Proteas skittle India despite Pujara and Kohli defiance

While Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara were able to grind India out of an early wobble when they departed India fell to pieces and were 187 all out.

Sehwag said it was important for India to bat well in the first innings which is key to the result of the match.

"In place of (Jasprit) Bumrah you can pick Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar)".

The much-vaunted Indian batting line-up should go back to the basics and take advice from stalwarts, such as Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar, who have excellent overseas records. Even focusing on the positives, you need to be able to still work on your positives to be able to be a consistent global player over a period of time. Bhuvneshwar Kumar comes in for R Ashwin as India go out with all pace attack.

"As the game progresses I think this wicket will have variable bounce and the cracks will open up".

Overall, the scenery has changed quite drastically for Kohli.

Former South Africa skipper Graeme Smith even questioned whether it would be a good idea for Kohli to keep captaining India in the long-run. Finally, the South African fast bowler, Lungi Ngidi, too, deserves praise for slicing through the Indian batting line-up on his Test debut. It was the first time India had gone into a test without a specialist spinner since 2012.

And India opted for five pacemen and no spinner at the Wanderers.

The battle of the pacers, though, did come to an end in the third Test at Johannesburg, where India made a decision to play all the four frontline fast bowlers they had picked on the tour. Vijay survived 32 balls for his 8 before also edging to de Kock.

"I never felt like I was in on this wicket", he said.

There are cracks that the ball is deviating off and the bounce is already up and down according to Phehlukwakyo, whose advice to batsmen is to try and get going quickly. "It's a greener wicket than the normal at the Wanderers, there was a bit of a cloud". Kohli has never played the same eleven in 34 consecutive Tests now (dating back to Adelaide 2014) and this run is set to continue with the management intent on getting their team selection right on the money.

Virat Kohli has won the toss and elected to bat again.

The Indian team is full of stroke-makers like Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya. Will they field all four quicks in the XI - which they last did against Australia in Perth in 2012? Batsman Temba Bavuma has been ruled out of this match owing to a fractured finger, but all-rounders Chris Morris and Theunis de Bruyn provide adequate cover.

Interestingly, the third spot in the list is taken by South African skipper Faf du Plessis. "Just playing against India, you don't get the opportunity a lot to be in a position of strength where we can beat them 3-0".
