    Pant is doing exactly what I have always been saying about him for the past few years. He loves to gift his wicket away to opposition and a cookies to his fans to defend him everytime he plays like that.

    Playing ashwin was a mistake like I said. We needed the extra batsman. The pitch today was not that tough but thos was poor batting after puj/rahane.

    That is another issue. But given the squad, there us bo need for a spinner on the Highveldt where spinners struggle.

    Spinners do struggle here. However Ashwin made a great contribution with bat in the first innings which an extra bat may not have made.

    That's why instead of having an extra bat, we need these guys to take more responsibility with bat and start scoring some runs which their primary discipline mandates them to do.

    Proteas team of the past with Hashim, AB, Smith, Kallis and JP this was an easy run chase, but with this batting I don't think they can chase anything over 200 and I'm someone who follows this team very closely and am a big fan of South African cricket.

    They've got some really good players in domestic set up but the current lot has some serious loopholes. I don't think Markram, Bavuma, Rassie are good enough. I may look foolish here because Bavuma has had a good series but 1 century in 46 games is enough to convince me that he is not good enough.

    Rassie is a LOI player. I have my doubts on Keegan as well but he has looked good and is another lad who has worked really hard at domestic level to reach here.

    Verreynne is a serious talent and will come through. Janneman eventually will break into this team, Hamza and Rickelton can also get in, Hamza more likely and has the best chance as he is colored.

    Rossouw can also be given a look in, it depends on selectors see him after his Kolpak stint. They've accepted Olivier and Parnell though, so why not Rossouw.

    if the last 3 guys can get even 15 each, that will be awesome.
    But vihari has to change gears and has to farm the strike now.

    Kagiso Rabada is helping Indians by giving too many extras. 30 extras till now. These extras will definitely help us.

    Thakur has changed it with the bat as well, came in at a tricky situation and played a crucial knock

    So far Vihari has proved to be a very timid cricketer. Can he change that perception today?

    He was playing slowly, keeping one side up while the other end went for shots. He will have to open up now and protect the tail.
    Shami already out as I type.

    vihari really needs to stamp his presence now. max runs on first 4, take singles on 4th and fifth.
    Hope jazz boom gets a 25, now that would be handy.
    By the way, - whats Siraj's status - can dude bowl?

    He want others to score quickly. He will play defensive till Bumrah's wicket. After that he may score fast.
