Rabada opens up on whether India are too reliant on Kohli

The Indian team has steadfastly refused to blame the pitches in the Test series loss and that is winning them plaudits. "So obviously we want to get a whitewash against India".

Harbhajan Singh believes Virat Kohli, copping criticism for his debatable selection policy for the Centurion Test, should be backed to the hilt since it is his first "real overseas tour" as captain. I don't think they have left very well, especially in conditions at Cape Town.

A team reliant on Kohli the batsman for runs is one thing. "You don't get many opportunities to beat big teams 3-0".

"They (Indians) are fighters, they fight wherever they go and they got the skills". Bumrah is a very good bowler, he's already opening the bowling now.

However, Harbhajan is hopeful of India finishing the series on a high before the two sides clash in a six-match one day global series. Then we'll have a look at the pitch. We know how the conditions behave here.

But, while Rabada feels that India depend on Kohli, he admitted that the Proteas have a similar problem, whereby they bank on a few players to get them out of hard situations. Wanderers is a good wicket, it's normally a moving wicket.

Walmart Offers an Easier Way to Dispose of Prescription Opioids

Myint Thu said, "We've already started preparations and we already built the 2 reception centers and one transit camp". The UN has called the violence against civilians in Myanmar a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing".

The 37-year-old, who has played over 100 Tests for India and 236 One Day Internationals, is in Kolkata to lead Punjab in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament knockouts starting from Sunday. During this time, the Indian players visited Mabula Game Reserve for an overnight stay and, according to some reports, held team bonding sessions as well. They did makeup in the second innings by bowling the hosts cheaply.

"We have not come here just to participate". Simons, whose time in India saw them lift the 2011 World Cup, termed the pace attack's efforts in the first two Tests against the Proteas a "top job". "Off the field, we're friends".

The Indian team and the team management had conveyed to the BCCI that it needed to tweak the series against Sri Lanka - by either cancelling the three T20 matches or by replacing the Test series with six ODIs at best - so that the team could be free at least two weeks earlier than what turned out to be the case.

"It's nice to see youngsters step up - like Lungi Ngidi, he stepped up". Centurion has been a very good Test venue. The player expressed, "I never thought of playing for any other franchise other than CSK". Elgar has also gained two places and is now ranked 14th following scores of 31 and 61. "We are taking 20 wickets", he asserted. There was a bit of variable bounce.

"Look at the Indian guys on the other hand". "The previous game at Newlands (where South Africa won by 72 runs) was nearly on fast forward".

"AB is a genius at his craft". It is surprising how even though the players will be warm towards me, this official has a problem with me. He talks about the intensity that Kohli wants from his players. Does it matter? Wherever we play we try to do our best. He responded to another question over India's lineup by challenging his interrogator to name the best team if it was so easy. But we played together at school and we have a history.
