India could change opening combination, says Kohli

India could change opening combination, says Kohli

His comments come after India's 72-run defeat inside four days in the opening Test against South Africa at Newlands earlier in the week.

"I don't think we need to panic because of collapses".

"It was probably two-and-a-half overs of away-swingers and then the one back at him (Kohli)".

"I was not anxious about his DRS review. Before the first Test no-one thought that he should be in the eleven and now suddenly people are looking at the other option", Kohli said.

"We just tried to correct them and not overdo things because over here when there is help from the wicket, you try to do extra but that won't help". "There has been a lot of talk about the combination". "There are two ways of taking it - you can take it personally and fade away, or you can take it on board and make a play. You can't wait for later in the game - because there might not be a "later on in the game", he said. I knew that the new ball was going to be the key for us and that if we could get wickets with the new ball we felt we can get through their batting line-up. "Here's a peek into the willow work that went in the build-up to the Test at Centurion #TeamIndia #SAvIND", Indian cricket team captioned the video it posted on Facebook on Friday.

Similarly, in the pace department, Jasprit Bumrah was handed debut straightaway with the more experienced likes of Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav warming the benches.

"If we had taken our chances in the first innings, even after them counter-attacking, we could have kept them to 220". Philander said: "You just have to remain calm". Ravichandran Ashwin also got you 30 runs with the bat.

But Ganguly believes that Steyn's absence will not be a problem for Faf du Plessis' side and all-rounder Chris Morris will be an able replacement for the fast bowler. It will have a lot more bounce than Cape Town. "Luckily it paid off".

"My basic motto is not to get too excited after some success, or get too down when things are tough but take the confidence from the previous match and move forward", he said. "Possibilities are all open at the moment and we shall decide after practice".

Hailing the efforts of his bowlers in the second innings to restrict the hosts for a paltry 130 and an overall lead of 207, Kohli said: "We were thinking 250, 275 if they play well".

The SuperSport Park pitch has a reputation for being one of the most hard places to bat but 39 centuries have been scored in the past and Indian batsmen need to show the required dedication and commitment to keep this three-match Test series alive. That's one reason why we have won many games in the past is because we have applied ourselves really well.
