For a country with long memories of watching its fighters revolt at high speeds while playing outside, a photo of Alan Donald Scorcher defending Sachin Tendulkar in a Boxing Day Test in Kingsmead, Durban in 1996 after being battered. Two incisions on all fours through cap and tip still hurt.India was in awe of scoring 100 and 66 in the two rounds in three days. Venkatesh Prasad's brilliant 10-point tour was a footnote."Forget the rhino, save India," shouted a banner in Protea's hand at the booth.However, as Indian fans, we are good at finding the antidote to painful losses. In it, the two sections stand out as countermeasures to Donald's hegemony.Back to Kingsmead. Then, San Esteban Day Test. Second in the series 2010-2011. South Africa, chasing the 303 for victory, we're riding steady at 123-3 as Ashwell Prince and Jacques Kallis build a partnership. Enter S Sreesanth. The hobo and the wizard. He made a delivery that was mounted from the length and saw Kallis turning into a high jump to stop him. The ball came out of his gloves and headed towards Verinder Sehwag. The hosts collapsed and India tied the chain.2018 cut in Johannesburg, the third test between India and South Africa. The number of times members of the two teams traveled in the middle to check on the well-being of the batter was almost greater than in the stands.Michael Holding of the West Indies ranked the launch at number 2 out of 100 and one comment described it as "ridiculous." Holding demanded the referees cancel the match.India did not have any of these. Between Lord's 2014 and Wanderer's 2018, he only won Tests in Asia and the West Indies. They were thirsty for "blood". South Africa's Jaspreet Poumrah hit Dean Elgar (who scored 86 points in the second half) in the helmet. South was amazed. This version did the job of rocking the South African locker room. From 124/2, chasing 241, South Africa was eliminated for 177, with Mohamed Elshamy making a frenzy from 5 to 28 innings. The backbone of Team India, led by Kohli, has grown.In a way, the 2018 Johannesburg Test, which India won by 63 runs, was the benchmark for the way Kohli and Shastri played abroad. In that series, they were in good shape in Cape Town and Centurion to win, but faltered at crucial moments, as they did in England later in 2018.Instead of staying ahead and playing catchy cricket, he might have attacked too much and run dribbling.South Africa has always been a difficult place for Indians to visit. Speed and bounce like Australia. But unlike Australia, they don't attack all the time.They frustrate you with impunity, and after you score enough, they will kill.Many believe that the Indian team that is currently on tour in South Africa has the best chance of winning the Frontier Final. South Africa is a place where India has not won a series. They were close in 2010-11 when they drew 1-1 and were in the winning position in Cape Town in Test 3, but the unimaginable MS captain Dhoni let the hosts escape.No Indian leader has invested in speed and aggression quite as much as Kohli. From the Johannesburg test in 2018, the following individuals lost their names in South Africa: Hashem Amla, AB de Villiers, Faf du Plessis, Vernon Philander, and Morne Morkel.India still has the core of the team that competed in 2018 and has an arsenal of bowling not only to offside, but also to frustrate and do well to catch up, despite the poor mid-level performance.When the ball stops swinging, Indian bowlers have the mentality of throwing the stem to the stump with two middle wickets, a square leg, only two slips, a circular field in the offside zone, waiting for the hack, and then forward. throat.Regardless of Omicron, South Africa was hit by racial scandals and an exodus of good cricketers who accepted Kolpak's deals in search of a better life in the UK or New Zealand.Cricketers like Sunil Gavaskar, Zuhair Khan, Dinesh Karthik, But South African captain Elgar fired the first warning shot. "I'd rather be in my locker room than in India knowing they have to face the bowlers." and Harbhajan Singh feels this is India's best chance to win in South Africa.Also Read -  Indias series in South Africa to be played without fans, say CSA

Former Australia captain Ricky Bunting questioned Joe Root's comments about English bowlers during the Ashes and said that as the captain of the traveling team, it was his responsibility to make changes if necessary.Former Australia captain Ricky Bunting questioned Joe Root's comments about english bowlers during the Ashes and said that as the captain of the traveling team, it was his responsibility to make changes if necessary.After a crushing nine-wicket defeat in Brisbane's opener, England fell to the second Test by 275 runs in Adelaide on Monday to track the five-game streak 2-0.After the pink ball test, Root said his players needed to play more and "be braver."Australia's massive 275-round win gave Australia a 2-0 lead in the #Ashes series as the team headed to Melbourne."When I heard this, I almost fell out of my seat," Bunting told Cricket Australia. "So it's their job to take their place? So why are you the captain?" he said.“If you can't influence bowlers at the length required to throw them, what do you do on the court?"Joe Root can go back and say whatever he wants, but if you're the captain, you have to be able to understand that bowlers aren't bowling where you want them to. That's what the captain is all about."Ponting also noted that the English bowling attack was the best when Root left the field with a thigh injury and the captain was handed over to Ben Stokes."The interesting thing for me is that when he gave the whole game, Joe Root wasn't on the field," Ponting said."From day four, when they met on the field before the match started, Stokes took charge of the team, and that was the only time in the game that he took the ball."The third Ash Test will take place from December 26-30 at Melbourne Cricket Ground.For the previous Article - Virat vs BCCI: We'll deal with it, says Ganguly

