    Yeah, he was an example I was thinking about too.

    Heh. Completely forgot about him. At least that's something to look forward to. Hopefully the pitches are spicy as well.

    Rain has stopped but looks like with a bit of work to do they will get on the park a bit later.

    Rassie stayed behind with test squad by the looks of things.

    Without Bumrah, I don't think they will prepare spicy pitches. Still, Steyn did well on these spinning tracks, so there is a good chance Rabada might rock it too. But he needs support from the other end, mainly Maharaj.

    Don't think they were gonna have spicy pitches with or without Bumrah, as much as India has a capable pace attack now, there's absolutely no reason to give SA a chance at an even contest when you can just kill them with spin.

    India havent really needed to prepare unplayable bunsens to smash teams at home. Their most convincing wins come on typical flat subcontinent pitches. Will be surprised if the pitches are a repeat of Nagpur 2015, as much as that'd be entertaining to watch.

    Hoping for one evil dustbowl, just for variety. India would be better off just prepping flattish pitches, but it would make for a dull series.

    A seaming wicket would be nice from a spectator's pov to get a competitive game- even Indian fans must be getting a bit bored of watching them steamroll hapless tourists. But intentionally tossing a bone this big is a bit much to ask for.

    Ravi Shastri, the India coach, has all but confirmed that Bhuvneshwar is only an ODI option going forward. Speaking to Hindustan Times on the problem of plenty in the pace department, he said, "There is Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma. How you look after each one of them is very important. Then we have Umesh Yadav, and Navdeep Saini is in the line for Tests. As far as white-ball cricket is concerned, you have Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Khaleel Ahmed in the wings. You got Deepak Chahar who has done so well."
    Bhuvi's no longer a test match bowler it seems. What a ****ing waste. He's bowled like a champ every time he's been given the opportunity.

    What part of his bowling makes them think he's better in ODIs than tests, let alone not worthy of being considered in tests? The guy averages 26 ffs in tests and 35 in ODIs for ****s sake. Insane.
