller to flatten the surface for 7 minutes. That happened in this universe.
    But yeah, good luck convincing yourself India had it tough. Even Indian journalists are aware of that fact.

    One thing that has been consistent is both teams seem to have no clue how to read the pitch in both matches. Also I wouldn't worry about the collapse ashwin can't do much given he will have no help from the other end.

    Of course, its always SA who have it tougher, whether they are touring, or playing at home after winning toss.

    South Africa have read this pitch well, it's a bat first surface.
    However I don't agree with the talk that this surface will quicken. It's different from the NZ surface 2016. That pitch had side ways movement, even though it was on the slower side. It was a bit green too, as a result it did get quicker on day 2. I don't think that's the case here. This pitch will bake and bake until it cracks late on day 3.

    Will be interesting to see what happens on day 4 and 5.

    Dude watch that game, the ball was moving around in the morning more than it did in the afternoon session. India didn't even lose a wicket until the 7th over.
    So yes the old ball was doing more than the new one.

    Anything that isn't green is a bat first pitch it's the team selection that tells you how they have read the pitch. Should have gotten another spinner or at least Morris to use the extra bounce.

    No thanks, our fast bowlers are way superior to our spin bowlers in any case.

    But that is history this pitch is turning on day 1, never seen that happen in SA. Also I wouldn't be too harsh on the curator Cricinfo did a article on the issue he faces to get this pitch ready pre game read it.

    The turn is slow, nothing exaggerated. But it's keeping the Indians interested. Doesn't justify playing two spinners in these conditions, not at the expense of your main strength. Both teams will have to bat first before we can make conclusions as to team composition.

    The curator is a tool though, there's no rain drought in the Gauteng province. There was no reason for this wicket not to be green. He had enough time to prepare the wicket, especially with the global T20 postponed.

    Looks like we're easing Amla back into form.

    This outfield is slow as well, I just don't get what the curator was doing.

    I'm willing to bat you've not seen Ngidi bowl right? If you're talking about bounce then he's the man for the occasion.

    I think BCCI influenced the curator to produce this sub continent track.

    Amla is gonna ton up here. This the kinda pitch where he goes big, in fact he averages around 80 at Centurion if I'm not mistaken.

    SA will score ~500, India will score around 300-350ish with one good performance from Kohli or someone else who gonna score a 100.. SA will give India a target of around 400 and Indian innings gonna falter in second innings and we will lose by around 150-200 runs..

    Wait for Indian innings suddenly there would be demons in the pitch.. When all our batsmen fail apart from 1 or two..

    Yes Makram looks very impressive when the bowling attacks are weak or when the wicket is flat.. Agreed

    Just tuned into the match. Why did SA dish out flat pitch?

    This looks some pitch in Vishakapatnam than SA. Hope India bats well too and not throw the wickets away.

    Patel dropped a catch off Ishant. Reprieve for Amla. He wont give more chances. Looks like another unlucky day for Ishant in white colors.

    If India's luck depends on one chance of Amla then that is a problem.

    Leg side catches are tricky. It wasn’t an easy one.

    Indian batting line up looks a lot stronger in this match.

    Wish BK was playing. He would have added more strength to batting.

    Something tells me this will be a draw. This is the kind of pitch where Rohit can also perform. Ball is going gun barrel straight after pitching.

    Did India do a mistake of not picking Jaddu ?

    Nothing much in the pitch by looks of it so Indian batsmen should prosper

    How is the wicket? Scorecard tells only Ash.

    By the way - I knew Sharmaji won’t be dropped after one Test where everyone failed with bat.

    Can someone tell me why they dropped BK our best chance to take early wikets is with BK bowling with new ball.. You need an early wicket if you don’t get and openers settle rubbish bowlers like Ishant won’t be doing anything..