"No statement, no press conference.

There were no offenses, no hesitation, and not once did I say 'You shouldn't resign the T20 captain.'"

rohit sharma to replace virat kohli

The inside story on why Rohit replaced Kohli as Indias white-ball captain

It was just a line at the end of the press release announcing the Test Team for the Tour of South Africa. On Wednesday, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry dismissed Virat Kohli from the leadership of the Indian ODI team and handed the full load of the white ball to Rohit Sharma. The test unlocks tool will now drive both sides of the T20I and ODI.A senior official in the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that this decision had been in the works for some time, but the final decision was made by the selectors. BCCI wanted complete clarity between the red ball and the white cricket ball. The BCCI wanted a complete separation (of command) between the longer and shorter format to avoid confusion. In the end, the decision was left to the selector. They have decided to appoint Rohit as the new captain of ODI,” a BCCI source told the Indian Express.In contrast to the change of leadership of the T20I, where Kohli made the announcement citing his workload, the change of leadership of ODI is seen as a BCCI decision. Three months ago, after resigning as T20I captain, Kohli expressed his desire to lead India in Tests and ODIs in the future. “Understanding the workload is very important, considering the huge workload I have been in playing all three formats over the past 8-9 years and captaining regularly for the last 5-6 years, I feel I have to be a part of the Indian team. You need to be in a position to fully prepare to drive. ODI Cricket and Test Team,” he wrote on Instagram on September 16.However, after India's expected exit from the T20 World Cup, it became clear that BCCI was not on the same page as Kohli. They will make it official at the first opportunity they are given. Announcement of the Test Team in which Kohli was the Captain and Sharma the Vice Captain: “The All India Supreme Selection Committee has also decided to appoint Mr. Rohit Sharma as the captain of the ODI and T20I teams.”Indian Express has also learned that Kohli was not informed of the decision in advance. Again, this was a departure from the past. While stepping down as T20I captain, Kohli recalled his talks with former India coach Ravi Shastri, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, and Board Secretary Jay Shah before making the decision. It was also his choice to leave leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore team in the Indian Premier League.The first indications of Kohli's volatile stance on the bench came when BCCI hired MS Dhoni as the team's mentor at the October-November T20 World Cup. Kohli's inability to win the ICC events was a concern of the Indian Board of Directors. Insiders say it was India's performance in the T20 World Cup that decided Kohli's future. However, in a move that surprised even BCCI officials, Kohli announced his decision to quit driving T20I even before the tournament started. His desire to continue as a test and ODI captain worried the stewards. With India hosting the 2023 World Cup for 50 years, Kohli did not want to let go of the ODI captain. In a way, it was Kohli who was abusing the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Remove me from the ODI Team Leader position, if you wish. BCCI did the same on Wednesday.Going back in timeThe captain's decisions in Indian cricket are never left to the players. Kapil Dev was fired a year after his 1983 World Cup win. Sunil Gavaskar resigned after winning the 1985 World Cricket Championship. Sourav Ganguly was revoked under bitter circumstances. Even Dhoni, who had three world titles in his bag, was hit in the shoulder by the selection committee at the time when it felt the need to change the white ball captain. Kohli probably couldn't read the room.In another interesting development, the selectors have promoted Sharma to auditioning for Vice Captain instead of Ajinkya Rahane, despite the latter being selected for the three-game series in South Africa. Sharma's growing standing on the team could give way to reading between the lines, which has begun to phase out Kohli's style.Kohli has been one of the most successful white ball captains in India. In the 95 ODI, he won 65, giving him a win percentage of over 70. In the 45 T20I, he led India to win 27 times. Sharma has always been Kohli's assistant in limited cricket, captaining the team in 10 ODI and 19 T20I before being given the full-time job during the last three-match streak against New Zealand. I started with a clean sweep. Five IPL titles led by the Mumbai Indians made him the successor to Kohli.Read more latest news to visit now - PITCHHIGH
