Du Plessis expects another tough battle with India on "brown" Centurion wicket

The wicket looks a bit browner than I thought. His batting was excellent in the way he reversed pressure and put it back on South Africa. But it is the nature of such things that as the team that lost, it is India who have to find solutions if they're to remain in contention in the series. "I'm not anxious on the bowling front at all".

In a short span of time in worldwide cricket, Pandya has established himself as a regular in the team. In Tests, he now has a century and two fifties. Hardik Pandya, the exuberant young all-rounder, was the ideal foil.

Those who've seen Bumrah go about from close quarters say "his clarity of mind is everything about him".

The all-rounder's heroics though couldn't save India from a disappointing loss at Newlands. The only place where they faltered in the game was in the first innings where they scored fewer runs than the South African side. Klusener didn't agree with this approach. India were in the game for 90% of the game, so it was a fantastic contest between two really strong teams. He has done well in South Africa, in all conditions actually away from home. "That's why I said it was one of the best Tests I've played in, because there were so many ups and downs for both teams". The most pleasing thing for me was to see that he was wanting the ball all the time. Take into consideration his record in Australia, New Zealand, England and South Africa in singularity, and this comes down considerably to 27.81 (11 Tests). There will be lot of talk about players who were not in the playing eleven. Fans would have backed them too, but now it turns out both were mistaken.

It turned negative, as 66 investors sold GM shares while 322 reduced holdings. 96 funds opened positions while 242 raised stakes. The auto manufacturer reported $1.32 EPS for the quarter, beating the Zacks' consensus estimate of $1.07 by $0.25.

Then there is a suggestion of players playing their natural game. Among the bowlers, the need for change is probably less than with the batsmen. Why overseas, they lost the first Test even at home to Australia by a massive 333 runs at Pune past year and before that to Sri Lanka at Galle.

"You need to find the ideal balance to do well in South Africa, especially where there is more bounce". But what I found remarkable was that they immediately hit the flawless length for South African conditions.

The Proteas are expected to retain the remainder of their bowling attack with Philander leading and the Test no.1 bowler in the mix as well. We have been in a very good space, and we believe we can get them out twice again in this game. "The best thing about him is his ability to distance himself from any kind of distraction", they add. "It was definitely a plan to keep him quiet, and also to drag him across to make sure that when you do bowl the other one, he is on the other side of the off-stump".

Philander said: "You just have to remain calm". "Sometimes when you have a long batting line-up you can take your foot off because someone else might come and do that".

The director said of Gal, "She knew the great importance of this character and what she could mean to the world if well done". The Israeli actress appeared in reprisals of the Fast and Furious, but none of them were banned in Lebanon.

The visitors have only ever won 2 out of 18 Tests on South Africa soil, so they have their work cut out if Kohli aspires to win a series here.

"To be really honest, I don't know (if it will spin). I am still learning and hopefully in the further matches, I will be able to do better", said Bumrah. Coming from 1-0 down, 1-1 will be a good result for them. They need to leave Cape Town behind them and move on.

He outlined the differentiation in his performance was down to understanding the nature of the pitches in South Africa. "India's only chance is if they can get a big score on the board", Klusener signed off.
