India will seek to bounce back and Proteas will looking for a series win as Second test kick off today

 

India skipper Virat Kohli has believe that his side is happy to level the series against Proteas. The track on offer at this SuperSport Park in Centurion is no preventive for his boys. But what did confuse many is whether we will see veteran opening batsmen Parthiv Patel and KL Rahul come into the playing XI for the second Test, starting Saturday. The day before the match provides quite a picture of the team management's thought process and the first to bat at the nets were Murali Vijay, KL Rahul and Parthiv Patel. If that was no confusing enough, Parthiv was also seen fine-tuning his wicket-keeping skills. Wriddhiman Saha all this while was seen just helping out with throw downs as the slip catching session was on.

In case of Rahane too, things seems pretty unclear because even though he batted at the nets with Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma, Rahane's was the shortest stint. But then, he was also seen working on his slip catching. If India does include Rahane, it will have to be a case of having an extra batsman because there is no way that Rohit will be dropped as he was picked by the management ahead of the Test deputy in the opening game and to drop him after just one game would be unfair and will show the team management in poor light.
