IND vs SA: du Plessis unhappy with Centurion wicket

Fans Question India's Team Selection After Opening Test Defeat Against South Africa

Its first pit stop for changing that perception is South Africa, where it is hoped it would counter adverse conditions to vanquish its rivals.

On the battle between Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers for batting honours in the series, du Plessis said, "Anyone who gets judged as being the best in the world, whether it is a bowler, batsman or team, I feel should get judged from his performances all around the world". For a follower of the Indian cricket team, there is one emotion that has shadowed him from time immemorial, the awful feeling of an imminent defeat, whenever playing in a foreign land and on a wicket layered with grass.

Sharing his thoughts, du Plessis said, "It looks a bit browner than I thought it would be". "We expected it and we wanted it to be that way". "The success of our Test team is highly dependant on the fast bowlers That's why Lungi [Ngidi] has been brought in - we want to get a closer look at him. Last week was very hot".

Markram fell just short of a century on his home ground, but South Africa was building partnerships and in control at the break on a surprisingly tame pitch at SuperSport Park.

Speaking on the eve of the match, du Plessis said that his side are preparing for unknown Centurion pitch before revealing that they had asked for a pitch with pace and bounce. "There is a thick layer of brown grass so it's not something we're used to seeing". India were in the game for 90 percent of the time. Conditions that we like are when we get the ball that spins as little as possible. Sitting here as a batsman, the first priority is to win games but if the ball takes the upper hand, so be it. "He's a massive contender to start in every Test for India, he'll be a vital part of our plans, especially overseas", Kohli had said of Bhuvneshwar in Kolkata.

"We have to decide whether we go with the same balance of four seamers and a spinner or whether we go for more of an all-rounder", Proteas skipper added. Shikhar Dhawan was failed to score runs in the match was also dropped and replaced by KL Rahul.
