    SA looking at a line-up of

    Elgar
    Markram
    Hamza
    Faf
    Bavuma
    de Bruyn
    de Kock
    Maharaj
    Piedt
    Rabada
    Ngidi

    Not quite sure how 3-6 will line-up - but I think the above is most likely.

    I'm worried that they'll ad Muthusamy in place of de Bruyn, push him to seven, and replace Piedt with Philander/Nortje.
    De Bruyn 4
    Faf 5
    Bavuma 6.

    Is Gill in the Test squad at least? I know they are going to make Rohit open but in case someone has an injury or does terribly enough to get dropped after a game or two, Gill needs to be the first replacement.

    Been lots of grumble re: Pant recently. Do we expect to see him start the first test or Saha ?

    Lol, as if India is going to not provide spin friendly pitches because the opposition has Keshav Maharaj? I mean, he's a pretty decent bowler and he'll probably do pretty well but he's going to be a non-factor in India's preparation. Rightly or wrongly. Also against England and Australia at home, Shami, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma comfortably outbowled the English and Aussie pacers at home. I reckon India will go with Bumrah, Shami, Ashwin and Jadeja.

    Would India need Ashwin/Jadeja batting at number 9? Or go with 5 bowlers instead of Vihari and play all three seamers plus the two spinners?

    For all my blasé attitude and low expectations that damn 'hope' is coming to bite me again.... I know this because even keeping an eye on SA 'A' team is making my stomach clench in hope that certain players are doing well.

    I have been trying to decide on my approach.

    Normal SA belief for 95% of the years watching them is they go anywhere and beat anyone. So if we go to our toughest tour with that hope and they disappoint it will be frustrating and SA cricket will continue to show how much it has fallen.

    Go there with no hope and expect nothing and hopefully be surprised along the way probably best. Hoping more for individual growth.

    Better squads to India either side of this one ? Felt 1996/97 even though we lost we got in the mix. A few draws post 2000 before the last tour. Our record in India has been damn impressive considering.

    The Jadeja on that score card through me a little.... he has not been around that long!

    Looking at those SA squads I almost feel like this squad is potentially better, just much less experienced and hence untested.

    I wonder if, Amol, the new batting coach is with the A team or the T20 squad?

    I always say that Cronje and Rhodes get a slightly hard deal in test cricket considering the era they played their cricket and averaged 36/35. Domestically in SA when it was really strong they were 40+ averagers who scored 100s. When you look back at those 2 and then look at say Rudolph, Dippenaar, McKenzie (first time around) they struggled more than those 2 and they dominated domestics for a long time.

    I think the key to that squad above was the all-rounders we had. I mean take away Kallis/Pollock (McMillan/Symcox had retired) and you had Boje scoring 85 and Klusener scoring 97 and them chipping in with wickets. Cronje getting wickets. Crazy

    The obvious weak link is Pieter Strydom. Hardened provincial pro and Border captain though.
