The Kanpur affair has been a reality check for MS Dhoni and co, with a few pluses and more minuses. Despite a fantastic knock of 150 from Rohit Sharma, India couldn’t snatch the match, and there’s plenty to introspect.
For India, the concerns lie with the bowling side as always, but the most attention-grabbing thing at the moment is skipper Dhoni, his decisions and his form.
Dhoni has been taking charge with changes that many have not admired. While Rahane at No.3 might have proven to be helpful, but can Kohli take the charge at No.4?
Dhoni’s own form with the bat has many raised many questions, something he might just want to clear today.
It also remains to be seen how India deals with the absence of their star bowler Ravichandran Ashwin. Can Harbhajan Singh fill the gap in a better way?
For South Africa, things have been smooth, and this time around, they would Kagiso Rabada to keep taking charge, especially with regards to Dhoni.
Ab de Villiers has been in form, but the visitors might want some more from David Miller, who hasn’t played to his potential so far in this tour.
Finally, it has to be JP Duminy taking the lead for South Africa, as he has frequently on the tour.
